The Thermal Centre at Les Bains de Lavey extracts and harnesses the virtues of this ancient water in a thermal ritual. The ritual begins: enter the heat of the sauna to purge the body of its toxins before braving the bracing cold of the Nordic pool. This thermal shock to your system will stimulate your circulation and tighten the pores in your epidermis. Now your body must rest, so stretch out on a deck chair and admire nature’s grandeur while absorbing the warmth of the flickering fire. Lastly, slide your body back into the hot water. Your body, relaxed, regains its natural energy. Your immune system is strengthened, your spirit is free and you are wholly revitalised. Now, start all over again.
It’s time to go. A little mist from the Thermal Spray and your face is beautifully hydrated, a little extra vitality to see you on your way. Respect your body and stay in the moment, maintaining your inner tranquillity. There’s no haste and no hurry. Just enjoy a light meal, spring water and a great deal of rest.
