Above talks about spa.
TO help uplift the local spa industry and promote wellness, a new spa opened at Parkmall.
Langkawi Discovery Spa offers the “preventive approach” in taking care of one’s body through the use of organic and natural materials.
The spa is eyeing health buffs, nature lovers and environmental protection advocates as potential clients.
Langkawi spa director Sheila Mendez said the facility houses 16 beds and 18 therapists who provide spa services like organic body scrub and foot spa, as well as non-pricking non-surgical facial treatment called Biodroga.
Biodroga is considered a popular anti-aging treatment in Europe, said Mendez.
Ed Mendez, Sheila’s husband, said the family initially invested P3 million for the new facility.
The use of natural essential oils sets Langkawi apart from other spas in Cebu, Ed said.
“Essential oil has a therapeutic effect on our bodies. Our base carrier oil is (from) grape seeds mixed with lavender, cedar wood, rosemary, lemon grass and jojoba, among others.
The smell of essential oil triggers our olfactory senses. Upon massage, it opens up skin pores and penetrates into our circulation system,” said Ed, also Spa Association of the Philippines Inc. national board director for the Visayas and Mindanao.
Langkawi’s signature massages include Kondalini energy revitalizing massage or deep tissue massage, Swedish touch therapy, and Namikotsi shiatsu.
Ed said Langkawi is the only day spa that carries Biodroga products outside Metro Manila since these items can only be found in the country’s resorts and hotels.
When demand for Lang-kawi’s services grows, he said the company will consider opening another outlet in Cebu City.
The spa will formally open on May 30.
Meanwhile, Langkawi is supporting the preservation of the Danajon Reef located near Bohol, Cebu and Leyte.
