Massage and treatments are very old. The use of milk baths date back to the time of Cleopatra and possibly even further back. The word massage probably originated from the Arabic word “masah” (stroking by hand) indicating its ties to the Middle East. As far back as the 4th century, the Greeks were already recommending massages to relax
As time passed by, the practice would spread all over America, Europe and Asia. Today they are highly regarded as an effective method for regenerating the body. As the ancients had said, the various methods used help rejuvenate the body and the spirit. Spa is just as old as massage. There is even an old Roman town named Spa.
It depends on the treatment you get. Some masseurs will charge only 300 pesos hourly. Caesar’s on the other hand, charges 50 USD for a 90 minute treatment. For a world class spa like Mandala Spa, expect to shell out 175 USD for their top of the line four-hour prince/princess treatment.
Aside from the “professional” services, some women will walk up to you on the beach and offer to massage you right there and then. These services are cheaper and the price is negotiable.
After spending the whole day surfing, trekking and doing all sorts of activities, a Boracay spa and massage treatment will be the perfect way to cap it all off. With so many services to choose from, the only difficulty is deciding which one to go to.
