Banahaw Heals Spa started with the founder’s gifted talent and inherent skills, incorporated with personal research and studies on the nature of spa services in line with body massage.
His constant philosophical thoughts and ideas lead to constrain some practices with regard to rendering professional services in order to cater with the need to relieve client’s body stress, and in line with the true definition of touch therapy as an alternative medicine. It is the founder’s passion and devotion to this career that brought him awareness of a mystical mission, a manifestation of Mt. Banahaw’s healing nature, through massage and touch therapy.
Starting with BHS Platero in 2007, Banahaw Heals Spa currently operate with over a hundred franchised branches in CALABARZON, making BHS one of the fastest growing franchise companies in business offering several services including Swedish and Thai Massages, Tuina, Turtle Walk Massage, Ventusa, and Netibo Healing. Of these services, the latter four are distinctly improved and developed by the founder to cater Banahaw Heals Spa’s distinct identity.
It is also the founder’s over Ten (10)-years significant experience conducting individual body stress healing that is truly distinct and now incorporated in BHS trademark massages and packages. Moreover, it is the need to deliver this mission of mystical healing that brought forth the birth of BHS Services and BHS Franchising network.

He got his primary and secondary education at Notre Dame of Marbel Boys Department, in Koronadal, South Cotabato and graduated with degrees in AB Philosophy and BS Education at Notre Dame of Marbel University. Honed by Notre Dame education and spirit, and under philosophical Influence of Mr. Roberto Insular, he brought these character, charisma and catholic upbringing as foundations and pillars of his life’s ventures.
The art of healing and practice of massage therapy came as directed by the unseen, a practice the founder himself did not anticipate this “gift” that is destined to get discovered and unveiled to the many who became regular clients over his years of practice. By 2001, after few years of part-time teaching at AMA Learning Center in Biñan, he focused full time as massage therapist enhancing his skills and talents to come out with his own trademark healing massages and techniques.
