Introducing LING New York at the Saxon Spa

We are excited to share that the Saxon Spa has introduced the fantastic New York based brand LING in the spa from 1 December 2021, making us the first property in Johannesburg to feature this renowned brand. Our guests are able to experience an exciting variety of signature LING treatments at the Saxon Spa, as well as being able to purchase LING products to use as part of their skin-care regime at home.

LING is an American luxury professional skin care brand founded in NYC in 1976 by aesthetician Ling Chan, merging state-of-the-art ingredients with Asian beauty secrets for effective, holistic skincare. Their ethos is preventative skincare - curated from the east to blend with the west. Their formulas are free of parabens, artificial fragrances, lanolin as well as alcohol, which creates a great synergy with the Saxon Spa’s drive towards wellness and the use of products that are not only good for our skins, but also environmentally friendly.

The Saxon Spa has introduced a wide variety of signature LING Facials, including treatments with Energy Lift as part of the existing offering. In addition to these facial treatments, the spa will also feature the LING Deep Sleep Wellness Massage offering guests the opportunity to experience this amazing stress and anxiety relieving treatment at the Saxon Spa.

In the words of Saxon Spa Manager, Tanya Lopes, “We are so excited to launch a brand that is exclusive to our luxury property in the Johannesburg region and only in the finest hotels in South Africa. This will offer guests a unique experience with a world-renowned brand, favoured by many A-list celebrities, and which provides a broad scope of global skincare offerings.”

We are proud to offer LING’s signature Wow Triple Peel Facial at the Spa. This treatment begins with a sugar cane glycolic peel and a papaya enzyme peel to digest dirt and impurities and finishes with an acid-free rescue peel. Highly skilled thorough pore extractions are then performed by the therapist to remove impurities and pore congestion in accordance with our 28 days skin cycle. Next will be a detoxifying Herbal Clay mask, followed by the legendary LING custom blended Ginseng Therapy Moisture mask to instantly soothe, revive and alleviate inflammation. This treatment leaves the complexion super clean, smooth and clear.

Another standout in the variety of LING treatments that the Spa offers is the Deep Sleep Wellness Massage. This massage uses Tourmaline crystal to infuse chi energy into the body to melt away stress and anxiety. The heated crystal is then applied to acupressure points to stimulate the meridians and increase energy flow within the body. The guest will then be treated to an hour-long full body massage using aromatic oils and focusing on areas of tension that cause discomfort. This complete holistic treatment goes beyond the typical massage and brings a truly rejuvenating experience to body, mind and spirit.

The Spa team is excited to be working with the LING team and we look forward to our guest’s feedback on these new treatments.
