Testimony of a first timer
It was my first time to have this kind of massage. Ventosa back massage therapy is done by creating a vacuum with heat in a glass or bamboo, sore points on the body are gently eased. This is said to prevent toxins from building up in the form of nodules or lamig and is replaced by a naturopathic organic mineral that enables the cell to regenerate and hydrate inside the body.
Dagdagay is a foot therapy method that uses sticks to massage the feet in rolling and scratching motions from the heel to toes to stimulate blood circulation before applying deep strokes or hagod. The combination of these types of massage was interestingly different from the other spa place we have visited to date.
It was a very relaxing spa date with the hubby that night.

Another Testimony about Shui Hilot
It was my first time there and also my first time to experience ventosa. I got there around 11:30pm and tried their 1hr 30min massage+ventosa package. I initially wanted the 2hr package but they close at 1am. The session started with a warm water foot bath at the lobby/reception area for probably 1-2 mins. Just to clean the feet before wearing the slippers and proceeding to the massage room. Then she started with the ventosa. There were 4 glasses placed on my back, not really sure how they looked like,and she moved it around my back and hips from time to time for probably 30 mins. All I could think about at that time was how good it would feel if done on the face. It would be like having a face lift. hahaha I was also imagining my fat being sucked out. Well,a girl can always dream haha. They say ventosa removes lamig. I honestly dont know if it does the trick coz the only thing I know about lamig is that it forms lumps that the manghihilot kneeds to oblivion to loosen cough and lessen back pain and pangangawit. But it felt good. The skin on my back felt tighter. After 30 mins,she started the hilot.It wasnt my first time to experience hilot since I grew up in the province and I have an aunt that practices it. The hilot at Shui wasnt like my aunts which always left me in tears coz of the pain. Haha. It was kinda like the Balinese massage I once had but with better execution. She started with my feet. It was the first time I didnt imagine kicking the masseuse in the face while doing the foot and leg massage. Harsh but true. My feet and legs are seriously sensitive when it comes to pain and pressure which is why I probably get sooo stressed when they do those parts. But this time I was able to enjoy it. Coz instead of poking my feet, they kneeded it and they started on my legs with really light and repeated strokes which increased gradually instead of immediately going hard(I always asked for light but it used to always feel hard and painful haha). "Shui" is .................... " its worth it ".

Testimony about Ventosa and Dagdagay
After a few minutes of waiting, therapists went inside our room and started with the session. At the beginning, they have placed glasses at our back aka ventusa therapy which was new experience to us. This is an alternative medicine therapy that relaxes your muscles and removes certain toxins from your body. I wanted to take a moment off first and take a snap shot of how it was done, but I was already enjoying the comfort of the spa. Maybe next time.
When they were massaging our feet, it seems they were using some piece of bamboo stick and poked us at different points in our feet. The hilot-spa session lasted for about an hour and a half.
After several months of physical and emotional ups and downs, It was nice to have this kind of quality time for relaxation.
