Health is Ultimate Wealth

Spa Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Yikes! Its that time of the year again, where we get to spoil our loved ones. Gifting can be difficult, especially when a person seems to have everything they need. Sometimes the best gift is that of time and experience. What do we mean by that?

We let you in on two ways to take advantage of the wonderful packages at La Vita Spas.

Time: you are also an important part of gifting, sometimes the one you love just wants to spend more quality time with you. Set the tone and give them something extra. Here is our idea:

Couples Paradise Spa Day (3 Hr 50 min)

This perfect package includes the following treatments; Roman Royalty Swedish Massage, Ultimate Anti-aging facial, foot exfoliation and foot massage and an Indian Head massage – could you ask for anything more?

 

Bonus tip: why not include a lunch or night out included? 

Experience: Not every gift has to be something the one you love unwraps. An experience can have a bigger impact and show that you have really thought about the individual. Here is our idea of how to make the best experience:

The Ultimate Indulgence Package (5 Hr 50 min)

Whether it’s for him or her, this package is the ultimate indulgence, and here’s why; Majestic Milanese Facial, Hotstone full body massage, Indian Head Massage, Spa Paraffin Manicure, Spa Paraffin Pedicure and foot massage. They will never want to leave the spa after this indulgence.

Bonus tip: arrange for them to have a shopping voucher after their treatment, to spoil themselves on some of the items available to purchase at La Vita Spa’s – from perfume, jewellery, bags and products, they will then have a little something to remember the day by.

The Bright Side of Life

Really? Where has this year gone? It was winter just yesterday!!! Now we are already gearing up for the festive season.

Don’t let your nails be left out in the cold… and keep up with the latest summer trends in colour and designs.

From pastels to brights – the colour wheel is bursting with vibrance this summer! Don’t be shy to explore a more daring shade. Coordinate with your sunglasses or sandals.

If you travelling in December, why not get your nails done before your trip? Or even better while on holiday? Spoil yourself with a spa treatment and get your nails done too! You will feel so relaxed and really get to appreciate the “me” time you will have.

To help you decide on the right trend for you, we browsed through Pinterest for the best of the best. Let us know if you like any – or which one you would choose.

15 Years of Wellness

This November La Vita Spa celebrates its 15th birthday, a super achievement for this blossoming company. One of the largest spa chains in South Africa, specialising in providing the best wellness offering to the hospitality industry. Their spa’s can be found at some of the best resorts around the country, from Club Mykonos on the west coast, to Magalies Park in the North West Province.

For me, one of their greatest achievements – is not all the amazing treatments they provide. But the upliftment and jobs created for many young ladies across our country. The therapists that join La Vita, are put through extensive training, that does not just stop at employment, but workshops and continued support are given throughout their time with La Vita. Many of the ladies have worked up from therapist to manager to regional manager.

Your Best Summer Skin

Are you ready for summer?

Even if you are not – your skin is working overtime to adjust to the change in climate. Here in South Africa, we have a varied summer, from dry heat to hot and humid, each contributing to a different way our skin reacts.

If you have an oily to combination skin, you might find the humid weather plays havoc on your already shiny situation. Those with dry complexion will battle more in the more arid parts of the country. It is good to know your skin type and how to work with what you have, season by season.

A good skin care routine that is consistent will help you achieve the right glow this summer.

Have you considered a facial, it’s a great way to rejuvenate your complexion? La Vita Spa offers an array of treatments, from those that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines to a non-invasive facelift. Say goodbye to the winter blues by having a Majestic Milanese Facial, which cleanses and gently exfoliates the skin.

A good tip to remember over summer it to exfoliate once a week, this assists with removing dead skin cells. Find a sunscreen that also works for your skin type, some are oil-free or more focused on moisturising the skin.

You can do it for Yourself!

Sisters… are doing it for themselves….

Yes we are!

Gone are the days we have to wait to be treated or wait for someone to gift us a spa experience. I don’t know about you, but I drop the hints to my partner all the time… ohh my back…. my shoulders are so stiff – in hope that he might surprise me with a spa day.

Don’t wait!

You are a strong independent woman, there is no need to wait. Here are our top 2 picks we think you need to treat yourself to:

Mona Lisa Facial and Massage

What you get:  Refreshment as well as your own take home Salon size Professional Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer.

LUXURY CLASSIC SOOTHING FACIAL – A full hour of pampering includes deep cleansing, steaming, exfoliation and softening of the skin, extraction of black and white heads. A hand and foot massage is included. This facial is suitable for all skin types and ages and is great for men.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE – An ancient Indian form of massage for face, head, neck and shoulders. This technique is used widely for relieving tension headaches and daily pressure. Working on specific pressure points you are sure to feel energized and revitalized

Sunset Top-to-Toe Package

A top-to-toe unique blend to embrace the afternoon whilst enjoying refreshments.

HOT STONE FULL BODY MASSAGE – Experience the ultimate relaxation. Incorporating smooth heated basalt stones to promote a sedative and re-energizing response. The luxury of touch, combined with the warm stones, melts away stress and tension. Extremely relaxing and therapeutic.

SUPER EXTRACTION – This dramatic facial includes deep cleansing, exfoliation and steaming to soften and release blockages. Specialized extraction ensures that all pores are unblocked followed by a soothing facial massage and mask, resulting in radiant skin.

VENETIAN HANDS & FEET – A well groomed appearance is becoming increasingly important. Enhance your hands and feet with gentle exfoliation leaving the skin delectably soft and supple. This is followed by cuticle care and pressure point massage to conclude this uplifting experience.

Connect Again

Do you find that reconnecting with your loved one is becoming increasingly difficult in our fast pace life. We live in a world of technology, technology that is meant to bring us together and not pull us apart, instead, we spend so much screen time, chatting to people out of our homes, and we forget to focus on who is in the room with us.

You might be bringing your work home with you each night, and therefore, all your concentration goes towards reaching your deadlines and not checking in your emotional relationships.

Pencilling in time for your partner is a great idea, physically and mentally putting a date in time in your diary to make them a priority.

This past week, I did a little eek and half jumped off my seat, when I saw the latest night out for couples or friends at the La Vita Spa at the Palace. They have put together this amazing package, like no jokes… amazing…. with huge value for money.

Their Superb Spa & Dine Experience is only offered at the Palace in Durban for now, so if you live close by, I would really take advantage of this, or if you plan to visit for a vacation, at only R1450 per couple.

What you get:

Treatments x 3 each

  • Rejuvenating Foot Exfoliation & Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Swedish Full Body Massage

Includes a 3 course dinner, red or white wine, soft drink, coffee and tea. To see the full menu, go here.

The Palace is a sophisticated venue, overlooking the glittering Durban promenade, this is certainly a space where you can truly relax and rekindle with your loved one. I highly suggest booking to stay the night or two or three, as you certainly won’t want to get in your car and drive away after this night. Wake up and have breakfast and watch the sunrise over the east coast.
