Rejuvenate, Revitalize, Relax…
Widely recognized for their energizing and relaxing effects, Scandinavian baths and hydrotherapy are associated with many benefits. In addition to cleansing the body, they stimulate blood circulation and the release of endorphins. All of the senses are awakened; muscles are soothed; a general sensation of well-being washes over you. Immerse yourself… to emerge again feeling calm yet invigorated by the experience of the Scandinavian baths. Ultimate relaxation is enjoyed when baths are enjoyed prior to or post a Registered Massage treatment. Plan to stay with us for at least two to three hours to fully benefit from the experience.
The first stage includes heating the body up which dilates the blood vessels on the surface of the skin, reduces blood pressure, and increases blood flow to the skin and muscles. The increase in body temperature causes considerable perspiration, which helps cleanse the skin and release the body’s negative energy, including chemicals absorbed from the air, water or food, as well as residual toxins from certain metabolic processes.

The second stage includes closing the pores of the skin with a brief, but, highly beneficial cool rinse.

The final stage is designed to allow the cardiovascular system to regulate itself. After spending time in hot and cold environments, it is recommended to rest the body to help stabilize blood flow and heart rate. This is a time for body & mind rest and relaxation.
