I felt a sore back last Thursday, as I was on my way home from work. I thought of getting a massage to ease it up.
Three considerations in mind:
1. First, I didn’t want to travel far enough for a massage.
2. I didn’t want to spend a lot for it.
3. I didn’t want lotion or oil slathered on my skin coz the weather is too hot.
So I settled with going to Tien Hom Thai Massage at Granada Street in New Manila. I visited their branch in D. Tuazon, and it was a good experience. No-nonsense, straightforward. I was very satisfied.
I chose a 90 minute massage. 60 minute body massage and 30 minute foot massage. All for P375. Not bad…
The amenities are very simple, black curtains, firm mattresses, a simple change of comfortable clothes.
Malou, my therapist really gave me a beating. Three days after the massage, I still feel the soreness. Maybe it was too hard. But I had a good feeling afterwards.
During the massage, I was brought back to Thai Massage heaven, and I recalled the massage I had in Bangkok. My Thai friend brought me to Healthland. It was a huge complex and I was told this was where the Thais go for a really good massage. Four years ago, they charged 450 baht for a two hour massage. Checking their site, I see that their rates have not changed.
So give Tien Hom a try, you’ll get your money’s worth.
Just remind the therapist not too go too hard on you. 😀
