The “Amandla”, which means “power” in Xhosa and Zulu, is one of our most popular treatments. You may be asking what makes it such a powerful treatment?
The one-and-a-half hour session begins in our Wet Room with a nimble Body Brush, which tones your skin, sloughs off dead skin cells and stimulates lymph drainage and circulation. The vigorous Body Exfoliation, using a mixture of sea salt and Rooibos extract follows, leaving the skin tingling and glowing.
Rooibos (Asplanathus linearis) is a legume, which is endemic to the South African fynbos biome. Its growth is confined to a very small area of the Cedarberg, Western Cape. Rooibos is known as a healing plant, a property discovered by the 17th century European travellers. Rich in powerful antioxidants which help assist in the destruction of free radicals, help boost the immune system and contribute to a slowing of the ageing process; recent research also suggests that Rooibos is beneficial when applied topically, as it contains high levels of alpha hydroxyl acid, zinc and super oxide dismutase.
The Sea Salt and Rooibos scrub gives a tingling sensation to your body. Your skin is then cleansed under our invigorating shower jets. Immaculately clean, you are now ready for your full-body massage in the Massage Room. The massage style used is vigorous and energising, incorporating a â€œhigh-noteâ€ essential oil and deep-tissue techniques concentrating on any problem areas which may need remedial attention.
Emerge refreshed, invigorated and relaxed! Just what you needed!
