Massage/Signs



Spas and massage parlors have mushroomed all over the place these past couple of years.  And not all are as seedy as one would think.   Getting a massage after a hectic day seems to be the norm nowadays.  From posh to neighborhood spas, massage therapists are in demand.  

Mang Cesar is a blind masseur who has a massage cottage in front of the historic Manila Hotel.  

Senses & Nerves is a 15-minute walk from my apartment.  I pay Php300 (about 8 dollars) for a 60-minute body massage.  When I'm in the mood for a sauna, jacuzzi and body massage, I drive for 20 minutes and pay Php1,000 (approximately US$25) for an hour's Swedish massage.

I am a massage therapist - and I charge a lot more than this!

Massage 'parlour' makes it seem seedy and less healthy.

You certainly get a lot for your money at these two places. What great deals. No wonder you use them both. each one fits a need. genie

You are getting quite the deal on those prices! A 1-hour massage in our area costs between (U.S.) $60-$80. Reflexology is even more - about $90 for 30 minutes. I hope your prices remain reasonable so you may continue to enjoy the services.

That would be an extremely low price over here. (Worth it once in a while anyway though!)
