posted in: Beauty and Wellness, Health | 0

In trying to make a living and shape a bright future for ourselves, we sometimes forget that we’re not robots, we’re humans too and we need rest. When the body gets too stressed and overworked, a good massage or a day to pamper oneself is sometimes all we need to revive us and renew the strength we need to continue with our daily activities.

That is what Pohoda Spa & Sauna is here for. This newly opened spa is located at Montecarlo Building at Corrales Street. The one in our city is a franchise from their original branch in Davao City. Most of their services at the main branch are the same, only a few things are different.

Pohoda means “contentment and relaxation”, it’s also a “warrior” in Greek mythology. When we asked the owner what inspired her to open a spa in Cagayan de Oro, she said that she was a spa lover and always found going to different spas addicting. This habit helped her de-stress and so she thought one day, why not open her own?

Services Offered

Pohoda Spa & Sauna offers a wide range of services such as; Massages, Facials, Nails and Waxing.

But when asked what their signature services are, the owner mentioned the following:

Balinese Massage 1 Hour (P300) – Focuses on pressure points. It is the healing massage of Balinese people in Indonesia.

European Facial (P250) – A relaxing facial that removes blemishes, dirt and leaves your face clear, bright and white.

Diamond Peel (P450) – Scrapes off dead skin and is a mechanical exfoliation technique that is very similar to micro derm abrasion. It removes excess oil, dirt and dead cells on the surface of the skin to reveal the younger, brighter skin cells underneath.

Eyebrow Embroidery – It is a semi-permanent pigment that’s pushed into the surface of the skin with a fine blade to mimic the growth of your already existing hair and create bolder, natural-looking brows.

Why You Should Choose Pohoda Spa

With so many spas in the city, what is Pohoda’s x-factor? What makes them stand out from the rest? According to the owner, she’s proud to say that they don’t offer “extra service” and their therapists are trained to say “no” to indecent proposals.

Aside from that, their spa is always clean, they have friendly and courteous staff plus they offer high-quality services at affordable prices.
