Beauty is a balancing act

MANILA, Philippines - Wellness is not simply about maintaining a healthy body, but also achieving that balance and synergy in mind, body and spirit. All three are said to be realigned through a pure, invigorating Chakra Massage.

As the Chakra Massage is based on Eastern traditions and philosophies, there is also a unique science to the treatment. Ranjeet Kour, the international trainer who introduced the treatment to BlueWater Day Spa, shares,  “Chakra Massage is based on a unique understanding of the body, and how energy flows through it. The massage is able to control and redirect energy by combining guided meditation with hands-on chakra healing.”

When we feel negativity or get sick, it is believed that the Chakra points located in different parts of our bodies are not aligned. The Chakra Massage offers real physical and mental benefits as affirmed by model Michelle Dee and Mr. Chinatown David Licauco.

An avid spa-goer, David has recently discovered the unique benefits of the wellness center’s Chakra treatment. “I have always believed in balance — in my work and in my personal life. So when it comes to the Chakra Massage, I understand the need for achieving that balance in my body as well.” Through the soothing, rhythmic movements of the massage, the rejuvenating powers of the stones and crystals, and the cozy ambience of the spa, David is able to ease into a state of calm and relaxation, which helps in his body’s healing. “After one session, you feel amazing. You’re refreshed and full of energy,” he says.

“I make sure to schedule a treatment regularly, especially now since my work schedule has become more demanding,” shares the 21-year-old actor who joined the stellar cast of GMA-7’s Mulawin (the remake). He is also currently working on a movie with actress Isabelle de Leon. “Of course, it’s really important to look good in my field of work. Working out, eating right and taking care of my body are important and essential.”

Michelle Dee, a 21-year-old model and daughter of beauty queen Melanie Marquez, agrees with David about the benefits of Chakra healing. “Stress is the No. 1 cause of imbalance in your life/body. It affects you physically, emotionally and mentally. While we can’t avoid stress, we can, however, combat it. In my life, I try to manage how stress or negativity affects me. As much as possible, I don’t allow it to hamper my ability to perform and work. But when it does, I seek spa treatments to help me calm my mind, and bring me back to my center,” she explains.

“Gone are the days when spa pampering is a luxury; it is a form of self-investment because without a healthy mind and body, you will not be able to be your 100-percent best,” she says. “I love making my body feel good and feel strong. And when you’re that positive, you’re healthier overall. For me, treating yourself to the spa is necessary for your well-being.”

David Licauco and Michelle Dee understand the value of recharging the mind, body and spirit through a good spa treatment. They both agree that you can make yourself strong by making sure that you achieve that balance in your body. David and Michelle say that when everything is aligned and your energy is flowing, you’ll feel more in control and ready to take on the world.
