Urban Bliss – Bespoke Wellness Treatments for the Modern Gent



A few weeks ago, the Swag Craze team visited Urban BLISS in Johannesburg. Urban BLISS goes beyond the traditional spa approach and offers a truly bespoke and integrated wellness service to their clients. The philosophy at Urban BLISS is to fuse the latest modern technologies with the ancient art of relaxation through treatments that aim to create wellness by dedicated trained professionals. 


Ayesha Rajah (MD of A&I Importers) shared great insights on the latest wellness trends shaping the wellness landscape in 2015. The trends she mentioned included Hyper-personalised beauty, Cardio is the new cocktail (morning power raves) and Meditation is the new rock star to name a few.

(P.S. We are going to add a wellness section to Swag Craze and will provide you with more details on the trends which Ayesha shared with us).

Ayesha has over 20 years of experience in the skin care and beauty industry. She has gone to great lengths to create a unique environment at Urban BLISS featuring treatment rooms that echo some of the world’s finest cities, like London, Paris, New York and Tokyo.
