Rest and recovery are imperative to UnLocking the best version of YOU! Our Roman Bath is the ultimate ritual for recovery and optimal health. Switching between two extremities in temperature can produce several health benefits for both the body and mind. When the body is immersed in cold water, the flow of blood is directed towards our internal organs. On the other hand, warm water changes the flow of circulation outwardly, towards the skin.
History of the Roman Bath
Treating the tender wounds and tired muscles of Roman soldiers, warm mineral springs were atfirst relished solely for their medicinal benefits. As word soon spread about these baths of relaxation, this healing activity quickly became a platform for social activities and a place to create meaningful business connections. Varying in size and extent of the elaborate decorations, Roman Baths commonly contained a warm room, a hot room, and a cold room.
As the bather relaxed in the steam rooms while their pores slowly opened, they would proceed to the ice-cold Frigidarium and enjoy an invigorating immersion bath. Leisurely moving between the rooms, the bather would eventually enjoy a massage with indulgent oils and a scraping ritual with a metal strigil, to remove dirt and perspiration. Already closely resembling our modern-day spa culture, Roman bathhouses often contained open-air spaces for exercise, cosmetology, and dining.
