Big Apple Express Spa

I love massage so everytime there’s an opportunity to try other spa in the Metro, I’m always up for it!
Before heading to work, me and my colleague decided to try Big Apple at Eastwood City where our work is located.  I already made a reservation a day before, I already made reservation so that just in case it’s fully booked, we can easily be accommodated.  The receptionist named Rochelle is nice and pleasant. She immediately told me as soon as I arrived that she will tell the masseuse to prepare the room for us. I ask for a separate room.
We opted to try the Manhattan Full Body Massage. It’s a combination of stretching, pinching and carressing of the entire body.  My masseuse is Daisy. She seems to know what she is doing. I ask a couple of questions about the massage she would be doing to me as well as the other services they offered to their customers, and she confidently answer my questions with ease.
The session has begun, I lay down, face inside the hole of the bed. She started on my legs, then back. I told her I want it moderate, not too not hard. She did some stretching on my legs, then slightly in my back as she pull my hands from the back. After about 30 minutes, she told me face her and lay on my back. I told her I dont want facial massage, as well as on my chest and stomach. She massage my arms and my head, then on my legs afterward. A couple of stretching and then she told me to sit while she would pull me until I reach my toes. She also ask me to do indian seat as she will do some stretching. After almost 1 hour of relaxation, the session has ended. I asked for a warm towel to remove oil from my body. My overall experience with Big Apple is quite ok. For 299 fee, it’s quite affordable for a regular massage. On my next visit, I would like to try their Balinese Massage. ~~09.06.12/Eastwood City

North Haven Spa

A visit to Baguio City is not complete without dropping by at North Haven Spa. They offer a one-of-a-kind mountain spa experience that will make you come back to this place.  Sadly, for those living in the Metro, you have to travel up north to be able to visit this place.  They offer different kind of packages depending on one’s needs but my favorite is The Strawberry Bliss Package. The spa is located in Ferguson Road, a little bit hard to find. But once you reach the place, you would never imagine that there’s such a place like this in the quiet neighborhood. It is decorated with the traditional Cordillera charm, the soothing scent and welcoming staff would greet you.  The kind of service they provide to their guests are beyond expectations. A spa experience in this summer capital of the country is truly heavenly. ~~~05.05.11 / Baguio City, Benguet
