My body is beaten and stressed after 2 days of going under the sun and under the sea. Our beach trip in Nasugbu, Batangas left me some sunburns, and fun times with my family, oh I forgot, it also left me that painful sprain on my leg and also body sores after snorkeling all day.
I'm glad that I got introduced to try the Ahavia Signature Massage, its a 2 hour massage here at Ahavia Lounge Spa in Q.C. Its a new branch of the Ahavia Lounge Spa, a franchise kind, but it differs itself from the mother branch and other franchise branch, because this newly opened spa at Maria Clara st. Q.C. shows modern style interiors and facility, luxurious setting and homey atmosphere. If you are a fan of everything Instagramish, then I suggest you check them out.
Good to hear that their therapist are certified with the NC2 by TESDA, customers wont be worried because their body will be in good hands with certified therapist who undergo training and with certification.

Also I want to try their service and how good it is.
My review and recommendation are posted below this blog post.
Here are the rates.
For me, the price range of massage services are OK.
Not too pricey and with a reasonable price. Where will you get a 2 hour massage for a PHP 698. In other spa centers, that's almost around 3k for a total of 2hour massage plus use of their facility.

Here's what I look like before I get the 2 hour Ahavia Signature Massage. I am so ready and excited to try it.
I also learned that the Ahavia Signature Massage therapist are male. I was expecting to have a female therapist, but they told me that male therapist are the most recommended therapist for their Ahavia Signature Massage. They have customers who are athletes who prefer male therapist for their spa massage, because male therapist pressure is hard and its good to treat stressed muscles and body pain.
I dont have a photo inside the common male room, because its too dark inside and I dont have someone to take a photo for me. So I used one of my stock images and posted here for some reference.
I plan to visit Ahavia this month, I will change this photo after my 2nd visit.
After a relaxing 2 hour massage, they offered me a black tea to help me hydrate myself after the 2 hours rub, bend, stretch and strokes. Ahhh perfect! Take note, ask them first if you want no sugar, no honey in your tea. Because they gave me a sweet kind of tea and I was not ready for it hahaha. nagulat ako, but its a good tea!
Before trying the 2 hour spa, the male therapist did the 1st ritual by washing my foot with warm water and scented liquid soap. Then he escorted me to the male common room with curtain dividers. He explained to me first the style of their Ahavia Signature massage, it combines a lot of long strokes, pressure, and some stretching. I took off my clothes and place it in a small locker under the massage table, then I signal the male therapist that I'm ready.
The 2 hour massage is no joke! and the male therapist who are certified to do it did a great job in removing all stress in my body and muscles. I was worried that my ticklish thigh might embarrass me, but I'm surprised that the male therapist didn't even tickle me LOL. I guess female therapist are ticklish to me because of their soft hands, but for the male therapist their hands got some hard pressure and hands are bigger to cover and reach the muscle area of my limbs.
It was a 1 hour massage lying down and then 1 hour massage while on bed rest. I expect that I might fell asleep during the massage session, but its hard to get a snooze because the Ahavia signature massage has a lot of arm, legs and body stretching.
After the 2 hour massage, I felt okay and energized. My one day recovery from our beach outing is complete. Muscle stress and pain are gone after the session, but when I went home, I felt some soreness in my body, I waited for 2 days to let my body heal at home, its normal to have that reaction because body stress and cold muscles were removed by a gentle force. Thanks to Ahavia Lounge Spa for rejuvenating me, I super recommend that you try their Ahavia signature massage.
