Hilot Trilogy

Hilot Treatment in Mandala Spa Boracay Based on the Philippines' traditional healing system known as Hilot, Mandala Spa's Hilot Trilogy has profound and enduring benefits for the mind, body and spirit.

It begins with Hihilaan where coconut oil is applied to strips of banana leaves which are then used to identify areas of imbalance in the physiology. Bentosa, a traditional technique of vacuum cupping is then applied. The vacuum cup is gently moved over affected areas to rebalance the body's heat and energy flow. The journey continues with the combination of long and deep strokes of Hilot, an ancient Filipino therapeutic form of massage. The finish, Dagdagay, is a therapeutic foot massage using two bamboo sticks to stimulate the soles of the feet to balance and boost the body's immune system. The finest 100% extra virgin coconut oil, renowned for its powerful rejuvenating, anti-aging and cleansing properties, is lavishly applied over the entire body throughout the treatment.

Mandala Spa's Hilot Trilogy is a masterpiece of the Philippines unique and strong cultural identity that recognizes the indigenous Filipino healing modalities and traditional rituals. Combined with Mandala's soulful care and masterful technique, the result is a refined and new approach to traditional Filipino healing: the Hilot Trilogy.

Shodhana Karma

Shodhana Karma Treatment in Mandala Spa Boracay Inspired by the ancient Indian system of natural health care Ayurveda, this gentle 3-part ritual promotes healing and rejuvenation by removing environmental toxins from the body.

Part One.
Shodhana Karma starts with a traditional footbath and a Mandala Signature Massage using cold-pressed sesame oil, herbalized with

Calamus root powder. The molecules of cold-pressed sesame oil are smaller than those of our red blood cells, so the oil is able to penetrate the blood stream, attract oil-soluble environmental toxins, and dislodge them consequently from body tissue. Calamus root powder improves energy and is said to be helpful during times of emotional exhaustion.

Part Two.
Following the massage is a sauna ritual (swedana), which integrates several sauna cycles, aromatherapy, and herbal tonics to further aid in the elimination of environmental pollutants from the body through perspiration. Through exposure to sauna heat, the immune system is stimulated and the endocrine glandular functions are regulated. Ginger is one of the main ingredients in the preparation of tonics used in this endeavor. The Rosemary oil used in the sauna water, on the other hand, has a stimulating and invigorating effect.

Part Three.
The treatment closes with the removal of the impurities through the Ubvartan springtime body scrub - a gentle exfoliation process, using only traditional Ayurvedic ingredients. The properties of the oil blend are chosen to balance the emotions and to restore mental and physical equilibrium. Sandalwood connects us to our soul, geranium is emotionally balancing, cardamom alleviates hypertension, and lemongrass is a kidney tonic.

  • I had 1.75 hours of massage, suctions cups and bamboo to my feet, only I fell asleep somewhere in the massage part and missed my feet getting worked on. Nice touches like a sarong to wear, ginger tea before and after, no rushing
