Body Tune: The Traditional Thai Massage experience

For the past weeks I've been experiencing back pain, shoulder pain and leg cramps. With the everyday stress, daily routines and activities, house chores, taking care of my daughter and hubby, being a commuter blogger (the struggle is real when you take the MRT everyday and I know a lot of you can relate. :D) my body is in dire need of a head to toe pampering sesh. Though I badly needed a massage I was not able to get around to do it. Good thing Mommy Bloggers of the Philippines treated us mommies to a one-hour of pure bliss. Aaahhh!!

Body Tune: The Traditional Thai Massage is located at the 5th floor, Building B of SM Megamall. I'm familiar with Body Tune but didn't know they offer a lot of services aside from the massage.

Here's the list and their prices.

Before our sesh we were given an opportunity to tour the place. Body Tune has 10 masseuse that can attend to you. You can also call them for appointments or be a walk-in guest. While waiting for your turn you can also try their mani/pedi services or get a facial treatment.

Before the massage you can opt to try their dry sauna and have a quick shower. Too bad I was not able to experience the sauna since I am mostly excited to have a massage right way. hehe! :)

Inside the private room.

We were given a red/orange robe and adjustable shorts each before we start.

For your valuable stuff you can keep them in your locker inside your room.

The smile of excitement! Hahaha! My masseuse name was Sol and she explained to me the difference of each massages such as shiatsu, thai massage, balinese, swedish. Honestly, hindi ako familiar with the different types of massages since I always tell the masseuse lang or point to them what body part need attention the most. Since I have pointed out to her what I needed (back and shoulder blades), my body need a balinese kind of massage. 

I researched what balinese means and according to wikipedia Balinese massage techniques include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion, and application of essential oils. The practitioner may also apply stone massage. The combination of manual therapy and aromatherapy is intended not only to relax the patient and loosen facial restrictions, but to stimulate the lymphatic system and the flow of blood.

After a relaxing 1 hour we were offered hot tea and hot towel.

A very, very satisfied me! hahahah! Promise! I felt so relieved afterwards. Good job to my masseuse, Sol! :)
