Wellness with Rioma

Health is Ultimate Wealth

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.

Winter  Colour Nail Trends

BRRRRR, it is cold outside, but nail trends are heating up this season! Various hues inspired by the change in the season and the range of winter must haves in your wardrobe. Your favourite maroon knit cardigan can now match your stunning new manicure.

There is something for everyone, for those that like to be a bit daring, with details of glitter, autumn leaf designs or multicolour nails. To the more demure lady, who prefers solid colours of maroon or beige, why not choose a matt colour instead of gloss? Whichever version of this latest trend you fall in love with, be sure you will make a statement this season.

Amber, orange, brown, beige, maroon, reds, mustard, nude so many colours to inspire you for your next nail appointment. Which one is your favourite?

How a Spa Day can help get you that job

If you thought being well groomed was old fashioned and  no one cares anymore, think again…

The old saying of first impressions really count is true, before you have even opened your mouth or finished your sentence, the person you have just met is weighing you up.

Unfortunately society is still very superficial, and we can’t help but notice your chipped nails while you sit across the table from us. When you look unkempt the subconscious mind has already judged you. An untidy outer appearance may give the impression you are sloppy with your work. If attention to detail is important for your role, then paying attention to how you look will play a role in how you are perceived.

Have you ever thought about asking before an interview if the company you are going to has a uniform policy? Do they dress very formal or ‘Harry casual’? It’s important to dress the part, and for them to see you as someone that could fit in with the team.

We might not all look like Beyoncé, but when you exude confidence you radiate and your true beauty will shine. The feeling of just having your nails done can send you on a little euphoric high and your strut might just have a little more pep in your step.

If you are going to a special interview or lined up a meeting with your boss to talk increases, why not book a day at the spa over the weekend and make sure you are looking and feeling golden!

When you look good you feel good.
