Melt that tension away: Try a hot stone massage at Beauty & Nails by Ronelda


I was very pleased when a friend of mine recently gave me a voucher to spoil myself with a full body massage at Beauty & Nails by Ronelda in Summerstrand. Adding to my excitement was the fact that it was to be my first hot stone massage ever!

Arriving for my appointment, I was greeted by salon owner, Ronelda, whose bubbly personality instantly made me feel at home. She then introduced me to Annelie, my masseuse, who escorted me to one of their rooms where I was asked to lie down and unwind for a few minutes.

With soft music playing in the background and scented candles burning, my mood was set for relaxation. Annelie started by gently placing the hot stones along my spine and in each hand, before massaging my feet and legs, alternating between her hands and the hot stones. It became clear from her technique that she was an expert in her field.

After thoroughly massaging my feet and legs with oil, she moved to my hands, arms, back, neck and shoulders, each time only exposing the body parts she was massaging. I could feel the knots loosening in my body as the hot stones slid over my back and shoulders – it’s not an exaggeration!

Annelie then asked me to turn around and lie on my back, repeating the same process and altering between her hands and the stones once again. I was so relaxed that I slowly began to fall asleep.

After my treatment - and feeling as fresh as can be, I spoke to Ronelda and learnt that they had been open for 16 years. During that time they have built upa strong, long-term relationship with their customers.

Various other treatments on offer at Beauty & Nails by Ronelda include waxing, facial treatments, sunbed sessions, make-up, eyelash extensions, manicures, pedicures and artificial nails. I learnt that they will soon be adding hair removal, skin rejuvenation and laser treatments. In addition to these, they offer nail and eye-lash extension training.

For those who care about what they put on their skin, Beauty & Nails by Ronelda are stockists of ‘Nailsforu’, Hannon Hair Care & Faces, Environ, RegimA and Avon products to name a few.

I loved every moment of my experience at Beauty & Nails by Ronelda. To book your appointment, call 041 583 2222 or visit 25 Millard Crescentin Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth.
