Bathing process that consists of periods of perspiring in the heat and steam created by throwing water on heated stones. In combination with refreshing cold showers, sauna therapy is said to enhance the body’s immune system and relieve stress.
A Sanarium uses a lower heat than a Sauna, usually between 30 and 40 degrees and also uses humidity, around 50 percent (almost like a hot sunny day in the med). It's like a cross between a sauna and a steam room. As it's not as punishing as a sauna, it can be used for longer periods and is more effective for a warm down after a workout and is also better for the skin.

Via Sensus Reflexology Walk
The science of Reflexology is based on the fact that there are reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Feet, hands and ears are a microcosmic representation of the entire body as mirrored on them. Pressure on specific spots affect all organs and all parts of the body. The aim of Reflexology is to improve blood and lymph flow, to improve muscle tone, to increase flexibility of tendons and ligaments, to relieve stress and tension, to induce relaxation, comfort, pleasure and warmth, to create a link between head, feet and body, to change the state of awareness by including feet as part of oneself, to help nature to achieve homeostasis. Glands and organs which are underactive or overactive can be helped to return to a natural balance, the symptoms change and eventually disappear.

This room is also used for Yoga, Pilates and Meditation, and the pendulums around the room can hypnotically amuse you with their random patterns.
