As the winter chill sets in, there’s no better time to pamper yourself with spa-tacular activities. From traditional saunas to healing forest walks, here are five must-try wellness activities to kickstart your January.

1. The Hot Box Sauna

The Hot Box Sauna has redefined the traditional sauna experience, seamlessly blending it with the untouched beauty of Ireland’s lakes, seas, and rivers. After the successful launch of Bective in the summer of 2021, the team decided to build another haven of relaxation in Rosses Point, County Sligo.

“Our goal, wherever we go, is to connect the power of the traditional sauna experience with the raw beauty of an Irish lake, sea, or river. Having spent time researching, designing, and building the sauna at Bective ourselves, it has been very special seeing it come to life,” shares the team. The Hot Box Sauna promises a relaxing and soothing experience, allowing you to unwind amid Ireland’s breathtaking natural wonders.

2. The Healing Forest

For those seeking solace in nature, The Healing Forest offers Guided Forest Bathing Walks in their private 33-acre woodland in Kilternan, Co. Dublin. Led by Certified Forest Bathing Guides, these walks provide a unique opportunity to submerge yourself in the healing powers of nature.

Forest Bathing, an evidence-based practice originating in Japan and Korea, has been proven to reduce blood pressure, boost the immune system, and alleviate stress. The 2-hour guided walk invites participants to mindfully connect with the forest, engaging their senses and fostering a deeper appreciation for nature. The experience concludes with a gratitude or tea ceremony, providing a gentle transition back to daily life.

3. Voya Seaweed Baths

Step into the world of organic luxury with VOYA Seaweed Baths, a rejuvenating experience that harnesses the power of hand-harvested Atlantic seaweed. Located at an idyllic setting, this 90-minute treatment includes a seaweed bath, bespoke massage, VOYA Seaweed Eye Treatment, homemade seaweed delicacies, and a calming organic herbal infusion.

With organic seaweed known for its moisturizing properties and healing benefits, this treatment promises to detoxify the body, increase circulation, and promote overall well-being.

Located by the sea in Balbriggan, Salt Cave Paradise offers a modern Salt Water Therapy & Relaxation Centre. Providing a range of therapeutic options, this center is designed to revive and rejuvenate visitors. The soothing atmosphere combined with the healing properties of saltwater makes it an ideal destination for relaxation and wellness.
