Everytime I spontaneously want a foot massage, I can't seem to get a slot. Reservations are usually necessary to book an appointment as almost all foot massage salons are fully-booked early on. This isn't surprising as our feet carry our weight from one place to another. No wonder our sore soles need quality pampering!

The new concept Foot Massage Lounge, which is located in the Bonifacio Global City offer services that give your feet their much needed treat.

The experience starts with the relaxing modern ambience that offers a quiet escape from the city stress, with plush customized massage couches in rooms that are quiet, private, and comfortable.

The black-and-white décor is a conscious effort to steer away from the usual look and feel of Zen massage lounges.

Founded by entrepreneur Cat Ilacad who also owns Posh Nails, she herself is a foot massage addict. She explains, "Foot Massage Lounge offers a different experience for clients looking for quality me-time. The usual set-up in other massage lounges are crowded chairs in common rooms where one has to contend with noise and chatter. My concept is that of a boutique hotel lounge, where one can relax and luxuriate in a quiet setting.”

More than just treating your feet with the Deluxe Foot Massage (P600) which focuses on foot reflexology, the therapists also work their magic on back and neck pains with the FML Signature Massage, which I was able to try. It was a 75-minute of bliss, especially that I had the massage during the holiday rush! It combines shiatsu and reflexology treatment that works out the knots and aches brought about by overwork and stress. Not only did it soothe my sore feet that day, it also alleviated most of my other body aches and pains. My favorite part was the massage on the head, neck and back. It definitely reduced some muscle tension and the chronic pain I was carrying on my shoulders. For more beauty and wholistic health benefits of massages, read more here.

What I like the most about Foot Massage Lounge is that you can just relax without worrying how to go about your next task. Most spas use oil and that poses as a problem as to how to clean yourself up after your massage session. Here, you can wear their disposable shorts, have your massage and then go out after for a date or a meeting without looking like you just jumped out of the bed. There is no greasy or sticky feeling in your skin that forces you to go home and shower. 

Foot Massage Lounge is located at 2/F Forum South Global Bldg. Bonifacio Global City, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. For more information, visit www.footmassagelouge.com or call 0926-7334929/02-2186744.
