Tomorrow is the 1st day of August and also the month in which we celebrate Women’s Day!


This day is not just another public holiday, it’s an opportunity to pay reverence to the South African women who stood together to fight against laws that not only affected women in South Africa, but all people of colour.

On the 9th of August 1956, 20 000 women from all over the country took to the streets in one of the biggest demonstrations in our county’s history, in protest against Pass laws for women.

The march was described as one of the most disciplined, dignified and emotional demonstrations the country had ever seen. They made a unanimous decision that if the police tried to stop them, every woman would go down onto her knees to pray, and that if one was arrested, they would all be arrested in the name of solidarity.

The women sang Nkosi Sikeleli Afrika at the very end of their courageous protest before walking away peacefully, and perhaps with the knowing that they had just made history.

Women’s Day gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to all the women who have stood up against an unjust society, paving the way for the freedom of future generations.

And remember: You strike a woman. You strike a rock

Remember though, that for you to be the rock, you need to make self-care your priority and yes, self-care can be a bubble bath. But it is also putting in healthy boundaries, living in gratitude, and truly living and being your authentic self.

As we are going into our last month of winter, even though this year it wasn’t too cold, it is time to get ready to bloom. We are adding some new menu items that include Soaring Free Superfood smoothies and a few new hot drinks that have some amazing ingredients including Reishi mushroom and Lion’s Mane. We will also be stocking most of their products in our retail section.

Come and celebrate Women’s Day with us – Book any two 60min massages and lunch on Tuesday the 9th of August 2022 and receive a complimentary bottle of Jakkalsvlei Moscato Sparkling wine valued at R450 a bottle. I visited this winery earlier this month and absolutely loved their Moscato. It’s great as a spritzer too!

Have a lovely August – this month’s promotion is a discount on any of our Full-day Experiences. 

Love, Tania
