One of my favourite spa treatments is the steam room. They’re relaxing, detoxifying and awesome.

I was recently invited to try out the “Hydration Station” at Bronze Bliss in Lindsay. My assistant Niamh and I visited the tanning salon to check out what is described as a steam/sauna pod. It’s designed to hydrate your skin as well create an incredibly relaxing environment.

The pod is heated by infrared lights. It is UV free with a maximum temperature of 48 degrees. (FYI: I took the max temperature setting!)

What Is A Hydration Station & Do You Want To Try It?

You can customize the pod to whichever settings you wish:

  • The aromatherapy (there’s a few scents to choose from)
  • The length (20 or 30 minutes)
  • The degree of vibration (minimum to maximum.  I did a relatively low setting)

Overall I really enjoyed it. Watch the full vlog above, to get my instant reaction that I recorded right after the treatment!

What Is A Hydration Station & Do You Want To Try It?

It was like being in a steam room, but lying down, so it was easier to relax. I do think if you are claustrophobic that you may not like it, you are in a pod. There’s lots of room for your body to move within it and your head is exposed, but it may not be for everyone. *People with highblood  pressure or pregnant women are not recommended to use the Hydration Station.

The cost of the sessions vary depending on how many you purchase:

  • $35 per session
  • 5 for $125
  • 10 for $200

Bronze Bliss also offers “Hangover Sundays” where sessions are half price at $17.50.

    Thank you

  • I wanna try the hydration station with my girlfriend. My skin is always itchy and wondering if it would help with pain because of the heat.

    the last little while. I could really use something โ€‹like this to help me relax, but also get dehydrated.

  • I have wanted to try this since seeing it at Bronze Bliss! I stand my entire shift every day I work and to just relax in a pod of ecstasy that pampers my skin and joints truly would be bliss!

  • I would like to try this hydration station! Wondering if it would affect tinea in a good way? Or perhaps worsen it’s appearance? I guess there’s only one way to find out!! Lol. #bronzebliss is amazing! Love their beds and staff is always so friendly and helpful!!
