Body, Mind & Soul – Well Being Beauty

I heard so many good reviews from people before me who have visited the Scandinave Spa in Whistler, B.C.  Here’s one more.

I finally got the opportunity recently to check it out myself.  It was a dream and I didn’t even have a problem keeping quiet – no talking zone.  So there’s no need to go with anyone but yourself.  You will enjoy the peace and tranquility of relaxing within a peaceful spruce and cedar forest overlooking Whistler’s incredible mountain vistas. And breathe in fresh mountain air.

It’s great to get a massage from one of several registered massage therapists on site but if you choose to, you can just relax in one of the most beautiful natural settings in British Columbia.  In between going hot and cold but in a good way.  They have a spectacular 25,000 sq. ft. outdoor spa with a newly expanded building.

This is the most unique health and wellness spa.  You can enjoy hot baths (also known as hydrotherapy), wood burning sauna, eucalyptus steam baths, refreshing Nordic waterfalls and a relaxing massage.  To enjoy the full health benefits of the Scandinavian baths they suggest repeating the following sequences 3 to 4 times.  Warm the body for 10-15 minutes, followed by a refreshing (I would call it cold) rinse for 20-30 seconds and relax for 15 minutes.  My day ended falling asleep on a hammock under the trees on a perfectly overcast day.

So what can be better?

Ahhh…the additional benefits.

In addition to cleansing the body, it stimulates blood circulation and releases endorphins.  Oh I love to let those guys loose whenever I get the chance.  All of the senses are awakened; muscles are soothed and a sense of well being emerges.  Calm yet invigorated.  I like the Yin and Yang of all that.  One breath at a time.
