Happy Monday! Harnessing positive vibes, on with another pampering post. This is an overdue post, another highlight of my not-so-recent Manila field trip (shopping and cruising included) was a treat to The Spa in Rockwell. I had a lot of time (and tired feet) to spare at the Powerplant Mall, while waiting for my hubby. More often than not, I like to kill time by getting a lavish "me" time by going to a spa. The stingy me was hoping to get it from a more mid-end spa salon, but I only had The Spa as a choice in Rockwell, at least non showed when I googled for spa choices. The Spa offers such luxurious indulgence, of course it comes a bit pricey too.
The area is not to be missed, the facade comes with a beautifully lighted area.
I didn't want to get a full-body massage, since we're leaving for a trip, I didn't want to sport sore back just in case the therapist became too fond of my back nodules. I'd like to leave them untouched for a while since they're not really bothering me. But my feet are killing me, and you ought to know I'm OC to my feet too, I like to pamper them. A slight darkening and corns bother me, a lot, I like to be in preventive mode. ;-D In fact, modesty aside, I get compliments for them, see an up close look of them here. I wanted to go for the Oriental Foot Therapy, but they seemed to lack the oil needed for the treatment, so I ended up getting the Peppermint Foot Scrub for Php 650 Deluxe Room (no access to wet floor).
|The Spa at The Rockwell Powerplant Mall at the R2 Level|
|An elegant receiving area.|
|Beautiful hallway as always. The door to the right is for the foot treatments.|
|Reclining plush seats for the Deluxe foot treatments. Although they're housed in a common room, there's about three chairs in the room.|
|The Peppermint Foot Scrubs included a foot soak, scrub, and a foot reflex massage for 60 minutes.|
|The massage was equally nice.|
|All is well indeed, especially ending it with an even more relaxing hot tea.|
