Holistic treatments

Sauna spa therapy

The sauna is based on alternating heat and cold. The temperature in the sauna reaches 90°Celsius. It is good to increase the blood flow in the sauna by rubbing the skin. The sauna increases the resistance and immunity of the human body mainly in the winter by better protecting against disease. It also acts beneficially to release muscle tension, assists in the treatment of stress and relieves overall exhaustion. A stay in the sauna also has a positive effect on the skin and mucous membranes. Many people can improve their dermatological problems. Finally, in the sauna the human body becomes hardened and gets rid of toxic substances.

It is not advisable to go to the sauna with a full stomach, if you’re too hungry, or immediately after considerable physical exertion. If you have health problems, contact the staff at the Wellness reception.


Aromatic sauna

Choose from a wide range of aromatic essences of organic cosmetics Tisserand:

  • inducing relaxation: bergamot, rosewood, cedar, ylang-ylang, geranium bourbon, lavender, sweet orange
  • bringing relief of breathing problems: eucalyptus globulus, eucalyptus radiata
  • awakening vitality: peppermint, grapefruit, pine, rosemary
  • increasing harmony: lemon, citronella, cypress, lavandin, red tangerine, tea tree, patchouli


Steam Bath

Steam baths are a hot bath (40-55 ° C) with high humidity (up to 100%). This unique climate has a positive influence on the human organism. The main difference between the climate in the sauna and steam bath lies in the humidity. The warming-through affects the organism positively. Steam baths help treat asthma, respiratory diseases, rheumatism, hoarseness, muscle disease and blood circulation disorders.

The warming-through of the organism leads to activation of the detoxification processes and fat burning, so that steam baths also support weight loss. Steam inhalation is an excellent medicinal agent with healing the cold, bronchitis, larynx, sinus inflammation, bronchitis and pneumonia. Inhalation of steam opens the skin’s pores.

Pollutants from the skin are washed out as herbs actively regenerate the skin. Unlike the climate in the sauna, the steam bath is a damp warm bath. It is not advisable to go to the sauna with a full stomach, if you’re too hungry or immediately after considerable physical exertion.


Rasulbath

The Rasulbath is a traditional oriental cleansing procedure, concluded by half an hour in s warm steam bath. Its essence lies in the biochemical impact of mud, wildly occurring in nature, on the human body. For example, at the St. Katerina Resort you can experience the beneficial effects of mud from the Dead Sea. Its application thoroughly cleanses the skin and promotes blood circulation.
