Jasmine Therapeutic Spa: Relaxation At Its Best

          I chanced upon a spa near my residence during my rare visit back home in Quezon City. It was in Bristol street which is a few blocks away from the entrance of Lagro. Curiosity got the best of me but more than that is my need for a solution to my back pain and tired feet. So much for being on the go almost seven days a week! I heard they have premium service and I did not hesitate because I really need this pampering.

Jasmine Therapeutic Spa is not their first branch according to the owner, they have been in the business for a long time and they surely know their stuff.

It was actually recommended by my friend who happens to be living in Quezon City as well. As they say, word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising.

The spa is located in front of the AMA building which is exactly where I got off from the PUV I took and it wasn't a hassle to reach. I had to remove my shoes and wear the provided slippers most probably to maintain cleanliness of the place. Upon entering, the attendant greeted me with a warm smile. The waiting area has two green canvass sofas with magazines on the side, the temperature of the room is quite cool and the place looks new judging by the paint of the walls that are painted white and lavender. The rooms are lit with Himalayan salt lamps and the scent of the room was pleasant due to the air humidifier/purifier. They have done a great job maintaining order and tidiness. Plants give a relaxing feel and the attractive, minimal decoration on the walls makes the room classy. It was not noisy at all even though it is located beside the highway since the glass doors eliminate sounds outside. The place itself is not too big but enough for three rooms with a single and couple rooms so partners can still bond while having their relaxation. 

There I was on super comfy reclining leather chair ready to try try something new. I availed of the Foot relexology and back massage. The usual service I get for my feet is gentle and soothing but this was equally satisfying. 

At first I was surprised but then I have adjusted after a few minutes. It started with a foot massage with oil applied and spread on my feet. The pressure of the knuckles applied by the licensed massage therapist will really get to you. I can not help but close my eyes when deep pressure is applied but it was all worth it.

After that, I had a deep pressure massage for my back. It was followed by application of hot moist packs on my arms and back which lasted for about 20 minutes. As a Physical therapist, I am not new to this procedure but honestly, I have never tried it. I never knew how my patients felt back then. The warmth was just right and is similar to the comfort of having a warm bath. At the same time there were electrodes placed at the skin of my back to give some therapeutic Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS or TNS). It is the use of electric current to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

According to www.livestrong.com the benefits of Foot reflexology are as follows:

  • Relaxation
  • Improved circulation (Reflexology can improve blood circulation in the feet and throughout the body. The gentle stroking of the feet and the application of certain hand and finger techniques improves blood flow to vital organs. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to these organs, nourishing body tissues. If a part of the body is injured, foot reflexology can help repair the injured tissue.)
  • Reduction of Pain
  • Regularity (Foot reflexology can bring balance when constipation is an issue. Stimulation of the intestine, colon and other corresponding reflexes can make elimination easier and return it to a normal state.
  • Improved Memory (Because oxygen is required to keep the cells of the body in a healthy state, foot reflexology can help to deliver vital oxygen to brain cells. Stimulation of the brain reflexes on the feet improves circulation of blood to the head. Foot reflexology, when administered routinely, will help improve a forgetful mind.) 
  • Improved Relationship (It can make your relationship stronger. Touching the feet can be sensual and relaxing, and reflexology can put your partner in a state of relaxation that will heighten the lovemaking experience. Giving your partner a reflexology session is a wonderful expression of love and caring.)

Massage has its advantage too. It actually increases flexibility. Study shows that when a person’s body is massaged with precise pressure applied on their muscles, it helps tone your muscles by stretching them and improving their functioning. Apart from this, massage performed for an extended period of time helps reduce flab and gives your muscles more tone.

Rates for morning is different from the evening. Their current promos are: Avail massage for 9x and get the 10th for free and 10 + 1 free (Swedish massage). Be sure to take advantage of it before it ends. Below is a list of their prices.

Everybody deserves a me-time. You deserve pampering. It was my first time to get Foot refloxogy and for the totally-relaxing feeling from certified and trained massage therapists at a reasonable price, I can say that I will avail it again! Jasmine Therapeutic Spa is located at Bristol street near AMA building and get that long overdue self-reward.
