Spa Experience at Energise Pentney
Our spa experience is based on the ancient Roman ritual of bathing, where the body is gradually heated, and then cooled. Make your way through our heat rooms, and in to our heated outdoor vitality pool, before cooling down with a monsoon shower, and experience true relaxation for body and mind.
The Romans liked to commence their bathing sessions in the ‘Tepidarium’ before progressing on to the hotter ‘Laconium’, which was normally heated to 90°C. We’ve reinvented the Tepadarium and have added the benefit of natural aromatherapy essences to further sooth and relax tired minds and bodies. The Aromatherapy Room is heated to a comfortable 30-33°C - warm, but not normally hot enough to induce perspiration.
Operating at a temperature not exceeding 50°C, the heat of the Saunarium is less severe than that of the Sauna, with humidity at around 30-40%. Conditions provide the benefits of both Sauna and Steam, for those who prefer their bathing experiences in a less demanding environment. Natural aromas are introduced in to the Saunarium to further enhance your experience.
Salt Vapour Room
A further enhancement of the Steam Room, the Salt Vapour Room has a typical operating temperature of 40-45°C, with almost 100% humidity. The beneficial quality of ‘softer’ heat, and increased humidity, is augmented by the introduction of saltwater mist, which emits negative ions to help alleviate respiratory and sinus problems. Saltwater mist also has a positive effect upon the skin, by strengthening its connective tissues to make the skin smoother, and help to relieve the symptoms of dry or sensitive skin. Warm saltwater mist also aids breathing, and helps to promote a sense of well-being.
Our herbal pine Sauna is heated to between 80 and 90°C, with a very low humidity level, around 10%. Benefits can include increased circulation, flushing toxins from your body, and of course, pure relaxation.
Monsoon Feature Shower
Rinse off between each heat experience in our monsoon shower, which offers either tropical warm, or Arctic cool, at the push of a button. Be sure to end your spa experience with an ice cold shower to invigorate your senses and ensure you’re ready for the rest of your day.
Heated Outdoor Vitality Pool
Step in to our outdoor vitality pool, heated to 36°C, and allow the water to wash away your worries. Regular use, through a combination of buoyancy, heat, and massage, relieves tension and stress. Buoyancy eases pressure in joints and muscles, while heat increases the blood flow to your muscles and accelerates healing.
