If you have never been [
you haven’t lived] Scandinave Spa provides a unique hydrotherapy experience. The rustic installations surrounded by the forest and mountains provide the perfect backdrop for relaxation + peace and quiet. Hydrotherapy is an effective way of releasing tensions in both the mind and the body is an ancient practice that dates back thousands of years.
The cycle of hot-cold-relax is proven to both energize and rest the body, improving blood circulation and activating the lymphatic system to help detoxification. It also actively promotes the release of endorphins, also known as the “well-being hormones”. Revived. Body & Mind.
Basically, you will move through the property from hot pools, to cold pools, to relaxation stations. Then repeat as many times as you like. Here’s what this does:
HOT – Raising the body’s temperature dilates the blood vessels on the surface of the skin, reduces blood pressure, and increases blood flow to the skin and muscles, thus initiating a state of calmness and introspection.
COLD – Tradition suggests that the hot stations be followed by immersing oneself in cold water. This step causes the skin’s pores to close thus shutting in the heat from step one. These refreshing stations promote a shift in blood pressure, encouraging the body to flush toxins, the muscles to release tensions, allowing you to fully engage in the benefits of the circuit.
RELAX – Indulge in a 10 to 15 minute period of doing nothing, relaxing in our solariums, hammocks and other mid-temperature areas. During this final step, the cardiovascular system regulates itself. After spending time in the hot and cold environments, it is recommended to rest the body to help stabilize blood flow and heart rate.
It’s incredible!!! I always leave feeling completed recharged and every time I do go, it’s just as amazing as the last. Never gets old!!!
