forest hydrotherapy circuit

Welcome to our forest hydrotherapy circuit, where we aim to provide moments of healing with elements of nature, comfort, simplicity and tranquility. An ancient ritual dating back thousands of years, hydrotherapy is an effective way of releasing tensions in the mind and body. The cycle of hot, cold and relax is revitalizing, and actively works to reset your nervous system. You will experience complete privacy as each booking is prepared just for you.


This stage increases your body’s core temperature, dilating blood vessels on the skin’s surface, reducing blood pressure and increasing circulation to the skin and muscles. This increase in body temperature causes considerable perspiration, which helps cleanse the skin, purify the body’s energy and invokes a state of calm and introspection.

Forest Hot Tub
Infrared Sauna


This stage closes the pores of the skin, thus deepening the heat from the hot stage. Cold water helps to release endorphins and increase your heart rate. This refreshing experience promotes a shift in blood pressure, encouraging the body to flush toxins and release muscle tension. This stage is where you will receive the most benefit of the hot, cold and relax cycle.

Cedar Cold Plunge 


This stage in the circuit allows the cardiovascular system and nervous system to regulate itself. After spending time in hot and cold environments, it is recommend to rest the body to help stabilize blood flow and heart rate. This is a time for body and mind to rest and relax. You may want to bring a book, meditate or just lounge and do nothing.
