Olive Nail and Body Spa

Sometimes, no matter how good a spa treatment is, it can be ruined the moment you need to ride to go back home. If you're commuting, the dirt from the street goes directly to your oiled face and body then you can't take a bath and that can be a total nightmare. If you have a car, instead of just sleeping and relaxing, you still need to battle traffic.

This is one of the reasons why I love getting home service for massages. It's more convenient and truly relaxing. Sometimes though, I feel like I'm not getting my entire money's worth because the therapists seem more into doing a job well done when it's at the spa place rather than at home. Maybe it's just me?

When I was at my sister's place, we decided to try out Olive Home Service Spa. We were in the Ortigas area and didn't really feel like battling traffic so we booked a home massage. Surprisingly, they arrived right on schedule.

We needed the massage because we believe that it's necessary for our well being. If you don't believe me, here's a list of the different benefits you can get.

Another beauty of home service massage is the comfort of just being at home. It just feels more comfortable which means you are more at ease. Add a really good therapist who can do a hard massage without making you feel like you got beat up and it's absolutely perfect. Jane, my therapist, knew what she was doing. Every touch of her hand, every stroke was meant to relax and she kneaded the soft tissues the way it's supposed to be.

As the best-known type of bodywork performed today in spas, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body and boy did she achieve this goal. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation, it kind of resets your soul, your mind, and your body.

I was truly relaxed afterward. When she stretched my body, it just felt like I was in heaven.

My sister, on the other hand, went for the hot stone massage. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

The ancient ritual of a hot rock massage uses special stones placed on key energy hot rock points of your body, with the warmth reaching deep into your muscles, to melt away tension and stress. These smooth therapeutic stones have been polished by the waves of the ocean, and are filled with natural healing energy.

Overall, my sister and I were definitely relaxed after we had our massage. Before our therapists have even left, my sister was already planning on when she would book them next.

To book them yourself, here are their details.

They also do nail spa so you can have them finish off with beautiful nails. Try out Orly's neutral collection too!
