Thermal SPA experiences to treat yourself to an inner well-being
To better face the countless SPA experiences in Porretta Terme, the SPA Manager of Hotel Helvetia Thermal SPA, Rossana Rivano, has personally followed and advised for years the Guests who stay in the hotel and those who go during the day for the Day SPA.
The ideal day for those approaching a SPA experience certainly needs some useful tips to enjoy it to the fullest, taking advantage of the every benefits of the wellness program
To best prepare your body and skin for the profits of thermal water, the first thing Rossana recommends is a thermal water body ritual, smoothing, elasticizing and draining treatment, it will eliminate dead skin cells, purifying it of toxins accumulated.
Thus, the ideal moment comes to immerse yourself in the warmth of the salt-bromide-iodine thermal waters of the pool, following an aquatic path dedicated to the relaxation of the body, including bathing, whirlpools, cervical waterfall, to finish with a walk along the vascular path, invigorating for the whole body. Rossana recommends dedicating sessions of up to 40 minutes at a time to the path of the waters, which, thanks to their concentrations and temperature, can cause fatigue for prolonged dives.
Thus, you pass to the moment of real rest, taking advantage of the available relaxation beds, sipping one of the natural herbal teas available for all guests and, why not, enjoying a good reading or simply listening to the sound of the water with your eyes closed.
When the natural cycle of rest is over, it is time to devote yourself to a new SPA experience, entering the area of the Grotto’s warm environments, where Rossana recommends following a path with increasing temperature. Starting from the Biosauna with its partially humid environment with a temperature of 40 ° which with a suggested stay of about 10 minutes, followed by a shower and a few minutes of further relaxation, will help prepare the body for the experience of the Turkish Bath or hammam, the ancient ritual appreciated for centuries for its ability to confer profound benefits on the psyche and body, at the center of the effects of the warm atmosphere of its vapors and its aromas to be inhaled. The Sauna is undoubtedly the last appointment of the path in the Cave, with its high temperature at 90 °, the warm and dry environment of the sauna helps the purification of the skin, the elimination of stagnant liquids in our body and improves the circulation blood. Unless you are suffering from particular pathologies, Rossana recommends shorter cycles, 5-6 minutes each, repeated with a break of at least 10-15 minutes from each other.
Relax and purify, yes, but nutrition also plays an important role and, after a morning dedicated to activities in the SPA, lunch time is to be considered an equally important ritual of the SPA experience. The CiPensoIo Restaurant inside the welcoming environments of Hotel Helvetia Thermal SPA, offers healthy, light and tasty cuisine, which balances the right energy intake with delicious and light dishes. On the menu, the Chef’s recommendations for Day SPA guests include celery and ginger cream with diuretic and digestive properties, cream of potatoes and carrots, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants useful to fight free radicals, or our centrifuges with draining or detoxifying properties.
Reinvigorated by the gastronomic delicacies of the area, ready for a new immersion in the paths of the thermal waters of the SPA, for those who want to do some physical activity, it is time to take advantage of the Fitness Center, equipped with Technogym cardio circuit machines, for those instead wanting to dedicate themselves to complete relaxation, a relaxing massage is ideal, enriched perhaps by the properties of our essential oils.
The afternoon can thus continue between dives in the Thermal Pool and in the Grotto, savoring relaxing herbal teas and moments of rest.
The end of the day is the ideal time to treat yourself to a regenerating face treatment with the exceptional cosmetic products of the Elemis line, which will thus retain their regenerating power for longer.
For couples, a moment of intimate well-being in the suite care is unmissable, you cannot miss a “Signature Treatment” couple massage performed simultaneously by two of our therapists, which ends with a tête-à-tête toast, accompanied by bubbles and fresh fruit.
