When I was young, my grandmother was doing some traditional healing to me whenever I’m sick. This is what old people call “Bentosa”. I am thankful that many of Spa nowadays has this kind of service. Nowadays, whenever my cold is about to get worse, my body muscles especially at the back is aching severely and it’s getting harder for me to breath. I knew that there is some built-up tension or what other people called “lamig” at my back. I have proven it myself that Ventosa / Bentosa makes me feel better after the procedure. Ventosa / Bentosa is the process of placing suctioning glass (preferably thick glasses) on specific pressure points of the back. This will create a vacuum by burning a cotton ball and placing it in an upside down glass. The glass will then be placed at the back. It will vacuum your skin. The heat inside the glass sucks the air away from your back. Ventosa / Bentosa have many benefits. It drains excess toxins, relieves bronchial congestion, promotes blood circulation, regulates blood pressure, and relieves sensation of fatigue muscles and many more. The glass will suck your back skin for about 10 min. The strong hold of the glass indicates that you have a lot of “lamig” (air) in your muscle. The glass will leave a red trace on your back but don’t worry because it will just last up to 2 days. Mont Albo Massage Hut offers a Filipino traditional massage and home therapy. I can always run to Mont Albo anytime since its Pasong Tamo branch is just a walk away from my home. This branch is smaller than Ginhawa Spa and Dining (High End branch along Chino Roces). There are beddings separated by white curtain, relaxing sound of nature which will make you fall asleep and aromatic scent of oil. When availing the Ventosa / Bentosa, you should have availed any kind of body massage first because Ventosa / Bentosa is just an add on service which will cost you P 80.00. It is perfectly matched with their signature therapy which is the Mont Albo Massage. This will cost you P 330.00 for an hour. It is one of a kind for it soothes all muscles from head to foot. You can choose which pressure you prefer (Soft, moderate, Hard). A tea will be given as free after the massage.
