Spa / Sauna

Inside the Spa facility, guests will enjoy the finest Finnish sauna available. In the tradition of an indian sweat lodge, rocks are heated with fire instead of electricity, producing a healthful, naturally detoxing environment. A superb sauna such as this is essential for maximum cleansing.

Enjoy the Health Benefits of Sauna

During a 10-20 minute sauna session, your heart rate increases by 50-75%. This provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise. The increased cardiac load is the equivalent to a brisk walk.

During a sauna, blood flow to the skin increases to as high as 50-70% of cardiac output. This brings nutrients to surface tissue resulting in glowing healthy skin.

Saunas induce sweating to provide a comprehensive cleansing of the skin and sweat glands. The skin is the largest organ in the body. 30% of body wastes are passed through the skin. Profuse sweating enhances the detoxifying capacity of the skin by opening pores and flushing impurities from the body.

When taking a sauna, skin temperature rises to 104° F and internal body temperature rises to about 100.4° F. Exposure to the high heat creates an artificial fever state. Fever is part of the body’s natural healing process. Fever stimulates the immune system resulting in increased production of disease fighting white blood cells and antibodies.
Some of the other benefits associated with saunas include:
• Relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis.
• Revives tired and strained muscles after physical exertion.
• The cleansing effect of profuse perspiration also encourages cell renewal and a glowing    youthful, clear complexion.

 

Exfoliate Before Your Sauna

Exfoliation is at the core of cleansing. Exfoliation sloughs off dead skin, clearing the pores for sweating in the sauna and afterward, clean skin is better able to absorb powerful minerals in the water.

The Spring Spa offers an extensive and tantalizing array of buffs, wraps and massages. Our spa staff has created an incomparable menu of healthful delights for you at The Spring Spa.
