For P250, I get a relaxing massage bundled with a summary of local gossip, spiritual advice, indigenous beauty regimen, and motivational talks – all thanks to the reflexologist.

Next to the family, this massage is what I look forward to in the trips back home. It takes about two hours of muscle kneading and joint cracking to get into that almost trancelike state. All I can do is sleep after the session.

The traditional hilot and reflexology combined is a must try when you visit the rural towns. Every town has their resident hilot. Just ask the locals to recommend one. With the new media, your hilot is just an SMS away.
