To make a small wink to the French spas, we named our section of thermotherapy “Eastman-Les-Bains”. All packages with accommodation, as well as our day packages, include unlimited access to “Eastman-Les-Bains”. Bathrobes and towels are provided at no additional cost, to access the baths during your stay. Surrender yourself to the benefits of hot and cold!
The benefits of alternating hot and cold have long been recognized in many countries. To get the maximum benefits, it is essential to respect the basic principles:
HOT: detoxifies the body and helps relieve mental fatigue, muscle tension, and stress.
COLD: Decreases body temperature, strengthens the immune system, and improves blood circulation.
REST: Maximizes the benefits of previous steps.
HYDRATION: Resumption of electrolytes lost due to sweating.
Leading figures of Eastman-Les-Bains, our two outdoor spas are an exquisite step in a thermotherapy session and the perfect complement to a day of treatments and relaxation.
Summer and winter alike, the temperature of the two spas are slightly different in order to suit all tastes and needs.
Guided sessions of stretching in warm water take place in the upper spa on a regular basis. Check our schedule of activities to find the next session!

At Spa Eastman, we have two Kneipp baths, a German hot/cold technique; one for the legs, and one for the arms. Each offers particular benefits. The one for the legs contributes to the well-being and soothes heavy and tired legs. It helps with circulatory problems, predisposes to relaxation, and improves sleep.
The arm bath can help to regularize the pressure, increase blood and lymphatic circulation, and may eliminate headaches and migraines. It stimulates the system which is why we suggest a 2-hour pause between the arm and leg Kneipp baths.
