SA spas to participate in Global Wellness Day

Several South African properties will offer complimentary wellness activities on Saturday, 11 June as part of the 11th Annual Global Wellness Day (GWD) celebration.

This is the only day of the year dedicated to living a well life. The 2022 GWD theme is #ThinkMagenta, an idea that rises amidst the negativity in the world – a reminder of the need for positive thought and action. Each year, tens of thousands of locations around the world join in GWD with in-person wellness activities, workshops and talks.

The South African properties that have committed their support for this year include Amani Spas, The Saxon Hotel Spa, The Drostdy Hotel and Spa, The Cape Grace, The Oyster Box, The Views, Matsimela Spa, and Beauty Training Institute (BTI), as well as Oukelele Spa in Namibia. They will host some exciting events and take time out to promote wellness and wellbeing for staff and guests.

Some 130 GWD Ambassadors around the world, plus key supporters, advisors and volunteers, have been working together to change people’s lives in a positive way and to add colour to their thoughts.

Says GWD Ambassador for South Africa, Emmy Stoltz: “Our supporters are more eager than ever to celebrate positivity and to promote wellness together for this year’s event. Besides the 3-hour on line GWD Presentations from around the world, South Africa will also be doing its bit to promote positivity, wellness and complimentary events from the tip of Africa.”

Some of the events and planned items for 2022 that form the basis of the complementary activities on offer include the following:

· Counting your steps on GWD – a challenge for anyone and everyone right across South Africa.

· Wearing Magenta on GWD to promote positivity.
