Pure Awakening was founded by Judy Swart in 2010, a somatology graduate who has worked at many of the top five-star spas in and around Cape Town. She wanted to focus on marketing and sharing her expertise in bringing luxury spa services into more homes. Two years ago, she started recruiting a team of freelance therapists who share her passion and high standards, allowing them to build their own clientele and have a healthy work-life balance.

Each therapist on the Pure Awakening team brings years of experience and unique skills to the table, offering a holistic approach to wellness. The team understands that massage therapy is not just about promoting relaxation but also about addressing specific conditions such as back pain, repetitive strain conditions, and headaches.

The therapists at Pure Awakening have excellent communication and active listening skills, which are essential for establishing a therapeutic relationship with clients. They make a focused and conscious effort to not only hear the words being spoken but also to fully understand the message being communicated. This approach helps them to address clients’ needs and provide a relaxing and therapeutic experience.

Time management is also crucial for massage therapists, whether they are self-employed or working at a clinic. The Pure Awakening team prioritizes each client’s needs while still ensuring that they have enough time to take care of business, including cleaning and setting up the space for the next client.

Pure Awakening is passionate about providing clients with a five-star spa experience in the comfort of their own homes, hotels, or guesthouses. The team’s dedication, expertise, and holistic approach to wellness ensure that each client receives the best possible treatment.
