We all deserve to pamper ourselves after a hard day at work, but rather than wasting your hard-earned cash and getting drunk on cocktails, take a trip to relaxation town instead, population: you! Check out some of these massage places in Manila that cater to just about any budget size:
For those who don’t mind splurging
2nd Floor Dusit Hotel Nikko, Theater Drive, Ayala Center, Makati, 1200 Metro Manila, Philippines
Soothe the aches on your neck, shoulders, and upper back, and lounge in Devarana Spa’s heated beds and delight in the Ginger Compress and Back Massage. Their well-trained therapists will not only make the day’s stress a mere afterthought, but will also set your mind at ease.
Escape from the city's hectic life and book a retreat from one of The Spa’s seven branches in Manila. The outlet also offers services to target your scalp, body, face, and feet. And in case you feel like treating yourself, they have packages to suit all your needs—whether you need a red-carpet treatment or a couple’s retreat.
For the modest spender

Maria Clara St, Santa Mesa Heights, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines
For massage-seekers on a budget, Ahavia Spa’s services are priced below P1000. The downside is that you don't get a private room, but you'll still be able to relax thanks to the soothing ambience and skilled hands of their masseuses.
McKinley Park Residences Unit 318, 31st Corner 3rd Avenue, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines
Mandara Spa is situated in the heart of bustling Bonifacio Global City and is an oasis perfect for a little quiet time while waiting for the rush hour to allay. Most of their services are priced below P1000 and range from full body massages using organic aromatic oils to facials for that much-needed beauty boost.

Wherever you find yourself in Manila, sit back, relax, and enjoy the back rub (and then some)! Maybe you want to spend a little more for a full-fledged spa experience, or perhaps you’d prefer something that doesn’t require you to step out of your home altogether – you can’t go wrong with either!
