Celebrating the love of those who always have your back – no matter what!

This month of LOVE we have something for everyone here at Woodlands Healing Spa, whether you are single or in love! 

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but have you heard of Galentine’s Day?

They ask: what do you look for in a romantic partner?
I answer: what do you look for in yourself?

You can buy your own flowers – or a spa day for that matter!

You’ve no doubt heard the song Flowers, or at least the impact it’s had on women. Miley Cyrus has created the latest female anthem.  Empowering us to realise our own power and our intrinsic strength.

Being single is no longer a shameful thing, in fact, women are choosing it over marriage and relationships. Instead of “single” as a status… I prefer “Independently Owned and Operated” haha

But, as the saying goes, it takes a village – this is where women are strong.  Our friends provide the love and support that could often be sought in a relationship.  Too many women (and men) stay in unhealthy relationships because they’re too scared of loneliness.

So this year, instead of only celebrating the love of a partner, we’ve decided that we need to celebrate the ladies in our lives as well, our inner circle.  Those who protect us, make us laugh when we’re sad, and who may even dispose of a body if we ask (ok, not the last one…)

Cosmo published an article on the idea of Galentine’s Day, so we are following suit and celebrating our female friends – those who are our fiercest supporters, our cheerleaders, and part-time (unpaid) therapists.

So, instead of having an anti-Valentine’s Day party, celebrate Galantine’s Day with our amazing promotion.

Book our Heal package for a group of 4 or more girls and only pay R900pp – a massive saving of R240pp.

Heal (half day)3.0hrs Restore and Heal with a 90min full body hot stone massage, followed by a spa manicure or spa pedicure (excludes paint). Enjoy a light lunch on the deck overlooking the river. Includes 30min Hydro (subject to loadshedding schedule) Included is a glass of Jakkalsvlei Moscato and a free gift from The Box Fashion!

As we all know, Eskom may or may not supply us with electricity #DownWithLoadshedding!  So, if there happens to be loadshedding during your Galentine’s Day celebration, your hot stone massage will be replaced with a Swedish massage.


What does real self-love look like? What is a meaningful love affair with “the self,” and why is pursuing it the most radical act of love there is?

Self-love is a complex network of self-assuredness and trust, forgiveness and showing up for yourself every day. Choosing to take care of yourself is a powerful statement to make, boundaries can feel like tough love, but the reality is we are redefining ourselves by what we are not willing to accept. You must be strong, and you have to be courageous. To surrender to self-love is to practice it every day to build confidence and self-worth. Why not join our Let’s Talk Love Workshop this month? Where you will discover your love language and how to open your heart chakra to give or receive love – even from yourself!

Every month from Feb till August we will be running a different chakra workshop to cover them all.

February we will start with the heart chakra as it is the month of love after all.

And don’t worry couples, we haven’t forgotten about you – Single and bitter are not the same thing. I may not have a man in my life right now, but that doesn’t mean I hate people who are in relationships! It’s quite the opposite — I think it’s wonderful to witness true love in action. They give me hope and I live vicariously through them. There’s something magical about getting a glimpse into the world of two people who truly and wholly adore each other no matter what. I have had that feeling at times and I hope to have it again with the right person. I don’t know when that will happen, but for now, I’m content to revel in the good fortunes of those who’ve found it.

So why not spoil your loved one with our Valentine’s Couple’s promotion?

And in the spirit of the month of love, we will be running two other promotions as well – Lamelle Essentials which we are launching this month, and our waxing promo! – Scroll down for all.
