Benefits of the Steam Room

Applying heat to your tissues increases your circulation or blood flow and causes your connective tissues to become more flexible. It also promotes a transient reduction in your joint stiffness, pain and muscle spasms. Using the steam room can help you reduce inflammation and congestion in your tissue. Heat therapy is used to treat many health complaints, including arthritis, muscle spasms, muscle sprains and strains.

Benefits of the Ice Room

Cold therapy is intended to reduce your metabolic rate, inflammation, circulation, muscle spasms and pain. Cold therapy cools your skin's surface and underlying tissues, which results in the narrowing of your blood vessels. This helps flush out toxins from your system. Enjoy the cold shower and apply the ice to the suffering area.

Benefits of hot and cold therapy

Hot and cold therapy is believed to exert a physiological effect on your body's pain gate mechanism, which temporarily alters pain signals traveling to and from your brain. This temporary reduction in pain is a welcome relief for those suffering long-standing complaints of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems.

Hot and cold therapy also helps clean the skin. The hot environment opens up the skin pours and your body sweats out the nasty toxins. The cold environment tightens up the skin, which closes the skin pours and leaves your looking fresh.

Benefits of the Salt Room

Salt crystal, thanks to its chemical composition, is an ideal source of negative ions, generally recognized as a source for creating a sense of well being. Negative ions are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron. They are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments such as near waterfalls, at the beach and our very own Salt Room.

High concentrations of negative ions are essential for high energy and positive mood. The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally they were found to help asthma patients. Later they were discovered to effect serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively affect reactions to sensory stimuli. The attendant greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced performance of mental tasks.

Your Safety, Our Priority

A gentle reminder that we are required to keep all fire exits clear should we need them in an emergency. We therefore ask that all bicycles/scooters, etc not be brought into the Club as they cause blockages to these access/escape routes.

We understand the inconvenience this may cause and apologise for this. As bicycles and scooters have now become the flavour of choice for personal transport, we have seen an exceptionally high usage of these in the Club and they do cause some serious blockages. Thus we ask that you please leave these two-wheeled friends of yours outside the Club when you visit us.

Thanks for your understanding on this important matter and in helping us continue to keep your Club a safe and enjoyable environment.

The VA Team
