Your one-stop oasis of wellness

When they decided to move to Swakopmund in 2015, she was a bit unsure on how to relaunch Ciana Day Spa in the coastal town.
She decided to become acquainted with the environment and opened the spa towards the end of 2016.
The one-stop wellness shop in midst of the town centre allows clients to spend the whole day with pampering treatments, enjoying lite meals and having a bubbly bath.
Marion practises on her own and welcomes any qualified therapist to work at Ciana. She also took a sabbatical year and wrote a six-month theoretical and practical course manual on how to become a class/gym instructor.
The principle of this little wellness oasis is that everything is done differently than what is usually the norm at your ordinary beauty salon.
The name Ciana is Italian and means “light”. It was chosen because it allowed the thought of a new business concept. It also accommodates as many holistic approaches under one roof as possible and is similar to a shopping mall, but just in a mini practicable setting.
Ciana’s purpose is to make it easy for women to find all the holistic approaches under one roof without having to shop around.
“Time is valuable and therefore it is much easier to stop here, take two to three hours once a month for pampering treatments such as bridal, pamper one’s, relaxation and pamper bliss packages, and go back home, feeling like a brand new six pence,” explains Marion.
This means clients can for example enjoy the spa throughout the course of a day.
Ciana also caters with special packages for matric farewell candidates and offers value packages and a special on facials.
Other specials on offer include beauty ritual and couple treatments where one can bring along one’s partner, daughter or friend.
Pilates classes are also available with only small private groups and the time can be adapted to clients’ needs.
“The possibility of life coaching - which is a good mindful, mental treatment - can assist you to discover your actual abilities. It can also serve you with self-confidence and guide a person to find his or her purpose in life,” says Marion.
Slimming options are also on offer via the application of the fat freezing technique. To add up on the freezing process and to support the biological changes in the body the ozone treatment will help a person get rid of the toxins in the body.
Ciana Day Spa employees love what they do and can claim many achievements with regard to helping people finding their purpose in life, losing weight or visiting for a relaxing massage and facial, among others. According to Marion even clients from Windhoek are still returning to Ciana Day Spa when they visit Swakopmund.
“By serving holistic approaches, we are happy about returning clients looking to achieve their goals. May it be for better facial skin, losing weight or finding their purpose in life through life coach sessions, and mainly rebuilding self-esteem and feeling good about themselves.”
