Happy Manic Monday people!!! I had a wonderful week last week! I promised everyone I will do a couple of reports for the stuff I've done! The highlight for the week was a spa therapy experience which was the best thing I've done because I haven't had any massages or spa treatments for almost a year! I've been caught up with so many stuff and with such hectic schedule, the only time for myself is my "stay at home" personal treatment! So this will be the first after many months for a real "me" time. I want to thank Emily, the Marketing Executive of The Spa, for the invitation!
I visited The Spa, Greenbelt 1 branch for The Spa Purifying Moroccan Mud Therapy. I am excited to try the treatment because it purifies and cleanses the skin as well as retain moisture, moisture retention - a magical phrase for dry skinned like myself!
I arrived 30 minutes earlier than my scheduled appointment, I was taken aback a bit with the nice "Greek" ambiance, it looks intimidating at first but the wonderful smile from the staffs made me comfortable at once! I felt like a goddess from America's Next Top Model walking towards the reception area! A girl can work it out right?
The waiting area is quite comfortable and you can sit down and relax while you wait to be called. You can feel at ease too that your loved ones will be comfortable waiting for you as you pamper yourself.
Wonders: "Who's that pretty lady sitting and waiting?" hahahaha
As I was called to go up for my treatment, I was told that the left side of the door are for males and the right side are for females. There are also private rooms for couples! I really like it! I love privacy! Not that I'm afraid of paparazzis! I just want my privacy on semi-naked times like these! hahaha
Now let's talk about the treatment I tried! It's called The Spa Purifying Moroccan Mud Therapy, a 60 minute treatment of pure bliss and relaxation.
Envelopment in a layer of warm mud enriched with pure volcanic-based minerals, increases pure wellness by reducing muscle aches and pains, balancing the whole body system to promote beauty from the inside and the body's skin to a youthful optimum health. Your body will surely radiate and achieve a delightful sense of utter renewal and well being.
I had a quick shower first then went for a relaxing sauna to calm my tired muscles from a whole day's activities. The treatment started by spraying and brushing my entire body. I was a bit hesitant with exfoliation but this scrubbing was done with such gentle hands that I nearly fell asleep.
Afterwards, my whole body was applied with warm mud that's mixed with the rassoul powder. The warm mud application stimulates and releases impurities as the skin absorbs enriching minerals which makes the body radiates healthy glow as it deeply hydrates it. I was then wrapped with a plastic sheet and fleece blanket cocoon style for approximately 15 minutes accompanied with a relaxing scalp massage. A quick note from author, if you are claustrophobic, do let the staffs know as this treatment may overwhelm you!
After the wrapping process was done, I was unwrapped and asked to soak in a hi-tech jacuzzi bath which made me feel like a princess with bubbles that I can play with! :) I had another quick shower after and while my body was still damp, the application of body moisturizer was done for finishing touch. I like the fact that my whole body does not feel greasy at all!
I am very particular with post treatment area. I want a relaxing place to change, to dry my hair, to have some retouch and The Spa definitely passed my watchful eyes and OC-ness with flying colors! Some simple amenities like body lotion, powder, blowdryer combs and brushes are available and I love the fact that their combs and brushes are well sanitized.
Relaxed and recharged after the treatment. Even the hubby said I look refreshed!
Check out The Spa website for more services. They have branches at Trinoma, Bel-Air, Greenbelt, Alabang, Acropolis and The Fort.
The Purifying Moroccon Mud Therapy costs Php1,900 (approx $41.00) for non-members and Php1,700 (approx $37.00) for members. It looks quite pricey but the relaxation and the experience is worth it! I will definitely come back and invite my mom for a special QT (quality time).
Have you had a luxurious body treatment?
Willing to try?
