New Website

WOW!

It’s been a whirlwind few days. I tried building a website, and it wouldn’t work, so I did an online Udemy course to learn the basics of WordPress, and this site is the result of the stuff I learnt there.

Please forgive the errors you find here. Email me on info@centurionmassage.co.za and I’ll get them fixed as soon as possible.

I am still waiting for a few photos of team members, and also a Bio or two. Bear with us. We should have things running smoothly shortly. Things I will be adding in the next week or so:

  • Online Scheduling – you’ll be able to select the massage you’d like, and the therapist of your choice.
  • Online payment – Once payment has been received, your online booking will be confirmed. Don’t worry, we’ll first discuss the requirements before we ask you to pay. This will be through a secure, onlineĀ PayFast portal.
