Maun what’s the hype

Talking time out @ Coup Dee Touch Spa

Day Spas are no longer a luxury nor a thing for women. With all the stress of the modern rat race we all need to take time off once in a while and book ourselves in for a day spa even if it is just for an hour. Spa – an establishment contributing to people’s wellness in an environment conducive to relaxation, offering as the main activity one or more forms of water therapy and one or several types of professional treatments, at least including massage therapy, offered in two or more treatment rooms and comprising a relaxation area reserved for this purpose. – * * Definition from the BNQ SPA Standard.  We live in a world where we are always striving to tick the to do lists, thinking about the next thing to do. We hardly take time off and relax and enjoy just being. Stress is a word common in our daily conversations and if we do not address it in time it affects our health negatively. 

I had a pleasure of being invited to take time off from taking care of others and be taken care of by Coup Dee Touch Spa. Ambience is everything when it comes to a Spa value add, and they did not do badly at all. The place is located behind Maun lodge in a residential plot of its owner Mrs Boitumelo Mapila. The first thing that calm you are the huge palm trees in the garden and the Thatched Swiss inspired building designs. Every client always wants to feel special and that is what you get when you visit the small intimate spa. Their service is at par with those of cities despite the fact that they are in a village. The service starts even before you arrive; they send their clients reminders of appointment time and directions a day before and another one two hours before the booked time. Clients are welcomed with a warm smile as the assistants come to greet you from the car park and lead you to the therapy room where client finds a personalised message on a black board at the reception.

Coup Dee Touch Spa offers an array of services from mobile spa treatments, couple treatments, beauty treatment as well as massages. With the weather permitting a spa day it does not need to be always an individual affair – one can take their partner, family or event host a group of friends or client for a day of relaxation and self-love. Some of the benefits of taking time out at a day spa depending on what is offered and your objective for the day include: Disengaged from work, family and friends; Slow down and allows the body to re-generate; Improves blood circulation hence sending more oxygen and nutrients through the body and cells; Stimulates the lymphatic system to rid the body of toxins; Body exfoliating treatments polishes the skin, promotes cells re-generation, refines pores and offers skin relief; Water is yin and yang – when body is submerged in water, it offers true balance; Heat treatments to stimulate blood circulation and initiate purifying process; Body wraps to re-mineralise the body, re-charge the body with nutrients and elements, boosting moisture in the skin, helping to rejuvenate and relax the body and mind.
