I never thought that I would NEED massages. Ever since I started working full time and constantly being in front of the computer, my body started to strain me out, especially my back muscles. I thought that it was a pretty good deal for RM58 which is originally RM373. This Groupon deal is inclusive of a 1-hour Balinese massage with essential oil, a 30-minute papaya yogurt body mask and 30-minute sauna session.
I brought my momma together with me for a Friday treat and this little rustic gem is in the heart of Sri Petaling, at one of the new shop houses that were just built a little less over a year and a half ago.

We were first greeted at the receptionist to fill in some personal particulars about ourselves; details such as allergies and bodily problems like water retention, blood circulation problems, weight problems, were recorded down.
After that, we were ushered into the brick room next to the receptionist table to have our feet soaked. We were served (rather tasteless) lemongrass tea and had 10-minute foot soak. I liked the fact that the interior of the place are full of red bricks and cement flooring.
Time never flew so fast! The service was great but the massage though, the massage was painful! Pipi, our Indonesian masseur, told me that I have a lot of ‘wind’ in my body that I haven’t got rid of and she could tell that I haven’t gone for a massage in a long time. Since it’s a full body massage, she told me that I had gastric, digestion problems and plenty of back and shoulder ‘wind’. My body was really stiff and she said it was because of ‘wind’. This wind could only be eliminated from the body through body massages that hit the right pressure points.
Although it was an overall rather painful experience, I would definitely come back for more treatments and body massages by Pipi. She really knows which pressure points to massage and I felt really light after that, especially after sweating out in the sauna.
The hospitality was good and they’re meticulous with their products and services. I would definitely come back to try their other packages and mani pedis!
