There are things that we don’t realize until we get older. For me, one of them is importance of getting a massage. When I was younger, I really was not in to spas or massages, but when my body couldn’t handle the weight of the stress piling up caused by adulting, it was a Thai massage that saved me.
There are only a few spas and massage in the area you can got to but one that’s worth taking note of is Chang Traditional Thai Massage. It’s located at Kalayaan Ave cor. Alier St. in Makati – a stone throw away from Rockwell’s corporate vibe Poblacion’s youthful ambiance. So whether you want to de-stress from work or escape the party, Chang Traditional Thai Massage is waiting for you.
The interior vibe separates you from the busy scenes of Rockwell and Poblacion. The purple and gold color, nothing gets more Thai than that.
As for the services Chang Traditional Thai Massage offers:
- Thai Foot Massage
- Thai Body Massage
- Head, Back, & Shoulder Massage
- Thai Body Massage w/ Oil
- Swedish Massage

- Body Scrub + Swedish Massage
My wife went from the Body Scrub + Swedish Massage and I tried something else – Aromatherapy Bliss. Before heading to our rooms, we were treated to a foot scrub.
There are a total of eight (8) massage rooms separated by thick curtains for privacy and can be held out if you and your partner want to be share a room. The elevated beds are for used for a different type of massage and body scrub, the floor beds are I guess for harder type of massage.
The masseuses were very courteous and were good with their hands. Each stroke brings me closer to dream land and the masseuse checks for pressure to make sure I am comfortable with it. The whole experience was exactly how it was supposed to be, relaxing.
After an hour and half I was asked if I wanted a cup of tea or a glass of refreshment which was already waiting for me together with a hot towel at the lobby when I went out.
It was a refreshing afternoon, my wife told I should get Body Scrub + Swedish Massage next time because she really liked it, specially the scrubbing part. For us, getting a massage is no longer a luxury but something that we should do on a regular basis to take the stress out our bodies. It’s nice to try a new place every now and then and were’ glad we ran into Chang.
