The community of Langa can now enjoy a spa-treatment on their doorstep at Guga S’thebe Arts & Cultural Centre.

The 30-year-old Aisha Lebaki from Langa has opened a spa called Day Dreamer African Spa in the township.

Lebaki said after completing her matric in Maitland High School in 2009 she studied a one year course in Business Management at Afrisa Institute for Global Training.

She said after completing the course she worked at Crystal Towers Hotel where she started out as a waitress and ended up a hostess.

Lebaki said in 2015 she joined a woman in Athlone who was teaching massaging skills from her home charging them R3 500 for a one month course.

“I have always loved things that has something to do with beauty. I used to do people’s nails but I fell in love with body massaging and decided on learning the skill,” she said.

She said she went back to work at the spa at the hotel she used to work for in 2016 and after gaining the experience she needed she decided to start her own business in 2017.

“Since then I have been working from home but because I needed more exposure I decided to move the business to Guga S’thebe last month,” she said.

She said she does get support from the community even though many people still think spas are for white people.

“The business has been good so far because people do require my services,” she said.

She hopes to have a bigger space one day and teach others the skill.

She said she offers a foot massage for R150, a back and neck massage for R150 and a full body massage for R200.

Lebaki said she also offers a mobile spa service where she gives massages at your home. V For more information call Aisha Lebaki on 076 9335816
