Spa in Vosges, Wellness
Relaxation and awakening the senses
In line with our philosophy, the St Barnabé Hotel & Spa Wellness Centre is restricted to adults over the age of 16. Children are allowed to go to the outdoor swimming pool, which is heated from April to October. We have purposefully chosen not to use cosmetics that are usually marketed to beauty institutes for commercial gain.
Come and discover a Spa in Alsace, Vosges that is out of the ordinary, and take some time out of a normally hectic life to actually live. We will awaken each one of your five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
With our surroundings that are conductive to relaxation, meditation, revival and self-discovery, the Spa is based on an approach that focuses on the individual as a whole, in order to re-establish the balance that is so often lost between body and soul. The setting is simple and modest, and emphasises the beauty of the natural materials used, such as wood, stone and paintings. Water is an essential element, as are the rituals inspired by Oriental traditions that are reflected in our massages.
You can take part in meditation, breathing, stretching, Do-In or Qi-gong workshops, either individually, as a couple, or in a group. There are no fitness rooms with high-tech machinery here, but instead, unlimited access to a rich and diverse nature, where you can go back to basics in a pure and invigorating environment. You can partake in a wide range of activities, such as walking (Nordic or otherwise), running, mountain biking and various others, depending on the season.
We mustn’t cling on to alternatives, believing them to have the power to change society. Society will change when we let moral philosophy and ethics into our thinking. Each person has to work hard to attain a certain level of responsibility and conscience, but most of all, to enter into the spiritual dimension that allows us to open our eyes and see life for what it really is; a sacred gift that must be celebrated and protected. It is only then that we will achieve a simple state of being that is at one with nature.
