Want to experience the ultimate in relaxation? Then you should not miss the therapeutic tandem massage given by two therapists. In Bacolod City, it is available at Cradle Massage and Wellness Living and is called the Mandara Massage. Learn more about this kind of body massage as well as our experience.
Therapeutic Tandem Massage
The all-new Mandara massage is a kind of therapeutic tandem massage and is the first ever in Bacolod city. With two therapists working on one client in two hours, it is the ultimate indulgence of pleasure, relaxation, and stress relief.
At Cradle Massage, their Mandara massage is a special service where two therapists work in synchronized movements. The partner masseuses work together on an unspoken melodic rhythm of strokes. There are five massage techniques used and these include Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, Swedish, Balinese, Japanese Shiatsu, and Thai stretching. Essential oils are mixed into the massage oil for aromatherapy for the ultimate sensory experience.
What it Entails
There are two components in the therapeutic tandem massage. The therapists practice the strokes for long hours and they should have a good working relationship to make this work.
The first part is called the mirror massage. This technique originated from India and is believed to be around thousands of years ago. It requires that both therapists should work in perfect unison with one another, stroke by stroke.
The second part is called the asynchronous massage. This is where the two therapists work in a complementary way but are not exact mirror opposites. To illustrate, one therapist may be working on the head and relaxing the neck while the other therapist works on the reflex points on one foot.
A therapeutic tandem massage routine is like a seamless dance of both mirror and asynchronous work. It incorporates several techniques to bring ultimate relaxation and healing in just a short amount of time.
Benefits of Therapeutic Tandem Massage
The client or patient receives twice as much massage and health benefits for the allotted amount of time.
Since there is extra-sensory input, many clients find it easier to let go and relax when receiving therapeutic tandem massage.
The Mirror Massage techniques balance both sides of the brain, thereby deeply relaxing the nervous system and creating harmony within the client’s body. It is just perfect for those who have anxiety issues brought about by the pandemic.
Our Experience with Mandara Massage
We tried the Mandara Massage at Cradle Massage and Wellness Living, a well-appointed day spa in Bacolod City.
The Mandara Massage is a two-hour treatment that involves two specially-trained therapists so prior reservations are necessary. This is to make sure that the room is prepared for you and that the therapists are ready for your arrival.
I have to admit that the pacing of the Mandara Massage takes some getting used to. Being a body massage aficionado, I have only ever had one therapist do the treatment.
For one, two people working on you means the use of four hands at one time. The 2-hour session seemed quite long and they thoroughly massage one area, making it longer to get to the next body part.
But all in all, I felt really refreshed by the end of the session. Having two therapists working together made the massage all the more special.
