After a day’s hard work, a relaxing body massage is one way to release our mind and body stress. It releases tension and pain in the muscles, allowing them to move more freely. To relieve my body stress, I went to Urban Escape Spa for a relaxing body massage. From the list of their relaxing message services, I choose Swedish massage.
Swedish massage is a relaxing full body massage that stimulates blood circulation and soothe tensed muscles most common in the West. It was called Swedish massage because it was pioneered by a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling in 1776-1839. The Urban Escape Spa is clean, hygienic and the attendants are courteous. There is a locker room wherein you can leave your valuables and things inside the assigned locker while having the spa. Before you take the full body massage, you can take a shower and take a steam bath. They also have a Jacuzzi tub but I do not see a spa cover. The spa area for men is separated from the women’s area. You can also choose a VIP room if you wanted to have more privacy. The relaxing full body massage is 60 minutes.
At the end of the session, I feel revive. Urban escape at Timog, Quezon City have a good service just right in the budget. The regular price for a Swedish massage is Php490. If you wanted aromatic oils, you can request and add Php100 ($2.30) to the regular price. You can also try other type of massage such as Japanese Shiatsu and reflexology. At home, I feel more flexible to do my mommy multitasking and more comfortable with my body posture.
