Zenyu Eco Spa at Hotel H2O at the Manila Ocean Park: Get acquainted with Negative Ion Hot Bed and Fish Spa Jacuzzi
April 2012 Manila. These days sparty [spa party cum product review] has become part of our blogger regimen. Zenyu Eco Spa is a first of its kind service here in the Philippines. Blogging has its perks every once in a while, when ladies hear a newly opened “sparty” in Manila area, we’re on the look on what’s hot and must try’s. This site your reading is a mere fashion and beauty diagnostics, we have tips and grinds for consumer products and services. We crave for honest feedbacks and share information for those looking for a specific services with emphasis on health and fair consumer products.
Why SPAntastic at Zenyu Eco Spa?
So far, we had the thrill we’ve been waiting for. Fantastic isn’t ordinary, it’s not always there that we commonly get to have, maybe it has something to do with the quality of service we experienced, Home spa is a regular thing for us in the family, we call out home service massage and relax at your own abode. Or sometimes spa in nearby malls is okay provided that the “first impression last” notion wouldn’t knock on our heads. We’re very particular with the masseuse because of near-harassing attitude. That’s why we get goosebumps with the term “massage”. The are spa centres that are literally off the hook.
When a friend invited us to spend spartying at Zenyu Eco Spa – Hotel H2O, with the enticing new terms like negative ion hot bed, fish spa jacuzzi and shiatsu massage. We relished the idea for quiet sometime.
An hour of shiatsu massage with muscle relaxation and stretching is just as good from high-end spa salons. Zenyu Eco Spa uses virgin coconut oil from head to toe massage.
“Specialty massages that can be considered as the most affordable amongst the top hotels. Massages such as preganancy massage, deep tissue, hawaiin lomi, swedish, shiatsu and combination stretching and classic massage can all be had for just PhP700 [approx. $16.5].”
“The spa offers the first fish spa jacuzzi in Asia. This whole body fish spa is usually found in Europe. For the first time in Asia one can dip in a pool of fish to clean off the dead skin all over the body.” We must admit the full body fish spa experience is something we need to overcome again and again. Fish spa jacuzzi is PhP300 [approx. $7].
The encounter in hotbed is one that we enjoyed the most, it’s a modern sauna thing for us. We normally saw the wooden rectangles and floor beds in Korean romcoms. “In the hotbed despite sweating like a pig one will feel as if coming out from a shower. No sticky feeling, no smell at all.” We were advised not to take a bath afterwards to observe foul smells after extreme sweating. Me being a stubborn, I did with the use of Pirikare multi-purpose soap [powder was mixed with water], I was told by my friend that the milky-like liquid soap do not make bubbles and I can use it as shampoo, body wash and mouthwash. So I gargled all the way to feel the taste and texture of Pirikare. It didn’t have neither taste nor smell, very close like those I used from baby products except that it has fragrance and other unknown synthetics. “The negative ion hot bed is part of the Ecoparadise Deoxidation center that started in Japan and has branched out to Malaysia and Singapore. A 30 minute hotbed treatment is just PhP400 [approx. $9.5].”
the heat is 45 degree celsius
Quoted from Zenyu Eco Spa:
“Zenyu eco spa means complete healing in Japanese. Zenyu eco spa does not only offer pampering and relaxation services but also a healing component due to the negative ion hot bed treatment.
Ecoparadise Japan recognized the power of nature with its studies on negative ions. A clean and fresh environment means there is balance with the electrical charges of the soil and the environment. A balanced environment is rid of bacteria and viruses. They formulated a deoxidizing solution theat they include in materials such as plastics, paints, wax, bricks, tiles and other building materials, these materials mimic the bounty of nature and produce negative ions. As cities are developed, a concrete jungle displaces the symbiotic relationship of soil and air thus more positive ions and free radicals proliferate. Positive ions can mutate and wreak havoc in our immune system allowing bacteria and viruses to affect us. Free radicals on the other hand are the major causes of degenerative disease such as hypertension, diabetes and cancer.
This deoxidiaing solution promotes the production of negative ions from the materials they infuse it with. negative ions are free air molecules that help stabilize the effects of free radicals and positive ions.“
Really SPAntastic encounter, when I got home everyone notices I look fairer and glowing without mentioning it to them (them!), I promised the whole clan I’ll bring them here for the hot bed treatment and massage. The gang were so curious with the service and negative ions.
