One of the world’s leading boutique hotels, The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa in Johannesburg unveiled ground-breaking new spa treatments and an innovative new offering that allows hotel guests to try new virtual fitness and wellness classes from the comfort of their own suites. Each guest of the hotel’s Spa begins their treatment with a bespoke mindfulness journey which is guided by their Saxon Spa therapist.
The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa introduces the Bellabaci Massage, a treatment based around a silicone cupping technique to help in drainage and detoxifying the body. Silicone Bellabaci cups are flexible and the therapist can move them over areas of pain and tension. The Saxon Spa’s Bellabaci Massage combines the techniques of Swedish and deep tissue massage to ease pain and detoxify the body.
The Digital Detox Journey allows guests to reconnect with themselves through a massage focusing on those stress points brought on by the use of technology. The treatment begins with sealing guests’ digital devices in a technology bag and follows by a full-body exfoliation and a massage combining Bellabaci cupping and deep tissue techniques, to release tension stemming from digital strain. A spa therapist will guide the guest through ways in which to extend the Digital Detox Journey into their everyday lives.
The unique new offering, Sleep Therapy, takes place on a dry flotation bed, where programmed chromotherapy lighting will help to go into a deep restful sleep. This 30-minute sleep therapy treatment is the equivalent of four hours of undisturbed sleep.
The Saxon Spa Juice Bar serves spa signature smoothies and juices with the option to add collagen that increases protein content and adds in amino acids. Collagen-infused drinks improve skin elasticity, assists in smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles as well as strengthening hair, nails, and teeth. The Spa also offers guests VitaJuwel water, based on age-old traditions of vitalizing water with gemstones. This water has plenty of benefits, such as healing properties, rejuvenation and support of the body, spirit, and mind, improved energy and well-being, as well as decreasing anxiety.
In partnership with Earth + Sky the hotel offers virtual fitness and wellness classes for guests to use in the privacy of their suites. The fitness and wellness classes are presented by famous instructors in prestigious locations, such as a Barre de Ballet class presented from the Royal Opera House in London by Royal Ballet Soloist Fernando Montano, or an Upper Body Calisthenics class presented by Ultra Marathon Runner Ben Harrison.
