Massage in Manila & Angeles City
I very much enjoy massage and it doesn't have to be sexual. So I wanted
to try some massage while in the Philippines.
The hotel had a referral person they advertised who came to your room. She
was a young attractive woman who like most Asians, was very good. It's awkward
to do massage on a bed but she did a good job. She was totally non-sexual
which was fine with me since after my long flight I had lots of knots that
needed kneading. She was friendly but all business. The quoted price was P700
for 1 hour but I gave her P1000 ($US26). However when I checked out they had
also charged me P700 on the bill. I didn't realize it would be automatically
charged to my room. The hotel corrected the bill after confirming I had paid
When I returned to Manila after about a week in Angeles City I was a bit bar
girled out and wanted to explore some more just therapeutic massage.
Makati International Health Spa
I would have loved a deep muscle therapeutic massage from a pro. On a massage
table would be especially nice instead of a bed. But therapeutic massage doesn't
seem to be very common, just escort ads mostly using massage for sex in the
yellow pages ads.
In the yellow pages there was a big health club with various forms of massage
listed, but it said separate men's and ladies facilities. To me this implied
only same sex massage. I really want only women massaging me, even if totally
The most promising ad was for Makati International Health Spa in the Makati
International Inn building. The ad was from the most recent 1998-1999 Yellow
pages. I took a cab to the address given. But it was a vacant lot. The Makati
International Inn had been demolished! The inn is also shown on a Makati map
I got from the Vegas Hotel in Angeles city so it must have been destroyed
quite recently. I returned to my hotel and called the phone number in the
ad. It was disconnected. I should have called first!
Cab Driver Suggestions
I asked the cab driver about therapeutic massage. He recommended a blind man
for good massage but with no "hanky panky." I had also seen the blind folks
ad, but decided to pass since I really prefer women.
As usual the cab driver tried to get me on the topic of nice young women he
could bring me for sex. Of course I passed, preferring to find my own.
Angeles City Massage
The Vegas Hotel advertised their massage service. They had one woman that
came in on request to your room. She did quite a good massage with virtually
the same technique as the woman at the Corporate Hotel in Manila. Like in
Manila she was all business. Not quite as friendly and unlike in Manila she
wanted me to keep my shorts on. Even for non-sexual massage I'm use to being
nude, which is no big thing for me and part of Esalen massage, which I teach,
and host massage rooms at couples conventions. It was a good but very mechanical
massage. Cost as I recall was about P500 (US$13). I asked the hotel clerk
and she said I should just pay her directly, unlike at the Corporate Hotel
where it was included in my room bill.
I also did get some good back massage at some of the bars, which discuss more
in the bargirl sections.
There was also some massage shop just off of Fields Ave that wanted to dump
you in something hot. I think it was some sort of underwater massage, but
I wasn't brave enough to do.
