Guests may choose from a wide range of traditional massage techniques that are tailored to their wellness needs.

The Treatment menu includes Traditional Massages: the Therapeutic Massage – a gentle massage to loosen stiff, sore muscles; the Deep Tissue Massage- for loosening the build up of lactic acid.

The Africology Bespoke Massages include the Intonga Amasatchi – a deep tissue and stress-relieving treatment and the Soul of Africa Body Conditioning Massage – Africology admires and emulates the ceremonial processes and uses Africa’s miracle Marula oil blended with Neroli to soften signs of ageing through its anti-stress action.

Body Treatments include the Inkomfi Full Body Exfoliation where carefully selected Marula and Walnut micro particles, enveloped by hydrating Shea butter from Ghana ensure even exfoliation and the African Potato Body Experience- a pure and natural Hypoxis Body Wrap formulated with African potato and Marula (warm) oil that is applied to soften, soothe and improve skin hydration.

The African Goddess Facial is a treatment designed to honour the goddess within. This de-stressing, anti-ageing, cell-renewal facial is rich in natural oils, deeply hydrating and restores elasticity and stimulates new cell growth.

Three Africology Bespoke Facials are: the Vitamin Booster which uses a rich vitamin and mineral cocktail to replenish the skin, boost the immune system and energise the skin; the Aloe Ferox Firming facial, Africology’s answer to Botox and the Anti-Oxidant Rejuvenating facial, a treatment designed to combat the effects and signs of ageing.
