If you're single on V-Day, channel all the love toward yourself and your fellow single girl friends, spoil yourself, and get the pampering you deserve. You don't have to go all out and blow your budget on an out-of-town trip or salon or spa session. We discovered Sparga Wellness Spa, a new haven for Cosmo girls who need refuge from all the stress and toxicity that comes with their kickass careers, right smack between Makati and Pasay City.
You'd instantly feel at home with the spa's architecture (it really is a spa built inside an old Spanish house), antique furnishings, and wood-paneled walls. Their friendly and accommodating staff will make you feel oh-so welcome--you can be assured they'll attend to your specific needs. First-time clients, even those from the provinces, come back to this place because of its exceptional service.
Where To Go:
Sparga Wellness Spa is located at #1 Sta. Escolastica St. cor. Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City. Operating hours are from 8:30PM to 11PM, Monday through Saturday, and 12PM to 11PM on Sunday. Call (02) 836-9143 for appointments and inquiries.
What To Try:
Sparga makes sure that every client gets a "personalized" service, depending on their body's needs. So, if you have back problems, chronic headaches, neck pains, muscle cramps, foot pain, or even emotional stress, just go ahead and tell them. They'll make sure to focus on your "problem areas," through their specialized methods of Shiatsu, Swedish, and combination massages, at P500.
Sparga also offers Modern Hilot, which, according to owner Ruth Gautier, "can rejuvenate one’s mind and body without the usual pain associated with this treatment." We highly recommend it for those with stubborn aches and pains that just won't go away. Looking for emotional and mental balance? Ask them for a Reiki session, a refreshing treatment for the mind and body, which helps drive away all those bad vibes.
Some customers even get a massage for aesthetic purposes--to get smoother and softer skin, or healthier and shinier hair. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the oils they use. This is because massage improves the circulation of blood throughout the body, which, in turn, can improve the condition of the skin and scalp. We actually tried this ourselves, and the results were instantaneous!
The spa also has other facilities you can use, such as sauna, steam bath, hot tub, and shower. They also have double rooms, so feel free to visit it with your gal pal (or your boyfriend, if you're a coupled-up chick reading this). After an invigorating pampering session, you can enjoy a sumptuous, healthy meal at Sparga's indoor garden cafe.
