Hands On wellness in memory of Nelson Mandela

Bread being donated to the community by ww received from SascoNational massage services and wellness company Hands on Treatment participated in the global ’67 minutes for Mandela Day 2015’ initiative by treating gift givers and community police to well-earned seated head and neck massage therapy.


Hands on Treatment has pioneered mobile corporate massages in South Africa since 2002 and has grown from a modest Johannesburg-focused wellness and massage services company to a progressive national wellness services venture.


The company provides seated neck and shoulder massage services to the corporate sector specialising in teams working together in call centres, open plan areas and also events and exhibitions. Corporate massages are delivered at the workstation without disrupting the office environment.


Hands on Treatment has been a Proudly South African member since 2003 and in 2007 received the Proudly South African best SMME Service award. The company has scored highly on the QSE Scorecard and is categorised as a Level 1 Contributor to Broad Based BEE, meaning that their clients can claim 135% of their spend via their own scorecard.


As a thank you to officers at the Randburg Police Station and in the spirit of Mandela Day on July 18, the company treated officers to massage therapy.


C.A.C Grietjie Botha summed it up so perfectly! “An awesome experience – the massage filled me with energy to do my job. The therapists are awesome, friendly and beautiful. You made a difference to our day. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. Together we can bring light, hope and joy to people around us.”


The company did not stop there. It followed through with its support of the initiative by teaming up with three Woolworths stores – Pinelands, Paddock and Flamingo Vlei in Cape Town, to support those who were handing out food to communities, and those tasked with looking after children at the Footsteps Educare Centre in the Da Noon informal settlement.


“It was a true community upliftment initiative. We had people erecting a roof enclosure in front of the Centre and people who are handing out food parcels, and providing much needed equipment. We were honoured to be a part of this initiative and our therapists treated care givers and teachers to massage therapy,” said Martina Laurie, CEO, Hands on Treatment.


“We are a proudly South African company and we have a history of empowering young ladies who have not had opportunities to become skilled and to secure employment. The 67 minutes for Mandela Day is an important initiative and the meaning behind it is something we continue to subscribe to daily,” Laurie adds.
