Soak this Up – plunge, rejuvenate and regenerate

Our region is bountiful with the most beautiful and pristine rainforest waterholes, rivers, tea tree lakes, vast oceans and waterfalls.

But you can also gather in water and steam, sauna and soak away at day spas such as Kiva Spa and The Banya in Mullumbimby. Both of these wellness destinations offer water-themed experiences that are social, uplifting and affordable.

Infrared Saunas and Ice Baths are another rejuvenating way to soak up wellbeing. For infrared sauna and ice bath therapy offered in sublime surrounds, we recommend Nimbusco in the Industrial Estate. The Body Mind Life yoga and pilates wellness studio Byron Bay also houses an ice bath, a magnesium plunge pool and Infrared Sauna with a Himalayan rock salt wall.

We love Byron’s best biohacking wellness clinic, Quantum Uplift and even better, they level it up with Red Light Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Compression and Oxygen Therapy.

For a lush resort experience, we recommend you book the lovely herbal steam and infrared sauna at Eleme Spa Alternatively, Gaia Retreat offers a day spa in the Byron Bay hinterland where you can pair healing treatments with steam and sauna.

All of these therapies have long been used by athletes for recovery and repair. Infrared Saunas provide an effective way to gently cleanse toxins and heavy metals from the body through the skin while contrast therapy (alternating ice bath and sauna immersions) is beneficial for reducing inflammation and boosting mood and energy. Just the simple act of soaking your body in warm bubbling magnesium-rich waters is so replenishing. Whatever your choice, expect to emerge feeling rejuvenated and recharged.

What’s next? Comma Spaces a fabulous massage studio in Byron Bay will soon open unveil their bathhouse – we can’t wait!
