Deep Well & Co can provide design advice and knowledge on the following wellness experiences & facilities to compliment thermal bathing:
Generally a simple timber cabin with a heat source radiating warmth from the wood-clad walls via heated stones, warmed by electricity and normally operating between 70° C and 105° C.
Often called a caldarium or sudatorium from its Roman bath equivalent, a steam bath (or steam room) is typically a tiled or stone room reaching temperatures of between 42° C and 48° C with 100% humidity provided by hot steam.
Salt rooms have steadily grown in popularity— however, it should be noted that though a “salt wall” is aesthetically pleasing and salt on the floor has a welcoming feel neither of these uses of salt provide any real benefits.
Hot & cold-water pools realise surge of blood, caused by contracting blood vessels, for a particularly invigorating experience.
There can be nothing more exhilarating than stepping from a traditional sauna into a landscape covered with a fresh fall of real snow with which to cool the body. Operating at -10° C to 0° C, these rooms are becoming features in some modern spas.
Ice caves and frozen chambers also offer an alternate to a Snow room and operate between 0 and -15 degrees.
