Spring has Sprung

June 27, 2016

Spring has finally sprung which means daylight savings is just around the corner.

It’s time to shake those winter blues and reset for the season ahead. What better way to welcome spring than to give your health regime the kick-start it deserves by getting out and exploring that beautiful backyard of ours.

Make time for a walk or cycle in the The Redwoods or perhaps being out on the lake is more your thing – with 18 to choose from we’re pretty spoilt to call Rotorua home! Breathe in the fresh spring air, marvel at the crystal-clear waters and indulge in some light activity. Whatever your activity of choice, there’s no better way to end it than by treating your body to a soak in the soothing geothermal waters unique to Rotorua.

Rotorua was built around thermal springs and for centuries people from near and far have taken to the waters to adopt hot mineral bathing and massage therapies as part of their wellness lifestyle. The waters from two natural springs, The Priest and Rachel Spring, feed into 28 of the mineral hot pools across four luxurious areas at Polynesian Spa.

The slightly acidic Priest Spring relieves aches and pains while the alkaline waters of the Rachel Spring features the antiseptic action of sodium silicate, nourishing the skin. Historically it was said that those who swam in the Rachel Spring waters would be blessed with ageless beauty

Experience the healing properties of Rotorua’s thermal mud during September with the signature therapy of the month at the Polynesian Spa Retreat. Designed for Spring, the mud wrap therapy is the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation. Enjoy the cleansing benefits of mineral-rich mud during a face masque and full body wrap before a full body application of moisturiser to leave the skin glowing. Followed by a dreamy scalp massage, this therapy is sure to shake your winter blues. Follow the link to find out more or book your very own Spring Indulgence Mud Therapy.
