Indulge your body & pamper your soul
Melbourne summer may be a season of cool breeze, mild sunshine and lots of outdoor activities but it also comes packaged with the soreness of sun burns, tanning and body fatigue. Get rid of such skin disasters and body ailments and enjoy a bit of luxury in a natural way, with the range of beauty treatments at Body Freedom, a day spa located in the inner parts of South Melbourne.
Known for its diverse beauty treatments, this day spa caters to both men and women and has products which soothe your mind and calm your senses. Be it massage, waxing, facials, scrubs or face packs – you can indulge every part of your body in distinct luxury and leave the baggage of summer outside your soul.
Particularly noteworthy is its MELT package which is designed to cajole your body and relax your mind. In this 2 hour session you can get your body exfoliated and massaged and while the aroma of natural oil gets soaked into your skin, you can enjoy a gentle foot massage. Highly courteous and friendly staff will make this experience an integral part of your memory.
Treatments range from less than 2 hours to lasting up to a whole day. Choose from their library of pre-planned packages or get something designed personally for you with the help of their experts. You can plan your favourite session here with a bunch of friends on a weekend or just spend a cosy day with your special someone amidst complete pampering.
Make sure to call up and book your session in advance as it generally gets busy with high influx of customers. Body Freedom is located at 392 Clarendon St, South Melbourne; it is easily accessible by Tram 112 or within walking distance from the CBD. You can take a peek at the Body Freedom website and give them a call or send a quick email for further enquiries. Indulge your body and pamper your soul and transform a casual weekend/weekday into an unforgettable moment of this summer.
Very DODGY company. My father ordered two gift vouchers (one for me and my wife, and one for my brother and his wife) each $207 and they only sent one of them. They also only issued one of the two invoices (mine), yet they took money for both orders and charged my fathers credit card for both. We found out a few months later when my father asked if we'd used them and we knew nothing about it. When we tried to claim it the director SUE HOMEWOOD said my voucher had been used already by my brother. They had obviously stuffed up and sent my vouchers to my brother and not sent my brothers vouchers at all. I assume at the time it was an honest mistake because we had the same last name. When we tried to make a booking using a copy of the invoice my father had sent me, she said 6 months had passed and the voucher (which she never even made) would have expired anyway. Thing is, not having received it, how could we know we had only 6 months to use it. She then couldn't provide a copy of the missing invoice or the voucher number as she couldn't find it in their system and refused to do anything about it - clearly there was no invoice and she knew she'd made a mistake but refused to own up to it. I would not buy anything from this company, they are DODGY. The 6 month expiry in itself is ridiculous and I think they make a good business out of taking peoples money refusing to provide the services.
