Review: Hagod Spa and Nail Care

I believe that every one of us need to just sit back, relax and a good massage even just for one day. Okay, I think I’m dreaming too much, but you know what I have a confession with you, I am a huge fan of massages and I’m so addicted to Swedish Massage. In fact, one of our favorite place is Wesha Spa located in Pasay (near World Trade Center), I can’t remember the last time I had my whole body massage since I got pregnant with Rhian.

And so I’m super lucky to have a mommy blogger friend who invited me to try Hagod Nail and Spa located at C. Palanca St. which is so near at our office. As in mga 3 tumbling lang andun ka na. J Thanks Mommy Ethel!  Anyway, I was scheduled to try their service last Friday, November 21 and you know what I’m so excited to experience again the whole body massage. Finally, matatangal na lahat ng lamig ko sa katawan after 48 years! Woohooo…

Hagod literally translates to “Massage” but for us Filipino this word has so much meaning. Diba tayong mga mommies, usually sinasabi natin sa mga babies natin lalo na pag naubo or may sakit, “Hagurin mo yung likod” meaning you want your son/daughter to relax and give comfort. This is the first time I heard about this place and after hearing the story behind this spa makes me realized that I really want to go back here and be their loyal costumer.

The spa is at the basement of The Colonnade Residences. The guards directed me to the walk downstairs where the luxury spa was located.  When I got there, I noticed a glass door and what seemed like a cozy living room which you can sense quietness. I already felt relaxed because of the scents. The interiors are very homey and calm, I love the wooden furniture all over the place.  A friendly female receptionist asked me for my massage preferences, but I told her that I was looking for Ms. Leann Kwan which is our contact person.

Ms. Leann introduces herself and she told the masseur (Ate Marjorie) to give me a Swedish massage. I was ushered to the massage area and instructed me to put my things inside the box and wear only the shorts they provided.

Before we begin the massage, Ate Marjorie asked me where I want to focus on more, so I told her that I want to focus on my back, super dami ko na kasi talagang lamig sa likod and laging masakit likod ko. Ate Marjorie started my Swedish massage with soothing stroke, honestly I fell asleep halfway, lalo na nung hinahangod na yung mga lamig ko sa likod. Sarap ng feeling!  I had a full body massage for one hour plus I asked to Ate Marjorie to give me 5 more minutes to rest and fix my things.

The massage was HEAVENLY! I highly recommend Swedish Massage. Two Thumbs Up! I feel rejuvenating again! Thank you Hagod for the most relaxing experience even just for one hour.

Right after my massage, I was able to talked with Kuya Rey (employee of The Colonade Residence) and talks about the story behind Hagod Spa, it was formerly known as “ The Village Spa” for almost 15 years but the company was in trouble when the owner decided to close their business, fortunately and Thank God the caretaker which is a kind-hearted man of the Spa decided to bought it and continue the business for the sake of their employees and eventually, they change the name from “The Village Spa” to “Hagod Spa and Nail Care”.

By the way, they also offer special services like foot spa, facial care, manicure, pedicure at a very low price.  So if you’re working at Makati, try and visit the spa. Believe me, you will experience one of the most relaxing massage ever.
