Sometimes after a long week, you feel all drained out, and you just want to lie down in bed the entire weekend to recharge. Well, what if I told you there's a better way to recharge than just sleeping in bed for two whole days?
Thanks to The Butterfly Project and Amante Nail Spa and Body Care, I was given the opportunity to experience a 60-minute Aromatherapy Massage worth RM88. You might have heard of Amante before, and I blogged about it during the Bloggers' Massage Party organised by the Butterfly Project at Amante's Sri Petaling branch.
As part of their token of appreciation for attending the Massage Party,we were each given a voucher to be redeemed at their various Amante outlets, and I was given mine to be redeemed at their Kota Damansara branch. Lucky for me, it was a voucher that I needed cos I was all bogged down with work stress. I was really stretching myself very thinly with all that I had going on, and I just needed some time to unwind and get myself geared up once more for another hectic week ahead. Hence, a body massage is in order!
I've always seen the Amante sign whenever I was driving around the Dataran Sunway area, but I never did head up to the third floor where the shop was located. That day, I called and made an appointment, intent on using my voucher and getting some relaxing time all to myself.
When I went up the ramp to the parking area, and finally drove myself to the third floor, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Amante had so thoughtfully saved spots specially for their customers. It was such a thoughtful act that I absolutely had to take a picture of it and show to you guys :)
And there was not one, but three reserved parkings just for Amante customers! No doubt in anticipation of the weekend crowd :)
What I liked about Amante was that they always had something special for their customers, and there was always an ongoing promotion. Wherever you are, if there's an Amante branch near you, bring a friend with you and enjoy a service of the same value for free!
If you're a new customer, you will be entitled to a free manicure or Aromatherapy massage all for free every Wednesdays! Because Amante understands a woman's needs, and loves you for it :)
The interior of the place was also spacious, and tastefully done. All in all, there was a very nice ambience, with relaxing music playing in the background.
Apart from Mani Pedis, and Massages, they also provide facial services, and this is the array of products they use for their facials.
As is with all nail parlours, it's always awesome to see so many colours displayed in all their glory for all to see. I nearly fainted at the sight of all those OPI Nail Lacquers, fit for every single occasion.
When I entered through the doors, they were expecting me, and after confirming that I was indeed Choulyin and was there for my Aromatherapy Massage appointment, they promptly proceeded to lead me to my massage chamber, where I was told to undress and lie in wait for my masseuse.
I was given a towel, shower cap to keep my hair in, and a "G-string" to wear. As this is an Aromatherapy Massage, they will be using massage oils to spread around your body while relieving the pressure points, and your entire body gets the massage treatment, which means you will need to strip all the way down until you're naked and just using the G-string provided to you.
The massage oil they used was Lemongrass Essential Oil, suitable to release the tension in your muscles and relaxing the tenseness in your body.
I have to admit, while it was a little painful in the beginning, I slowly got used to it, and I was enjoying it so much I almost fell asleep >.< The masseuse found the right pressure points and slowly kneaded the knots out of my body, leaving me feeling relaxed and in a better mood. The 60-minutes finished all too soon, and I was sad that I had to leave the massage bed >.<
Verdict: 8/10. I really liked their service, and their attention to detail. The good thing was that my masseuse told me what was wrong with my body and which parts I should pay attention to, and why she was doing what she did.
Will I go back? Yes! In fact, I even signed up for their 90-minutes massage package, where I get 6 Massage sessions, and get three more free :) Their 90-minute Aromatherapy massage costs RM128, so effectively I'm only paying about RM85 for a 90-minute session (which is even cheaper than their 60-minute session).
Last comments: I think if you have never gone for a massage before, you should try this out. If you're afraid of the pain, just let the masseuse know, and she will know how much pressure to apply so that you wouldn't feel like she's killing you :p Trust me, after you're done, you will actually feel loads better! :)
I'm gonna go try their facials next, see if they're any good :D Will write a review about it if I do!! :)
