The night was young when I together with some of my blogger friends were discussing how work and most activities do exhaust us. And with this, we thought of pampering ourselves and relax for a bit. So when I, Aldrin, Ella and Bethel we’re talking about it, getting a massage made it up to our list of options. With Cebu surely having many massage spas over the metro, finding a good one should be easy. But for this time around, we decided to try a not so normal type of massage that you wouldn’t normally get anywhere — Acupressure Massage.

What is Acupressure Massage?

For most of us, acupressure massage would be likely associated with acupuncture massage which works with the use of very thin needles. Even when we first heard about getting an acupressure massage, we thought that our bodies will be pinpointed with needles. 😂 But that doesn’t work the same as acupressure.

Acupressure massage is an ancient remedy of Chinese traditional medicine known to relieve pain in specific areas of the body. It is often called acupuncture without the needles. Instead of needles, acupressure involves the application of manual pressure (usually with the fingertips) to specific points on the body. Acupressure is often the choice for people who prefer a natural form of pain relief instead of using medication. The goal of acupressure massage is to bring relief from pain without the use of medications.

So of course, we didn’t go ahead and get ourselves an acupressure massage for nothing. Days upon getting our acupressure massage scheduled with this very good spa, we summarized our research first. Research as to what is it for us to get this type of massage and not just the normal ones.

Benefits of Acupressure Massage

  • Alleviate – eliminate: tension, pain, inflammation in shoulder, neck, back, knees, joints

Note: If you’re going under some medications or does have any complications like heart disease, do consult your doctor first before getting an acupressure massage.

Now, where did we had our acupressure massage? Upon searching for a good place to get one, many from our friends recommended this Wellness Center nearby. Have you heard about Riso Wellness Center?

We were lucky to see the amenities and got to relax first in the lobby before going inside the massage room.
