Kohler Waters Spa Launches Bathing Treatments Designed to Enhance Mood during the Colder Months
//With many Brits reporting to suffer from winter blues owing to the colder weather and shorter days, Kohler Waters Spa at the Old Course Hotel has launched a range of bathing treatments designed to increase mood and boost energy levels.
Research consistently demonstrates that hydrotherapy has a significant impact on mood enhancement by releasing elevated levels of endorphins, the body’s natural anxiety and stress busters. The use of therapeutic bathing also promotes a deep meditative state.
Guests at Kohler Waters Spa can achieve this heightened state of wellbeing through a range of inimitable Kohler bathing experiences employing marine-based ingredients, such as seaweed, that treat skin conditions and relieve muscle aches and stiffness, therefore improving overall state of mind.
Treatments include a relaxing, 90-minute Sok Overflowing Bath, which involves floating in a continually over-flowing bath tub filled with seaweed. The heat from the bath aids the body’s natural detoxifying process whilst the mineral rich Voya seaweed, harvested off the coast of Ireland, relieves muscle aches and joint stiffness, including rheumatism and arthritis.
For a truly indulgent experience, guests can opt for the spa’s signature treatment, Lavender Rain. Warm rain pours down from the Kohler Custom Vichy shower whilst guests are treated to a nourishing body scrub using fresh lavender, marine salt crystals and eucalyptus. Lavender also works as a natural mood booster by relieving stress and helping achieve a good night’s sleep.
Guests can also make use of Kohler Waters Spa’s extensive hydrotherapy facilities in order to get those endorphins flowing, including the invigorating cold plunge pool, the heated hydrotherapy pool providing therapeutic bathing and the refreshing ice fountain. There is also a steam room providing deep muscular relaxation and detoxification, a Finnish sauna and a rooftop garden with hot tub.
Situated just metres away from West Sands Beach with commanding views of the Scottish coastline, the Old Course Hotel is situated in an idyllic location from which to enjoy some mind-calming walks in the fresh sea air, another natural mood enhancer. The Fife coastal path takes in 135 kilometres of stunning coastline, or guests can simply enjoy a gentle stroll along West Sands Beach. The hotel also has a fleet of bikes for hire, complete with chunky tyres ideal for a ride on the beach or the coastal path.
Kohler Waters Spa at the Old Course Hotel offers a winter spa package from £420 including an overnight stay at the hotel based on two people sharing. The package includes a one night’s stay on a B&B basis, one facial or massage each, prosecco and canapés, one spa café lunch for two, and tea and cakes in the afternoon.
