SPA AT YOUR HOME
Wellness has become an integral part of modern living, a lifestyle adopted by millions of people: not just a cosmetic procedure, but a genuine results-driven approach aimed at rejuvenating, improving the condition of the skin, activating metabolic processes in the body, relieving stress, soothing the mind and acting as a catalyst to connect with one’s inner self.
The word “spa” comes from the Belgian spa resort’s name, which has become a favourite tourist destination since the 16th century. Since the 17th century, the name of the balneological institution extended to mineral springs. In the second half of the 20th century, the word acquired a new meaning. – now, wellness encompasses all aspects of life and goes beyond spa rituals and beauty treatments.

The Stonebath® is a thermal spa experience, unlike any other, designed to offer memorable and effective wellness benefits, and it is ideal for people who are sensitive to very high heat. The source of steam for this soft sauna (50-70 degrees) is an authentic iron basket with mineral stones heated to high temperatures in a special oven. Immersed in a cold water container, the stones produce rising steam, rich in beneficial microelements. Each time the basket is immersed in the cold water through the theatrical movement of a mechanical arm where the basket is suspended, and the sizzeling sounds of hot stones (in cool water), the humidity and temperature in the room increases. The gradual increase of the temperature and humidity puts less stress on the cardiovascular system and will enable you to get maximum pleasure. Such a gentle action gives a delightful healing effect with minimal stress on the body. The magical combination of hot stones, ice-cold water and diffused steam spreading throughout the room creates a fully immersive spa experience
If you want to create a truly unique spa corner in your place, the Stonebath® is your perfect choice. Designed as a traditional or modern, stone or wooden interior, this sauna room can be customised with materials and lighting fitting your existing spainterior styles and taste.
The Brechelbath® is a genuine and truly authentic and unique herbal steam sauna, based on old traditions from the Alpine region. The sauna is equipped with comfortable wooden benches that are warmed from underneath, and heated floor lined with fresh fir needles or spruce branches. A beautiful tall stove in the middle of the room produces several steam emissions directed into an authentic copper basket with fir cones, releasing natural oils from them, and the steam, enriched with these oils, envelopes the bodies of the people sitting in the room. The steam is saturated with natural essential oils of fir or medicinal herbs, having a mild but beneficial effect on the body with temperatures in the Brechelbath® ranging between 45° and 65° Celsius. This combination is therapeutic for the respiratory system and helps accelerate metabolism and eliminate toxins. Also, the fir needles on the floor gently stimulate the feet’ reflex zones. The experience in this historical sauna is unforgettable.
The hay bath is a well-established tradition from the Alps. Today, it is an embodiment of a combination of ancient traditions and modern technologies – is used for therapeutic purposes, as well as for relaxation and rejuvenation. The practice of using the herbal (hay) bath KRAXENOFEN® dates back to the times when Austrian families gathered around a warm stove in a niche called “kraxen”. A basket of hay – “kraks” was placed in the room to release the beneficial qualities of hay. Alpine farmers used these baskets to carry hay from mountain meadows to the valley, and then they began using them in their homes.
The characteristic essence is released from the essential oils (coumarin) contained in the hay, which has a soothing and invigorating effect whilst miraculously unblocking the respiratory passages. Swiss pine, on the other hand, provides inner peace, improves physical and mental resistance, and it is good for concentration problems and tension as well as helping with sleep. The heat rises through the special hay pads, and the essence of alpine hay spreads its scent from behind the comfortable heated seats, with the herbal mist softly stroking and relaxing the back of the seated person. To maximise the benefits, the person is enveloped in a sheet to retain the warmth and allow the heat and steam to target the back and neck region during the experience.
AWARD-WINNING SPA INNOVATION – SALVE-IN-TERRA®
Awarded the Health Spa Award “Best Technical Spa Innovation”, this wellness system is designed primarily for couples, but you can enjoy the session individually. The Salve-in-Terra ceremony is not just a unique opportunity to relieve stress and have an effective skincare treatment but allows you to dive into the atmosphere of sensuality and emotions, taking wellness experience to a new level.
The couple lies down on the fine membrane surface of the specially designed bed, reminiscent of an oyster’s shells. Gentle exfoliating mixtures, therapeutic moor mud, fragrant oils, nourishing creams and many more choices, according to the chosen treatment, are applied on the bed and wrapped by the couple on their bodies. The treatment session begins with the steam filling the cabin’s space and infrared heat, and the bed starting the movement like the wings of a butterfly. The relaxing swaying of the bed enables the couple to gently slide back and forth, resulting in gentle contact while the applied products that work their magic on the body. The bed’s movement stimulates biological sensors that transmit signals to the limbic system and trigger the production of endorphins. Discreet and distant sounds and stimulating lights effects complement the effects of aromatherapy. Every four minutes, the heat increases its intensity; a change of temperature elevates the person into a dreaming state, forgetting time and space. Just before the end of the treatment, the sides of the bed are folding up like a clam. For a brief moment of intimacy, the bodies slide up close to each other. As a rousing final note, the skin is cleansed with a warm tropical rain shower or a refreshing tingling ice rain shower, and the couple will return to reality.

At the press of a button, select either a snowfall with gentle snow sprinkling or experience the full snowstorm with sounds of thunder and lighting effects, whilst flakes are swirling all around. The drifting snow crystals have the properties of corn snow, as skiers know it. The snow, therefore, only melts on the skin – not in the air. The effect is an extraordinarily refreshing feeling as can seldom be found in nature and quite simply instantly available, at any time of year. Excellent after a sauna or steam room. A truly memorable experience for you and your guests. The snow-on-demand technology is energy efficient, unlike the traditional snow chambers.
