Spa client died due to High Blood Pressure

I finally got a confirmation that a client in Althea Spa died.  Based on reports the deceased had high blood pressure and was taking medication.  Just a month before the incident he was admitted to the ICU for high blood pressure.  His high blood pressure was triggered by the massage.

This is a warning to all spa goers.  If you have high blood pressure, you are taking medications or have any ailment, consult your doctor before getting a massage.

Some therapists do ask their clients if they have ailments or high blood pressure but again this really depends on the client.  If the client lies about these things what can the therapist do?  Igo ra baya na sila mo tuman sa client.

I hope this serves as a warning to everyone not only to spa goers but spa establishments itself.  Even if the client is young, the spa has to ask questions regarding their health.  Mas maayo gani nga ang receptionist mangutana na gyud sa client bago mag assign ug therapist.  They have to screen their clients first and warn them of the dangers of getting a massage with high blood pressure.

Amarela Spa (formerly Red Fern) and Ceasars Palace Spa Transfer Location

Someone called my attention that Amarela Spa in Divisoria has transferred besides Redtail Shrimps and in front of Sentro Restaurant along A. Velez Street.  They took over the space of Anons Lechon.

Mr. R of Elysium

Masseur Review

A friend of mine kept of talking about this cute therapist in Elysium.  How his massage was good and everything.  That I should try the guy because he is worth it. I told him that Elysium has a bad reputation for just ES not a good massage. But my friend kept on insisting that I go and would not stop talking about it.  Magmahay gyud daw ko kung dili nako ma hire ni siya.  Okay! Fine!  So I went to Elysium but I was still skeptical of this guy.

So I got Mr. R. as suggested by my friend.  So there I was waiting for Mr. R.  He came in, washed my feet and guided me to my cubicle.

He is around 5'6 (167 centimeter), fair skinned, chinito, has the looks, lean but no abs.  Not athletic.

I checked the time just before he came in and started the massage.

The massage started well, he knows how to give a massage BUT then I observed he was a bit quick.  He would give a few rubs on my back and legs and that was it.  I knew this was going to be a short massage.  Wala gyud ko na sayop.  All I could think was my friends gushing review of this guy. Bwisit gyud ning akong amigo!

Mr. R started rubbing my tight to make me get erect and a bit of the chest.  He then went close to my ear and whispered..."sir, human na...gusto ka mag pa extra?"  Mao na to?  That was it?  That was the massage?

I wanted 500 for ES but he insisted 700 Pesos.  Kay lamion daw gyud niya.  Okay...fine!  He started nibbling my nipple with his teeth which I found uncomfortable.  I kept on pushing him away.  It did not like it.  It was a disappointing ES.

When he went out to get the hot towel, I checked the time and massage including the ES was done in under 40 minutes.  Under time again.

So after this uneventful encounter I talked to my friend about what happened.  He was surprised I was disappointed of Mr. R.  My friend was clearly upset and then blurted out "tamili ug arte ka kaayo". Say what?!! So I responded back..."kibalo ka?  ikaw wala kay pili, wala kay standards nga kung mu tukar gani ang uwag nimo miski iro mu tuwad ka na dayon! unya mu ingon ka dayon the best sex ever!"  End of friendship! hahahaha

Conclusion

I take facts as it is.  I have a criteria to follow for my review.  Kung pangit ang spa, PANGIT gyud!  Kung walay ayo ang masahista, WALA gyud!  If you do not meet my criteria, you fail.

As for Mr. R?  He clearly failed.  Good bye Mr. R and my former friend hehehe

Fai Thai Velez Branch Review

Spa Review

Finally went back to Fai Thai along Velez Street.  It has been a long time.

The receptionist was pitching to me their expensive massages but I said no thanks, I wanted the cheapest massage.

I was assigned to a therapist named J.D.  I was asked to sit as usual and wait for my therapist.  When he showed up I was like...damn!  He was tall, well built, but the face was just okay.  Not really my type.  However if you add everything up, he has that appeal.

After the customary foot wash, I was told to proceed to my cubicle.

I took note of the time and did not remove my underwear.  Again I wanted to see how far this guy would go.

The massage was a bit rough.  No finesse.  Later on I asked the receptionist and he told me he was still new to the job.  No wonder.

While he was giving me a massage, he was breathing heavily.  He was like out of breath.  Later did I also know he was a smoker.  He went outside for a smoke after the massage.

He basically sat on my legs and I could feel his tight and firm tights.  I was loving it.

As the massage progressed, he asked me the usual questions..."first time pa nimo dinhi sir" and so on.

To cut the story short.  The entire massage including the hot towel rub was around 50 to 55 minutes.  No ES was offered.

Some of you might say "sayang".  That I should have insisted of getting ES but again, if no offer was made I would not insist.

Conclusion

Would I get JD again?  Probably but a few months from now when he has more experience in massage.  Kulang pa ug experience.

My Spa Review

While I was walking around City Central School I spotted this new spa.

So I went in and inquired about their services.  Their Swedish massage costs around 250 Pesos while their Shiatsu is 280 Pesos.

Looking around the interior the place looked familiar.  Where have I seen this unfortunate decor?  They tried to imitate the "Forest" ambiance with plastic leaves and hanging vines.

There was no foot bath.  I was immediately asked to go to my cubicle in the 2nd floor.  The 2nd floor door was just a rough plywood door like they just placed there for the sake of it.  When I opened the door, there was more of the unfortunate decor.  More plastic leaves and hanging vines attached to a thin wire.  The floor was covered with plastic linoleum.  


Add caption
I was told to enter the cubicle and then I realized that the place actually looked like Mahumpay!  It was tragic.  Murag boarding house nga gi himo lang basta maka kwarta lang ang tag iya.

The cubicle curtain partitions were hung by a thin wire.  Just wires!  And the bed foam?  It was so thin that I could feel the hard plywood pressing on my entire body.  They could not even afford to patch up the other side of the wall.  You could see the wall support from the other side.



To add insult to injury, the massage was bad.  I did not like it.  I think it was also the bed that was really making the massage uncomfortable.

I wanted the massage to end so I could get out of the place.

Conclusion

They were charging people 250 Pesos and the spa looks like a cheap boarding house.  It was not worth my time and money.

A spa is supposed to be a place to relax.  That includes visual stimulation and relaxation.  How can you relax when all you can see are roughly patched up wood partitions and decor that were placed just for the sake of it.  Basta basta nalang gi himo para lang tawagon nga spa.
