Did you know?
The village of Dullstroom was originally called 'Dull's-stroom' (Dull's stream), when it was originally proclaimed a town by Paul Kruger in 1892.
The Vygenhoek Organic Spa is situated in Dullstroom, a village known more for its fly-fishing dams, quaint shops and country restaurants than for its health and beauty offerings.
Vygenhoek sets itself apart from the competition as the owners have really taken the concept of being fully 'organic' to heart. The spa was conceptualised around 'holistic wellness' and provides a range of treatments that steer away from the synthetic and embrace the natural.
This Dullstroom spa, is known for its very simple, yet focused philosophy, and while the words 'organic' are bandied about with wild abandon these days, at Vygenhoek you can be guaranteed that only the best natural products are used in treatments. Therapies include hydrotherapies that utilise the healing power of water.
The balneotherapy is a popular treatment in which mineralised thermal waters help to restore and rejuvenate. There are a number of seaweed and algae wraps available as well as herbal rubs and body polishing treatments using sugar and organic Arabica coffee beans.
At this Dullstroom spa you'll also find a variety of massages including shiatsu, Swedish, and a unique bamboo massage which uses various bamboo sticks to assist in drainage and relaxation.
In terms of beauty treatments there are several good skin treatments available including the Vygenhoek warm honey express facial. On the more spiritual side of things reiki and reflexology are also on the menu and there's a meditation garden with beautiful views, if you need further inspiration. A fun aspect to this spa is that there are also treatments available for children between the ages of three and 12.
