A friend invited me to Takshing Health Care and Beauty Center some two weeks ago. I had no idea what I was in for, I was just told it’s Electrotherapy Massage.
Takshing Healthcare and Beauty Center is located along Annapolis St. in Greenhills. From this view, the place looks like some sort of chapel, lol.
It has nothing to do with religion believe me. This establishment is actually a franchise from Hong Kong.
The place is actually spa-like inside. Before the massage, I was asked to take off my footwear (in my case Fitflops) and change into slippers.
Then my feet were soaked in warm water. This ensures that the soles are clean for the application of the Node.
After the soak, I was led into a room with a spa bed.
There was a robe-like top with matching shorts for me to change into and a towel. After changing I was told to lie down.
The Node was attached to my foot which was wrapped with a bandage-like cloth. There was some massage cream applied to my foot too. The therapist places her foot on the grounding mat which enables her to act as the conductor, producing a tingling sensation with her touch.
So anyway, after the foot-wrapping, the therapist started to massage my legs. I could feel the current travelling from my foot to my legs — even her hands seemed charged as I could feel the current wherever her hand touched me. It was surprisingly soothing and relaxing, I actually found it to be a pleasant experience — and I normally don’t like getting massaged. A full-body Electrotherapy Massage session can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. It costs P1k per hour. It’s recommended that you don’t bathe or shower for at least 6 hours after the treatment. You’re also encouraged to drink lots of water to flush out toxins.
So why go for Electrotherapy Massage? Benefits include:
- Improves overall circulation
- Relieves muscle pains
- Increases energy levels
- Releases toxins
- Helps tone and firm the body
- Continuous treatment can help alleviate certain conditions like insomnia, arthritis, and body aches among others.
Takshing Healthcare and Beauty Center offers three kinds of treatments:
- Signature Electrotherapy Massage (Full Body – 60 mins for P1k, 90 mins for P1.5k, or 120 mins for P2k)
- Signature Facial with Neck, Shoulders, and Arms Massage for 60 mins
- Foot Reflexology for 60 mins
Since I only had one Signature Electrotherapy Massage session, I can’t tell you about the long term effects. What I can say is I felt really good afterwards — revitalized, relaxed, and invigorated.
