Good Vibes at Vibes Massage

I admit that I am a sucker for getting massages because I live a very stressful life and this is one way of relaxing. Since most massages now ranges between P300 to P500 (it does not include the more expensive ones offered in spa centers). I always grab vouchers that offers up to 50% off on massages. I was lucky to get a voucher at ensogo (even if I hate this company because of the bad customer service) I was tempted to get one because I only paid P150 for a one-hour massage at Vibes Massage that is originally worth P300. It definitely is a good deal because they are offered in many branches and one is really close to my place. I bought 3 vouchers (2 for me and 1 for my mom...she definitely needs that too). I checked out the branch at the 3rd floor of Circle C Mall, Congressional Avenue. It looks like a clinic from the outside...

The awards posted on the wall got me expecting a real good massage from the blind masseuse. They have the reputation of giving good massages because my dad used to have a regular masseuse who is partly blind and he was really great and I have also tried half massages in Cubao and Cherry. 

The receptionist did not ask for any I.D. which was cool because my mom won't have a hard time claiming a massage if ever she wanted to get hers already. The place is not really pleasing to the eyes because you can see a row of people getting a massage outside...it reminded me of the ward area or emergency room of the hospital. I was glad that I get my own room because I won't feel comfortable being massaged outside. 



Pardon me for the pictures that were taken inside the massage room because it was a bit dark there. It looked like a small apartment room that was divided into several mini rooms because there are spaces on top. I was glad that there was a hook that locks the room because the spa I went to before only has a curtain-like cover and there were employees peeking in and talking to my masseuse (hated that experience!). I snapped a pic of the blind masseuse and and I asked her what kind of massage she was doing and she said it was a combination of different massages...i never bothered asking her more because it seems like she does not know the difference of shiatsu, swedish and traditional and I totally understand her. Her strokes were mild and relaxing plus she knows what part to work on because she spent a lot of time on my back to loosen up the muscles and nerves. The bed doesn't have a bad smell unlike the one at Blue Elements (the pillow smells bad...LOL). Overall experience was fine, but the place lacks the ambiance. The music played was from an AM channel and newspapers were scattered all over the two chairs at the reception. I hope they add more chairs for those who are waiting to get a massage and fix up the place. Kudos though to the owner of the massage center for giving job opportunities to blind people...the masseuse even told me that they can also buy stocks in the company. Here is their website for those who want to help these people and also get a good massage.
