Let your guests embrace the cold elements of the thermal journey
Saunas and steam rooms have long been a staple part of the pools, spa and wellness experience, but to offer the complete thermal journey to your hotel or spa guests, both hot and cold must be incorporated.
Cold therapies are a key part of the wellness experience, as they can promote blood circulation and have a beneficial effect on the lungs and airways. Here is a guide to some of the cold therapies you could be offering guests to give them the full wellness experience.
An exhilarating cold plunge pool
A quick dip in a cold plunge pool is an excellent way to complete the thermal journey, giving a powerful cold stimulus to awaken the senses. A bespoke Guncast plunge pool would complement your swimming pool and sauna. If you are unable to dig down, you may want to consider a freestanding floor-level KLAFS COLD WATER PLUNGE POOL (which can also be installed as a recessed basin), also available from Guncast.
An invigorating cold bucket shower
A cold bucket shower gives your spa an air of Scandinavian authenticity. It not only gives the right aesthetic, it provides the all-important refreshing cold water douse, to energise and invigorate the bather immediately after stepping out of a hot sauna or steam room.
A refreshing ice shower
Those guests looking for a more sustained cold-water experience, might prefer an ice shower. The KLAFS Eucalyptus Ice Shower provides a very special experience in the form of tropical rain, drenching the bather under a single-jet flood shower head.
An unforgettable ice lounge
A short break in a KLAFS ICE LOUNGE from Guncast is the perfect way to cool off between heat therapies. A cool, relaxing atmosphere, featuring an ice fountain in the centre, will delight your guests. Icicles that grow up from the STALAGMITE ice fountain can be broken off by the bathers to cool their skin. The freestanding POLARIS ice fountain can be installed virtually anywhere in your spa, offering sparkling ice crystals for your guests to enjoy. You can further enhance the experience for your guests with the addition of the ATMOSPHERE by KLAFS, ultra-high-resolution screens that show dramatic nature images, from snowy peaks to drifting ice flows. You can speak with a KLAFS specialist at Guncast for a customised ice fountain that suits your property.
A skin-tingling Snow Lounge experience
What could be more refreshing after a sauna than a snowy wonderland? Offering temperatures of -10°C, the KLAFS SNOW PARADISE® from Guncast is a unique and exciting way for your guests to cool down. They can experience the joys of winter all year round. Offer your guests this natural way to cool off surrounded by soft, powdery snow, rocks and crevasses.
Extreme cold – Cryo cabin
Exposing the body to extreme cold for short periods of time through cryotherapy, was originally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. It has since evolved to be used for health, wellness and beauty purposes, by athletes and celebrities, alike. Cryotherapy chambers can be found in sports therapy centres, trendy health clubs, exclusive spas and hotels, beauty salons, and dedicated cryo centres.
Some of the suggested benefits include:
- reducing arthritic pain
- treatment of athletic injuries
- reducing inflammation
- improving skin conditions, such as eczema
For something really special, offer your guests the cryotherapy experience with the KLAFS Cryo Lounge from Guncast.
