De-stress in the city

A working woman’s guide to spa retreats

By Rowena Wendy Lei

Balancing work and home management are the challenges professional and business women face every day—some even have to juggle motherhood along the way. Thus, while multitasking is no longer unusual, women still need to be reminded to step back, relax, and recharge every once in a while.

Here are a few treatments that can help rejuvenate the mind and body.

Mother of Pearl Treatment

P1,680 for two hours


P680 for 45 mins.; P880 for 75 mins.

Dead Sea salt is massaged all over the body to prep the skin before the application of the mother of pearl powder, which has firming, smoothing, and antiaging properties. The body is then wrapped so the skin completely absorbs the powder. Immediately after treatment, the skin acquires instant and visible luminosity.

Qireflexology involves applying pressure on the hands and feet to improve circulation. It also promotes balance throughout the entire body.

Atlantic Sea Moist Paraffin Pedicure


Feet are soaked, scrubbed, massaged, and dipped into hot scented paraffin. Once the paraffin solidifies, the feet and legs are wrapped. The paraffin smoothens and moisturizes skin, as well as helps treat conditions like arthritis, muscle spasms, tendonitis, stiff joints, and more.

Long Beach Full Body Massage


A full hour of deeply-relaxing Swedish massage using essential oils is characterized by long flowing strokes, kneading, and gentle pounding.
