As water bubbles up from the earth, it passes through several layers of rock, giving it a rich and varied minereal content. The heated water and minerals together act as a catalyst to the healing process. Important to our health, minerals are found in body tissues and fluids, working in combination with enzymes, hormones and vitamins. Minerals are also active in nerve transmission, muscle contraction, cell permeability, tissue structure and rigidity, blood formation, fluid regulation, and energy production. Mineral baths are believed to improve conditions related to arthritis and inflammation of the joints, plus circulatory, nasal and respiratory problems. They also relax the body, soften the skin, and soothe the spirit.
Health spas and Rehabilitation Therapy
Recover from the daily grind at one of the finest rehabilitation therapy centres in the country. Relax and surrender to your personal guide, in a few hours you’ll forget why you came there in the first place.
Facials, massages, mud treatments, stress therapy, yoga, reflexology…now doesn’t that sound good? Most of the health spas offer accommodation, or just visit for the day, but a weekend stay is recommended as there are tons of really purposeful therapies available to you including sleep therapy and nutritional advice. Romantic Spa getaways for couples are another fantastic way to connect and rejuvenate.

People are saying Plettenberg Bay, close to Cape Town, is the beach to go to if you want to hang out with some dolphins. They are extremely energetic beings surfing, rolling and jumping through the waves. Those bottle-nosed cuties can be seen all-year round and they swim up pretty close to the shore. Dolphin therapy has become a vastly popular therapy for relaxation and rejuvenation.
