The Rasul ‘Ritual' is an experience not to be missed and involves the combination of the heat, steam, natural aromatherapy essences and mineral mud. The mud is applied by you onto your skin and the room infused with steam and natural aromatherapy oils, as stars twinkle from the ceiling in the darkened chamber. Mineral mud is excellent for drawing out toxins and absorbing waste materials from the skin, whilst also exfoliating the skin to leave it silky smooth. Treatments conclude with a tropical rainfall cascading from the ceiling, cleansing the skin of mud residue. The Rasul can be used alone or with up to four people together - the choice is yours.
A heat Treatment, using temperatures and high levels of humidity to cleanse and revitalize the body. Liquid fragrances, fresh herbs and essences are added to water which is sprinkled over sauna stones, adding scent to the air and flushing out toxins through sweat from the pores. The herbal essences are inhaled through the lungs to rejuvenate the body from within, whilst the soft moist heat aids breathing.
This involves the use of heat and pressure exerted by the water to gently massage the whole body, relieving muscular tension and stress. This invigorates the circulation and encourages blood flow while the feeling of weightlessness relieves pressure on the tired limbs.
Bubbling Jets of water gently massage the feet relieving tired muscles. The cuticles are softened and soles smoothed making it easier to remove rough skin. Feet feel revived and refreshed - like walking on air?
Combine hot and cold treatments with these unique shower experiences. Refreshing cold rain showers mixed with heat for stimulating and toning the body. The strong body jets are particularly stimulating and excellent for poor circulation. Feel the water all over your body as it drenches you in soothing tropical rain in huge droplets from the shower head, while essential oils are infused in the air. There are two ‘experience showers' in Lir Spa, one being a unique ‘whale-tail shower'.
A decorative ice fountain that produces cold ice flakes. They are rubbed over the body which stimulates the circulation, the lymphatic and immune systems, and is a great stress reliever. This treatment is best used after the warming effects of the heat experience.
Finish you experience by taking a relaxing and enjoy a cold drink in the tranquil surroundings of the relaxation room. This will help you to unwind further and you may even catch 40 winks!
