Did you know?
Many spas recommend not sunbathing for a minimum of 12 hours before or after any spa treatment.
The Cradle Health Spa and Medical Centre serves up peace of mind with its pampering.
This unique spa in South Africa counter-balances the discomfort of seeing a doctor for a full medical or gynaecological examination with its welcoming atmosphere and range of alternative health and beauty treatments. Their philosophy fuses modern and complementary healing practices for a wholistic wellness experience.
While offering the practicality of a modern medical practice, the spa creates a space where you can reconnect your senses and bring your body and mind back into harmony. You can combine a full medical check-up with a soothing massage or a signature facial that will leave you feeling like a new person.
The Cradle Health Spa and Medical Centre also offers physiotherapy, sports massage and the services of a biokineticist. Guests can also make use of the steam room, swimming pool and jacuzzi or relax at the spa café or in one of the outdoor recreation areas.
The centre also has an ‘aesthetic health’ department that offers high-tech, injectable cosmetic treatments like botox and fillers. These are fast becoming one of the most popular treatments for patients wanting to look instantly younger with minimal fuss.
In addition the spa’s uniquely formulated Cradle Health Beauty and Body Care product range uses ozonated oils, which carry extra oxygen, which they believe makes them especially penetrating and healing.
The Cradle Health Spa caters also for businesses that want to take a proactive approach to their employees' health and overall well-being, offering corporate packages, a conference venue and wellness training.
The spa has also started a community therapist programme, where they employ and train women from the local area. The women work closely with certified therapists and are taught the basics of massage and beauty therapy.
You will leave this South African spa with a renewed sense of overall well-being, underpinned by the security of modern and preventative medicine.
