FINNISH SAUNA AND KNEIPP POOL
The Finnish sauna is characterised by an air temperature near to 90°C which the body is able to endure because of the very low humidity level (almost 0%). The beneficial effects of the sauna are enhanced by the subsequent thermal shock caused by immersion in the Kneipp pool which is fed by running water at 8°C. The sudden difference in temperature reactivates the circulation, improves capillarisation of the peripheral circulatory system, and eliminates toxins from the skin.
The humidity level in the Turkish bath is close to 90% while the air temperature is maintained at 46-48°C. These conditions cause intense perspiration without physical strain. The main benefit lies in the elimination of toxins from the skin which is left feeling soft and smooth, but there are also benefits for the circulatory and lymphatic systems.
The aromatised showers are based on the principles of chromotherapy and aromatherapy. Water containing various essences is nebulised and a gentle mist is sprayed over your body, illuminated by varying colours to stimulate the senses. The combined effect is one of wellbeing and relaxation.
The temperature in the laconicum is a tolerable 35°C. Heat is transferred from the stones – approximately 40°C – to the body directly through the skin without being dispersed into the surrounding environment. The effect is both extraordinarily relaxing and stimulating.
The hydro-massage starts with a delicate massaging action, gradually increasing in intensity as the cycle progresses, leaving your muscles feeling relaxed, toned, and invigorated.
