What’s One “In” Thing in Cagayan de Oro?


Massage anyone?



Have you been around Divisoria in Cagayan de Oro early in the evening? If you have, you’ve probably seen a scene like this:

This trend started when the Night Café was born; the whole length of the Divisoria Park began to be filled with blind masseurs giving massages to clients.



Now, head, shoulder, even foot massages are no longer an exclusive service provided by blind masseurs. This has become a livelihood for hilot’s, masahista’s, even men and women who are not certified or experienced masseurs.

But it seems people don’t mind at all whether the one massaging them is certified or not. I still have to see one client asking the masseur if he or she has a certificate from TESDA or ALS. I guess people are just akin to getting a soft and relaxing massage. Touch therapy, after all, is therapy still, most especially to the tired and aching.
