Head-to-Toe Pampering Session at Pink Passion Salon

Nowadays, we tend to let hectic lifestyles take over us that leads to overloaded stress both physically and mentally. It is important  for us to take some time once in a while to recharge and unwind. Nothing is more indulgent, relaxing, and restoring than a head-to-toe pampering session. I bet you guys have heard plenty about Pink Passion's Eyelash Extension service but they do other services ranging from facial to body as well. Thanks to Pink Passion for inviting me over to their saloon again to try out two of new treatments which is the Intensive Face Lymphatic Treatment and the Chinese Deep Tissue Massage respectively. The invitation came just on the right time since I have been wanting to get a full body massage. 

So I made an appointment with them earlier last month on one of the weekdays. I was quite early that day so the beautician brought me right away to change in the treatment room. The first thing I noticed in the room was the fairy lights!

Dim-lighted room and soothing music is definitely the perfect combo for a relaxing facial session.
So, the beautician started off with the normal facial routine that includes cleansing, toning, moisturizing, mask, extractions as well as shoulder and head massage. The massage was really good! She added ampoule for me too for better moisturizing function and enhance skin absorption.
Intensive Face Lympathic Treatment is a fusion of an Eastern traditional practice and Western lymphatic detoxification to promote blood circulation and help with lymphatic drainage to remove toxins from the entire face as it targets on facial acupunture and meridian points. This treatment has been adapted by Pink Passion and given a modern twist with Ginseng and Eucalyptus to fight stress-caused conditions and to stimulate and bring a new radiance to the skin and leaves the face with revitalized and glowing skin. It also helps to reduce wrinkles and improve elasticity of skin. This treatment is suitable for those who afflicted with dull, dry skin and/or eye bags and dark eye circles due to poor blood circulation. In other word, it is also called Facial Guasa Treatment that uses the horns of water buffaloes. 

The first thought that came to my mind was will it cause any bruising to my face like how Guasa usually does to the body. My beautician reassured me that it will not cause any redness AT ALL and it will be a PAIN-FREE treatment. She first applied some lavender essential oil on my face and did some focal pressing and light scraping. 

It was indeed painless, in fact the whole treatment was very comfortable and calming. 
The aftermath; no redness or bruising after the guasa treatment. 

Lastly, I had another 15 mins of double mask treatment at the end of the treatment. The whole facial session took around 2 hours and I would totally recommend this!  

After my facial session, I was brought to the massage room for my second treatment.
The massage room. 
They even provided shower cap and disposable underwear. 

Another section of the room that has a jacuzzi tub and a shower place. 

Prior to the massage, I was asked to undress and take a soak in a tub filled with warm water and essential oil for a maximum of 20 minutes called Kneipp Hydrotherapy Jacuzzi treatment. It is basically a bath spa with soothing jets pressure that promotes relaxation to your muscles and improves blood circulation. With the jacuzzi treatment, you’ll enjoy a better massage as it allows your massage therapist to work deeper without feeling pain. You can even take a power nap cause it's that relaxing. You will find yourself sweating during the jacuzzi treatment, but it's normal and you're advised to not stay in for more than 20 minutes.

I took a quick shower after the jacuzzi bath and called out for the massage therapist. You will be required to be totally undressed (hence no photos of me during the massage session :P) but no worries, cause you will be properly draped. The massage therapist was really professional and experienced. The only area exposed will be the area being worked on by the therapist. Overall, the deep tissue massage session was an invigorating experience. She started off from my back with a good amount of pressure and then to my peripheral limbs. She targeted mostly on the deep tissues as well as trigger points. By the time the massage ended an hour later, I felt myself loose and relaxed. I was advised to drink a lot of water to hydrate myself. It did feel a bit sore the next day but most importantly, I had a really good sleep that night since I've been having insomnia for quite some time. 

Here are some useful tips for those who are going for a massage:
  • Eat light at least an hour before your session. Having a small amount of food in your stomach will prevent you from feeling hungry without causing you to feel bloated. 
  • Communicate with your massage therapist. Make sure that she is aware of your comfort level with the intensity of the pressure, so give your feedback to help the therapist understand your needs.
  • Just relax and enjoy the massage (: 
  • Hydrate yourself with plenty of water after therapy! Herbal teas are good too.
