Heat and Ice Experience
optimum conditions for relaxation. But steam baths are also especially beneficial for the respiratory system and for rheumatic complaints. Salt Steam has the added benefit of a salt water atmosphere, which is great for cleansing and toning the skin and stimulating the circulation.
Shower Warm Footbath Caldarium Steam or Salt Steam Cool Down and Relaxation Shower

Heat and Ice Experience
One of the main treatments is still the traditional soap foam massage* that is carried out on the ‘hot stone’ massage table. Repeated dousing with lukewarm water between the massages and a long rest afterwards, turn the hamman into an extraordinarily relaxing bathing experience.

Cool Down and Relaxation Sauna Warm Footbath

If you find a classical Finnish Sauna too hot or too dry, the Sanarium offers the ideal alternative. A temperature of around 60°C and a controlled humidity of not more than 55% creates a particularly gentle and temperate climate in which to relax and feel good. Relaxing in the Sanarium is the ideal way to recharge your batteries. The unique blend of heat followed by a stimulating shower boosts the body’s natural defences and promotes the circulation, shifting your entire metabolism up a gear. A Sanarium bath also cleanses the skin and tones up the body’s tissue.

Suggested Bathing Plan
Always start with a thorough shower, removing all makeup, deodorants and perfumes. Dry thoroughly. A warm foot bath will open the blood vessels and promote circulation. The Caldarium is your main starting point as this is a lower temperature than the other units and is often used as a warm up. After the Caldarium, you can go either into the Sauna or the Sanarium, and this will depend on heat preference. After a treatment in each unit, it is important that you cool down (showers and Ice Cave) and relax (warm benches, bathing, Tepidariums or even back in the Caldarium) for at least 20 minutes. You can then repeat this cycle 2 or 3 times (in the Sauna or Sanarium). It is important that you enter the units dry, not wet from the showers or spa as this stops you perspiring and therefore does not have any real beneficial effects. After, you should move on to the steam bath and repeat the same cycle – bathing, cooling, relaxing and repeat. Before getting dressed and leaving, it is important to cool off properly (putting clothes on straight away could make you feel a little unwell). It is important that you drink plenty of water or fruit juice throughout the day to aid rehydration

Sanarium Cool Down and Relaxation

Warm Footbath

These experiences provide unique body sensations brought about by dramatic changes in temperature. A combination of heat experiences derived from ancient Roman, Greek, Turkish and Finnish rituals.

The beneficial effects of perspiring in specially designed facilities have been known for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks and Romans knew and used the therapeutic effects of perspiration, although the modern practice of savouring a Sauna in a log cabin, at high temperatures and low humidity, originated in Finland.

Caldarium – Roman Hot Bath
Large-scale warm air bathing rooms, or ‘caldaria’, were a central feature of Roman lifestyle: a lifestyle that was both luxurious and healthy. A typical feature of the Caldarium is the even, beneficial, radiated heat that emanates from the stone walls, floors, seats and reclining areas. The intensive warmth of the Caldarium penetrates the body very deeply, stimulating the circulation and regenerating the body’s natural energies. This powerful effect has often been regarded as having healing benefits. Tense muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother, stress melts away and joint pain is eased. These are the perfect conditions for anyone wishing to avoid extremes or looking for a delightful form of deep relaxation in the bustling atmosphere of The Day Spa Heat and Ice Experiences.

Its low humidity means that bathers can stay in the Caldarium for a relatively long period of time (up to 45 minutes).

Steam Bath (& Salt Steam)
Steam Baths have a history behind them that dates back centuries. They were very popular in ancient Greece and the ‘sudatorium’ was a central feature of Roman bathing culture. The Romans also took the steam bath with them to the Eastern Mediterranean, where Turkish steam baths still thrive today. Steam baths have also been common in Northern Russia for centuries. Not only are they enduringly popular, steam baths are also extremely good for you. It is all about perspiring pleasantly as you would in a sauna, but in a totally different climate – not so hot but a good deal more humid. For many people the lower temperatures of around 43 – 46°C and 100% humidity are the

Ice Cave
The Ice Cave is a great place to cool off after your Sauna or Sanarium, providing an unforgettable cooling experience. Grab a few handfuls of the fresh rock ice and rub it over the skin to provide instant cooling. Mix in a cold shower in the Ice Cave and you will have truly cooled down, contracting your blood vessels, stimulating your circulation and oxygen intake.

Just like the Roman Caldarium, the Hamman has a history centuries old. Also known as the ‘Turkish Bath’, it is a traditional public bath in the countries of the Orient.

Spa Bathing Rituals
The origin of the term spa remains a mystery to this day. However, one explanation comes from translating the Latin letters S, P and A, frequently found inscribed on the marble walls of Roman public baths, meaning ‘Salude Per Aqua’ – health or healing through water.

Most of the treatments in our brochure are suitable for men and women; however, we would like to highlight a few that have been specially designed with the modern man in mind; Elemis Skin IQ+ Facial ESPA Aromatherapy Sports and Fitness Massage Elemis Urban Cleanse Facial ESPA Relaxing and Deep Cleansing Back Massage Treatment For your comfort we recommend underwear or swimming attire to be worn.

Hamman and Soap Massage
The Hamman also known as the “Turkish Bath” is a centuries old public bathing ritual. The room climate is similar to the Caldarium and the traditional Soap massage is carried out on the hot stone table designed for wet treatments. The heat stimulates the circulation, which purifies and detoxifies the body. The extraordinary relaxing bathing experience leaves you feeling relaxed and revitalised. Allow 40mins

The Rasul is a traditional Arabian cleansing ritual that uses mud, heat and steam. Medicinal Chakra Muds are self applied to specific areas of your body; relaxing in the warmth the respiratory system benefits from the steam infused with pure herbs while the Muds intensely detoxify. A gentle shower relieves the tensions and washes away the muds. The skin is nourished leaving you revitalised. Our Rasul may be booked in pairs or up to four guests in one session. Individual hire is subject to availability. Allow 45mins
