It looks old but try experience its healing wonders. Sometimes when going to places, the looks may prove deceiving from what it offers. I've attended the Sparga Wellness Spa media launch yesterday at Roxas Boulevard, Pasay and I did not expect to experience an extraordinary healing.
From what appeared to be a simple, old-fashioned homey spa was a haven of calmness and healing beyond imagination. Media participants witnessed the treatment massage of Ms. Alice Basco who seemed to be a simple and skilled therapist. Beauty bloggers, Ms. Shen and Mrs. Bambi Dela Cruz-Dimapili were the first to experience foot treatment massages. Then, Sparga Wellness Spa proprietor, Ms. Ruth Gautier entertained questions about the spa and its services.
I've thought the concept of "Modern Hilot" was simply a combination of massages inspired by cultures until one media participant asked on how it was different from the Filipino Hilot massage with healing properties. It was really surprising to listen to Ms. Alice Basco explained every detail on how their "Modern Hilot" services were different. I believe she's the first therapist I've listened to who is knowledgeable of the treatment and articulate to clearly explain every detail.
Three healthy and delicious drinks were served to compliment the snacks, Talbos ng Kamote juice, Lemongrass and Avocado and Pandan juice. Crab and Shrimp Fresh Lumpia, Healthy Mini Burger and Penne Pasta were the choices to indulge after the treatment with sinful endings of Mango Sago and mini chocolate cakes. I was surprised to enjoy the Talbos ng Kamote juice and Fresh Lumpia that I had to take two helpings of each.
The scene was perfect with the beauty of Ms. Bambi with the beautiful presentation of the food and the beautiful butterflies flying around the veranda. After the binge on healthy snacks, we've decided to head the treatment rooms to see what they offer.
Their rooms include single and couples' with jacuzzi and the bathrooms were elegant and really comfortable considering the small spaces. They also have sauna rooms and guests will just add P100 to avail. What was prominent in the theme was the print and designs of calla lilly flowers which Ms. Gautier loves the most.
Ms. Bambi and I couldn't properly share a great spa without an experience so we've both decided to avail of their service. Ms. Ruth Gautier along with Ms. Basco noticed my left leg and I told her about the metal implant in my left ankle like I've always told all the therapist I go to in any spa. I was warned that she will do something painful to try correcting my posture because of my limping left leg. Inhaled and exhaled and after a few minutes, she asked me to stand straight and notice the difference. It was remarkably a complete relief and I felt the stiff muscles flowed blood from my left butt to my ankles.
Beauty blogger friend Bambi also experienced the same healing wonders with her scoliosis aligned so we were both curious how she did the miraculous treatment. According to Ms. Alice, she studied the skills of massage and therapeutic treatments abroad and continued to read more books about it. She developed the passion to heal after seeing many of relatives' suffering from stroke and slip discs.
She was nice enough to tell me to do exercises and be back when I've done improvements on my walking so I wouldn't waste money on having appointments and noticing very minimal progress results. Compared to all the treatments I've had to improve my condition, I never really expected a skilled yet so honest and compassionate therapist like Ms. Alice Basco of Sparga Wellness Spa. I will not be surprised one day she'd be featured in national television because of her heart and skills.
Sparga Wellness Spa also offers Ventosa with Abyanga (Indian Massage), Reiki and Clinical Massage (photo shows Ms. Kelly doing great healing Reiki treatment to a media participant). Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. It is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient's body.
I've also experienced Reiki treatment and I must say she is one of the angels brought from heaven with her optimism and healing powers like Ms. Alice. Ms. Kelly taught me many things I can improve in attitude and behavior to better improve circulation of blood in my neck. I was grateful to the event discovering a new place for healing. Sparga Wellness Spa is not just one spa to visit and relax because it heals both the body and the mind. They offer services with different types of food at their own cafe and Free Wifi to all guests - with all those, Sparga Wellness Spa is one haven for those looking for heaven on earth experience.
