If you are contortionists, your happy place is a suitcase. If you are a mime your happy place is a box, even if it’s just a metaphorical one. If you are in dire need of an elaborate pamper your happy place should be Aquasia skincare boutique, where you can retreat to for a 30 minute back, shoulder and neck massage and a 30 minute personalised facial for R190.
Aquasia is a lot like the postcard of some exotic Island you keep stuck with press-stick to your computer monitor (without the coffee stains and the number of someone named ‘Carol’ scratched onto the bottom left hand corner). Located right on the picturesque Camps Bay shoreline, Aquasia is a relaxing oasis that places emphasis on an individualized experience and exceptional service.
The pamper session begins with one of Aquasia’s skilled therapists giving you a 30 minute neck, back and shoulder massage designed to transport you to a state of sheer, uninhibited, undiluted glee. This is followed by a 30 minute facial, utilizing products that best compliment your particular skin type. To extend your stay in your happy place, you get 20% off your next treatment.
Once you return to the real world, you should clean the coffee you spilt on your desk and call Carol back. It’s rather urgent.

Investigations into the phenomenon revealed that the tap-dancing facial is just a clever front, for circus freaks to get their medical aids to pay for facial reconstruction.
