Beauty & Fashion



Some of the ways of relieving stress and anxiety include laughing more, participating in physical exercise, focusing on breathing and meditation and spoiling yourself to a spa treatment. This is one of the most effective stress relievers and only requires an hour or two out of your day, week or month.

With day-to-day stresses of deadlines, traffic and price increases, its important to be able to find a healthy balance in your everyday life. Stress has become a part of life that we need to manage to avoid it impacting on our health, productivity and overall wellbeing.

Some of the benefits of spa treatments include:

  • Being able to disconnect from work, family and friends
  • Allowing the body to slow down and regenerate
  • Improved blood circulation, sending more oxygen and nutrients through the body and cells
  • Lymphatic system stimulation, ridding the body of toxins
  • The release of serotonin, enhancing the feel-good factor
  • Chronic pain relief, such as arthritis and muscle pains/cramps


Today, many day spas offer pioneering research into nutrition, mindfulness and wellbeing, from the nourishing treats experienced during luxury spa breaks to the bespoke plans provided on health retreats. So, it’s worthwhile to give yourself a spa spoil every once in a while. Durban offers many affordable day spa’s that are luxurious, affordable and located in tranquil areas.
