The spa

A once-in-a-lifetime test

Commonly known as Jacuzzi®, the spa is the stuff of dreams. It's a whirlpool bath providing massages in a pool of hot water at 33 / 35°C. The combined action of heat, hydromassage jets and weightlessness stimulates the production of endorphins, the hormone of happiness, and provides instant relaxation. This experience is no longer a luxury or a scene from a movie! Laquatic spaces are equipped with star hotels offer access to their spas to outside guests.


Where to find a spa?

Aquatic areas are equipped with spas, and star hotels offer one-hour access to outside guests. Here you'll also find saunas and steam rooms.

To try sophrology is to adopt it!

The energy cut

Tried and tested

The energy cut offered at La Boîte à Magie salon in Plougonvelin is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. It is performed on wet hair with a full-blade 7 cm "coupe chou" razor, like the 7 notes of music. The razor emits a vibration in your hair, hair follicle, scalp and throughout your body.

The benefits of vibratory cutting: it energizes hair, giving it tone and volume. It stimulates blood circulation and reduces hair loss. It releases tension, fear and stress... It relaxes the head and body.

Some ideas for activities
