Give yourself a moment of total well -being, in the midst of nature, with our saunas located outside, in the gardens of the Hotel La Vetta .
You will have the possibility to choose between Sauna and Bio Sauna, to live a personalized experience according to your preferences.
What is the sauna?
The sauna, practiced in Finland since about 1100, takes place inside a wooden box, inside which, thanks to the presence of special stoves, very high temperatures (more than 80 °) can be reached, all with a extremely low humidity level (between 10% and 20%).
Usually the treatment lasts between 10 and 15 minutes (also because it would not be possible to resist longer), at the end of which we allow ourselves a break, and then eventually repeat the session.
The benefits of the sauna are many:
The heat dilates the pores and increases sweating, favoring the elimination of toxins .
The change in temperature has positive effects on circulation by dilating blood vessels.
The heated muscles relax , promoting a deep state of well-being.
What is the bio sauna?
The biosauna can be defined as a “softer” sauna , a kind of middle ground between the latter and the Turkish bath.
The main differences between sauna and bio sauna are 2:
In the biosauna the temperature never goes above 60 ° .
The relative humidity of the biosauna is around 60% .
To obtain these environmental conditions, special stoves with integrated steam generators are positioned inside.
Again the blood vessels dilate, the pores of the skin eliminate toxins through sweat, and our body (actually our mind as well) relaxes, but everything happens extremely more gradually and comfortably, over a longer period of time (the milder temperature allows us to prolong the treatment even for half an hour).
Another detail that differentiates the classic sauna from the bio sauna is that essential oils from dried herbs and hay are diffused in the air , which penetrate the skin revitalizing it, as well as inducing a sense of deep well -being.
