The Oriental Thermal Spa of Hotel Metropole offers new ways to achieve wellness for the mind and body. The exotic corner of the establishment is enriched by new spaces where to rediscover energy through:
Each of these experiences is associated with a particular beneficial effect, to be chosen according to your specific needs.
In Ayurveda, even the relaxation offered by the Spa environments guarantees better results if it is guided by the needs dictated by Dosha.
Vata, Pitta and Kapha represent the three Dosha, a single individual may have a combination of two Dosha or even all three (tridosha).
Let's discover the characteristics of each Dosha.
The Vata Dosha originates from a combination of air and ether: this creates creative, hyperactive, and sometimes even restless individuals, characterized by a slender appearance. A lot of activity and frenetic rhythms make these individuals tire quickly, so the basic advice for this type of Dosha is to relax and slow down the daily routines. In addition, the skin of these individuals is often dehydrated and nonelastic; therefore, the proper treatment for Vata is to enjoy places with a hot and humid microclimate, which brings to the body and its specific needs significant benefits.
For this purpose, the advice for this Dosha is to undergo the Oriental Turkish Bath or the Thermal Grotto: both are hot-humid environments and thus promote water balance and subsequent skin regeneration.
Pitta is the Dosha characterized by a medium body built and great intelligence, as well as excellent organizational skills and precision. Water and Fire are the elements that make up this Dosha, which draws the greatest benefits for the body from staying in cold environments. Often, the Dosha Pitta skin becomes extremely susceptible to external damaging agents and gets easily irritated.
The Ice Cabin or the Ice Waterfall are the spaces dedicated to this Dosha: the temperatures in these environments range from 2 to 12 Celsius degrees, while always maintaining a high level of pressure and air ionization to allow the body to feel well.
The third Dosha is called Kapha, and it is what draws its energies from the union of water with the earth. Features of this Dosha are balance and tranquility, two characteristics accompanied by great physical strength and vitality. If an energy imbalance occurs, this Dosha may be subject to water retention, resulting in periods of sluggishness and laziness.
The best therapy to maintain the right balance between the energies of this Dosha is to stay in warm environments, but characterized by low humidity.
The Finnish Sauna is the environment from which this Dosha draws the most benefits. Here, in fact, the thermal transfer occurs only through the air: the dry heat helps to eliminate toxins and excess liquids, bringing notable benefits to the Kapha imbalance.
The Tridosha is characterized by the coexistence and harmony of the three Dosha. The ideal treatment for guests with a tridosha constitution is the one that can stimulate all the senses of the body through the use of different techniques and elements: the Oriental Spa's multi-sensorial waterfalls will bring immediate health to the Tridosha. Water on the body and chromotherapy stimulate sight and feel, supporting the needs of Pitta; the sounds and movement of the waterfalls stimulate the hearing, a sense associated with Vata, while the Fragrances and the Essences act on the sense of smell and taste, the senses of Kapha.
