Traditional steam room
Crystal Salt Steam Room
The steam room differs from the sauna with a softer heat of 48°C - 50° C and virtually 100% humidity. Infused with salt and essential oils, inhaling the salty air (known as halotherapy) has health benefits particularly for the respiratory system and skin. The room features a quartz centre piece which helps increase energy (chi) whilst bringing more balance and harmony to your life.
Aromatherapy Steam Room
The benefits of steam rooms or showers have been known for thousands of years. The 40° - 45° C heat opens the pores to aid detoxification. The heat and humidity may bring health benefits ranging from aiding stress relief, to body cleansing, to soothing aching muscles or arthritis with the added benefit of essential oils to influence your mood.
The Romans invented the Laconium as a room to start the spa journey and is heated at 30°C - 35°C (this will not necessarily induce perspiration), raising the body temperature this tricks your body into thinking you are starting to get a fever, which in turn helps improve your immune system. The room temperature is achieved by heating the walls and benches allowing you to get great deep warmth penetration through your body when you relax on the benches with your feet on the foot stools. The experience is further enhanced with the injection of relaxing aromas along with the latest light colour changing system.
Heated between 65°C - 70°C, blended with natural herbal and plant oils such as Eucalyptus and Lemongrass which can be inhaled or absorbed by the skin giving medical benefits as well as making you feel revived.
