Atman Spa, an urban oasis in downtown GenSan
the individual soul or essence; the essence that is eternal, unchanging, and indistinguishable from the essence of the universe.
A person who is entirely in touch with his spiritual side is an example of someone deeply connected to his atman.

A lot of spas have sprouted all over General Santos City for the past months providing the generals more choices on where to relax and rejuvenate themselves.
Atman Spa is one of the newer GenSan spas which i fortunately was able to try out a month after it opened in September last year and boy, am I glad that I did. I am now a regular habitue of this downtown wellness spa and massage haven.
Located at the ground floor of the three-storey Johnston Building, at the corner of Magsaysay Avenue and Beatiles Street, Atman Spa which the owners haved termed as an “urban day spa”, has a lot of things going for them.
For one, it has the most impressive lobby among all the spas and massage centers mushrooming in the Tuna Capital. There are three sets of comfortable lounging sofas where one can wait for his turn among the 15 or so therapists and served Atman iced tea or relax after a massage and being offered hot ginger tea.
Once inside, clients can choose from any of the kinds of massage therapies available and other services that they offer. I always go for the Atman Signature Spa which is priced at P300, and is a combination of Swedish and Shiatsu strokes.
The therapists (you can choose between male and female) will then usher you to the foot cleansing seats where you are initially given shoulder massages as your feet are soaked in a bucket of water mixed with soap and rose petals. While enjoying this, you can check check your Facebook updates on your mobiles because, yes, Atman Spa has FREE WIFI.
After about 10 minutes, guests are led upstairs where they pass fragrant candle-lit pathways that immediately induce them into a very serene state of mind.
Each of Atman Spa’s ten walled rooms is very spacious and is limited to one bed and thus, gives the client enough privacy that he wants to snore as much as he wants. Despite the spa being located downtown, the noise from the outside traffic are heavily muted and could barely be heard inside the rooms. The bed’s mattresses are firm and comfy enough to put customers at ease as they place their trust to the care of Atman Spa’s therapists’ nimble hands.
What about the massage itself? Well, the fact that I have chosen Atman Spa to be my top choice of spa speaks a lot about the skills of their therapists. The masseurs/masseuses are all Tesda-trained and undergo regular skills-training and customer-service seminars to ensure that their clients get the optimum service that they expect.
