Things I like more than a massage. Oh, that’s right, nothing! Especially when the pamper sesh is at Woodlands Spa. I. Can. Not. Rave. Enough. And frankly, I’m not even going to bother trying to contain my enthusiasm. Summed up, it’s one of those places that when mentioned causes an involuntary squeal of delight. If you’re in an open plan office, read the next sentence with caution (it’s that darn exciting). I’m giving away a full body massages to two lucky Darlings - and you even get to take a plus one! Cue the squeals… 

Nothing can cause a knot or five like the schlep of driving for hours on end just so that you can get away from it all. Which is why I was chuffed to discover that Woodlands Spa is only about a 40-minute drive from Sandton. Set on the banks of the Crocodile River, in Muldersdrift in the Cradle of Humankind, this is the place to go if you’re looking for a little R&R. I love that the architecture has been designed in such a way that it makes the most of the lush grounds and tranquil river.

First up we had a breath work session – this involves lying on yoga mats while Dr Ela instructed us how to use different techniques for about 30 minutes. You’re supposed to completely let go and only focus on your breathing – this may sounds easy, but it’s actually a massive challenge. Dr Ela explained that if you practice this often there are physical and emotional benefits. These breathing techniques help to increase the oxygen in your body - this can help with everything from regulating your blood pressure and insomnia, to burnout.  It will also give you the know-how to channel your emotions. While I have never tried anything like this before, I definitely left feeling a helluvu lot calmer and I have every intention of using this in future.

My favourite part about my experience was the full body massage - so serene, so soothing, so satisfying. I dare you to try and stay awake – I couldn’t! One hour later I was woken up by the therapist and my body felt fantastic and supple - and she has expertly worked out every single knot. No easy feat.

Cindy Cousin I'm in awe with the pictures of Woodlands Spa. What a magical treat it could be..... Being a single mommy of a 4 year old darling daughter - I would love to be able to have some pamper time with one of my friends. My body is a constant ache but for the love of my daughter - it's all worthwhile. A little stress relief would certainly pick me up and rejuvenate my energy to spend with my darling...
