An important part of the sweat bathing cycle is cooling down – not everyone loves the shock of dipping into a plunge in an icy, cold pool. If that’s you, then the gentle cooling effect of our snow room is just what you’re looking for!
The philosophy behind our snow room stems from Finland, home of the sauna. Finns would typically end a sauna session with a cleansing and invigorating “roll in the snow.” There are many health benefits to incorporating hot/cold contrast therapy into your spa visit, including a boost to your metabolism and immune system. In addition, the cold dry air of a snow room offers additional health properties by promoting respiratory health, improving blood circulation, and alleviating sore, inflamed muscles.
How to use
After spending time in a hot sauna, your body will be fully warmed and muscles mobile and relaxed, perhaps leaving you with a feeling of fatigue. Heading to the snow room to cool down will reinvigorate your senses, and bring your body back to its natural temperature. This is an important and necessary step in the experience. Let your body gently cool down for 3-5 minutes, feel free to pick up the powdery snow to rub on your legs and arms. Then relax or lie down for 15 to 20 minutes while hydrating.
