Cryotherapy has been used since the old times for longevity. It can help with athletic recovery, reduce fatigue, chronic pain and inflammation. It can also boost the immune system, accelerate metabolism for weight loss and increase collagen production for healthier skin.
At Peace & Quiet, you will be guided throught the journey in search of the benefits of Cryotherapy in the arctic bath with the view of the pristine nature.
Siberian Sauna Tent is very useful for releasing toxins and better blood circulation. It can help you restore mental health by promoting relaxation and having a positive effect on your sleeping patterns. Your brain will gradually reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol while increasing the levels of melatonin. Then you can immerse in the Arctic Bath.
Forest bathing Jokkmokk´s magnificent, oxygen-rich old and new growth forest is an ideal setting to mediate and explore the healing benefits of stillness. Guided meditation classes help to settle inwards, calm the busy mind and connect to the breath. Mindful time in nature, known as forest bathing, has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the effects of the stress hormone cortisol, elevate the mood and even boost the body’s immune response.
Having a Waterfront Massage is associated with relaxation. Stress diminishes, tightness is eased and both tension and pain become reduced during and after treatment. What you may not know is that it has a great impact on the nervous system, lowering stress hormones that contribute to the “fight or flight” response. It also helps to increase feel good neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, endorphins and oxytocin. Several studies have shown that massage can increase serotonin and dopamine levels by a whopping 30%.
Yoga & Meditation on ice Focusing on strength, flexibility and breathing, yoga is one of the oldest forms of exercise. Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, yoga has been changed over the years and is now a common activity. One of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind.
Hot Tub After just a few minutes of lowering yourself below the water surface, you can physically feel your body letting go of it´s tensions. This sudden awareness of your body can help interrupt racing thoughts and help you focus on yourself, slowing your breathing and giving your mind a rest from its overactive state. We can add aromatherapy products in your hot tub spa to further support your stress relief and explore how they can enhance your experience.
