We’ve Rounded Up Brisbane’s Best Hydrotherapy Spas To Relax In

If you feel like you’re in hot water, you’re doing it right

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 9th October 2019

Water is such a wonderful thing. Whether you’re drinking it, boiling it, swimming in it or soaking in it, there’s nothing like some good H2O to cleanse your mind, body and soul. But for a water cure a step above the rest, take a page out of ancient books from Egypt, Rome and Greece. Hydrotherapy is the use of water at varying temperatures for health purposes. It relaxes muscles, relieves pain and increases the range of movement in your joints. And all you have to do to reap the benefits is sit and relax in one of the soothing hydrotherapy spas we’ve rounded up for you!

On Eagle Wings | Mudgeeraba

Just south from the hype of Brisbane City, find yourself in the mountains on the outskirts of the Gold Coast. Based on picturesque acreage, this is a retreat for the senses. On Eagle Wings is known for combining the treatments of health spas and beauty services for ultimate rejuvenation. Their six-person hydrotherapy spa has 103 therapeutic jets and is mineral based with no harsh chemicals! You circulation will be flowing, skin tone smooth and muscles relaxed in just 45 minutes. Why not treat yourself to an Infra-Red Detox Sauna after or a pedicure? Either way, your muscles and joints will thank you for the experience!

One Wybelenna | Brookfield

Relax and refresh amongst the beautiful surrounds of the lush frangipani garden at One Wybelenna’s outdoor Magnesium Spa and Pool. Exclusively yours to use for the duration of the treatment, sit back and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or one of the complimentary refreshments on offer in the secluded environment. Maintained at a balmy 38 degrees, the magnesium in the mineral-rich water is essential for your body’s wellbeing and can help with a wide range of concerns including sleepiness, relaxation, stress relief, detoxification and muscle relaxation as well as relieving pain from injuries and muscle cramping. At only $40 for 30 minutes when booked in tandem with another treatment, it’s a total indulgence that delivers real benefits.
