Nurture Wellness Village Spa

Long days seated in front of my computer since work from home began always result to muscle pains on my neck and shoulder. Last year I had a scare as I was waking up in the wee hours of the morning with a bad headache, that I consulted a neurologist and had some tests done. I found that it’s muscle strain and mostly because of my posture and lifestyle.

To remind myself to get up and stretch and do a bit of exercise every once in a while D bought me a small stair climber, and I remind myself to get up and play ball with my dog every top of the hour. On weekends, I’ve been frequenting the spa for a shoulder massage. So far, the best that I’ve gone to lately is the Nurture Wellness Village Spa in Tagaytay. I’ve heard about this place from a former colleague almost two decades ago when she always raved about it. So I didn’t hesitate when I found a promo offerred by Klook, and immediately booked myself a Hilot Kagalingan package, a 60-minute Filipino traditional massage that uses hot banana leaves. I was lucky when it came with a free 30 minute foot massage. Best deal ever!

We were welcomed by the staff and D and I headed to our own little huts. I booked him a 60-minute foot massage called Dagaday. His little hut was open air, and looked very relaxing as it was in the midst of trees. My room was cozy and spacious and the temperature and the lighting was just right. I asked my masseuse to focus on my shoulders, and I savored the hour as she skillfully kneaded through my knots.

Though it’s a bit of a drive from home, I’m glad we got the chance to do some pampering at Nurture Wellness. I hope we can do it again soon!

  1. That sounds so wonderful! I am suffering with soft tissue damage to my shoulder, my physical therapist thinks it’s torn ligaments and/or tendons.

    This really sounds divine. I hope it did the trick for you.

    1. I’m sorry to hear about your shoulder Carol, I hope you get better. Massage helps loosen my knots and I feel relaxed afterwards. After a couple of days they’re back, and I think it’s because of my posture.

  2. Looks really relaxing. I can totally relate to the muscle strain! This work from home setup is good, but sometimes I wish I could go to the office every once in a while. Anyway, I’m still thankful that I have work. I think we only need to do some pampering from time to time just like you did.
