Like many others, I think living in an estate is awesome but not many of us can afford that.. not when the house of my dreams cost around 11 million rand’s.
Its quiet common to find Spas or Salons in estates but I never knew that many of them open it to the public.
Blue Valley Health and Beauty Spa is situated on the most prestigious golf course in Midrand. Hidden inside this huge golf estate is a small spa which caters for you and I.
I decided to take my mother along with me on this review because she absolutely loves to be pampered. It was just before Mother’s Day and I thought this would be a great way to spoil her.
The spa isn’t very big however the decor makes up for it, you can see a lot of thought was put into the setup to make it welcoming.
The spa offers: Body Treatments, Facials, Massages, Waxing, Sun Bed, Manicure and Pedicure, Chemical peels, Filler, Mesotherapy and lots more.
My treatment was the Blue Valley Bliss Spa Package. This includes a 30 min Spa Jet capsule and a 60 min Muscle Ease Back massage. Unfortunately there was only one person working at the spa so I had to split this treatment with my mom. She had both and I had the 30 min Jet capsule.

• Deeply hydrates the skin
• Facilitates detoxification
• Facilitates product absorption
Spa-Jet™ features comforting infrared heat that is the same frequency level as our own body heat. The infrared waves are invisible to the eye and penetrate deep into skin layers, creating 2-3 times more perspiration at lower temperatures than hot air.
Infrared general effects
• Increases blood and lymphatic circulations
• Increases metabolism
• Facilitates cellulite reduction programs
• Soothes muscle aches and pains
• Facilitates detoxification
Hydrofusion™ is an exceptional technological breakthrough that creates a single blended energy from infrared heat and steam. Hydrofusion™ optimizes skin cleansing and detoxification, resulting in more balanced, hydrated skin and increased nutrient absorption from skin care products. The secret behind Hydrofusion™: infrared heats the body causing the skin to perspire. The moisture cannot vaporize in the moist steam environment, thus forming a protective layer on the body surface. This condensation layer is absorbed back into the skin, increasing oxygen supply to the blood stream and tissues leaving skin soft, supple and rejuvenated.
Spa-Jet™’s herbal aromatherapy ensures optimal, deep relaxation while stimulating the sense of smell and herbal extract absorption into the skin. Soothing essential oils and herbs can be combined for a unique, customized experience.
This treatment is absolutely amazing! I would go over and over just for this. At first I was scared but once it turned on, I became more relaxed. Mum enjoyed this too and was amazed at what the machine could do. The massage was exactly what mom needed as she works extremely hard during the week and I could tell from her body language that she enjoyed the treatment. Blue Valley Spa may be hidden inside the estate but it has a lot to offer which makes it a spa to visit. The highlight of the day was bonding with mom at the spa. It’s exactly what we needed.
