Perks of a Bella - My Simple yet Relaxing Birthday Celebration

Who wants a do-it-yourself type of massage?!

Me and Mr. MITM do! and I know lots of people out there doesn't want to be touched by anybody for a massage to have their tensed muscles relaxed as well.

Last June 17, I celebrated my birthday at our "happiest place on earth" at Ace Water Spa , with my family. It's been 5 years since we started to love Ace Water Spa. With or without occassion, whenever we feel like we need a break, bond and chill out, this is one of the first place that will come to our mind. We used to go to their branch in Banawe, Quezon City. But we love their branch in Pasig the more.

Ace Water Spa is the best place to bond with your family, friends and colleagues. I also like how the spa is PWD ( person with disability) friendly. Aside from the fact that they do give discounts for PWD, (provided you have a valid ID) I love how they give considerations to PWDs.

What you need to bring when availing a spa service?

All you need to bring are fitted swimwear and a towel. Ace Water Spa has all the amenities you need for a complete and relaxing experience. They provide swimming caps and life vest for kiddos. But if you want to bring your own, you are free to do so. A locker will also be provided where you can safe keep your belongings.

What I personally love about AWS, aside from their Hydrotherapy Massage is their Hot Herbal Pool. Whenever I'm out of sight, my family would know where to find me. They have four (4) hot herbal pool with different temperatures ranges from 34° to 40°c. I love to dip in their Lavander pool, the hottest pool with 40°c as its temperature. Thank God for my high tolerance for extreme heat. I love lavander scent, it refreshes my body at the same time keeps my skin smooth and soft. And after that I would take a fast dip into their cold pool (as if I accepted the ALS Ice Bucket challenge). But I need to do this. This process is called Contrast Therapy Plunge. It is a special hydro-therapy experience wherein an alternate plunging in the hot herbal pool and cold pool is involved. Immersion on hot herbal pool will open your pores to allow the release of body toxins while stimulating blood flow to the core of the body while tightening the pores. Alternate immersion is recommended to keep your body temperature and heart rate at a healthy level.

Since picture taking is not allowed in the spa area, I grabbed some of AWS's photo from their website.

We love Ace Water Spa

No matter how much pressure you feel at work, if you could find ways to relax for atleast 5 minutes in every hour, you'd be more productive -- Dr. Joyce Brothers

How much more if you spend 4 hours to relax? You'll be more productive. So, head on to Ace Water Spa and de-stress. Take it easy. You won't regret every minute and every penny spent.

Thank you Lord for another wonderful year! 'Twas a Happy and Relaxed Birthday indeed.

Happy birthday to me! ;)
