Stones are often portrayed as evil lumps of nothingness: In Afrikaans you “rol ‘n klip uit iemand se pad” meaning to take a burden off their shoulders, people have cold hearts of stone and two poor birds are brutally slaughtered by a stone. Today’s deal restores the reputation of stones within 45 minutes. See the stone from a different angle with a 45 minute hot stone back, neck and shoulder massage and an Indian head massage for R75 at Kocamoya Day Spa.
For those who have been living under a rock, hot stone therapy is the therapy when it comes to total relaxation of body, mind and easing the tension caused by that massive rock you’ve been sitting under. These wonderfully smooth lava lumps of wonder are heated and placed on key areas of the body to instil calmness and relax tightly wound muscles. Throw in an Indian head massage and you’re in for a melted butter-like treatment.
Located in Durban North, Kocamoya Day Spa is a spacious yet warm and inviting space, conveniently located for both quick pick-me-up sessions and long switch-off-and-let-go treatments. With 15 years’ experience and 40 fully flexible fingers between the four of them, the therapists go to extreme lengths to make you feel as pampered and happy as a field mouse in a cheese factory. While swooning under the warm weight of the rocks and the massaging movements of the therapist’s hands, feel free to hum along to the calm music. However don’t expect to get more than an ‘ah’ out of your numbly relaxed body.
Stone fact: In 1923 a citizen of Cluttsville, Alabama found a stone shaped like a cordless phone with a nose, in his backyard. This discovery had the town in uproar. The mayor christened the stone Harvey, announced the day of discovery a public holiday and had Harvey stamps printed. Harvey can now be seen displayed in a glass jam jar in Cluttsville’s shop.
