The treatments at Taj Cape Town’s award-winning Jiva Spa are based on ancient Indian holistic, healing traditions that focus on realigning body, mind and soul and reinstating your natural balance. The luxurious spa’s current special is perfect for this. For 30 minutes each, you can focus on three different parts of your body, and it will thank you, from head to toe.

BEGIN WITH A HEAD MASSAGE
There are so many benefits to this heavenly Indian head massage, in which the therapist massages acupressure points on the head. Firstly, it releases accumulated muscular tension, and secondly, the massage promotes hair growth as the massage stimulates blood flow to the scalp while the blend of herbs and oils used stimulates growth.

YOU CAN CHOOSE THREE TREATMENTS
From the head, you can work your way down your body. Besides the head massage, six other treatments are part of the Jiva Spa Special: A Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage, a Full Body Scrub, an Introductory Facial, an Express Manicure or Pedicure and, an absolute treat, the Deluxe Foot Massage. You can pick any three of these, then give yourself over to the therapist’s expert hands.

TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE DEAL
Jiva Spa therapists suggest that you’ll get the most out of a treatment by setting up your body to get the full benefit. You can warm up your muscles so your body is relaxed and receptive. This special includes complimentary use of the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi or heated pool, or just get into the zone and relax in the Vishram lounge with a choice of teas, which are served in oven-baked teapots and bowls.
