CVK Safira Spa & Fitness & Wellness Center
In a busy world we need to make the time to re-energise. For over five thousand years Spa Therapy has been used to revive and restore the well being of people all around the World.
Over the last few years the Spas across the board have really taken off and it’s both exciting and refreshing to recognise this and to include Spa Therapy in the new beauty therapy standards.
Water through the ages
Water has been associated with medicine, magic and religion since the beginning of recorded history. Balneotherapy, or medical treatment by bathing and immersion in water, especially in mineral water, is one of the oldest treatments known to man and is the foundation of the modern spa. The writings of many ancient civilisations – Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew, Persian, Chinese and of course Ottoman– all mention the healing properties of water.
Thus, several early cultures believed that water had both miraculous and spiritual power. Religion and water were closely connected for centuries.
Based upon a Ottoman-style domed and all-marble steam room with an moist atmosphere to either relax or stimulate our distibuished guests, with light and sound effects to stimulate the five senses. The body heats up to stimulate the blood circulation initiating the purifying and detoxifying process. Temperature operates between 42-45°C, ambient air temperature with steam. Duration 10 minutes/shower/back in for 10 minutes.
The Turkish Hamam Therapy is a prufication rituels.Using a bath glove to scrub your body in ahot and humid invironment helps ged rid of dead skin and opens up your pores.Your skin will feel like silk after this foam massage due to the heat, your body will sweat out any and all toxins.
The Art of Massaging
Massage by jet or human hands adds its own particular dimension to the treatment and to the pleasurable sensations of the spa experience. The skin and soft tissues are caressed, easing away toxins and tensions. Massage techniques are very personal and, being a one-to-one ituation, the client feels ‘special’, with a treatment tailored for them.
Touch has healing powers of its own, especially in the hands of an expert. Healers and the healed down the ages have had faith in ‘the laying on of hands’.
Positive and negative ions
The ‘feel good factor’ also owes something to ions in the atmosphere.
These various stimuli enhance the special event of bathing and spa attendance, producing changes in the psyche that make clients feel different and feel better. Such is the psychology behind the spa experience.
Stimulation of the five senses
Spas stimulate the five senses in the following ways:
● Sight The sight of water is relaxing. Reflections and moving water are fascinating. The spa environment and the psychology of bathing and spas – lighting, the glow of candles, the many hues of floating flower petals, or the colours of the water and the décor of the surroundings all play a vital role in the pleasant and soothing experience of bathing.
● Sound The swish and murmur of moving water when swimming, or the rustle of air through jets in water and the burble of bubbles – all these sounds are calming and comforting.
● Smell Additives such as essential oils give off odours, which can stimulate or relax both mind and body.
The smell of algae and seaweed recall trips to the sea and the sight and sound of roaring waves on the shore. The sea air is perceived to be bracing, fresh and clean.
● Taste A glass of water before and after treatment is refreshing and imparts a sense of cleanliness to the regime, in addition to countering any degree of dehydration.
● Touch Being enveloped in and surrounded by water is comforting and adds a sense of security. There are, again, echoes of the womb. Additives not only stimulate the sense of smell, they make the skin feel different.
Oils, algae, seaweed and the minerals in thermal waters, all play their part in changing the perception of the body image. These additives have a tonic effect on the skin and impart a soft, silky feel, which is extremely pleasant. Additives serve as a tangible reminder and reinforce the belief that water is of benefit to the body.
