|Couple's Treatment Room|
The Bhuvana Signature Massage enticed us both. This 60 minute massage combines a number of specialized techniques designed exclusively for Bhuvana. ‘A blend of Thai massage, foot reflexology and long-stroke massage movements, knead through the energy line with herbal oils.’ It’s advertised as being great for sore muscles and jet lag and inviting a feeling of complete inner calm. While not being jet lagged, we were straggling due to a number of late nights and too much of a good time. Hubby had sore muscles from his morning workout and I can always do with some inner calm, so this selection seemed just right.
Hydrated with ginger tea and cooled with a moist towel we were ushered to a couple’s room. Equipped with pebble-tiled bath, private toilet and shower, locker, twin massage beds and adjustable lighting, the room extended sufficient space while maintaining a feeling of coziness.
|Single Treatment Room|
Changed into our disposable undies and prone on our tables, the treatment began with our feet being bathed with a warm moist towel and pressure placed along the arc and heel of the foot. A low pillow placed under the feet relieved pressure from the lower back. The massage proceeded with a well-refined system of pressure, long strokes and kneading. My masseuse’s firm hands did wonders for my muscles and especially my consistently tight shoulders and neck.
Generally, I’m not fond of stomach massage. I’ve always had a sensitive tum, not liking waist squeezing pants or belts I often turn down the final part of most massages. For an unknown reason this time though I went through to completion. This stomach massage was not my usual uncomfortable experience. It seemed to aid in digestion and relieve some of my bloating. Long strong S strokes around my curves and firm pressure pushing my navel towards my spine had a therapeutic effect.
Slowly brought out of our dreamy state, the therapists left us alone in the room to shower and redress. Another round of ginger tea awaited our exit and gave hubby and I time to exchange notes. Concurring that this experience was up there with our top massages, we were tempted to make another appointment straight away.
