- Finnish Sauna - With its changing stimuli of high and low temperatures, the sauna offers mental and physical relaxation, creates a variety sensations, boosts performance and helps release waste products and toxins from the body. The entire cardiovascular system as well as other metabolic functions greatly benefit from sauna therapy.
- Turkish Steam bath - In our steam bath we vaporize essential oils from medicinal plants. Through the skin and respiratory tracts these essences reach the organism and produce a pleasant effect. The perfect combination of humidity and warmth helps reduce excessive muscular tension. Physical relaxation in turn produces a calming effect on the nervous system. The humid warmth penetrates deep into the tissue, increases blood circulation in all organs and induces agreeable processes.
- Fir bath "Brechelbad" 50°C - The special sauna stove vaporizes herbal essences that pass through a metal basket at the ceiling, filled with pine cones and branches. The herbal essence is vaporized automatically at short intervals. The vapour rises to the ceiling and is pressed down along the walls to your back. The release of essential oils invigorates your entire organism. The various refreshing and soothing ingredients reach the body through the skin and respiratory organs. They stimulate your organism and help harmonize mind, body and spirit. You can breathe deeply and feel released and renewed. A pleasant feeling for the entire being.
- Oriental Rasul bath (extra charge) – A skin care treatment based on "1000 and one nights" The Rasul bath is an ancient Arabian bathing ritual. It combines a mud pack with an herbal steam bath.
After a quick shower, a special mud pack is applied to your entire body. Dried herbs are placed on a colander over a special oven in the steam bath. The temperature and humidity level gradually rises so that the body can quickly adjust to the temperature change. The moist air increases the amount of sweat produced and the mud pack liquefies on the skin. The "healing earth" will purify your body and skin – impurities are absorbed into the mud. You will then feel the urge to remove the mud from your skin. By gently massaging and rubbing the mud on your skin, the tiny grains act as a peeling and remove dead skin cells while stimulating your circulation. This bathing ritual ends with a warm shower. After the cleansing shower, you apply a mixture of nutrient-rich oils to your skin. The Rasul ritual is used as prevention against illness, stimulates the immune system and circulation, and cares for the skin as well as purifying and detoxifying the body.
- Kneipp foot warming pools - Foot warming pools are individual Kneipp pools. Unlike the Kneipp pool, where you are actively moving, the foot warming pools invite you to just relax and get comfortable with your feet in warm water.
- Cold air cave - Our cooling and fresh air room is the perfect place to cool down after enjoying the various beauty and wellness applications. Proper cool-down in this temperature controlled environment activates your senses.
