Dry sauna

Constructed of a combination of European ledgestone accent wall & aspen wood to promote healing, benches out of basswood for softness with alternating dark alder wood. Form fitting benches allow guests to feel more cradled than traditional upright stadium seating. Every piece of wood in the sauna was hand-planed, sanded and planed again to achieve an ultra smooth finish. Walls were triple sealed to help retain heat to ensure a constant temperature.

Steam Room

Features a ceramic mosaic penny tile with a motif of water falling from the ceiling. Tiles were hand cut piece by piece to produce the shape. The equipment for the steam room was designed to allow for continuous operation from beginning of the day to the end. Guests do not have to adjust any settings. Essential oils will be automatically dispersed within the steam to enhance the experience.  The highest standard equipment was installed to help filter out particulates in the water to ensure a very pure steam,  combined with a highly energy efficient building envelope meaning we could use smaller, more efficient machines.
