The late-night spa and facial routine starts with a foot spa, inspired by a simple but powerful therapy: the bath routine of the Yao Tribe women. The Yao tribe can be found in the mountainous terrains of southwest and south China, and the women are known to lead lives that are free from sickness and ailments. Possessing a strong constitution, the Yao women can go about their daily activities immediately after giving birth! Their secret to longevity and great health lies in their unique bath concoction made of natural herbs. The women bathe and soak their feet in the blend of herbs every day.

The herbs are speranskia, acacia, turmeric and a mix of rare Yunnan herbs. These herbs help with problems such as insomnia. The herbs open pores; in turn the skin can reap the full medicinal benefits of the herbs. They also aid in enhancing blood circulation and overall well-being. The Yao bath can also accelerate sweating —which enables you to expel the toxins from your body.

 Now, at Huang Ah Ma, you can enjoy the health benefits of this concoction of herbs, and more. The eight-step relaxing spa and facial regimen includes the following:

1)      “Yao Yu” Foot Soak (瑶浴), as outlined above

2)      Back Massage to help relax the body

3)      Artemisia Herbs (艾草) Detox and Ear Candling: Artemisia herbs are placed on the navel, helping you to relax. This step will also detox and clear the meridian. When your body pores are open and the 12 meridian blockages are cleared, harmful materials can be expelled. The multitude of benefits includes skin nourishment, relief of itching as well as prevention and curing of skin and gynaecological diseases. The step will also improve the micro-circulation system, digestion and alleviate problems like fatigue and muscle pain.

4)      Facial Cleanse with Huang Ah Ma’s very own product

3)      Musical Ball Face Massage: This massage will whisk you away to a state of tranquillity. The moving steel balls produce a soft tinkling sound. The therapist will execute four strokes in this order, for the ultimate relaxation:

  1. Effleurage stroke – A soothing, stroking movement used at the beginning of the facial to encourage lymphatic return
  2. Drainage stroke – Lymphatic stimulation and drainage
  3. Soothing stroke – Relax the muscle and skin
  4. Shiatsu pressure – Reduce the pressure stress and mental stress

It was at this step that both Ash and I fell asleep! The comfort we both felt actually built up until the musical ball face massage that we succumbed to slumber. I also liked the scent of the artemisia herbs very much, and found it very soothing and calming to the nerves.

4)      Custom Blended Mask: This soothing chiffon aloe mask is suitable for all skin types. It nourishes and relaxes the skin.

5)      Hand Meridian Massage

This 90-minute treatment, the “Imperial Night Beauty Secret Spa & Facial”, has an introductory price of $88 (UP: $188). It is offered at Huang Ah Ma starting 4 February 2015 onwards.

This treatment is recommended to be experienced from 7pm onwards as the regime is put together to suit one’s skin condition and temperature at night. Due to the herbs and massages, it is not suitable for pregnant ladies and those suffering from cancer.

 Verdict: Overall, the experience was an invigorating one as we both enjoyed the facial with the back massage and other fringe services. It was so relaxing and peaceful to the senses that the process encourages sleep on the comfortable beds. We also emerge out of the session feeling refreshed and recharged, and I did not even put on makeup before leaving for our Valentine’s Day dinner. Although the facial did not include extraction, my face felt smooth, moisturised and healthily clean in a natural way 🙂
