I recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of the Reviv Wellness Spa in Johannesburg. This is a spa with a twist…at first I thought is was the usual run of the mill type of spa, with manicures and pedicures, but it is actually what is also known as a “Drip Bar” because you get your boosters via IV infusions or injections, if preferred.

I have no fear of needles, but this was not the case for some of the media and bloggers who attended, but don’t worry, as a tiny prick is all that is standing in the way of feeling revived and rejuvenated.

Mo Sistas sign up and commit to supporting the men in their lives while helping to promote men’s health at home, in the workplace and within their community.”
