Everybody reacts to stress in a different way. Some put hands to food to mouth, some push knuckles through punching bags and some react with a trip to the bar where they exhibit involuntary hip jerking movements to a song implying that hips indeed do not lie. There are of course less embarrassing ways to relieve your body of tension. Take a load off with today’s Groupon: a full body massage, 30-minute hand, foot, neck and shoulder massage and 30-minute relaxation with tea and a muffin for R365 at Hands on Retreat.
Dead set in the heart of Mother Nature, Hands on Retreat Guesthouse and Spa is a charming escape from modern-day tensions, perfectly set on the banks of a free-flowing river. Shrouded by an abundance of lush plant life, the setting evokes a tranquil ambiance, egged on by the soothing sounds of nature. Once your foot pushes down on the green grassy landscape, soothing sensations will instantly overcome you, gently easing your vessel and urging you to put your feet up for pampering perfection.
Perfection comes in the form of two indulgent treatments and 30 minutes of me-time with tea and a muffin to wind down. Concealing more than just themselves from the concrete jungle, Hands on Retreat also holds a skilled set of stress-relieving experts who could easily relieve tension from a horror movie. However, body parts on the pamper menu include hands, feet, neck, and shoulders, and a full body massage ensures you’re nimble for your next encounter with the jukebox. Involuntary hip jerking movements no more; the next time you set foot on the dance-floor you’ll be executing the movements of a calm and limber disco-dancing lemur.
Massage Fact: Granny Muffin’s House, a discontinued line of shampoo, was
also a producer of robotic masseuses. The line was also discontinued after one
robot discovered how to overwrite Assimoov’s Four Laws of Robotics, putting clients
in great danger. No one was harmed, but someone misplaced a pencil sharpener
which led to the breakdown of all machinery needed to manufacture the shampoos.
