What to Expect from a Nordic Spa

What to Expect from a Nordic Spa

Nordic spas also go by the name of Nordic bath circuits, Scandinavian spas, or simply hydrotherapy. While every spa develops its own unique treatment, they all work on the same principles. The basic principle is to relax the mind and body by moving between extreme heat and extreme cold to balance the body.

The treatment typically begins by working up a sweat in a sauna to help promote blood circulation, then immediately after submit your body to an extremely cold body of water or snow. This can take the shape of a cold river, waterfall, shower, or possibly even snow. The cold works to close your pores, reduce inflammation, and boost your immune system.

The final step is 20 minutes of relaxation so your body returns to normal temperatures. Many say you should repeat the process two or three times for full benefits. Doing so is said to leave both body and mind feeling rejuvenated and free. However, the locals for these spas also add to the intrigue.

They are typically located in secluded areas sprinkled with snow, tucked into the side of a mountain surrounded by light forestry resulting in an aesthetically pleasing site. Regulars of Nordic spas often speak of the relaxing trip which is almost as beneficial as the treatment itself in their minds. Some areas offer massages, healthy meals, and have extensive lists of other treatments available.
