What to avoid?

  • a meal just before coming to wellness
  • depilation (can cause skin irritation)
  • perfumes (because of allergic reactions)

Eco tips

  • Do not unnecessarily leave the water running and the lights on.
  • Use plastic glasses economically and dispose of them and of other waste in garbage cans.
  • Respecting the nature is part of each wellness experience.

Tips for using the sauna

  • Read the Spa Relax Zone House Rules. Before entering the sauna or using the whirlpool, taking a shower is mandatory.
  • Take your time, spend at least two hours in the sauna. SPA RELAX ZONE is a zone without swimsuits! Take off your clothes and jewelry, put on your robe and only take a towel. Wear plastic slippers, but take them off before entering the sauna.
  • Thoroughly wash your face, take a shower and dry yourself with a towel (this will enable proper perspiration). If your feet are cold, warm them in a Kneipp bath with hot water. We recommend using saunas with lower temperature and sitting on lower banks in saunas prior to subjecting yourself to higher temperatures (Lakonium).
  • When visiting the sauna for the first time, do not use it longer than 10 minutes. When entering the sauna, close the door swiftly to prevent cold air from getting in. Spread out your towel and sit / lie down.
  • When using the Turkish sauna, first wash your seat with water. Before leaving, sit in the upright position for two minutes (so that the body can establish regular blood pressure).
  • After leaving the sauna, rinse the sweat off first with lukewarm water (without shampoo or soap) and then with cold water. Rest for 20 minutes and then repeat the process of using the sauna for as many times as you wish. Finish your visit to saunas in a sauna with lower temperature. Finally, relax in the whirlpool (just before using it, take a shower for hygienic reasons). While resting, drink water, juice, tea… Eat some fruit to regulate the level of calcium in the body. To make up for the loss of magnesium, eat green vegetables. Eat something salty later. Before leaving the Spa Relax Zone, cool down to a point when you do not sweat anymore.
  • After using the sauna, the skin is perfectly prepared for massages, beauty care treatments or solarium.

  • respiratory diseases (bronchitis, asthma)
