A Truly Filipino Massage: Hilot

Hilot therapy is indigenously Filipino that has been practiced for centuries.  Although hilot therapy is indigenously Filipino, it has traces of influence from traditional Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurveda, and the Yunani-Tibb medical traditions of Greece and Persia.
Hilot is a Filipino traditional healing art which include paligo (bath with flowers and herbs, believed to have healing properties), oslob (inhalation of steam from infusions of air-dried aromatic herbs), dinalisay (decoctions of a mixture of native medicinal herbs), kisig galing (biomagnetic energy healing), unang lana (virgin coconut oil), tapik kawayan (tapping of bamboo sticks to affected body parts for increasing fluid circulation and releasing of stagnant energy).
Dagdagay is native foot massage practiced in the Mountain Province, specifically in Sagada, Bauko, Besao, Tadian and Sabangan. Also known as "kol-kolis," Dagdagay uses two sticks to massage the feet in rolling and scratching motions from the heel to toes to stimulate blood circulation.
One wellness center that offers hilot to its clients is Shui Hilot Healing Spa. Shui Hilot offers the following:
