If you ask me what's the most abused part of my body, I'll be very quick to say: MY FEET!
Needless to say, our feet endure the most pressure from our weight. I'm not very light, and my activities, though not sporty, are very active. I commute to work once a week, I like walking around, using fire exit stairs instead of elevators (I'm devoted to saving energy), doing marketing and groceries for the business, and if my schedule permits, I run some laps and play badminton.
And though I'm so into flats lately, my first love is and will always be high heeled shoes. Back in my the days, when my energy level was unbelievable, you'll never catch me wearing shoes less than 3 inches high. I still remember how mad I was when one of my friend played a bad joke and faked her death/accident. We, being very good friends, cut our class, and run to the hospital. We literally RUN only to find out it's all a hoax, which is fine with me, except that, I WAS WEARING MY NEW, 3.5 INCHES HIGH, CARAMEL ULTRA POINTED PUMPS.
The same pretty pumps which I saved 2 weeks worth of allowance for, the same pretty pumps I dreamed about the day after I saw it on the mall rack, the same pretty pumps that left me with blisters and sore legs for 3 days, though i never blamed my shoes and rather blamed my friend.
Last night, I had a foot-related discovery. A hidden nook, where my tired lower extremeties were bent, twisted, pulled, pushed, dribbled, pricked and slapped back to its glorious, refreshed state.The wonderful discovery of NUAT THAI Traditional Thai Massage.
The place is small, dark, cold and cozy. Soothing music and scented oils prevail the scene, and all you can (barely) see are people tucked in lazy boy seats, eyes closed, enjoying the bliss that foot massage brings. What I like about NUAT THAI aside from their authentic tea, are the well trained therapists. They start off by washing your legs and feet, then massaging gently with lotion, before doing their reflexology magic using a little bamboo or ceramic tool that they use for your pressure points. And can you believe my 30-minute authentic Thai foot massage only costs Php 100? (USD 2.00) I really got more than what I paid for! I went out refreshed and less tired, I was so happy that I think I'll go back for a full body massage tonight! =)
Here are some snaps I took outside the spa. I can't take photos inside since it would be rude to blind other relaxing customers with my camera flash.
Along Aguirre Ave., BF Homes, Parañaque City
It reminds me of the never ending massage parlor rows in Bangkok!
