Bahay Haraya Spa & Healing is a licensed concept spa in the Philippines offering an escape from the stresses of the real world through Filipino massage and mysticism. Founded in 2014, Bahay Haraya was part of the wave of ideas-driven startups that turned Maginhawa Street, Quezon City into the art and food hub that it is today. Since then, Bahay Haraya has provided expert and unique spa services to thousands of professionals, students, tourists, retirees, couples, groups, and families.
For every client, Bahay Haraya offers three things: an experience of Filipino healing, an escape into Filipino mysticism, and the nurture of a Filipino home.
Healing. All the services of Bahay Haraya are based on hilot, the ancient Filipino art of healing through massage and native chiropractics. A medicinal tradition that has continually evolved through generations, hilot has been developed and infused by Bahay Haraya into a diversity of techniques and methods. The result in each case is a unique experience of Filipino healing, through the masterful touch of therapists licensed by the Skills Authority and the Department of Health.
Mysticism. Everyday life in Metro Manila can become tiring, repetitive, and stressful. The rise of the Filipino spa industry meant to address this; instead, massages have only become quick, mechanical, and monotonous. Bahay Haraya offers a real escape from metropolitan life, and merges what were once inseparable in Filipino culture – massage and mysticism. From the entrancing music to mythological symbols and to every detail in Silid Engkantada (Room of Enchantment), Silid Agimat (Room of Talismans), and Silid Kawayan (Room of Bamboos), Bahay Haraya is an explosion of Filipino mystique that transforms each long stroke and deep pressure into a retreat from reality.
Home. Nothing can be more relaxing than the familiarity and hospitality of a Filipino home. Every day, Bahay Haraya welcomes clients into the nurture of a Filipino home, with the concern and courtesy characteristic of a Filipino family. Before each service, adjustments are made to suit every client’s needs and preferences, and feet are washed to ensure ease and comfort. After the service, clients are offered the cozy warmth and flavor of Bahay Haraya’s own salabat, the Filipino family’s ginger tea for healing and relaxation. Indeed, Bahay Haraya is home.
