I've been so busy with school and all my free time is spent on our eat outs. But, sometimes its good to pamper a bit. So one weekend, our group decided to pay Nuat Thai Tomas Morato a visit. We usually go out for some eats but that day was special it was eats then pamper. =D
Make Your Own Spa Experience" promo package.
I chose the following package: (1,150 php - That's 150 php savings!)
- Asian Espresso Detox Body Ritual (600 php)
- 1 Hour Swedish Massage (350 php)
- Asian Espresso Detoxifying Foot Paraffin (350 php)
On the other hand, Berylle availed of a somewhat similar package: (1,150 php - That's 190 php savings!)
- Royal Contour Body Ritual (650 php)
- 1 Hour Swedish Massage (350 php)
- Orly Manicure and Pedicure (340 php)
- Pomegrate Dead Sea Salt Foot Ritual (300 php)
- 1 Hour Thai Foot Massage (250 php)
- Kleancolor Manicure and Pedicure (230 pp)
After a few minutes, we were individually escorted to our own rooms where our pampering session awaits us. We entered into the stoney steps passing by several partitioned rooms.
Some of the rooms have the flat bed for Thai massages which requires a lot of stretching. While the other rooms have Swedish beds for the Swedish massage and body scrubs. They also have rooms with salon chairs and lazy boy chairs for their hand, foot and nail services.
Aroma Therapy Massage (550 php)
The Aroma Therapy Massage is a 1 hour and 30 min massagewith a mix of both Swedish Massage and Shiatsu. At the very end , a warm aromatic bean bag back massage was performed that soothed both the body as well as the mind.

Asian Espresso Detox Body Ritual
My therapist named Siaska was very courteous. She asked me if the temperature of the wet towel was okay with me and I affirmed. Then, she applied some pressure and asked if that was also good with me and I likewise agreed. As she proceeded, I found myself relaxed in a half nap as I floated away with the calming instrumental music resting my body over the soft bedding. She first applied the cleanser gently and then the body scrub which was brushed all over my body. Then, my entire body was moisturized and coated with a mask. I was then wrapped and rolled for 20 mins. Now I know what a sushi feels like... It was kind of comforting. =p
After my detox, I was led to the shower area where I washed the white mask off my skin and prepared for my Swedish massage.
1 Hour Swedish Massage
The same therapist performed my Swedish Massage. This time, I found myself asleep except for the part where I felt some bone crunching. After our massage, I was asked if I wanted some juice or tea and I chose the latter.
Asian Espresso Detoxifying Foot Paraffin
After getting dressed, I was led to a room where the lazy boy chairs were for my foot paraffin. This was my first time to try it. My foot theraphist Len gently massaged my foot and dipped some part of it into a wet liquid to ask if the temperature was okay. As I gave her the go signal, she continue to dip it into the clear substance which I soon found out was the paraffin wax as my foot turned white with its coating.
Now this scenario looked familiar to me... Ever watched "Wanted" where Angelina Jolie would dip her whole body in the wax wherever she was wounded? I never understood the reason for it until I researched using Nuat Thai Tomas Morato's FREE wifi about it while detoxifying. =D It turns out that the paraffin treatment can help ease tense muscle and tissues making them heal faster and become softer. It has been used since ancient Roman times too.
My feet was then plastic wrapped and clothed into a foot mitten. And, it was left like so for about 20 minutes.
When Len came back, she removed the plastic and the paraffin wax from my foot as if it was a sock. It was removed in one piece without any residue.
As soon as I was finished, I checked out how my friend Berylle was doing and I suddenly envied her for her manicure. It was beautifully done.
