We all know that we can feel the difference having spent a few hours in the Relaxation Lounge and Victorian Turkish Baths, but do you know why? Whilst you hit the pause button and spend some time relaxing your body is going through a number of processes that will have a noticeable and positive effect on your health and wellbeing.
1. Improve circulation
The journey from hot to cold experience causes blood vessels to dilate allowing blood to flow more easily transporting oxygen around the body. Reducing blood pressure and help keep heart healthy.
2. Improve your general skin health
Sweating helps to remove toxins, through opening up the pores and helping to cleanse the outer skin. Your skin will feel nourished, rehydrated and revitalised.
3. Reduce Stress
Can make the body release endorphins helping to reduce the feelings of stress in the body, can also decrease the level of cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress. When cortisol levels drop people it can make people feel more relaxed, rejuvenated and more in control
Through the opening of your sinuses the process of steam and sauna bathing helps to break down any congestion allowing you breathe more deeply and easily. We also invite you to enjoy colouring or to complete a simple mindfulness exercise whilst you are in the Relaxation Area.
5. Easing Tension
We all experience tension, aches and pains. However a visit to the Spa can help to reduce joint pain, as to the body the effects are similar to a pre-workout warm-up. The journey from gentle heat to the freezing plunge pool offer excellent healing properties for day-to-day aches and niggles.
