The Thermal Experience
The Beaux Rêves thermal experience consists of alternating hot and cold with periods of relaxation in between. Please shower before beginning your Bêaux Reves Nordic Circuit and stay hydrated with water. Visit our riverside nordic spa in the Laurentians to experience a truly relaxing getaway.
Hot • Cold • Relax • Repeat
Begin your Nordic circuit in one of our saunas for 5 to 10 minutes. We have a Finnish stone sauna, a eucalyptus steam room (with cold shower) as well as a new dry sauna that boasts spectacular views of the river. This will raise your body temperature, open up your pores to release toxins, relieve tired muscles and mental fatigue, reduce tension and stress and provide an overall feeling of well-being. It is also a healthy way to promote healthy skin and can be beneficial for certain skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne problems.
Combined with a healthy lifestyle, regular sauna sessions can contribute to weight loss and a feeling of well-being.
10 to 60 seconds in cold water.
From May until November you can take a plunge in the river, otherwise you can choose from our Nordic waterfall, steam room cold shower, changing room cold shower or during the winter months you can roll in the snow! This part of the circuit close the pores of your skin and leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated!
20 to 30 minutes of relaxation.
Alternating hot and cold cycles will stimulate blood circulation, releasing adrenaline which leads to the secretion of our “happy hormone” serotonin. Now it’s time to find a quiet place to sit back and enjoy the benefits of your thermal experience.
Repeat the cycle 3 times to maximize benefits.
A relaxing massage during a Nordic Spa day is a great addition and you will feel like you are on Cloud 9!
Insurance receipts for massage therapy are provided.
It is important to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water throughout your Beaux Rêves Nordic Circuit. Drinking alcoholic beverages is not recommended during the cycles.
The thermal experience (Nordic Circuit) is not recommended for people taking certain medication, if you are pregnant, suffer from a heart condition, high blood pressure, respiratory problems, angina, diabetes or any other health issues.
