|I'm Onsen Spa at the I'm Hotel in Makati|
Last week in Manila, living a #Travelife, I decided to get some much needed R&R by spending the day at the newest Japanese spa in Manila. The I'm Spa is a beautiful and well-equipped spa outfitted in soothing colors for complete relaxation.
It also makes use of the latest Japanese technology for beauty and wellness.
AN AUTHENTIC JAPANESE THERMAL BATH
I’M Onsen Spa Makati is the largest urban spa in Manila and the first to offer an authentic Japanese thermal bath that mimics the onsen (a traditional hot spring) in the Philippines.
Hot springs water are believed to have healing powers derived from their mineral content. Each onsen may feature baths with different mineral compositions to enhance specific beneficial properties.

BENEFITS OF BATHING IN HOT SPRINGS
In I’M Onsen Spa Makati, the therapeutic baths each have their unique set of benefits. The carbonated water bath uses proprietary technology from Japan where a high concentration of purified carbon dioxide is infused into the water.
Carbonated water baths are believed to lower blood pressure and improve circulation. Bathing in these waters is also supposed to detoxify and beautify the skin.
BENEFITS OF MINERAL AND CERAMIC BATHS
On the other hand, the mineral bath and ceramic baths are infused with natural minerals extracted from the most famous springs in Japan.
The effect is what the Japanese call tsuru-tsuru (baby-soft skin), as the alkaline water dissolves dirt and sebum. Enjoy the wonders of the I'M onsen spa right in the heart of Makati City.
