GO HEALTHY ON A KENYA SAFARI
|The yearning for a balance between work, personal time and quality time with family and friends is a perpetual need within today’s society. |
One of the best ways to counteract the residual effects of “life in the fast lane” is to reconnect and rejuvenate by embracing a soothing tranquility to refresh the mind, body and soul.
Kenya’s Health tourism, specifically health spas, are gaining ground with properties investing in high quality and professional facilities with a variety of services.
One such special place that provides the soothing tranquility is the Aromatics Spa (The Wellness Center) in Nairobi which offers a fully fledged health package where you can truly unwind, distress and detoxify.
The ambience, the low musical sounds echoing through the rooms, the fragrance of the oil gives you a sense of pure tranquility.
At Aromatics Spa one of their specialties is “Liquid Tranquility” or hydro massage. In this process, three factors are at work – heat, buoyancy and massage. Together they create a soothing experience.
Immersion in hot water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, increasing circulation. The buoyancy of water reduces body weight by nearly 90% to relieve pressure on the joints and muscles creating a relaxing sensation of weightlessness.
The massaging action is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air through jet nozzles. This energized stream of warm water loosens tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers – naturally unwinding the individual from the complexities of everyday life.
At the Aromatic Spa one is spoilt for choice, with a range of therapy, and different forms of treatments you are sure to leave completely relaxed. In addition, there is a fully-fledged Hair Salon, Skin Care clinic and a Restaurant to enhance the whole experience. It’s a retreat that leaves you feeling mentally and emotionally refreshed.
Kenya’s South Coast, New haven of bliss
The coast of Kenya, known for its powder-white sandy beaches boasts some of the finest spas and fitness centers in the country. Once such spot is the Uzuri Spa and Fitness Forest at Leopard Beach Resort & Spa, a sanctuary for those seeking tranquility and rejuvenation.
With the current drive for more up-market clientele and diversified products this is yet another step by the Leopard's to cater for an ever increasing demand in the fast growing leisure market.
The soothing musical sounds, interfused with intoxicating oil aromas and the appeasing ambience of the treatment rooms, give a sense of pure serenity even before you get to experience the magical touch of relaxation from the experienced, caring staff.
With an array of comprehensive treatments for both men and women, one is spoiled for choice. Be it a Theravine anti-ageing facial, hydrotherapy, a body wrap, waxing, or even the Uzuri Spa TheraNaka signature wood massage, all the forms of treatments will leave you completely relaxed.
The spa offers a good mixture of international experts as well as local therapists thereby interfacing international and local standards giving them a unique strength as trendsetter in the local industry.
The spa has a fully equipped health and fitness gym and depending on your preference, you have at your disposal, a steam bath and sauna that will help you sweat out all the toxins from your body. In addition, the Spa's "Matunda bar" offers a variety of fresh juices, smoothies and a selection of healthy salads and light meals, and an exclusive poolside that has an integrated Jacuzzi.
