Me, Dave and the Archangel Raphael

Have you ever wondered what you could give someone who already has everything? Well, how about a soul uplifting ritual that promises to re-balance your body from head to toe.

Have you ever wondered what you could give someone who already has everything? Well, how about a Soul Uplifting Ritual at the beautiful new Suntra Spa in Cape Town?

Situated on the 7th floor of the impressive new five star 15 on Orange Hotel, not only does this spa have the most awesome views of Cape Town, it also offers some very unusual treatments on its already extensive menu. So, when my editor passed on the spa invite to me, I felt quite chuffed. Only hours later I started to stress about what I'd let myself into. What on earth is a “soul uplifting ritual”, as promised in the brochure, and what are they going to do to me?

According to the spa invite, the ritual is a "tailor-made specialty treatment by Tera-Mai Seichem Master Dave Talbot called 'Mind, Body and Soul' which re-balances the entire body whilst healing injuries and infusing energy from head to toe".

Tera-what? Not feeling any wiser, after re-reading the invite carefully, I felt even more trepidation. It all sounded far too airy-fairy to me. Can't I just have a nice normal massage or something? Why me?


Well, after a lovely long Easter weekend, D-day arrived and I dutifully clocked in at the spa for my two-hour soul uplifting ritual. Actually, I felt very relaxed and rested after the long weekend and did not really feel in need of any soul upliftment, thank you very much!

After a short grounding process and meditation, the grand finale followed: the channelling session.
