Rave: Banahaw Heals Spa in Angeles

The famous Banahaw Heals Spa that has over 100 franchised branches nationwide is finally in Pampanga! Find out how my experience, together with PFB's Khai, went and why #BHSAngeles is the newest rave in town.

Originally from Calabarzon, it was the founder's passion and devotion to his career that brought him awareness of a mystical mission, a manifestation of Mt. Banahaw’s healing nature, through massage and touch therapy.

What makes BHS different from most are their signature massages including Swedish and Thai Massages, Tuina, Turtle Walk Massage, Ventusa, and Netibo Healing. Of these services, the latter four are distinctly improved and developed by the founder to cater Banahaw Heals Spa’s distinct identity. Here is an in-depth story of BHS' origins.
I'll be honest here and tell you right off the bat that I don't do massages very often. So when BHS Angeles invited #PFB to try out their 5-in-1 massage, Khai and I jumped to the idea of a sparty... of two. Arriving at Casa Mitzi Building, we first went to the lounge area and there we met the bright and bubbly Ms. Kim who entertained all of our questions about their promos and massages.
Next, we were lead into the spa area. This was a no frills and no shindigs just a purely native aesthetic when it came to their interior and believe me, it was just right for the ambiance they were going for. We were first treated with a nice foot massage before having to get ready and be on the massage table for an hour and a half. Now mind you, I was wary of having a massage done because the previous massages I've had always left me with body pain which lasted for 3 days. Now in BHS' case and this isn't me trying to make a sales pitch, it was the complete opposite. I was delighted with their 5-in-1 massage that had a fusion of Shiatsu, Thai, and Swedish massages all of which never left my body sore. I was well taken cared of by my masseuse, ate Kate.
After having the relaxing and drool-worthy massage, we were led back to the lounge last minute Q&A for Ms. Kim. The icing on the cake would be their original home-blend tea. It was perfect.
My whole spa experience was not the best part though, their promos are so affordable you can probably have a massage twice a week if you had the time. Plus, you can avail of their Personalized Lifetime Membership (PLM) which only costs Php250 and you can have a full body massage for as low as Php100! Here's an added catch, if you add an extra Php250 on top of your PLM you can upgrade yourself to the Day-Off Acces membership (valid for 6 months) wherein you can get any of their packages for as low as Php200 from an original rate of Php800 or Php300 which is originally Php1200.  The best thing about Day-Off Access is you can renew it after the 6th month! Score, right? :)

Now don't fret if your family wants in on the action because for only Php500 you can avail of their Family lifetime membership, too. This membership allows up to 5 people in your family!
It was a well-deserved and well-pampered day for Khai and I, that's for sure. Thank you BHS Angeles for having us. I'll surely be back to try out the other massages and get my own lifetime membership! :)
