Be adventurous and embrace extreme temperatures, silence, and digital detox in a journey towards wellness. Scandinave Spa Whistler will defy your expectations of what relaxation looks and feels like. Set your intention and trust the process.
Your journey towards relaxation will challenge you as you move through intense stages of heat and cold. Deep relaxation is finally found when silence, breath and stillness unite. Settle into rest, calm the mind and centre on the present.
Hot | 15 Minutes
Increasing body temperature causes the blood vessels on the surface of the skin to dilate, reducing blood pressure and improving blood flow to the skin and muscles so a state of calm and introspection can be achieved.
The dry sauna is the hottest installation of the thermal journey. Turn the hourglass over once inside the sauna and challenge yourself to stay 15 minutes in extreme heat. It is key to control your breathing.
Cold | 30 Seconds
This step causes the pores of the skin to close, trapping previously absorbed heat, and increasing blood pressure thus priming the body to eliminate toxins and the muscles to release tension.
The cold plunge is the coldest installation of the thermal journey. Breathe consciously as you submerge yourself, with control, from head to toe. As the shock of the extreme cold takes your breath away, control your instinct to exit and embrace the challenge of staying submerged for a few seconds to a few minutes.
Relax | 15 Minutes
Treat yourself to a period of complete rest. Sit back and relax. Close your eyes and enjoy the benefits of thermal therapy. During this step, resting helps the body resume normal blood circulation and heart rate.
This is an ideal time to try meditation. Concentrate on breathing deeply and evenly while quieting racing thoughts so the mind can fall silent, and the body can focus on recovery. Go further with your relaxation and make the conscious effort to bring the mind back to the present during these singular moments of calm and introspection.
