Ton Ton Thai Massage uses a pressure point-stimulating type of massage which does not use any lotion or oil. This is ideal for people on the go since you will feel revitalized without the slimy or sticky feel. A 60-minute massage only costs P250 from 1-6pm, and P300 on all other times. They are also open until 2am which is very convenient since most spas and massage places are closed by midnight.

 

So if you are not much of a Jacuzzi or Steam room type of a person, Ton Ton Thai Massage is the perfect place to achieve relaxation and revitalization at a very affordable price.

 

 

Big Apple Spa

 

If you are in Tiendesitas and you suddenly feel the urge to have a relaxing massage, all you have to do is visit the Big Apple Spa in SM Hypermart.  This express spa offers very cheap massages for your feet, back and whole body. A full body massage is priced at P290, and is done in a cubicle type private room which is not bad for a budget spa.

Each bed is designed with a hole for your face which is perfect for back massages. The only disadvantage is that if you are alone, you might end up in a room with a complete stranger which does not work well for other people.

 

Happy Family Spa is not a first class or high end spa but if you are looking for quality of service and affordability, especially if you are with your partner or loved one, this is definitely one of the places to consider. Massage rates start at P300.
