Mandala Spa’s Hilot Trilogy is a masterpiece of the Philippine’s unique and strong cultural identity that recognizes the indigenous Filipino healing modalities and traditional rituals. Based on the Philippines’ traditional healing system known as Hilot, combined with Mandala’s soulful care and masterful technique, the result is a refined and new approach to traditional Filipino healing with profound and enduring benefits for the mind, body and spirit.
It begins with Hihilaan where coconut oil is applied to strips of banana leaves that are then used to identify areas of imbalance. Bentosa, a traditional technique of vacuum cupping rebalances 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, and finishing with Dagdagay, a therapeutic foot massage using bamboo sticks to balance and boost the body’s immune system.
