In this stressful and fast-paced country we live in, most of us find ourselves slumped with so much work and deadlines, stuck in horrendous traffic, and dealing with all the problems and struggles in our lives. In fact, according to Gallup’s Annual Global Emotions Report that was released last year, the Philippines is listed as the second most stressed country in the world. Stress can be so overwhelming that only sleep and extended vacation could relieve the pressure. But not everyone has time for that. So, how?
A new facility at Okada Manila could be the solution for people who are always on the go. The Sole Retreat Foot Spa and Reflexology Center is here to be your bestie and life-saver. It is also managed by the team behind The Retreat Spa, which was recently nominated for Asia-Pacific Hotel Spa of the Year in the International World Spa and Wellness Awards 2020.
In Eastern Medicine, the foot is an important gateway for one’s health. Traditional Chinese practitioners of foot reflexology believe that it can be used to prevent and even cure health problems. This stems from the belief that there are reflex zones located in the foot that are directly connected to the head through vital organs. In modern times, foot massage is seen as a way to soothe and relax.
The Sole Retreat Foot Spa and Reflexology Center offers high-quality spa, beauty, wellness, and grooming treatments complemented by an exclusive range of products. Heal your spirit with Ingham Method that uses rhythmic finger and thumb walking technique that gives the benefit of pressure point therapy without the pain. The second signature treatment to stimulate good health is Asian Reflexology that uses deep finger, thumb- knuckle pressure, and rubbing technique where pain represents the sensitivity of the nerve endings, which should diminish over a series of treatments. Rejuvenate yourself with foot reflexology and other full-body traditional Asian massage techniques plus western facials and advanced hand/foot care.
For a full relaxation and an overall luxurious spa experience, The Sole Retreat Foot Spa and Reflexology Center is equipped with 22 individual luxury foot spa thrones and 1 private lounge with 5 thrones. Each throne is adjustable to cater to a full-body dry-massage, facial, manicure/pedicure, nail art service, or even eyelash enhancement.
This modern foot reflexology center transports guests to a place that can help them physically recharge and mentally decompress. The tranquil and contemporary setting is conducive to make every guest feel lighter on their feet, grounded and connected, and revitalized after every treatment. Wellness and grooming services can be delivered fully-clothed individually or simultaneously to supplement your active lifestyle especially if you are pressed for time. Should you not want your clothes to be used for the massage, a massage pajamas are available upon request.
The therapeutic journey only takes an hour to an hour and a half. All one has to do is enjoy a ten minute warm foot soak with shoulder and neck massage, then choose a treatment, and cap it off with a ten minute leg massage, full-body stretch, and application of aroma therapeutic sap patches to address specific needs.
