Nova Holistic Spa offers Hobart’s only outdoor, all weather, therapeutic thermal/contrast (hot & cold) therapy facility set amongst a tranquil Urban Oasis Zen Garden with beuatiful aromatic herbs.

Unique Urban Oasis Facilities

  • a soothing Magnesium Spa – soaking in a magnesium spa helps to replenish magnesium that is lost through our modern way of life. It allows for magnesium to soak through the skin into the lymph and blood vessel system thus distributing throughout your body more efficiently.   
  • a rejuvenating & relaxing full spectrum Far Infrared Sauna – our top of the range full spectrum infrared sauna is different to other saunas in town. It uses mid, near and far infrared wavelengths that penetrate up to 5mm into the body as opposed to a normal infrared sauna’s 1mm. This highly functional and proven heating technology helps to maximise detoxification, recovery, improve skin conditions and rest deeper. It also comes with built-in LED Chromotherapy (and controller) that helps with Homeostasis, which is when the body maintains a stable internal environment or psychologically when, under varying stressors, the person maintains a stable mental state. Combine all of these factors with an inbuilt essential oil disperser your body will revel in a sensory heaven.  
  • an invigorating Australian made ODIN ice bath – with ozone sterilisation system & set to a constant <10 degrees 

Choose from communal (max 6ple); private (1-2ple) or private group (3-8ple).

From $80 (inc gst). More details below.

Benefits

Therapeutic thermal therapy integrates the cellular health benefits of exposing your body to hot and cold water/environments one after the other to help actively engage the body’s thermoregulatory system.  Through a sequence of hot & cold sequences this radical change in temperature creates a pumping effect on our blood vessels which boosts blood flow more efficiently. It also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which helps to:
  • slow heart and breathing rates
  • lower blood pressure
  • promote better digestion
  • reduce stress
  • strengthen the immune system
  • improve cardio fitness & circulation
  • improve focus
  • recovery from sore muscles
  • enhance muscle recovery
  • improve sleep
  • boost energy and last but not least it’ll help lift your spirits

How To Use the Urban Oasis

  • It is a requirement that all guests shower and scrub their skin before using any Urban Oasis facility.
  • With the Urban Oasis facility, you can cycle through the facilities at your leisure, or use our specially curated protocols based on your needs, be it to just relax, rejuvenate, or recover. 
  • Refrain from wearing makeup, sunscreen, oils, perfume, or antiperspirant (as this will interfere with the pH balance of the magnesium spa/ice bath and will prevent your body from sweating out toxins & for the infrared light to penetrate through your skin effectively in the sauna).
  • Listen to our Nova Holistic Spa wellness playlist and hire our safe water resistant headphones whilst using the Urban Oasis facilities. Or pair to your own device.
  • So we can best accommodate your needs, all guests are required to sign a waiver and to let us know of any special needs or contraindications prior to using our facilities
  • As with most things in life, consistency and commitment is required to see results. Ask about our 5 for 4 session packages. 

When you use the sauna, think about what Chromotherapy light you may want to use ahead of time. Light therapy can transform your mental well-being and Homeostasis – which is when the body maintains a stable internal environment when, under varying stressors. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light. Here’s more information on the different healing benefits for colours on the spectrum.
