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.

Feel refreshed and invigorated after a relaxing session in the warm humidity of our saunas, steam rooms, spa, jacuzzi, aerotone or at Edinburgh's only public authentic Turkish Baths.

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. Available at Ainslie Park, Dalry, Drumbrae, Glenogle, Gracemount, Leith Victoria, Portobello and Warrender.

A popular way to relax and soothe your muscles as the bubbles massage away the stresses and strains of the day or enjoy as a post workout. Available at Ainslie Park Leisure 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.

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.


Take the stress and strain out of your body. As a forerunner for the modern jacuzzi this experience will leave your body and mind refreshed and exhilarated. Available at Portobello Swim Centre.
