Camelot Spa Pearls Mall

A Re­newed Sense of Health and Beauty

DRIV3R.world - - SUPERCAR PREVIEW -

A spa ex­pe­ri­ence takes you away from the mun­dane into the realm of the ex­cep­tional. Whilst many spas fo­cus on the aes­thet­ics of beauty, Camelot Spa Pearls Mall, de­liv­ers you be­yond beauty into the world where well­ness and health com­bine into a life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Hav­ing been to spas world­wide in­clud­ing high end spa­ces in Dubai, Bali, Thai­land and New York, I had suf­fered the lack of a be­spoke ex­pe­ri­ence when I am in Dur­ban. Car­ry­ing the ten­sion of a caf­feine ad­dic­tion, hours at a com­puter and hav­ing just stepped off a plane from Kash­mir, I was seek­ing a place that would re­vive me for a fast-paced week­end at the Dur­ban July.

Camelot Spa Pearls Mall wel­comes you into an ocean­themed in­te­rior, where you are swiftly whisked off into a soft robe and slip­pers to a glass fronted room with a view of the In­dian Ocean. The taster of what is to come from the heal­ing pow­ers of the sea is vi­su­alised by the feel­ing of be­ing on the up­per deck of a cruise ship, sip­ping fresh juices and munch­ing on straw­ber­ries. It takes a great deal to re­lax me, and deep breaths are of­ten my prob­lem.

Candice, my ther­a­pist was deeply in­tu­itive, sens­ing much with­out me hav­ing to say any­thing at all. She ex­plained the ther­a­pies, the prod­ucts and the se­quence of events, and if you are a high func­tion­ing Type A like me, all this in­for­ma­tion is well stored. The scent of ylang-ylang in a spray to start my ther­a­pies had me breath­ing deeply for the first time that day.

Camelot Spa Pearls Mall uses the French Thalgo Range of prod­ucts, a range that is re­searched and de­vel­oped to use the power of restora­tive ma­rine prop­er­ties to re­vi­talise and heal. Treat­ment of the face and body with Thalgo tech­nol­ogy and prod­ucts be­comes a lux­u­ri­ous rit­ual of ac­cess­ing your body’s senses to cre­ate beauty through heal­ing.

Treat­ment be­gan with first as­sess­ing my prob­lem ar­eas, pick­ing up ar­eas of con­ges­tion where lymph had be­come static cre­at­ing puffi­ness and a dull com­plex­ion. This treat­ment of the root cause of skin prob­lems, in­stead of sim­ply aes­thet­i­cally treat­ing symp­toms made me aware of why I could not achieve a glow, de­spite us­ing many other prod­ucts and make-up ranges. The iBeauty Pu­rity Fa­cial with the MCeau­tic Pro Detox uses 5% pure oxy­gen, deeply detox­i­fy­ing the deeper lay­ers and promis­ing cell re­gen­er­a­tion. For me, anti-ag­ing is some­thing I take very se­ri­ously, and the Thalgo tech­nol­ogy takes it as se­ri­ously as I do. The ef­fect of the ma­rine based prod­ucts with the use of the se­quen­tial ul­tra­sound, and ex­fo­li­a­tion of Thalgo’s new gen­er­a­tion peel­ing tech­nol­ogy had me feel like lay­ers of bad skin habits were melt­ing off me.

The skill of the ther­a­pists at Camelot Spa Pearls Mall brought me closer to un­der­stand­ing how my stress­ful life and my in­abil­ity to ac­cess emo­tions had neg­a­tively im­pacted not only my body, but the triad of mind-body-soul. This be­spoke treat­ment came in the form of my ther­a­pist in­tu­itively ac­cess­ing ar­eas of my body dur­ing a Poly­ne­sian mas­sage that had been stor­ing up lymph and tox­ins. Go­ing deeper, she ac­cessed the merid­ian points that had stored up long-held nega­tive emo­tions and en­ergy. I am al­ways one for scep­ti­cism and sci­ence, and as she used

sto­ries of where more ar­eas of body con­ges­tion lay, and the un­der­ly­ing nega­tive emo­tions sur­round­ing this en­ergy blocks. A pres­sure point foot treat­ment is a gift I will give my­self soon at Camelot Spa Pearls Mall.

Most peo­ple leave a spa and tell their In­sta­gram fol­low­ers about be­ing “blissed out.” I left af­ter my four hours at Camelot Spa Pearls Mall feel­ing some­thing more than bliss. And that some­thing is the knowl­edge that, here in this cruise mode, I could not only look my best, but also feel my best so that I could lead my best life. The Thalgo range is now on my list, and so is a fu­ture mem­ber­ship to Camelot Spa Pearls Mall. They of­fer mem­ber­ships, with loy­alty points, gift cards for the one big thing on my bucket list – The Flota­tion Tank, which is a deeply heal­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing sus­pended in wa­ter with prop­er­ties akin to The Dead Sea.

Other spa treat­ments in­clude nail, face and hair pam­pers. I was treated to a cleans­ing hair wash with Ker­atin prod­ucts, and a fab­u­lous blow wave, promis­ing my­self a full colour and high­light ses­sion an­other day. which cer­tainly got me ready for the Dur­ban July. Of­fers for Au­gust in­clude a Win­ter Won­der­land Spe­cial of To­tal Body Deca­dence.
