The Aufguss consists of a sauna session where a professional who specializes in the Aufguss ritual, the Saunameister, enters the scene. The ritual begins with a complete oxygenation of the cabin. The Saunameister opens the door wide and lets the air into the cabin. He then pours essential oils and other herbs directly onto ice balls which are then placed gently on the hot stones.
Each oil exerts a specific influence. For a relaxing effect, the Saunameister will choose an essential oil of grapefruit or lavender. For a tone boost, a rosemary or clove oil is more appropriate. We have drawn up an Aufguss programme that emphasizes the effects and benefits sought in perfect harmony with the seasons. In summer, we select oils that bring freshness, in winter oils that strengthen the immune system and decongest the respiratory tract. In this way, it is easier for you to get your bearings and plan your session according to your needs.

Aufguss rituals represent a total experience of the senses. They foster in-depth action. Extreme heat, show and force are not necessary to achieve therapeutic or wellness goals. The types of Aufguss rituals practised at the Domaine Thermal focus more on the beneficial effects of plants and nature. Moreover, each "Saunameister" is specially trained for this practice.
