The experiences on offer have their roots in cleansing & beautifying the body. They originate from cultures dating back thousands of years:
Sanarium, this is a luxurious timber chamber combining the traditional pleasures of the Scandinavian sauna with the added benefit of steam infusion, mood lighting & background music. The 'softer climate' will allow you to spend longer in the cabin so the heats can deeply penetrate the body & soothe joints & muscles.
Tepidarium, in the Roman Spa the Tepidarium was a lukewarm lounging area usually located in the opulent hall of the Spa. It gave bathers the opportunity to unwind whilst watching the world go by.
Caldarium, a 2000 year old Roman tradition. The floor, benches & walls are heated offering a dry, warm environment for perspiring & cleansing the pores. Cocoon yourself in the aromatic vapours & allow the stresses of the world to drift away.
Steam Bath, a humid heating sensation it is also known as a Turkish or Roman Steam Bath, particularly beneficial for the respiratory system. The heat in combination with essential oils helps induce a state of deep relaxation.
Rustic Sauna Cabin, a Finnish tradition offering intense dry heat. An authentic copper kettle disperses aromatic water over the coals to create warmth & essence in the cabin. This large rustic space offers an ideal environment to unravel your mind & rest tired, aching muscles.
As two thirds of the human body is comprised of water it is no surprise that we are naturally drawn towards this nurturing natural element.
Hydro Pool, with water fountains for shoulder & neck massage, air loungers for full body massage plus individual jetpacks tailored to specific hydrotherapeutic needs, this is the ideal way to relax whilst breathing in the fresh Irish country air.
Foot Baths, offering a gentle relaxing foot soak massage to soothe & stimulate the feet. Aromatic salts are provided to offer a variety of sensations & therapeutic effects.
It is important to cool down after using one of the heat experiences. Cooling the soft tissues not only moderates your body temperature, it invigorates the body & stimulates the nerve endings leaving you feeling refreshed & energised.
Ice Fountain, gently apply crushed ice onto the body to counteract the warming effects of the heat experience.
Experience Showers, these are fabulous showers offering a multi-sensory experience to help cool the body, from soft tropical rain to invigorating ice rain. A waterfall shower, bucket douche, body shower & kneippe hose complete the experience.
Lie back & relax as you take some time out in the 'Resting Zone'. Sip a cool beverage to hydrate as you appreciate the breath-taking country views.
