New Hilot Inspired Experience at Devarana Spa, ManilaJuly 2016
Dusit Thani Manila’s Devarana Spa invites all spa enthusiasts to experience the magic of Eastern blend therapies with the newly launched Borehilot Massage, available from July 2016 onwards. Borehilot Massage is the fusion of Filipino Hilot Massage and Balinese Boreh Remedy. In traditional Eastern remedies, illness is believed to be caused by unbalanced energies within the body. When the energy pathways are blocked, sickness begins to take form in the body causing harm to one’s health. The core principle of Eastern therapy is to unblock and stimulate the energy meridians, aiming to maintain health and wellness - mentally, physically and emotionally. Created to restore both your body and mind, back into a natural balance within 90 minutes, the Borehilot Massage starts with the application of a warm Boreh paste which is a unique combination of ginger root, cinnamon, clove and rice powder. The therapist then applies this warm paste on the specific area such as the upper and lower back, legs and stomach to help warm up the muscles and improve flexibility. The heat and aromatic properties of the Boreh ease the strain and promote circulation. What’s more, warm banana leaves, soaked in warm therapeutic oil, are arranged to cover the top of the paste to let the heat penetrate deeper in that specific area. This ritual will be left there for a while to reduce the tension and relieve the pain in one’s back and legs. The massage therapy is completed with a long soothing massage stroke with medium pressure to stimulate circulation. The benefits of this new massage include relieving fatigue, providing energy and promoting luminous complexion. The 90 minute Borehilot Massage is priced only at PHP 4,000.00 nett per person.
