About Ginkgo Spa Cape Town

“He who enjoys good health is rich, though he knows it not ” Italian proverb

At Ginkgo Spa and Wellness Group we invite you to relax with us and recapture the forgotten sense of well-being.

Our Philosophy

The Ginkgo Spa emblem consists of three ginkgo leaves forming a circle. This represents the three important areas of balance – mind, body, and soul – all within the concept of holism.

The proven practise of touch therapy is the foundation on which our operating philosophy is built – the principle of utilising the natural ability within ourselves without having to rely on trendy and quick fix solutions.

The service offered is uniquely personal and we pride ourselves in offering treatments that are based on the traditional touch therapy principles.

Each Skin, Spa and Touch Therapy treatment begins with a symbolic footbath – a ritual representing the cleansing of life’s stresses and tensions.

The Spa’s comprehensive menu of treatments represents a blend of traditional and global accents. Many of the therapies are based on the beauty, healing, and rejuvenation secrets of ancient cultures which in turn focus on both the inner and outer self – with nourished skin, soothed muscles and a calmed mind.

Every detail is an important part of the Ginkgo experience. Every sense is to be indulged, from the ceremony that accompanies each treatment to the use of the finest and most exclusive products available.

Ginkgo Biloba – It’s History

The Ginkgo Tree is the sole survivor of a plant group that lived in the temperate regions of both hemispheres, during the Mesozoic era over 250 million years ago. It is a tree which has in its keeping the secrets of an immeasurable past. Glaciers of the ice age nearly erased it from the earth along with the dinosaurs. It was at the Shaolin Temple in the Honan province of China where the last remaining plants of the Ginkgo tree were discovered. These trees were cultivated and revered by the monks of the temple who saved them from extinction. The Ginkgo is known for its many virtues. One such virtue is the possession of the human quality of loyalty.

“To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.” William Londen
