It's spa-rty time!
My credo as a frequent traveler is to surprise myself with destinations that nurture my spirit. The same goes for travel stops that I do. And whenever I take breaks from my sojourns, I make sure a spa is in the picture.
My recent appointment for a hotbed treatment at Manila's premier Zenyu Eco Spa at Hotel H2O (the same location of the Manila Ocean Park) got me back on a relaxed mindset. A hotbed treatment entails a guest to lounge inside a warm and humid, negative ion-infused room (wall, ceiling, and floor) which serves as a 30-minute healing treatment for bodies that are exposed daily to positive ions that allow the build up of bacteria and viruses. Think of it as a steam room but an intelligent one. This is a signature medi-spa treatment that I will be testing weekly for the next two months. With such regular visits, I hope to lessen my immune system's vulnerability to unnecessary illnesses, especially since my base is Metro Manila where air pollution is evident.
Thirty minutes into my hotbed treatment (P400+), the spa specialist or attendant inquired if I wanted to lounge a bit longer (normally guests stay 15 minutes more) to which I no longer obliged as I was excited to dip my aching feet and legs into the fish jacuzzi (P300+ for the full-body dip). Drained of reasonable perspiration, I stomped my mildly wet slippers all the way to the indoor pool where I would have a school of fish gravitate towards my lower limbs to nibble on them. The nibbling, of course, translated into a ticklish sensation only. A regular soak is meant to give the spa guest a smoother and softer skin from the dull and dead layer, resulting in in a healthier surface that's not prone to a lot of diseases.
Maybe for my next visit at Zenyu Eco Spa, I can try either a high-tech body massage or facial using the newly acquired technology from South Korea that medical experts (doctors) will be on duty to perform. These days, it's scary to get body-related treatments from just any spa that can be spotted in a street corner. Legitimate practitioners will always provide the needed security and confidence of a fulfilling spa experience, something that Zenyu Eco Spa never fails to give.
