You will lay down on a marble slab covered with a cushioned towel, whilst your therapist exfoliates every inch of your skin, before submerging you below the gentle spray of the Vichy Shower (A Vichy shower is a metal arm with five to seven shower heads, that runs parallel to a cushioned treatment table, enabling you to shower while lying down).
Next on the journey is the steam room for 15 minutes, followed by a rinse off under a shower. At the dual foot bath, one bath is filled with ice-cold water, while the other is comfortably hot. You alternate your feet between the two, whilst getting a back, neck and shoulder massage. This is known as Kneipp therapy, which improves circulation. Afterwards, you alternate between the dry heat of the sauna, and a very gentle, cooling, scented mist. The dry heat induces perspiration and assists to rid the body of toxins. The view from the sauna looks out over Sandton.
Following on from this, you enter the Sensation shower, surrounded by jets of water, which start off cold, but heat up, with different massage and pressure settings. Your Journey ends with you lying on your back in one of the massage treatment rooms, whilst your therapist applies moisturiser in rhythmic movements to your arms, legs, back and stomach. Leaving the skin radiant and soft to touch.
