As we head on deeper into winter and summer seems so far away, the best way to beat those winter blues is to heat up with a rejuvenating spa session. There is no better way to treat your body and mind than with a specialised treatment of your choice and time to yourself to unwind and decompress.
This week’s Cape Town spa features…
Life Day Spa
Nestled in the magnificent Crystal Towers hotel, the Life Day Spa is a world-class establishment with facilities that will take your breath away. I experienced the Journey of Life treatment which consisted of 30 minutes floatation in a salted pool, followed by a Middle Eastern mud ritual, then it was time to unwind with the neck, back and shoulder massage and sole revival foot massage.
The floatation experience was totally unique, as you emerge into this warm, shallow pool that is elegantly lit with strategic lighting, you immediately float. The excess of salt in the water gives you a Dead Sea experience and softens the skin while allowing your body and muscles to relax. Just 30 minutes floating is equivalent to four hours of sleep!
I then stepped into the sauna whereby you exfoliate and apply a mud treatment to your entire body while basking in the heat. A lush rain bursts from above and washes away the excess product. Rinse off in the showers, robe back on, a quick stop at the health food bar to enjoy lemon and mint water and a healthy snack and off to the private massage room. I then enjoyed a calming and de-stressing back massage and foot revival. A highlight was the heated feet coverings that keep your feet warm while the treatment continues, perfect for winter.
The therapist was attentive and extremely informed. She offered me helpful advice about keeping my body healthy and stress-free according to my lifestyle. Life Day Spa is available on The Entertainer App, so be sure to make your booking today!
