Rhythm & Motion is a one-of-a-kind spa treatment available at Rock Spa, at Hard Rock Hotel Penang. It is the only treatment of its kind in Malaysia. Only selected Hard Rock Hotel branches offer this treatment. In the Asia Pacific region, the only other Hard Rock Hotel where you can get the Rhythm & Motion treatment is at Hard Rock Hotel Bali. Elsewhere, it is also available at Hard Rock Hotel locations in Ibiza, Palm Springs, Punta Cana and Riviera Maya.

Rhythm & Motion has been described as the world's first fully immersive music-centric spa experience. It incorporates the amplified vibrations that resonate from listening to music. This groundbreaking spa experience ushers guests into a unique massage journey.

To incorporate the music vibrations into the massage experience, a special massage table is used. This table reveberates the bass and treble beats of music which the guest selects from a menu.

I was privileged to experience Rhythm & Motion during my recent stay at Hard Rock Hotel Penang. My masseuse, Mel, turned out to be a very experience masseur indeed. She introduces me to this unique spa experience, explaining how the pulsating music is synced to the massage.

The choice of music playlists were available including Ultimate Chill, Memory Lane, By The Sea and Sonic Restoration. I chose By The Sea. As for the massage oil, I chose "Balance", which has essential oils from rosemary and orange, among others.

Rhythm & Motion is so unlike any massages I have experienced before. This is a full-body massage that started from my toes and culminates at the top of my head. It took about one and a half hours in total. I had my eyes closed much of the time, as I gave away to a relaxing session immensed in the pulsating vibes of the music.
