Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Chill by Swasana Spa, Impiana KLCC Hotel Review

5.28.2017

the luxury foot massage you should try even once

I pay good money to enjoy spas and massages at luxury resorts and hotels because there's where all good things happen. Not that you're going to hit a jackpot good thing but the kind of good thing where your mind, body, and soul would thank you for it. Since my first paycheck, I visited and tried almost all the spas on my bucket list except for Swasana Spa at Impiana KLCC Hotel. I wonder how that got missed. They won the World Luxury Spa Awards 2016, TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence in 2016 and Spa of the year (2016 – 2018) by Hapa Awards.  The spa is designed with the hectic traveler in mind. They offer body treatments, therapeutic getaways and rejuvenating treatments in the form of Balinese, Thai, and Malay traditional treatments.

Now I do believe I owed it to all the bodily love I get for my youthfulness (no I'm not talking about sex here). Google massage benefits and you'll see all the benefits listed and explained. I would think the number 1 reason and benefit is that it releases stress. Why do people go for a massage? To relax, to destress, to chill.

My latest visit is to Swasana Spa in the heart of the city. The Golden Triangle to be exact. It's just a cross away from KLCC. They recently introduced a new service which is a lot more affordable compared to their menu called Chill by Swasana Spa.

Not to say it's cheap, it isn't btw. If cheap is what you're looking for, I would recommend the up and coming Footsie at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. Clean, good, and they have a foot theater (yes a foot cinema to watch movies while you get your feet massaged).

Chill by Swasana Spa, on the other hand, is a heightened version of your usual foot reflexology. You won't need to worry about masseuses talking with each other right in front of you. There won't be a language barrier as well so both of you have an understanding of why you're there. The fine dining of foot reflexology minus the small portions. In fact, you're getting a large portion of well-being here because, from the moment you step into Swasana Spa, you're going to feast your eyes at the beautiful oasis of senses.

While it's a small spa, in my opinion, it has all the right elements. Just take a look at my iPhone pic that I sneakily snap while going to the changing room.


Swasana Spa, Impiana KLCC Hotel

They have four Chill treatments to choose from Chill Classic, Chill Out, Ultimate Chill and Holistic Chill. The Holistic Chill is highly recommended for those who are looking for a therapeutic full-body treatment, jet-lagged or about to board a long-haul flight. I took the Classic Chill, which is designed for those on the go or at least looking to destress during lunch hours or in between their travel itinerary. The difference between Chill and the usual treatment menus is you don't need to change your clothes or get down to just your panties. If you want to be comfortable, you can request for a change into the drawstring pants and oversized shirt (which I did).

Chill Classic 60mins RM180
Transform your day with a combination massage that concentrates on the feet and ankle, finishing with your neck and shoulders to leave you relieved off the day's duress.

Chill Out 60mins RM180
Experience our deeply relaxing full-body pressure point massage as our therapist focus on clearing your energy pathways.

Ultimate Chill 90mins RM210
A combination of acupressure and reflexology, this 90-minute treatment that focuses on your feet, ankles, neck and shoulders is the answer to a very long day at work.

Holistic Chill 90mins RM210
A full-body treatment as the name suggests this treatment is an extension of Chill Out. The focus is on specific, reflex and acupressure points of the body to prevent or alleviate symptoms of jet lag, which caters for frequent flyers before or after a flight.

*all prices inclusive of 6% GST.

No oils would be used btw because all Chill treatments focus on reflexology and acupressure (alternative healing) Acupressure focuses on specific points of the body (your meridians) and through precise finger placements and techniques, relieves pain and destresses you. At this point you'll be thinking, omg it's going to be painful? I can't take the pain! and the memories of Thai reflexology massage starts haunting you (okay me).

Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points and meridians much like acupuncture does with the use of needles. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body's life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing - source.

Well, acupressure isn't the bad painful where you squirm or let out a horrible facial expression. It's the good kind and it isn't painful at all. Sure it pokes you at the right places but you're going to feel so good after that. It's like being kneaded like a dough.. and you form into a beautiful soft springy dough ready to go into the oven to become fluffy bread.

I chose Chill Classic because I prefer my massages to focus on my feet, neck, and shoulders. There's where all my burden stress is at. Only if I've time and I'm on a holiday, I would go for the full on body experience. This was a good choice because, OH MAN.. it was so relaxingly good. I felt like the dough who's ready for the oven.

Swasana Spa has turned this area into the Chill area
the lounging sofa beds are now replaced with reflexology beds

I'm going to rewind and talk about my experience here. After I changed into my spa attire provided by the spa of course, I was ushered to the Chill area which was formerly a lounging area overlooking the beautiful Impiana KLCC Hotel swimming pool. Just like your usual foot massage center, there's no privacy here but then again you're not semi-naked. Each reflexology bed is separated by a curtain and with each bed, your very own therapist there serving you like a queen (hotel service ftw).

My therapist was gentle, and always smiling. She preps me for my treatment by making sure I'm comfortable. The bed is well designed for the treatment. I lay there comfortable and she placed an aromatic eye pillow over me. AND here I thought I'm going to be staring at my phone reading Facebook updates but they're not going to let you do that. After what you paid for, no way. They mean business.

Next, she places earphones in my ears, connected to an iPod and asked if the volume is alright? OMG.. they're drowning me with spa music in total darkness now. This is so cool.

Leaving me with only my sense of touch, the whole experience is enhanced. I could feel her every touch, every pressure from her gentle but ferocious strength melting my feet away with her fingers, I slept, to the sound of oceans and chimes calling.

When I woke up, I thought this must have been forever. I couldn't walk properly, I felt light, my legs loose. I fumble my way out of Chill and to my dressing room. This experience left me with a good impression to come back for more and I would recommend it to my friends who's traveling to the city and needing a good recovery before they go back.

This review is written based on my honest feedback and experience here. This is my first time to Swasana Spa and will not be my last time. You may not have the same experience as me because we're two different beings. I do hope if you try this, let me know what you think and if you had the same dough to oven feel.

P.S: Guests of the spa are able to enjoy the Spa's other facilities - the steam room, sauna, infinity-edge swimming pool and fitness centre.
