Recharge your batteries in Hévíz with the power of nature

It's not enough to take a holiday, you need more to regain your energy. Experiences that fill you with happiness. A comfortable bed for a restful sleep, a walk or a relaxing exercise in the fresh air, the chirping of birds, the rustling of tree leaves in the wind. 

Relax your muscles in the hot thermal water, which, thanks to its temperature of 32-36°C and mineral content, will unnoticeably have a beneficial effect on your muscles and joints, while the time spent in the water will effectively relieve stress at all times. Swimming moves your entire body and is an unrivalled benefactor of the spinal column. Life-giving water is a pillar of the body. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water every time you can. 

When it comes to food, enjoy having your health looked after. Opt for fresh, seasonal ingredients or foods, whether you go to the farmers' market or a cosy restaurant. 

Move every day. When it comes to recharging your batteries, being active in the fresh air is one of the best ways to do it. It clears the airways, activates circulation and metabolism. 

And last but not least, go offline. When you only have a few days to relax, it's enough to become available to those who really matter to you.

The benefits of saunas

The benefits and importance of saunas have been recognised since ancient times. However, research shows that saunas were first used by Aztec and Mayan Indians. Its basic principle is to alternate between hot and cold temperatures. Since the spread of wellness facilities, there have been countless forms but Finnish saunas are the most common. The name comes from the Finnish word "savu", meaning smoke. The temperature ranges from 90 to 100 °C and the humidity is 6-15%. Because of the low humidity, it is also called a dry sauna.

During a sauna session, not only your body but also your soul and spirit are purified. Take your time, enjoy the pleasant warmth and feel the weight lifted off your shoulders. The beneficial effects of the hot air can be enhanced by adding essential oils, and a coarser sponge can be used to remove dead skin cells 

The ten commandments of the sauna

  • Start your bathing with a shower, but go to the sauna dried.
  • Place a sheet or towel on the seat before sitting down.
  • While you are cooling off outside the sauna, do not leave your towel on the sauna seat, you will take up space from someone else.
  • Make sure that infusions are performed by a bath attendant or sauna master, thus preventing the mixing of scents and possible disputes.
  • It is not advisable to open the door of the sauna right after the infusion - enjoy the hot air instead.
  • In many sauna areas abroad, a signal light is lit up letting people know that a sauna infusion has just been performed.
  • All the drops that are poured on the hot lava stones are inhaled by evaporation in the sauna, which is why some liquids are not suitable for infusion, for example, because of their ammonia content.
  • It is not recommended to take a sauna with a heavy stomach after a meal or after drinking alcohol.
  • Do not wear jewellery in the sauna, as it can cause burning and blistering of the skin.
  • Do not go to the sauna when you have a high temperature, because while it prevents the development of certain diseases and symptoms, it can aggravate the fever.
  • Try to keep an eye on the other sauna users, because a careless person may misjudge his/her health and physical condition and need help or even emergency assistance.
  • Take a break between each session to give your body time to cool down and then you can start all over again. Enjoy the silence in the sauna and let the other sauna users do the same.

Sauna types - What is each sauna type good for?

Infrared sauna

A deep heat treatment in which 80% of the energy generated by infrared radiation heats the body and only 20% heats the air. The infrared rays enter below the surface of the skin, where they loosen the subcutaneous waste products and toxins that are released from the body through the sweat glands. The temperature ranges from 45° to 80°C and the humidity from 45 to 50%. It is less exhausting than a Finnish sauna. What it is good for: burning calories, boosting the immune system, detoxifying the body, treating cellulite, relieving stress.

Aroma cabin

The air in the cabins is scented with essential oils, which can have a relaxing or refreshing effect. Even our ancestors used various essences of essential oil plants: in religious ceremonies, for healing, body care, seduction or embalming. The essential oils are inhaled and absorbed through the skin. In addition to their soothing effects, they inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, clear the respiratory tract, increase blood supply to muscle tissue and skin, reduce inflammation and pain, and have a beneficial effect on the excretory and digestive systems. Depending on the fragrance, it can be used in several ways. Citrus is invigorating and good for skin problems, jasmine is antibacterial, lavender is relaxing and antiseptic, chamomile relieves stress, sandalwood can be used for eczema and respiratory problems, orange is refreshing.

Steam room

The Turks, Greeks and Romans all knew the beneficial and pleasant effects of steam baths. The temperature of the steam bath used by the Greeks ranges from 43° to 48°C. The traditional Turkish steam bath has a humidity of 100%. The humidity of the Roman bath is lower: 70%. It is recommended to spend 30-40 minutes in the steam once or twice a day. The traditional Roman steam baths consisted of several rooms with different temperatures, such as the caldarium, the danarium, the tepidarium, the laconium and the frigidarium. The Turks introduced the bath called Hamam, where, in addition to sweating, the "patient" also received a massage. A popular Arab bath was the Rasul, also known as the Arab bath. It was a mud bath, where the body was smeared with mud and the cabins were filled with herbal steam. The indications and contra-indications are the same as for saunas.

 

Beauty comes from within

but sometimes it's good to help nature a little bit. A nice make-up, a new hairstyle, manicured nails and you feel more confident in everyday life. But other practices can also make you look years younger, at least in spirit, when you look in the mirror after a pampering treatment.

Active ingredients for the skin

Many wonderful creams and serums are used in Hévíz, but the medicinal mud of Hévíz also has many beneficial effects. Combined with the sulphurous thermal water, it tightens, softens and detoxifies the skin. In Hévíz, you can try several face and body treatments that use either the medicinal water or the mud as one of the active ingredients. In addition, you can choose from a wide range of natural ingredients and the most modern skincare technologies to suit your skin type and needs. You can combine facial and body treatments with bath therapy or even light and oxygen therapies. And for those who want an even more effective firming treatment, laser treatments can be the perfect solution.

Body treatments, body contouring with or without plastic surgery

Most people would like to get rid of the extra pounds, pesky body hairs and possibly their crow's feet. In Hévíz, there is a solution to these problems too. The beauty service providers offer a variety of solutions for small and large interventions with lasting results. Even very specific intimate problems can be treated with plastic surgery.

Hairstyle, make-up and beautiful nails 

Looking well-groomed is important for everyone, and if you need the perfect look for an occasion, you had better leave it to the professionals. Experienced specialists can be found not only in hotels but also in many other places in the town. It's worth making an appointment in advance at the smaller beauty salons and hairdressers, and of course, at the spa and beauty departments of the hotels.
