Sponsored Review : Thai Aroma Massage at Khana Spa Surabaya4:57:00 PM
Yes, here i am. Again. So-called hiatus forgotten, at least for now (not this month #Pink, not this month) coz i cannot afford the luxury -__-. Too many responsibilities that i need to take care of first, like this post.
As you might already know, i don't do a lot of spas but i've progressively warm up to the idea of strangers touching me (NOT LIKE THAT, your perv! LOLOLOL) because i do need that (massages, people) sometimes. And this visit to Khana Spa not too long ago couldn't come at a better time.
Plaza SBY (3rd Floor), Jl. Pemuda, Embong Kaliasin, Genteng, Kota SBY, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
(Opening Hours : 10 AM-9 PM)
I was super sick at that time, running high fever and crazy stuffed nose, my bones were all aching-i was sure a massage session at Khana Spa would make me feel better. Guess what, i was right-of course!
I went to Khana with my fellow influencers, Trixie and Kathy. We're all scheduled for an early afternoon session, alas-we're a bit late because... Err. Trixie (who picked me up) and i got lost. I know i know, how sad that is for two adult women who spent majority of their lives in Surabaya couldn't find their way to such a landmark of Surabaya (Plaza Surabaya being one of the oldest mall in Surabaya, and 3 minutes walk from my childhood home >.<). Anyway. We did get lost. But we found our ways (after a panic call to hunny).
|And immediately greeted by all the staffs|
FYI, Khana Spa is a Thai spa. So everything about this place is Thai-oriented (yes, the owner is also a true blue Thai nationality), from the technique, to all the products.
|Kathy channeling her inner Celebgram and posing for the camera|
|All Thai beauty products that can be purchased at Khana Spa. These are Malieco products, i personally am using Malieco's hair serum at the moment and it's quite good!|
|They also have manicure/pedicure service here|
|More Thai products for purchase|
|They have Collagen gel manicure and pedicure, not sure what those are tho hahaha|
|Trixie, who went all the way and pinned the decorative flower to her ear, channeling her inner Thai girl *LOL* (or Balinese, but we're in a Thai Spa right now so..)|
|We were then presented with the menu book and asked to choose the treatments that we wanted|
|We all opted for different type of massages (we took the 1.5 hours one since we have other appointments afterwards)|
|You can also get face accupressure or facial massage, i decided to pass since i was wearing full makeup and have an event to attend afterwards|
|Like i mentioned, I was dizzy from medication and the full blown flu so i didn't really pay attention to the menu (i just snapped them hahahaha), on hindsight i should've picked the Aroma Body Package instead because i love getting body scrubs!|
Since Khana Spa is located inside a shopping mall, the space is not super spacious, but it is not cramped and you can move around easily. Let me show you some of their treatment rooms :
|Everything is very simple but cozy|
|A couple room, which mainly used for the traditional massage|
|The treatment began with a foot bath to relax and revive your feet's condition (according to Khana Spa's rep :D)|
|Anyway, when you're having a spa session you're supposed to be relaxing anyway, not scrambling around taking pictures|
The Thai Aroma Massage that i opted was pretty straightforward, the therapist used an aromatic oil (i have to be honest here and tell you i can't really smell it because my nose was totally blocked, i had to use my nose drop a few times to be able to breathe!) to massage my legs, feet, and back. The temperature of the room's just right, which is essential because i was so sick (and i didn't feel cold at all-so i was very comfortable)!
The masseuse is very powerful alright, for someone who are not used to massages like me, i asked her to tone down her pressure >.< it was still very powerful tho! I can feel her kneading and righting all the twisted muscle and making sure they all loose and relaxed. Trixie, who's a fan of massages, actually praised her therapist's technique (something that i can't really comment on because i'm quite blind to techniques!) and power, so if you're a massage addict rest assured that you will get a nice session here in Khana Spa!
I was mostly feeling relaxed although i'm not gonna lie, some parts are quite painful (yes, i'm a wuss, and i'm very sensitive to touches!) that i was wincing in pain *LOL*, it's all worth it in the end because all of my sore, knotted muscles are all loose and relaxed afterwards! I felt so relaxed after taking a shower all i wanted to do is go to sleep and forget about the event (i didn't, of course).
I also recovered from my flu fast after the massage session, plus i got very good night sleep that night and the day after (we all know that the best medicine for flu is LOTS of rest! Which is not something that i get due to the fact that i'm the type of person that finds it hard to relax and not do anything >.<), who knows a simple massage can be so powerful!
I am still not a fan of massages, but whenever i'm feeling tired or not very well, i would not say no to a massage session at Khana Spa haha!
