Luxurious Facilities at The Garage Spa
Don’t allow yourself to become run down by the stress of everyday life. Let off the gas, pull in, turn off your engine, rest and recharge your batteries at the Garage Spa health club. Our facilities are designed to offer relaxation at another level, with access to our soothing waters, secret garden, therapeutic steam room and treatment rooms. Tie off the day with some light afternoon tea or some appetising lunch and we will have you ready for the road again.
Steam Rooms are an incredibly old practice for relaxation and healing used by many cultures all across the world. Ancient Greeks and Romans used steam bathing as not only a form of relaxation but for social importance.
We run our steam room at a high comfortable temperature, allowing your body to naturally expel toxins. The steam loosens your muscles releasing any built-up stress and delivering Ultimate Relaxation.
The room maintains a high level of humidity that opens your pores and cleanses your skin of any debris. The high level of humidity strengthens the respiratory system and improves blood circulation, helping Lower Blood Pressure.
INDOOR HOT TUBS
As far back as 737 A.D, ancient cultures have been making use of Hydrotherapy, by means of hot springs. A large part of Roman culture was the use of communal bathhouses and thermal springs. Rudimentary Hot Tubs were created by adding heated stones to cauldrons of water. The Romans developed piping to carry hot water from the furnace to warm the baths, marking the early days of hydrotherapy.
Here at The Garage Spa, we have moved on from ancient traditions, offering Three Unique Experiences for your bathing journey.
The first stop is our Hydrotherapy Tub, perfect for unwinding and relaxation. From there immerse into our Hot Relaxing Bath and lose yourself. If you’re feeling brave, that a dive into our revolutionary Plunge Tub. Ideal for cooling down after our shepherd’s hut sauna or steam room.
AMBIENT SALT RELAXTION ROOM
Our Ambient Salt Relaxation Room is one of only a few halotherapy retreats in the north of England, featuring Salt Blocks Forged by Nature hundreds of years ago. Halotherapy involves inhaling air containing microscopic salt particles. The salt particles absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins from the respiratory system allowing you to breathe easier.
In 1843, Polish physician Dr Felix Boczkowski men working in the local Salt Mine suffered less from respiratory issues than the rest of the population. From there salt mines were used for Therapeutic Purposes primarily in eastern European countries such as Poland, Russia, and Ukraine.
Salt therapy is used around the world in hospitals and health spas to strengthen the immune system. It is clinically proven to provide Relief for Skin and Respiratory Conditions such as asthma, eczema, and psoriasis.
Lay back, relax and breathe in the benefits and enjoy the Warm Soft Glow that emanates from the salt blocks.
Our Secret Garden is the perfect location to relax and take in the country air after our treatments. Take a dip in our Outdoor Hot Tub, and feel the bubbles massage your body.
From there climb into our Shepheard’s Hut Log Sauna and experience the warmth of this detoxifying cocoon. Undergo full-body relaxation as your temperature rises, your pulse rate increases and your blood vessels dilate increasing blood flow to the skin.
After a calming sauna break, melt into a nest of cushions and blankets or wrap up in a fluffy dressing gown and sit in our hammock chair around the Open Fire Pit with a hot chocolate.
Our Secret Garden is perfect for enjoying the comfortable summer air as well as the crisp autumn breeze.
After our luxurious treatments round off the day with our car wash experience will have you back on the road Looking Fresh from the factory.
