Looking for something a little less strenuous or to soothe your muscles after a workout? Or just a place to unwind? Taking some regular time out can improve your mental and physical wellbeing. The gentle moist heat in our spa facilities will relax your mind and body which can have a beneficial effect on your sleep and help to alleviate any aches and pains. There are lots of options across Edinburgh!
Sauna and Steam Room
Relieve stress, relax muscles, boost your immune system, cleanse your skin, improve your breathing and burn calories. A treat on its own or as a post workout. We have both sauna and steam rooms available at Glenogle, Leith Victoria and Ainslie Park, along with saunas at Dalry, Warrender, Gracemount and Drumbrae. If you're just looking for a steam room, we've got one of these, along with original Turkish baths, at Portobello Swim Centre.
The ultimate in relaxation therapy. Our authentic, original Turkish Baths at Portobello Swim Centre offer a totally unique experience and the perfect way to relax after a hard workout, or simply to de-stress from the pressures of modern life. Click here for opening times and prices.
Relax in the steam room where the high humidity will open pores, penetrate the respiratory system and ease tense muscles before you take a bracing dip in the plunge pool.
Then work your way through three hot chambers - Tepidarium (warm), Calidarium (hot) and Laconium (hottest) - allowing the warmth to continue its therapeutic effect on the muscles and skin. Repeat the cycle as often as you wish before cooling down in the Frigidarium.
