Mussels are reputed to be one of the more angst-ridden sea creatures. While sea-snails and hermit crabs are more accepting of their swishy environment, mussels get motion sickness from the tides leading them to clam up and cling to rocks for support while they battle the tides alone. Relax in the knowledge that your clamped up muscles don’t have to go through that distress when you enjoy a knot-kneading aromatherapy full body massage for R99 at Elements Day Spa.
Elements Day Spa is made up of only the finest elements. Taking pride in every therapist they appoint and the treatments they administer, Elements is a heavenly haven where you can leave all your woes piled up on the front desk and relax. Paying attention to the tiniest of details, these therapists make the art of kneading and massaging melancholy muscles seem practically elementary. Flop down like an exhausted fish and allow the angel-faced therapist to dotingly melt away muscle tension like its ice cream in the sun. With limbs so dedicated to providing the perfect service, even an octopus would feel intimidated.
If the state of relaxation you’re looking for is similar to that of a jellyfish asleep on a bed of marshmallows, an aromatherapy full body massage is just what you need. Similar to a regular massage, but with highly concentrated plant or essential oils added to the oil or lotion, an aroma massage has different and far more effective healing properties. The mystic properties of the oils go to work when absorbed through the skin and when the oil molecules are inhaled; each one unique in its healing abilities. While some calm or energize, others uplift and cleanse; so while a regular massage feels just as incredible, the aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to emotionally related conditions such as stress and anxiety.
When it’s time to leave and you walk out with a spring in your step and that lardy load of stress off your shoulders; please spare a thought for those queasy mussels bouncing away in the waves.
Beauty fact: Before the invention of string cheese, a beauty therapist in Sweden used a single magic highlighter to mark the problem areas on their clients’ bodies. His practice closed down because the highlighter went missing and he was too lazy to look for it.
