Cooling me softly: SnowRoom offers ultimate feel-good factor

Nothing electrifies the senses and sparks emotions like encountering fresh snow. Whether young or old, it is hard to resist the desire to reach out and touch it, to form a snowball and feel its delicious cold tingle.

The SnowRoom combines the wow-effect of snow with the health benefits of cold. The treatment is based on the concept of contrast therapy: alternating hot and cold, between sauna and snow room, in order to sweat and relax.

In the Finnish tradition, the nourishing warmth of the sauna is always followed by a balancing cold treatment, which is essential to benefit from the alternation of warmth and cold. With the snow room, the guest exits the hot chamber only to transfer into a winter landscape, complete with powder snow.

Dry air refreshes the lungs, as the body cools down gently and very efficiently at -10 degrees C.

The human body can much better tolerate a dry cold than its damp equivalent like a plunge pool, so visitors to the SnowRoom also exit with a genuine feeling of wellbeing.

The benefits of contrast therapy range from a healthy stimulus for the cardiovascular system, a boost for metabolism to a strong immune system. There is a lot to tell about cold and health, learn more at indoor.technoalpin.com
