If you haven't read my previous post on Sojourn Guest House yet, click here to read about my really comfortable and relaxing family staycation a couple of weeks back. As promised, today's writeup will be on the Jade Stone Accupressure Body Massage that the wife and I experienced at their in-house HerbaLine Facial Spa. Live Well, Look Well, Eat Well, the HerbaLine Facial Spa certainly covers the Look Well aspect of Sojourn's tagline.

The Jade Stone Accupressure Body Massage, in-house spa is included in our 3-in-1 Staycation Family Room package. After checking in, and booking our suitable time to go for our massage and spa session, the wife and I quickly changed into the bright coloured kimono and sandals found inside our room. There we were, at HerbaLine spa, located on the first floor of Sojourn Guest House, all ready to enjoy what was to come. Read on!

Loving the green and nature concept, it was again prevalent everywhere I see and smell. We were served with lemongrass tea before proceeding to the table at their lounge for a short consultation session. We did not take their relaxing facial treatment that day, and instead took up the Jade Stone Accupressure Body Massage session instead. It was a treat!

Once inside, we proceed immediately to wash and scrub our feet, in preparation for an experience with the fishes in the Fish Foot Spa Pool. Yes, that's the one where you get tickled by hundreds of these small fishes, which suck and 'kiss' all your dirt, and impurities away (from the feet). I've tried these before, but never actually stuck till the end, so I'm rather proud of myself this time.
|"Kisses" from these little fishes|
After getting all our dead skins eaten up by the fishes, with light springy steps, we proceed to our couple massage rooms. Bear in mind at HerbaLine Facial Spa, no male is allowed in for the massage except when companied by the wife, girlfriend or a female companion. This, as I was told is to prevent any hanky panky business from occurring. This also means I cannot come back by myself next time!

The Jade Stone Accupressure Body Massage is done by very experienced therapists, using these jade stones to literally pull and massage your nerves into a soothing pleasuring end. We were given a complimentary parafin wax treatment before the massage, which costs only RM29 if not taken in the package. My first time, I was intrigued by how the hot wax was literally poured into a plastic bag before being wrapped around my feet.

|Thank you very much Miss.|
I was really surprised by the result of the parafin wax treatment, as the wax was left on during my massage session, only removed midway through. The feet felt so smooth I almost thought they turned my feet into a ladies' one. Okay, maybe not, but hey, a first for me! After the delightful Jade Stone Accupressure Body Massage, my body felt like a heavy weight has been taken off. Good stuff.

You know what I like about HerbaLine Facial Spa, Sojourn Guest House? It's the fact that the therapist and staff inside never pushes or coerce you into signing up for all those expensive packages. It was a straight forward, hassle free experience, you get what you pay for. In fact, I dare to say you get a lot more, way more than what you pay. Definately recommended. We then head on to have our dinner at Mama Kim Restaurant, serving healthy cuisine, also in the same building.
Watch out for my subsequent review post on the restaurant! And do remember to read my writeup on Sojourn Guest House (Sojourn Guest House and HerbaLine Facial Spa @ Pandan Indah, Kuala Lumpur)
