Just right outside Rockwell, Makati, near the hottest nightspot in the Metro, Pobalacion – we discovered Chang Thai Massage Spa.
The sight of the signage gives me a feeling of comfort in a busy corner of Kalayaan and Algier Streets. Based on the location, you would expect services to be of high pricing – but I was pleasantly surprised to check the services menu. We picked a full body scrub + Swedish Massage for only Php 850! That’s a 3-hour pampering session for the tired mind and body.
There are 8 massage beds, with curtains providing division and privacy to the guests. The masseuses are very courteous and accommodating at informing you when they are entering your massage space. I wouldn’t say that the facilities are superb, but they are clean, comfortable and decent.
We were provided slippers and disposable underwear.
And as soon as we changed (or should I say, undressed), the procedure started. We were scrubbed using Olive Salt and Milk Honey that smells so good – I felt like a baby. It helps exfoliate and soften the skin. I have been meaning to go to a body scrub pampering after I got chicken pox last month. I felt like a troll – so this session was perfect for me.
Our whole body was scrubbed – and I appreciate my masseuse for being so nice to cover me with warm towel when I said that I felt chilly (yes, the temperate inside the spa feels like that of the Arctic!).
We were “marinated” for several minutes. Then, it was time to take a warm shower. They made sure there is a fresh towel for you to use after you wash.
Back to the massage bed, my masseuse started with the Swedish Massage. It felt really good to loosen tight muscle knots and just feel your body move without the pain.
It was a relaxing night for me and my friend. I seriously just want to go straight to dreamland after the session.
To complete the pampering experience, we were served warm water (or tea, if you prefer), and towel to freshen up the face.
Chang Thai Massage Spa really offers a good deal for its location and services. I love that the massage spa is open from 12 noon to 2:00 am. Always love a good massage after office-hours.
The best part, you can enjoy a good snack or dinner at the BBZ restaurant at the first floor.
