The term wellness refers to a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of wellbeing. Achieving and maintaining this balance provides us with increased energy, efficiency and creativity both at home and at work, improves our relationships with those around us and helps to preserve our psychophysical abilities, laying the foundation for healthy and happy later years.
Taking time to relax and revitalise is fundamental for those who aspire to a wellness lifestyle, and we are delighted to offer a wide range of products to assist in the achievement of this healthy lifestyle balance. Drawing inspiration from ancient civilisations, our range is based around the ancient Finnish tradition of the sauna, and the Roman concept of steam bathing.
In the sauna, the temperature is raised to the point where the moisture is absorbed by the wood, and a hot, dry atmosphere is created. The health benefits are widespread as the heat from the lava rocks opens the pores, flushing out toxins, relaxing the muscles and promoting a general sense of wellbeing.
Time spent in the heat is interspersed with an invigorating cold shower or plunge and enhanced by “loyly” the Finnish practice of sprinkling water on the hot rocks to produce a wave of heat.
Steam bathing has similar health benefits, but is based on a more humid atmosphere that some people may find more comfortable. Whether combining with a cool shower for an invigorating start to the day or as a prelude to deep and restful sleep, the reward is equally special.
We offer a range of standard rooms and a bespoke design service for a more individual approach to your wellness area.
