Embracing Wellness as the Seasons Change

As the leaves turn golden and the days grow shorter, there’s no denying that a new season is upon us. The transition from warm, sunny days to cooler, crisper weather can have a profound impact on both our physical and emotional well-being. But fear not; our wellness spa is here to help you navigate this change and embrace the beauty of the colder months. In this blog post, we’ll explore how our wellness therapies – floating, infrared sauna, cold plunge, and halotherapy – can contribute to your psychological wellness, physical vitality, and respiratory health.

Psychological Wellness: The Art of Floating

As the temperature drops and daylight wanes, it’s common to experience a shift in mood and energy. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a form of depression related to changes in seasons, affects many during the colder months. This is where floating therapy comes in as a beacon of psychological wellness.

Floating, also known as sensory deprivation therapy, offers a unique experience of weightlessness in a warm, Epsom salt-infused pool. This tranquil environment allows you to escape the world’s demands, reduce stress, and cultivate deep relaxation. Floating can help combat the winter blues by promoting a sense of serenity, mindfulness, and mental clarity.

Physical Benefits: Infrared Sauna and Cold Plunge

The physical benefits of our wellness therapies are particularly valuable as the temperatures drop. Our infrared sauna and cold plunge sessions offer a delightful contrast that invigorates the body and strengthens resilience.

Infrared Sauna: Step into our infrared sauna and experience a gentle, penetrating heat that warms you from the inside out. The therapeutic heat can help alleviate muscle tension, boost circulation, and reduce inflammation. It’s the perfect antidote to cold, achy joints and muscles, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and ready to embrace the day.

Cold Plunge: After your sauna session, take a plunge into cold water. The cold plunge not only heightens your senses but also stimulates your circulatory system. It’s an exhilarating experience that can enhance energy levels, improve mental clarity, and strengthen your body’s ability to adapt to temperature changes. The combination of hot and cold therapies can create a powerful synergy for your overall well-being.


Respiratory Health: The Magic of Halotherapy

With colder weather often comes the dreaded cold and flu season. This is where halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, takes center stage. Halotherapy involves the inhalation of micron-sized salt particles, creating a therapeutic microclimate in a salt room.

The benefits of halotherapy extend far beyond respiratory health, but during the seasonal shift, it becomes especially critical. It can help alleviate symptoms of respiratory conditions like asthma, allergies, and bronchitis, and bolster your immune system. As the air becomes colder and dryer, halotherapy can provide relief from congestion and soothe irritated airways, allowing you to breathe easier and feel more invigorated.


As the weather gets colder and the season changes, remember that your well-being is our top priority. Our wellness therapies are designed to support you through this transition, both mentally and physically. Whether you choose to float your cares away, embrace the benefits of infrared sauna and cold plunge, or indulge in the healing embrace of halotherapy, we’re here to help you thrive in every season.

Don’t let the chill in the air dampen your spirits. Embrace the opportunity for renewal and rejuvenation that the changing seasons bring. Join us at SoliVana Wellness Spa and let’s embark on a wellness journey together, one that keeps you feeling your best all year round.
