We have created a suggested bathing plan for you to follow, to help you make the most out of your Heat and Ice Experience.
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 rooms and is often used as a warm up for the other units.
After the Caldarium, you can go either into the Sauna or the Sanarium® - this will depend on your heat preference.
After a treatment in each unit, it is important that you cool down (using the showers and Ice Cave) and relax (benches, bathing, Tepidariums or even back in the Caldarium) for at least 20 minutes. You can then repeat this cycle two or three 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 perspiring and therefore can limit the beneficial effects.
After, you should move on to the steam bath and repeat the same cycle – bathing, cooling, unwinding 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).
Finally, it is important that you drink plenty of water or fruit juice throughout the day to aid rehydration.
