Hana Has Just Opened a New Extra Large Ice Bath and Sauna Room So You Can Take a Mate (or a Date)

Is hittting the sauna before immersing yourself in ice-cold water your idea of a good time? We have date night sorted.

Uber-chic Grey Lynn day spa Hana has been a go-to spot for Aucklanders looking for a little pampering or self-improvement in the name of wellness since it opened in 2020.

The range of treatments has become increasingly popular — particularly contrast therapy, the practice of swapping between an infra-red sauna and an ice bath set at a disgustingly chilly six degrees. While it sounds like a punishment, it actually has been proven to have numerous benefits including reducing inflammation, constricting blood vessels to redirect circulation towards vital organs, and boosting the metabolism to support weight management.

If you have a friend that's been encouraging you to give it a go — or a partner you've been keen to drag along — you can now have company while you engage in the hot-cold therapy. Hana has extended its offering with two additional rooms, including one with a larger ice bath, perfect for those visiting with friends (or an extra tall individual).

Relax and catch up in the sauna before challenging each other to see who can last longer in the ice bath? Sounds like a date made in heaven (for some particularly health-focused individuals).

Elevate the experience by opting for the four-step Sans Ceuticals Pro Facial Ritual during your sauna session, and finish things off with a shower ritual at the end — with luxe towels from Baina, of course.

Hana can be found at 18 Westmoreland Street West, Grey Lynn, Auckland.
