Sauna area

Taking a sauna is a tradition that stretches back over centuries, and with good reason, since taking a sauna regularly has a positive effect on your well-being as a whole. It strengthens the immune system, activates the cardiovascular system, relaxes the muscles, stimulates the metabolism, expels toxins from the body and leads to a lasting relaxed state. In order to stay active and healthy, regular visits to the sauna are to be recommended, even in the summer months. This helps the body to cope better with the high temperatures and makes you less susceptible to illnesses.

 

At the Asia Spa Leoben our multi-faceted sauna area combined with one of Austria’s most creative Aufguss programmes (German for infusion, Finnish löyly, a ritual involving creating steam by pouring liquid onto hot stones and circulating the air in the sauna) provides a blissful sense of relaxation for all our guests. Gone are the days when a visit to a sauna was just about building up a good sweat. At the Asia Spa Leoben up to 16 different, elaborately staged Aufguss sessions are offered every day. Our experienced sauna masters are constantly thinking up new ideas, pampering their guests with beneficial salt peelings, beer Aufguss sessions, singing bowl meditations and much more. The themes range from “Caution, hot!” for regular sauna-goers, via “Gentle skin-care” to “Entertainment”, making your visit to the sauna fun. After a visit to the sauna area enjoy the very special feeling of being “relaxed, full of vitality and as if reborn”.
