Colour therapy room
Our colour therapy room harnesses the gentle power of the energy and specific wave vibrations of colour to improve physical and emotional well-being. In this peaceful space, colours of light cycle through one of six 15-minute sequences. Based on traditional Indian concepts, the patterns are designed to aid meditation, creativity, energy, calming, harmony or chakra balancing.
Two state-of-the-art current pools provide the perfect resistance-training environment for swimmers.
In the hydrotherapy pool, the body is massaged with jets of warm air and warm water. An excellent way to relieve pain or tension in muscles and joints, this hydrotherapy is very good for circulation and for detoxification of the system.
A rare and exotic feature for this desert country, the ice room closes pores and enhances circulation after any heating treatment.
Invented by the Romans to ease the war-weary muscles of soldiers, the laconium is commonly referred to as a mild Finnish sauna. Our laconium room is a thermal suite, similar to a sauna, but with a milder temperature so that you can enjoy it for longer. The laconium stimulates circulation, accelerates elimination of metabolic waste and mobilises the body’s natural defences. Stress is reduced, the heartbeat is stimulated and the blood pressure regulated. The result is a feeling of freshness and deep mental and physical relaxation. The duration of the treatment depends on individual preferences; you will notice the laconium's effects after 15 to 20 minutes.
Laconium beds are personal tiled loungers located in the communal hydrotherapy area. They retain and radiate gentle heat, similar to the dry heat of the Mediterranean sun, gently warming you. A relaxing place to pause and enhance the effect of your recent treatment.
Reflexology foot bath
Combining warm water with stone pebbles to stimulate thousands of nerve endings in your feet, the reflexology bath invigorates your whole body. Its ability to stimulate the metabolism and strengthen the immune system makes it particularly effective for convalescence.
Relax and improve circulation by immersing yourself in the cold pool and then in the warm pool alternately.
This Scandinavian favourite uses dry heat to help open pores, detoxify skin and body, and promote circulation.
Using wet heat infused with the scent of eucalyptus, the steam room cleanses and tones skin, leaving it feeling soft, supple and healthy.
With water spraying from the sides as well as from above, the Swiss shower provides gentle massage as it cleanses. It aids circulation as it relieves discomfort, particularly the discomfort of arthritis and rheumatism.
