Enjoy thermotherapy

Step 1: Heat

[5 to 10 minutes] The water circuit experience starts off in the heat. Contrary to popular beliefs, the water circuit does not start in the hot baths, but rather in the dry sauna or the steam bath. With it’s analgesic properties, the dry sauna helps muscles relax all the while relieving muscular pains. Sit on the lower bench where the heat is less intense, drink lots of water… and then a little more! Let yourself be enveloped by the heat and evacuate your toxins in a completely natural way. This first step will not only benefit your body but also your mind. However, if you feel dizzy, exit the sauna or steam bath immediately. It is important to listen to your body.

Step 2: Cold

[15 to 20 seconds] The second stage of the thermal experience consists of a short dip in the cold bath. If it is too cold for your liking, the showers are also an excellent way to get through this step. For those of you who dread the cold: this stop is the shortest on the list but also the most beneficial to the body. It is a step not to be missed: it accelerates the heartbeat and tightens the pores of the skin. Combined with some heat, the cold not only stimulates senses, but it also promotes the production of white blood cells, relieves aches, all while increasing the production of well-deserved endorphins. Not so bad after all, right?

Step 3: Relaxation

[20 minutes] The third stage of the water circuit takes place in the relaxation areas. Try them all or pick your favorite from the sun loungers, beanbags or hammocks. Very hot baths should be avoided both at home and in our hot tubs (but feel free to soak your feet, always avoiding direct jets). From hot to cold, your body has already been through a lot. It is now time to stabilize your heart rate in a quiet and peaceful environment.

Treatments during pregnancy

Although pregnancy is not the time to try out thermotherapy for the first time, one thing is certain, pregnancy does not prevent you from accessing the Bota Bota water circuit. Even if you do not use hot tubs or facilities reserved for thermotherapy (ie saunas, steam baths and cold baths), you and your baby will benefit from a relaxing time: get comfortable in a hammock, adopt the fetal position in one of our large portholes or enjoy our beautiful outdoor pool.
