Welcome to Gwinganna's Wellness Lounge
Relax and immerse yourself in a complete mind and body experience. Our Wellness Lounge boasts a range of state-of-the-art wellness pods designed to support your recovery and relaxation, reduce stress, support better sleep, improve circulation, increase collagen production and aid detoxification.
Find out more about our LED light therapy, Infrared Sauna, the O2 Breathing and Meditation Chair, Recovery Massage Chair and the highly anticipated Somadome Meditation Pod, and how they each work to deliver you a truly restorative experience.
Somadome Meditation Pod
The Somadome Meditation Pod is designed to help you reconnect to yourself, calm your mind and find inner stillness. At the beginning of your session, you will be gently guided through a meditation of your choice whilst you comfortably settle within the peacefulness of the unique Somadome pod.
The Somadome Meditation Pod offers a truly unique and immersive experience, ideal for guests new to or experienced in meditation.
How it works
The Somadome is the first personal meditation pod that integrates guided meditation, colour light therapy, biosyntonie tiles and binaural beats, which can help guide you into a deep, relaxed state.
Colour light therapy
Somadome provides an environment conducive to the gentle and positive health effects of being immersed in light. Research shows that light helps regulate and control the autonomic nervous system and the production of melatonin and cortisol, two hormones critical to sleep, health and wellness.
The spectrum of colours promotes healing by stimulating hormonal and biochemical processes in our bodies. The colours of the dome have been carefully selected to promote certain mental and physical benefits that complement the goal of your Somadome session.
The binaural beats (audible sounds and musical frequencies that are perceived by your brain and entrain it toward a particular state of mind) help you to relax deeply. A comprehensive review of brainwave entrainment studies reveals the use of binaural beats to reduce insomnia and headaches, improve response to exercise, improve concentration in hyperactivity disorders and help reduce anxiety and depression.
After your session, you may experience benefits such as:
- Mindful relaxation
- Improved mood
- Pain reduction
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced insomnia
- Decreased stress
LED light facial therapy
A LED Light Facial is a soothing, non-invasive treatment that uses therapeutic light energy to help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your skin's natural health.
How it works
The deep penetrating LED light stimulates collagen and elastin production within the skin for a more radiant, youthful appearance. Just a 15-minute treatment can help to stimulate cell and tissue regeneration, improve fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne breakouts, redness and inflammation, and improve overall skin elasticity and texture.
By practicing self-care and self-love, consciously looking after our physical wellbeing, we can create a flow-on effect on our emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
By harnessing the power of light, our LED Infrared Sauna heats your body, rather than the air around you, as do traditional saunas. The Infrared Sauna can penetrate deep into your muscle tissue, allowing more effective detoxification from the inside out.
How it works
The unique combination of infrared heat technology and colour light therapy helps to restore physical and mental balance through increased circulation and detoxification and assists with weight loss.
Get the most out of your session by selecting the colour therapy that best applies to you:
- Red - Soothing and soporific effect
- Yellow - Feel calm and relaxed
- Green - Maintain and support activity
- Turquoise - Relaxation and spiritual growth
- Blue - Stimulation and vitalisation
- Violet - Concentration and creativity
After your session, you may experience additional benefits, such as:
- Improved physical performance
- Reduced stress
- Increased focus & productivity
- Reduced blood pressure
- Improved heart function
- Mental recovery
O2 Breathing and Meditation Chair
Breathe slowly, deeply and more consciously with guided breathing exercises in an optimal oxygenation setting. The O2 Breathing and Meditation Chair is designed to relax and reposition the body to encourage diaphragmatic breathing - the breathing technique widely used in yoga and meditation practices.
How it works
Improving your breathing technique with highly concentrated oxygen helps to lower your heart rate, improve muscle stability and promote a deeper state of relaxation. Regular sessions in the O2 Breathing and Meditation Chair have also been shown to decrease muscle cramps, increase blood circulation, increase energy levels and assist with weight loss.
We spend a significant amount of time in the sympathetic nervous system, also known as our fight or flight response. By prioritising the breath and generating better oxygen supply to cells, we can actively restore our mind and body to our relaxed parasympathetic nervous system.
When our bodies are in this relaxed state of being, we digest our food well, enjoy good quality sleep, and achieve clarity and a better connection within ourselves, enhancing our overall health.
Recovery Massage Chair
Far from a traditional massage chair, the Recovery Massage Chair offers a personalised mind and body recovery experience.
How it works
The innovative body detection technology automatically adjusts the massage to provide full body coverage. Intelligent temperature control helps to evenly warm the body, helping to increase blood flow and circulation throughout the body.
Depending on your preferred pressure, have your kneading, knocking, tapping, shiatsu, and pummelling massage performed to your desire. Enjoy many mental and physical benefits, including reduced stress levels and muscle and joint pain.
