Pinoy Hilot or the traditional Filipino massage has long been a remedy to aching joints “rayuma”, panuhot, colds or fever “lagnat” even. Way back 500 years ago, the Pinoy or locals are accustomed to seek first the services of the manghihilot (Hilot massage) in their village to cure certain health conditions before going to the doctor. Classic, really. The manghihilot are mostly women, grandmas ” lola” to be exact.
This is tradition and is still practiced although now more classy – done in the confines of a spa with experienced Tesda accredied Hilot therapists to readily perform Pinoy massage strokes and we call it ” Hagod ” at ” Haplos” .
Most Filipinos nowadays miss lola’s good ‘ol massage tricks and apparently prefer hilot rather than famous international specialties such as the Swedish and Thai massage. Interestingly, foreigners also prefer the traditional hilot, making Shui Hilot Spa a destination for the best of the best Manghihilot in the Philippines.

( Story about Manghihilot ng Mulanay by Marlo Magtibay) – ” Oyag ” , ito ang tawag sa karaniwang nararanasan ng mga bata sa probinsya namin. Taga Mulanay Quezon ako. Doon ako ipinanganak hanggang nagtapos ako ng high school.
Natutuwa akong ibahagi ang aking kaalaman tungkol sa mga karanasan ko noong panahon ng aking kabataan. Naalala ko kapag nag loose bowel ako at sumakit ang tiyan ko, ang sabi ng Lola ko may ” Oyag ” daw ako. agad dadalhin ako sa Manghihilot para ipagamot. Virgin coconut oil at ipinainit na dahon ng saging ang gagamitin para maiayos ang masama kong nararamdaman , makalipas ang 15 minuto na hagod ng mga palad at tulong ng dahon ay nawala ang sakit ng aking tiyan, balik sa normal ang aking pagdumi at guminhawa ang aking pakiramdam.
” Pita” naman kung tawagin kapag meron akong pilay o nadislocate ang mga buto ko, sa Hilot din ako gumagaling. nagpapasalamat ako na naibalik natin ang kultura at tradisyon ng Pinoy Hilot.
Hilot Heals talaga, Mabuhay !
