Personal care requires time, so our guests are invited to spend time in the numerous areas of the magnificent wellness centre where they can relax, drink the spring or mineral water, help themselves to the herbal teas and fresh fruit provided. The centre is fitted out with cutting-edge and environmentally-friendly systems.
SALT CAVE: Our halotherapy experience consists in a salt cave and salt aerosol generator. The therapeutic properties of this system combine with the pleasure of relaxing in an enchanting ambiance. The walls of the salt cave are made up of blocks of Himalayan pink salt, considered the purest in the world. This mineral is 250 million years ago, hand mined in Pakistan and contains at least 84 trace elements that are beneficial to the organism. Its pink hue is due to the high iron oxide content, a mineral vital to the functioning of the human body. Sea salt is vaporised in the salt cave, the vapour is enriched with sea water particles and water enriched with ionised salt that flow over a stone mill wheel. The pleasantly warm-humid air opens the pores making it easier and quicker for the skin to absorb the substances and mineral salts in the air. The benefits quickly become apparent: a vital boost of energy effectively combats skin ageing and nervous tension. Relaxing on a seat carved from a single cedar trunk, both body and mind unwind. This method is 100% natural and effectively fights off aches and pains caused by an unhealthy life style and pollution. Relaxing in a salt-rich environment is a pleasant form of inhalation treatment that improves blood circulation, vein problems, skin rashes and, above all, ailments affecting the respiratory tract.
GROTTA POLARE (ICE CAVE): The purpose of this cave is to cool the body after having accumulated heat in the sauna. Flakes of ice fall from above into an ancient christening font. If you want to keep in good shape, the gym equipped with Technogym exercise machines, such as Kinesis, Exercise Bike, Cardio Wave, Treadmill, Synchro, Weights, Stretching Mats is open throughout the day from 8 am to 8 pm.
Having a massage is one of the easiest ways of getting, or keeping healthy. On account of the extraordinary effects of massages, our spa offers a variety of massage techniques carried out by qualified staff in our massage cabins. Anxiety and stress vanish under expert masseur hands. A good massage improves blood circulation, relaxes muscles, aids digestion and stimulates the lymphatic system, thereby eliminating toxins. These benefits, combined with the pleasant feeling of being pampered rapidly create a magic and marvellous sensation of wellbeing.
Only using products from Officina Profumo Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella we have created a large range of treatments: relaxation face cleansing, special face cleansing, male face cleansing, anti-age massage, manicure and pedicure, waxing, scalp massate and mask, shampoo and set.
Since time immemorial, wrapping the entire body, or part of it, in a substance containing special properties has been a popular wellness technique. After this treatment, the guest then floats on a thermo-spa bed, (but not in direct contact with the water) thereby experiencing a sensation of fullness similar to the one we once felt in our mother’s womb - like being suspended in a warm, timeless atmosphere. The body wrap can be a single treatment or combined with a massage to boost its beneficial effects. These are the fruit of a long process of preparation of mud with various properties and different colours in contact with our Sant'Orso mineral water, which originates at a depth of 450 metres close to the Bellevue.
