It takes a little courage, but the well being is granted! For an unforgettable wellness day in Trentino!
In every Wellness center on the Dolomites, at the end of each sauna, there's always a refreshing shower (and something more), the cold well is designed precisely because of this, an ancient Nordic method that gives immediate benefits! How is it done? It's simple: you get out of the sauna, take a short refreshing shower and then you go, you use the cold well or the Scottish shower! If instead you want to cool only a specific part of your body there is also some ice to use for a gentle massage.
The well is a pool with cold water (12/13°C) in which you immerse yourself for ca. 30 seconds. The well recreates the effect of the original bath in a hole in the ice or in the freezing water of a river. Alternatively, at ACQUAin Spa & Wellness you can also find the bucket for the Scottish shower.
The Scottish shower is a bucketful of cold water from above that you can spill onto your body by pulling a rope that's connected to the bucket.
At ACQUAin Spa & Wellness there's also a small waterfall of crushed ice, useful during the cooling. You just have to take the ice from the waterfall and gently massage it on your body, starting from the lower extremities. You have to be careful not to drop the ice you used on top of the waterfall. The eventual extra ice must be thrown under the waterfall, near the nozzle.
