Men also deserve care!

This message has been posted on 14-06-2016

People who say ‘beauty treatment’ say ‘women!’ But is this really justified? Research shows that the male skin is on average 20% thicker than that of a woman. The hormone testosterone causes men to produce sebum in larger quantities then women. Sebum makes the skin greasier, and as a result, men are more likely to suffer from pimples and blackheads. In addition to the higher levels of sebum in proportion to women, men will also produce more sweat, causing the male skin to fluctuate more between two extremes, from a greasy skin to a greatly dehydrated skin. As if that were not enough, most men opt to shave daily. Especially after shaving with a razor blade, the skin may exhibit irritation.

Reflexology is not a cure, but a way of stimulating the self-healing ability of the body and mind. How does this work exactly?

Bamboo body massage

Bamboo body massage

This message has been posted on 29-10-2012

This massage has also been around for centuries. It is based on the Chinese principles of life, taking into account the various elements. Using Chinese bamboo stalks of various thicknesses and lengths, the masseur gets down to the task. The massage treats the nerve endings in your skin and the surface muscles. This has several beneficial effects.

The salt massage stamps have their origins in the Arab world, where Bedouins used the warmth and minerals of Dead Sea salts to heal skin conditions. Our massage is based on this ancient massage technique handed down from father to son.

The face is massaged using smaller and thinner sticks of bamboo. As in the body massage, here, too, pressure points are stimulated so that minor complaints such as headaches can be treated. The massage is very relaxing, so that both body and mind recover their balance.

Spa pedicure

First you enjoy a luxurious foot bath, and then your feet are scrubbed to give you lovely soft skin. Then follows the normal pedicure, and at the end you can opt for either a heavenly foot massage or an application of nail polish. Great fun!

Mineral facial treatment

Mineral facial treatment

This message has been posted on 23-10-2012

The main component of this treatment consists of the use of rhodolite, a mineral that hydrates your skin and stimulates the production of collagen. It is thus an ideal treatment for fine wrinkles and lines. During this treatment, extra attention is paid to the contours of the eyes, and a special eye mask and massage are applied.

Spa manicure

The spa manicure also includes a peeling treatment to give you silky-soft hands. Then your nails will be filed, cuticles trimmed, etc., and finally you can opt for either a hand massage with a hydrating mask or an application of nail polish.

Treatment with salt massage stamps combines the use of salt balls and pressure point massage, as the name indicates, and is thus a mixture of the two approaches. Small salt stamps made of Dead Sea salt are warmed up in warm massage oil and then used to massage the face and décolletage. A woooonder ful sensation!

As of today, the 10.15 pm pouring session in the icehouse sauna is being replaced by an Aroma Therapy Session. Jasmine extract is poured during the session. This pouring session is somewhat quieter than the normal sessions and is therefore an excellent way to end the evening.

If you thought that spending time in a sauna is not exactly a summer pastime, you’ll be surprised to learn that you couldn’t be more mistaken! A session in the sauna is always a beneficial experience, whatever the season. As you may have heard, regular sauna sessions can help boost your resistance, and since cold bugs are known to strike any time of the year, a sauna session during summer can help you ward off that nasty pack of bacteria to start with.

Floating will get you in a Zen-like state!

This message has been posted on 28-06-2012

Both at Thermae Boetfort and at Thermae Grimbergen you can indulge in a unique floating session. Our floating pool is a spacious bath (in a sizeable cabin) filled with water with a high salt content, comparable to the water in the Dead Sea. The water’s composition allows you to experience what it is like not to have to contend with the force of gravity! Your muscles will soon become aware that you will stay afloat, and as they do, your whole body begins to relax. Even your breathing will become more peaceful.

Very few people seem to know that you can simply call to Thermae Boetfort and Thermae Grimbergen for a treatment in our beauty institute and don’t have to go near the thermae at all. So, do drop by and treat yourself to a facial or manicure even if you have absolutely no interest in availing of our sauna facilities.
