Turkish Baths and Health Spa – Harrogate
If you feel like you need to regroup and energise yourself after a particularly hectic and full on Christmas, have you ever even considered a Turkish Bath experience.
There are three heated chambers, starting in the warm room, the heat prepares your body for the hotter rooms. The intermediate room allows the warmth to continue its therapeutic effect of the musculature. Finally the hot room opens the pores and stimulates the circulation
After that take a deep breath and brace yourself for the cold plunge pool. The change in temperature improves circulation, flushes out toxins and provides a toning effect. After that you will spend 30 minutes cooling down in the relaxation room to round off your Turkish experience.
