    Keeping in step with all the apocalyptic musings regarding this auspicious month in 2012, Musha Matombo finds itself at the end of an era that has seen us open and operate our small business from within the womb of our family house for the past 6 years. What a journey of joy it has been, made worthwhile through the support of many of our clients who are still with us and the continued interest and referrals of many who have left the country.


    It seems to be a yearly phenomenon that we get so fond of the current group of regulars, that we don’t want them to leave! To the regulars who have been with us since inception we send you BIG love and thanks always.


    Now we are looking forward to the beginning of a new era signaling new spaces and new ways of doing what we do! We are moving….to another part of the same property on the hill. One treatment room with ensuite shower room is already up and running – a beautiful space under thatch. Architectural plans have been drawn up for the second treatment space and reception area which will be perched up on the pool terrace level with views over treetops and sunset. Excavation into the hill was completed in the past week.


    Of course we will not escape all the chaos and mayhem that the exercise of building brings with it. Because we intend to continue being able to offer treatments during this transition period, we ask that you bear with us and accept our apologies for any and all sounds and sights of construction that may accompany your treatments which we will obviously try to minimize where possible.


    During the Christmas holidays we intend to close from noon 22 December – 20 January so that we can focus on the building works and spend time with visiting family from afar.


    We will consider taking bookings for therapeutic treatments on an Emergency Only basis if any of our therapists are around at the time of your requested booking… ;-)


    Looking ahead into the first quarter of 2013 please note the following:

    1              All treatments will take place in the cottage which has the capacity to treat two people at the same time if need be. Since this will be the only treatment space available for a few months, please be sure to book in advance when possible to get the time slot of your choice. We are considering extending our week day opening hours to later in the evening on some days. In order to help us assess the viability of this option please indicate your interest for after-hours treatments.


    2              Indian Head Massages are now offered on a drop-in basis (no booking required!). Payment is on a donation basis – pay what you think it’s worth! This is a great opportunity for those of you who can’t get a booking but are desperate for some instant stress relief while at the same time supporting your local therapists-in-training.


    3              Price of treatments increased in mid November. Please check on the cost of your treatment when booking if you are unsure. Mobile massage rates remain unchanged.


    4             $10 discount on treatments of 1hr + duration booked on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Just because we don’t want you to miss out!


    5             Yoga with Meera is on holiday in India! We expect the yoga classes to resume again by mid January or early February.


    We still remain, Mad About Massage and that ground to stand on when everything else is falling away. You know what we mean. ;-)


    Wishing you readiness for what comes next….


    Musha Matombo is us with love.
