AFTER a long tiring day, most of us are looking for something that could eliminate the stress we had from work or school.
Some would prefer to binge watch with their fave movies and series, some would indulge in stress eating while some prefer to pamper their selves to spas and wellness centers for a relaxing massage experience.
While there are dozens of massage centers in Davao City, thousands of Dabawenyos chose this homegrown establishment because it totally serves as a perfect antidote to stress.
Here are Dabawenyos’ three reasons why they always go to Elysia Wellness Spa after a stressful and tiring day.
Massage and spa paradise
The ambiance and the services offered by Elysia Wellness Spa can bring healing to clients in an instant.
It offers multiple massage modalities catering to client’s different needs.
In Elysia, you get to choose whether a Swedish, Shiatsu and Thai massage or a combination of any. It also has bamboo, hot stone and Bentosa massage. Aside from these, the wellness spa also offers foot massage and other spa treatments.
“One of the core intentions of why we exist is to provide healing to our clients through massage and spa. We would like to also encourage the families to do it together, consider it as a healthy bonding,” Cherry Al-ag, owner of Elysia said.
A massage treatment in Elysia surely can channel stress free, feel-good energy through our bodies. Indeed, getting a massage not only helps us relax, but also improves sleep and boost the immune system.
Whether you are in the northern or southern part of the city, Elysia got you covered. In just for some four years, it already has five branches around the city.
From its first branch in Toril, Elysia strengthened its presence in the metro. It has now branches in Bangkal, Obrero, Eden Nature Park, and Go Hotels Lanang.
At present, the homegrown massage and spa center has a total of 50 employees from just eight people when it started.
“I think in Davao City we are the only one who can field 20 massage therapists at a time without closing our branches. We have been providing spa party to companies and corporate events,” Al-ag said.
Elysia is also the exclusive spa and massage provider of Davao’s premier hotels - Seda Abreeza Hotel and Park Inn by Radisson Davao.
“We are working on more partner establishments. We pray that we will expand more in Davao or maybe other cities, and reach Asean,” she added.
Moreover, it is a proud member of Davao Wellness and Spa Association (Davwell) and Davao Tourism Association. It is also accredited by the Department of Tourism and Davao City Tourism Operations Office.
Friendly, well-trained staff
Beyond the relaxing ambiance, multiple massage modalities, what sets Elysia above the other spa and massage centers is its exceptional and competent staff and therapists.
“Clients are handled by health professionals who are competent and experienced with the proper qualifications carrying either a certificate from the Department of Health (DOH) as a Licensed Massage Therapist or studying in a DOH-accredited Training Institution for licensure, and NC II holders on Massage Therapy from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda),” she said.
Al-ag shared that just last April 2017, Elysia got a funding from the PUM Netherlands that enabled their staff to learn and experience what really is an international standard for massage and spa therapy.
“So an international expert really visited them and stayed for almost a month and gave them lectures and trainings based on the international standard,” she shared.
Elysia Wellness Spa, engaged in the business of caring and healing, is indeed a massage and spa paradise for the whole family.
Elysia is open from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
