The ritual begins with the aromatic steam or sauna allowing the heat to loosen and soothe tightened congested muscles. As an interlude, take a refreshing cool shower to awaken your spirit. Round off the ritual with a long soak in the vitality pool to prepare you for your spa treatment.
The regime of alternate hot to cold produces rotating sedative and invigorating responses in the body to stimulate and awaken your senses. The hot and cold sensation on the skin penetrates deep into the body where it is instrumental in balancing the energies, stimulating the immune system, enhancing blood circulation, promoting detoxification, and restoring the body to a state of harmony.
