Visiting Spa Botanica at The Sentosa Spa & Resort is always a treat. Because the ambience the spa was able to provide immediately sets you in a holiday mood. No matter how stressed I may feel, just spending a few hours at Spa Botanica helps me forget my worries for a while.
The spa also has many great facilities (like the float pool, mud pool and tea pavilion) that I can spend HOURS just relaxing within the spa.
This time, I visited the spa for a review of their newest massage – the Botanica Bamboo Massage. No thanks to walking in heels and sitting before the computer working for many hours straight (even on weekends), I pretty much feel achy everywhere – particularly on my upper back and calves. My boyfriend has been doing his best to give me his rendition of massages (which aren’t actually too bad!) but nothing beats getting treated by a professional.
The Botanica Bamboo Massage does exactly what I need – it’s designed for improving blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and relieve muscle tension. What’s special about this treatment is that instead of the therapist’s hands only, the therapist also uses warm bamboo sticks to help slide, tap, pivot different muscles.
The treatment left my muscles all loosened and relaxed. The bamboo canes felt especially comforting on the calves (YAY!) and the shoulders.
