The water circuit

The different steps

Welcome inside an invented world, where "floating" is the key word. It's time to think about yourself, about your body, the one you live in, which, day after day, makes you experience different emotions and adventures. The water circuit repairs and soothes pains, giving your body and your mind infinite tenderness; that which envelops, which warms, which moves you. In 3 stages with inimitable benefits, resource yourself and learn to breathe again, in order to reclaim what belongs to you.

FIRST STEP
Hot
Duration : 10 - 15 minutes
Installations : saunas, steam baths
The thermal 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 while relieving muscular pains. 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. The worries of everyday life will evaporate little by little, as small droplets escape from your pores.
Advantages
ELIMITATION OF TOXINS AND IMPURITIES
The opening of pores with heat and sweat helps to eliminate impurities and toxins.
DILATION OF BLOOD VESSELS
Helps maintain low blood pressure and relieves muscle aches and soreness.
IMPROVEMENT OF IMMUNE DEFENCES
The state of "artificial fever" created by heat leads to increased production of white blood cells and antibodies.
SECOND STEP
Cold
Duration : 15 - 60 seconds full immersion (head included)
Installations : cold baths, cold showers, access to the river
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.
Advantages
ADRENALINE PRODUCTION
Accelerated heart rate under the action of cold water, increased strength and amplitude of heartbeat, improved blood flow.
CLOSING OF PORES
Improves the elasticity and therefore the appearance of the skin, while preventing other impurities from entering the skin whose pores have been previously dilated.
THIRD STEP
Relaxation
Duration : 10 - 20 minutes
Installations : relaxation areas, hanging hammocks, terraces
Effort should always be followed by comfort. 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. 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.
Advantages
THE "BUZZ"
Following the hot and cold stages which cause a kind of shock, comes an indescribable sensation of intense relaxation. Lie down, close your eyes and enjoy this sensory journey.
ENDORPHINS PRODUCTION
When the body starts to regain normal temperature and the heart rate stabilizes, hormones are produced, reducing stress and promoting sleep.

For an optimal thermal experience, repeat these steps 3 to 4 times.
