Althea Spa

Last year my friend told me that a male therapist in Althea Spa forced him to get extra service even though he did not need one.  So finally after months of curiosity, I went there to check out if my friends story is true (Journalist ang peg? hahaha)

Althea is located along JR Borja Street, adjacent to Loft Inn.  It opens around noon time and closes around midnight.  During weekends, they close late like around 2am.

The spa offers the usual massage including lymphatic.  I got Swedish massage which costs 200 Pesos. The color green was screaming all over the spa.  It was just too much.  When it came time to wash my feet, I had to go to a corner where there was a tiled sink for you to dip in your feet.

I was never able to ask for the name of the therapist.  I did not felt the need to ask.  So I was brought up to the 2nd floor and again GREEN decor!  When I got in the cubicle, the bed was on the floor and they only had a towel for you.  No problem at all, but then when I saw curtain partitions, I freaked out.  It was so thin that I could see clearly the bed, pillow, towel, everything on the other side!  Luckily the other guests were on the other end.  If there was another person at that time, I would have said NO.  I did not take off my underwear for fear that if someone got in the other cubicle, it would be a one hell of a show.

The massage was fine, not much issue with it.  The therapist himself?  He was not my type. The therapist was cautious with his hands that it did not hit sensitive parts of my body.  After the back massage, the therapist poured powder on my back.  I am not really a fan of powder.  

To my surprise after the massage the therapist offered me something to drink.  That was something I really missed in spas today.  They used to do this but they stopped a few years ago.

The therapist did not offer ES.  As in wala.  So now I wonder, was he a new therapist?  or the spa made changes to their staff?

So would I go back to Althea for a massage?  If they changed their curtain partitions, yes but if they don't...hell NO!  Makita gyud ka sa sulod.
