    Salt and honey treatment and massage: soothing for the mind and soul

    To make the sauna visit a real experience, massages are a great way to feel soothed. A wholesome massage between two sauna sessions or at the end of a visit to the sauna is the perfect way to relax body, mind and soul.

    Many of Munich's M-Bäder offer different types of massages, which are performed exclusively by experts.

    Those who attach particular importance to the care of the skin when visiting the sauna can support this by applying salt and honey. To do this, apply salt or honey to the skin before going to the sauna. In the steam bath the pores are opened by the heat. This provides a deep cleansing effect on the skin.

    These treatments are offered daily in the steam baths of Munich's saunas.

    Health, relaxation and more: 4 reasons for a visit to the sauna

    • Taking a sauna keeps colds at bay: A little heat like this followed by a cold shock has the best effect on blood circulation - and thus positively on the metabolism. Your body purifies nowhere better than in the sauna.
    • The sauna is perfect against the blues: When it's cold outside, a sauna session does you a world of good. Even the Dude knows in Big Lebowski that the bathrobe is the dress code of the deeply relaxed - so dig out the robe and treat yourself to a few infusions.
    • A sauna session is an ideal reward for the mind and muscles: Everyone knows those little deals you use to motivate yourself: After cleaning up, there's the chocolate - and after the laps, the sauna awaits. The good conscience of having done something for the body makes for even more satisfied relaxation - and the heat is good for the muscles anyway.
    • Relaxation at any time of day: Whether you want to get your circulation going in the morning, wind down at the end of the day or relax before going to the movies - in Munich you're guaranteed to find a sauna for any time of day. Many saunas are open between 7:30 am and 11 pm.
