Select Shopping | Pamper yourself now: Christmas is over

December 27th, 2012 6:52 am| by admin

Christmas jolliness aside, the festive period is a tough time – especially with the continuous carol singing, last minute shopping, mandatory overeating, and visiting every Tom, Dick and Harry you’ve ever met. So now is the time to start relaxing and rejuvenating for the year ahead. For those looking to give their health and wellness a boost, what better way to do so than hit the shops that specialise in pampering.


Complete Me
Complete Me is the must-visit spot for wellness and pampering in the heart of the inner city.  Focusing on pampering the body from head to toe, Complete Me uses organic brands like Jurlique and Själ. There offer massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing and much more. You can also try a floatation treatment where you float in salt water while listening to calming, meditative music.
