Out of all the world’s mischievous monkeys, the Stress Monkey is the least popular. Reputed to perch on people’s shoulders and shoot up their stress levels by whispering niggling nasties in their ears, there’s only one way to beat off this belligerent bozo and that’s with today’s Groupon: a half day spa package for two people, including a light lunch for R649.
Indigenous to scholars, the working world and ice-road truckers, the Stress Monkey is a universal pest with only one overwhelming weakness: your ultimate relaxation. That’s why Summerview Spa is inviting you and your fortunate friend to surrender yourself into the healing hands of their professional therapists. Take a load off and enjoy an Indian head and back massage, a full body exfoliation including a foot and hand massage and a skin care facial.
Because heads always feel a little left out when it comes to pampering, Summerview Spa is offering you a stress-relieving Indian head massage. The age-old treatment includes a scalp, shoulder and facial massage which is said to unblock congested energy flows, releasing pent-up negative energy and encouraging stress-release. Add a regular back massage and you’re on your way to becoming a full-time resident of ultimate relaxation.
Once your muscles are as relaxed as a house-cat in a sunny spot, it’s time to enjoy a full body exfoliation. Shed your winter woes along with your winter skin with a gentle exfoliation that banishes dead skin cells and moisturises your defiant dermis, leaving you with radiant skin tone and a softness that’s usually reserved for new-born squirrels.
Now that you’re approaching total tranquillity, you’ve already created a huge dent in the stress monkey’s devious plans – why stop now? Whether your skin is dehydrated, unenthusiastic or just bored; your skin will respond to the revitalising skin care facial like it would a surprise air-balloon ride – with glee and gratitude. Consisting of a skin cleanse, exfoliation and deep moisturising treatment, this treatment will put the radiant glow back into your cranium coating – and your smile. Finally, end your perfect day off with a stimulating hand and foot massage; a deliciously divine treatment that opens the energy channels and improves overall circulation.
Now that you’ve activated the stress monkey’s one and only kryptonite; wave goodbye to that bothersome bugger (good riddance) and emerge from Summerview Spa with a spring in your step and a smile on your dial.
Beauty fact: In the sci-fi film, Peacock women from outer-space, the main character receives a pedicure that turns her feet into a golden chalice. This is said to be the inspiration behind the invention of gold nail polish.
