Saunas are a great way to unwind, relax, and warm up. They’re also a great chance to relax socially. Among many reputed health benefits, saunas are thought to be able to relieve pain, improve performance in sports, temporarily relieve cold symptoms, and reduce stress. Like many good things, however, it is important to use a sauna in moderation.
Discover the powers of hot & cold (contrast) bathing in our daily “signature sauna infusion”, guided by our resident sauna masters. Sauna infusions are included in all overnight stays and day retreats. An experience not to be missed!
an infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses an infrared heater to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat which is absorbed by the surface of the skin. An infrared sauna heats your body directly like the sun but without the harmful rays and without warming the air around you.
