I tend to be quite grumpy a lot of the time, because working behind a computer for most of the day results in quite a bit of back and neck pain. That being said, it feels quite ... extravagent ... to book myself in for a full body massage. So when I heard that Body Therapy offers either 30 min or 45 min back and neck massages, it seemed like a good compromise!

There are actually two Body Therapy salons from which to choose in Joburg – at The Wedge Shopping Centre in Morningside and Lifestyle Garden Centre in Randpark Ridge. I chose to try the one at The Wedge, as it’s a shopping centre that I haven’t fully explored, and this gave me the perfect excuse.

On arrival, I filled out the required questionnaire so that my therapist would know what problems she should be aware of. I was then led through to a dressing room where I could change into a white toweling robe and slippers. The salon is quite small and intimate, as opposed to many day spas where you can actually feel quite lost. This felt ideal for a bit of pampering but with none of the frills that drive the prices up!

The room was warm and lit with candles, with soft gentle music playing in the background. I have to admit that I actually did not miss the full body massage experience at all, as I always enjoy the back and neck massage the most – so it makes perfect sense to invest in that bit. It’s also a lot cheaper – R210 for a 30 min massage and R280 for a 45 min massage!

I left feeling completely relaxed and determined to go back more regularly. I would far rather spend money on getting rid of neck pain and tension and sacrifice a dinner out somewhere to help pay for it. It was so nice to be pampered and to have that time to just unwind – and the range of services on offer is fantastic. Well worth looking at their treatment menu (see website link below) and their very reasonable prices.
