Metro Manila · Massage Parlors & Spas
Looking to relax your muscles and get rid of that back pain? It may be time for a massage.
If you are looking for some quick relaxation, for example after work, massage places are a great choice. Walk in stressed and tense, enjoy a massage, walk out as yourself again. Most massage parlors also offer home service. For those withouth time, some parlors provide express back massages, ten minutes for around 100 Pesos. Massage parlors can be found all over the Megacity, unlike spas. They, too, are a stressed soul's best friend. A spa does not only invite you to a relaxing massage but also offers many more amenities and services such as jacuzzi, sauna, facial care, and sometimes even food to treat body and soul. It is appropriate to tip your massage therapist.
Wensha Spa offers not only regular spa services such as manicure, pedicure, sauna, jacuzzi, pool, and different kinds of massages and body scrubs but also a buffet to satisfy all your cravings at once. Wensha Spa is open 24/7 and therefore allows recreation whenever you might need it. Only the dining facility and the massage area are co-ed. All other areas are separate for man and women.
The Spa is the most popular brand for Megacitizens. This high-end spa attends to all your needs and much more. Apart from the regular services, The Spa offers special treatments such as a laser centre. The Spa is very much liked by couples as it offers private lounges where couples or groups can share tea and some amenities together (such as pool) before enjoying their private massage treatments. The Spa has branches all over the Megacity. For more information, visit the Spa's website. If you like it, don't forget to apply for the Spa membership!
