Heated Stone Massage at Cayenne Spa (Pepper Club Hotel)

Making my way from the luxurious Pepper Club reception area up to the Cayenne Spa, I was greeted by the lovely Rezette who would be giving me my treatment that afternoon. I had heard of the Hot Stone massage technique before and was curious to try it out. We discussed any back tension I may be experiencing and I was assured that the stones would not be hot enough to burn my skin (as I had feared).

Lights dim and gentle music cascading, I lay on the massage table, slightly apprehensive of what was to come. A number of stones were soon placed on my spine, their warmth and weight lending a pleasant sensation. As Rezette began a deep tissue massage, I caught a scent of pepper and raspberry – both essential oils that help enhance circulation.

Muscles relaxing and toxins releasing, I was soon transported to a place of no thoughts, only sensory joy. Time seemed to slow down, and I could feel all the stress of the last few months just melting away: bliss. When the massage was over I was treated to a glass of cool water, a strawberry added for a sweet fresh taste.

I would definitely do this again!

A Heated Stone Massage at Cayenne Spa will cost you R610 and take 75 minutes, although it is suggested you arrive 15 minutes before your treatment to complete the consultation form.
