There are people trying to live in an attunement with lunar cycle or at least to explain certain phenomena, depending on whether the moon waxes or wanes. Auriga Spa at Velden, Austria, in its turn, offers its guests treatments, strictly complying with varying energies of the lunar cycle - even more, procedures available during one lunar phase are not available during another. Yet, spending there a whole of a respective lunar phase might be worthwhile to get the feel of a unique synergy of treatments and the lunar energy. Otherwise it might be difficult to tell whether your sweet-rosy sensations result from the moon energy or just from a two-hour ritual with aromatic rose oil, rose-petals and rose-oil-infused salt scrub and relaxing massage, with a cup of rose tea at the end. In any case, whatever the explanation might be, the effect is achieved, being the most significant indicator of a good spa.
Auriga spa, opened in May 2007, is located in southern Austria at Worthersee Lake and is housed at the splendid Schloss Velden, a Capella Hotel. Built as a private castle in 1607, over the years it has transformed into one of the Europe's largest and most favored summer retreats. The spa, being its comparatively recent extension, is designer by German architect Peter Silling. Although, not the interior alone makes it worthwhile visiting. A true reason is the excellent team of spa professionals, trainers and medical doctors, helping you put into practice much healthier lifestyle - if that is your purpose. The spa offers a powerful start to the New Year, providing its guests with personalized tools developed to help them sleep more soundly, eat healthier, and exercise more effectively. Auriga's fitness centre is equipped with the most advanced gear and a workout is guided by skilled personal trainers. A variety of classes such as Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are available in combination with unique outdoor programs - cross country skiing or climbing some of the nearby Alpine slopes. If only you are not a sympathizer of grand hotels, then again, maybe living in a large castle might seem somewhat dissonant in the context of harmony and intimacy created by the spa.
