TAKE A TRUE THERMAL JOURNEY

A true thermal journey is designed to take you step by step, through a range of spa facilities to elevate and cool your body’s temperature.

The alternation between increasingly hot and cold temperatures is reported to stimulate and improve your circulation by increasing white blood cells, relax aching muscles, aid the flushing of toxins to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin and boost your immune system. The experience is also incredibly luxurious and invigorating!

Let us guide you through your thermal journey at Source Spa and Wellness...

STEP ONE

STEP ONE

Firstly, be sure to remove all jewellery as it can get very hot and burn your skin! Begin your journey by preparing your body and showering in warm water to help open the skin pores and cleanse your body in our luxurious contrast tropical rain shower, waterfall and massage jets.

Next, it's time to relax and take in the gorgeous views across Saunton Sands and beyond in our beach-view marine vitality pool. Filled with mineral-rich Dead Sea saltwater with powerful massage jets to work the whole body to eliminate muscular tension and improve circulation, providing a mini-hydrotherapy experience alongside many reported health and beauty benefits.

Now, let's refresh with an important cleansing shower; start with warm water as cold exposure causes the skin’s pores to close and could potentially trap in pool chemicals. Follow with a cold shower to bring your body temperature down. Some experts claim that the principle is 3 -1. You want to be in the hot water 3 times longer than the cold water, for example, 90 seconds hot, 30 seconds cold. Equally important is to hydrate with a glass of water throughout your journey.

Once cleansed, it's time to heat things up in our salt inhalation steam room, where the warm, gentle heat releases pure salt vapour into the air whilst you relax in the serene surroundings. Breathe deeply and slowly to inhale the healing saline atmosphere to help with breathing and relaxation. Hydrate.
