WHIRLPOOLS AND CERVICAL WATERFALLS
The beneficial effects of thermal water jacuzzis have been recognized thousands of years ago and are now known to be part of a non-invasive medicine treatment. If used with perseverance, whirlpools are one of the most efficient treatments to find the right balance of the body. Once in warm water, the body faces a gradual adaptation to the new temperature and thanks to the jacuzzi it relaxes, decontracting all muscles.
It is recommended, to ease muscle tensions of the neck, the use of cervical waterfalls. Through the method of a continuous massage, produced by the jet of thermal water that flows constantly on the shoulders and neck, we obtain a relaxing effect on muscles and to the vertebre. The falls are to be used while maintaining cervical spine and shoulders just below the surface of the water. It is suggested not to do more than 3-4 applications at a time.
The barrel vaults and lying jacuzzis of the Chalet Swimmingpools have the possibility to have ozone jets going while taking the hydromassage.
Ozone is a natural component of the atmosphere. The jacuzzi inserts oxygen in the water creating a resolution and a consequent formation of ozone.
Ozone has a detoxing and toning-up action which involves an anti-aging effect, and helps blood circulation, it also induces relaxation on the body and mind.
THE KNEIPP PARCOURS
The Kneipp Parcours, based on an alternation of hot and cold water, reduces stress and stimulates the body and mind. Heat has a calming effect on the body while cold water has an energyzing effect on tissues.
An outdoor Kneipp Parcours is available by the Chalet swimming pools. Hotel guests may also use an indoor parcours by the Panoramic swimming pool.
SAUNA AND STEAM BATH
Tha sauna takes place in a dry room with a low percentage of humidity. Heat helps to relax and to detox the body.
Steam bath is done in a room with a high percentage of humidity and elevated temperatures with thermal steam.
Steam dilatates blood vessels and circulation, furthermore humidity and heat help to relieve congestion on mucous membranes and is therefore suggested in case of colds. After the steam bath it is suggesed to take a shower with fresh water to tone-up muscles and feel more energic and to narrow pores, finally we suggest to relax a while.
