Thewi Thai Massage

Last week after Trinoma, the family headed off to our favorite massage place, Thewi Thai Massage!

So why is it the favorite? Honestly, because it gives you good value for your money. You can get a nice 1-hr full body massage for just P200. Sure they don't have a sauna bath nor a jacuzzi, but what they lack they more than make up for with their own brand of massage.

First, when you get there, you get a foot bath in lukewarm water that just feels so great.

They then bring you to really simple rooms with cots in the floor which are surprisingly comfortable.

I don't know if it's the soft music or the ambient minty scent of the place, but I drift off into a relaxed state as soon as I lie down. Thai Massage is traditionally a dry massage that involves stretching and deep kneading strokes. (Here's a copy of their brochure for more info about the technique.) Now I know some people like the oil, but I really prefer not having to feel oily or sticky after so this suits me just fine. Now the only thing I noticed was the rather mechanical formulaic feel to the whole massage--which is not really bad just disconcerting. I still feel relaxed and relieved after so I don't really care.

Then after the massage, they offer you a cup of green tea and a warm towel which does nicely to warm you inside and out.

They offer other services like a head massage, back massage and foot massage.

If you want to give it a try yourself, you can find them on 114 D. Tuazon Avenue cor. Maria Clara, Q.C. right across St. Theresa's College. They're open 7 days a week from 10 am until 2am (I think).

@camille: nope, i like that part as well, they just give u a set of clothes to wear so they'd be able to stretch and knead you properly, but other than that, you're won't need to get naked hehe

i blogged about Thewi before, too.
in my opinion, you would get better ambiance at comparable price at the TonTon Massage branch just off Banawe. Less noisy..

i just got my thai massage in thewi. the over all massage was superb! kaso lang nung pauwi na ako,na-stress ako. i gave a tip to my masahista (i forgot the name, unfortunately i only got a few coins for the tip (30 pesos)..Aba! at nagdabog ba nman ang masahista ko...(teka, obliged ba ako mag-tip sa inyo kung wala kyong bedside manners,like yawning (na maingay ha) while doing a head massage.. sana man lang dinadahan dahan nyo ang pag hawak at pag lift ng mga paa/legs namen. i think the management shall reprimand this masahista of mine. or better yet kausapin nya mga empleyado nya.. wag nman garapal sa paghingi ng tip. ni hindi nga sya nagthank you for the tip (buti nga inabutan ko pa sya)...
