Welcome to the Outdoors
Based in a private secluded garden our outdoor facilities include an infrared Sauna (up to 4 people), Cold Shower, Wood-fired Bath (two guests at a time) and sunbathing chairs, for an additional £50 to add to any full Spa Days.
The human body is often overwhelmed by pollutants and toxins, which are found everywhere from the air we breathe to the water we drink. When toxins accumulate in our bodies without any effective route of elimination, they get increasingly dangerous and can contribute to cancer. That’s why detoxification is a one of our key principles of non-toxic alternative cancer treatment and a key aspect of our holistic approach at The Old Dairy Retreat.
Unlike the traditional dry sauna, which relies on heating the body indirectly through warming surfaces within the sauna, infrared saunas emit heat that is directly absorbed by the skin. As a result, the heat waves are able to penetrate deep within the muscle and tissue, creating a rise in core body temperature at a much lower ambient temperature than the traditional sauna. It is this key difference in heating methodology that gives the infrared sauna its ability to create an environment that promotes a detoxifying sweat at a much lower temperature, unlocking a variety of different health benefits, such as:
CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME TREATMENT
DIABETIC SYMPTON RELIEF
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
Soak your body in our natural material, non-chemical wood-fired bath full of steamy hot water, luxurious seaweed and Himalayan salts with specially selected aromatherapy oils, spiced mud or hand-harvested seaweed, surrounded in a private and secluded garden for simple tranquility. Feel warmth in chilly bones, melt away tense muscles and cleanse and soften your hard-working skin. Rest your mind whilst gazing at cotton wool clouds or a sky full of stars. Two people can use the bath at any one time.
