Satkara Spa at Casa del Rio offers body massages and facials that aim to invigorate your mind and body. And that was exactly what it did to rif and I, when we each enjoyed a 60-minute signature massage using essential oils from Tanamera.
Upon arriving, we were given a form to fill out; standard spa and massage procedure. Soon after, our masseur ushered us into a spacious suite comprising two massage beds and a bathtub where our treatment began.
The Satkara Signature massage is a fusion of traditional massage technique from around the world – Lomi Lomi, Swedish, Thai and Balinese. My tensed muscles were instantly relieved (along with my accumulated tension and stress) with every kneading stroke from my masseur. You can control the pressure of the massage, but medium pressure yields the best results for me.
My masseur was very experienced and knew all my problem areas without me even telling her. She quickly worked her magic on those areas and I felt so relieved after that. If you get an experienced one, she would be able to minimize any pain from the un-knotting of muscles.
For those who want a stronger and more intense massage, I reckon the Deep Tissue Massage would suit you better. This combines strong pressure and deep movement to relieve pain and tension. Not something I would dare attempt, seeing how I bruise easily.
Satkara spa is open to guests staying at Casa del Rio as well as the public. It’s best to call ahead and make a reservation, to avoid disappointment. To view the full list of massages and facials offered by Satkara Spa, click here. Read about my stay at Casa del Rio here.
