Let's talk about the Spa facilities first.Aum Spa is like a resort within a resort.An obvious advantage to the sprawling resort setting of Crimson Maktan.It is consistent with the general Asian-inspired architecture and ambiance of the resort.
AUM SPA has one of the best designed sauna,/shower/locker room facility I have seen thus far.It's clean,spacious and intimately lit. The use of the Sauna Facility is part of any spa package.
In our case,we came an hour before closing time so we had to decide whether to use the Sauna before the massage or go straight to the therapy.Deep tissue massage lasts for 1.5 hours.Should we have opted for the Sauna first,the time we spend for it will have to be deducted to our massage time so we decided to skip it instead.Good thing we already showered in our room before going here.
Imagine being here at night.Bliss!
I was surprised at how my male masseur started the massage treatment.He tounched my back gently and I felt some sort of electricity flowing trough his fingers.I asked afterwards what he did.If he used any mechanical device to come up with such effect.He said he directed his energy towards my body."Energy",that's what he called it.I was amazed.I never experienced this before and thinking about it afterwards,I know it requires a certain level of training and experience.
This is when the masseur establishes a connection with the body of his/her client,a connection that is important in understanding what the client's body needs.
I am so used to hard massage and all the bone cracking which goes with it.I love it when I get hurt with bold strokes.The standard of a good massage for me is one where I get hurt.hahaha.That's when I know that my nodules are targeted.To achieve that,the masseur has to go hard and deep especially at my upper back.
