Blue Water Day Spa Foot Massage

One lazy afternoon, after wanting to have a complete package of massage, mud wrap and body scrub, I had to stick with Foot Massage. Don't ask why. :p I was in Makati that time and decided to try Blue Water Day Spa. A friend mentioned that she went there about a week ago and was satisfied with the service. Blue Water doesn't have a wet floor though, I'm not sure if they do in their other branches. But in their Makati branch, they don't. I went in for a 30-minute foot massage for P270.00.

There were not much people for I went on a weekday. I asked the receptionist if they have private rooms, and she told me that they do have private rooms for body treatments (such as body massages), and foot massages/spas are done in the common room. Good thing there was nobody in the common room, so I had it all to myself.

Again, I wasn't able to bring my camera, so there's no photo. The therapist brought in the foot spa, but instead of the usual hot tea, they used bubbly soap and water. I soaked my feet for about 10 minutes. I was already pretty bored that time and was so happy when the therapist finally came back in.

She started massaging my feet and used a spray instead of the regular cream as lotion. I dozed off, but I knew I wasn't fully satisfied. I'm used to and fond of the Thai massage where they use hard pressure and reflexology. This time, they used Xiammen massage which was more for relaxing. We finished about 30 minutes to 40 minutes all in all.

They also didn't massage my head, back or arms. According to the receptionist, that service is Foot Refloxology, and it's about P460 if I'm not mistaken.

So I think it's pretty obvious that I wasn't that satisfied with the massage I got. I'm thinking maybe I'll give them another chance next time. Maybe I'll try their foot reflexology next time. If you're into light hand relaxing massage, maybe you'd like it. But as for me, I really like hard pressure massages, and even though I asked the therapist to exert more and make it harder, it's still too light for my liking.

Have another so-so experience with a spa in a mall. I'll post an entry about that next time. :)
