The health benefits of Finnish saunas are widely known. Whilst the lovely scent of lavender in a lavender sauna has a relaxing effect, the smell of a wood-burning sauna carries all your stresses away.
Having a sauna at your hotel adds value to your holiday and benefits your wellbeing. The primary mechanism behind this is enhanced blood flow throughout the body. In a sauna, your heart rate increases to a rate similar to what it would be during a good walk. The increased blood flow stimulates the organs to release toxins faster, eliminating them via the skin’s pores. Regularly frequenting a sauna encourages your body to produce more white blood cells, in turn strengthening the immune system. What’s more, saunas are deeply relaxing and reduce stress levels as you surrender to the warmth and serenity at your chosen resort. Simply let go and enjoy!
Got something to celebrate? Looking for a romantic weekend away? Spoil yourselves with a few added extras in your room, such as a nice bottle of wine or a private jacuzzi. Enjoy the bubbles in in your glass as you soak in the bubbles in the bath. Now that’s a treat! Then get a sound night’s sleep under the cosy duvet of a luxurious bed, waking refreshed and energised the next morning.
Wellness resorts are also termed spas. The word ‘spa’ is an abbreviation of the Latin Sanitas Per Aqua, or ‘health through water’. In Roman times, visiting health resorts or bath houses was simply a part of daily life. The Romans lived according to the motto Mens Sana in Corpore Sano, meaning ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’. Spas represented a social meeting place where massages were taken for physical and mental wellbeing. Mental and physical wellbeing remains the guiding principle behind wellness centres today. What has changed over time is the number of facilities, with today’s spas often featuring multiple saunas and steam rooms. Whether you’re booking a wellness weekend, a week’s retreat or a spa day, all aspects of wellness are designed to leave you feeling refreshed and more resilient to everyday stress once you return home.

Wellness holiday with thermal baths
Thermal baths do wonders for one’s health. Indeed - there’s good reason why the Romans took the plunge for treating all kinds of complaints and ailments. The water comes from deep down in the earth, rising to the surface purified and enriched with minerals. The specific minerals the water contains depends on the composition of the ground. As such, each hot spring has different healing properties. There are those that ease rheumatism, pain and skin conditions. Others still help with inflammation and complaints of the digestive or nervous system. Many health resorts also use the thermal waters in the therapies they offer. This creates the opportunity for you to combine a relaxing wellness holiday with optimising your wellbeing and the preventative treatment of physical ailments.
What is a wellness holiday with thermal baths? Thermal water can be used therapeutically in various ways. The spa at the health or wellness resort may use the waters as part of a water cure. In this application, the minerals are absorbed by the skin. Other treatments revolve around inhalation, whereby the healing components are breathed in. There are also drinking cures for internal healing. You may notice the results after just a few days, or it may take longer. Whatever the case, the beneficial and relaxing effects of the thermal waters will not escape you. When combined with other delights – such as delicious food, luxury, service and rest – a spa holiday with thermal baths makes for the ultimate wellness holiday.
