I wanted to visit places where I could practice more self-love, discover natural beauty remedies and speed up my recovery. We are looking to find more hip and healthy places in Stockholm, we booked a spa date at the Recovery Hotspot Stockholm HEAT. HEAT by Sophia Lie at Nobis Hotel Recovery Lounge Nobis Hotel – Room 155.
Recovery Hotspot Stockholm HEAT by Sophia Lie at Nobis Hotel Review
HEAT was founded by Sophia Lie in 2018 as Scandinavia’s first full-spectrum infrared sauna lounge. In downtown Stockholm. HEAT was founded by Norwegian model Sophia Lie as an antidote to a stressful and hectic lifestyle. HEAT offers private, full-spectrum infrared sauna, compression therapy, LED light therapy and LPG massage.
After a decade in the fashion and beauty industry, the constant travelling and intense schedule had started to take its toll on her. Sophia found out that well-being is more than just eating healthy and exercising regularly, and soon infrared sauna therapy became a fundamental part of her recovery routine.
HEAT by at Nobis Hotel Review
The body – as well as the mind – needs to recover and detox properly. This is precisely what I was looking for on my recovery holiday adventure. My body and the medical world have been making me depressed when I look at it. I see that it’s not recovering fast enough for me.
So if you follow us, you know I have been working on getting My Body Back by trying out different Lymphatic Treatments. At our sessions at HEAT, we booked the LPG Massage + LED Mask for 60 min, IR Sauna for 30 min and the Compression Therapy + Cryo Facial for 10 min. So our Sunday afternoon was booked and busy.
HEAT utilizes full spectrum infrared light in combination with medical grade, built-in LED light therapy. A session at HEAT works in-depth and generates a genuine, unique boost that relaxes, recharges and reenergizes both mind and body.
LPG is a mechanical tissue and lymphatic drainage massage that naturally sculpts the face and body. We were placed in the hands of their lovely therapists. Our experience was fun; we learned about treatments while creating enjoyable creative content. In addition, they blessed us with Heat merchandise in mint green which I loved. I wanted to get something mint green before we left because it seemed like the colour of Stockholm. It reminded me of a present from my aunt when she returned from the city many moons ago.
The Heat LPG machines employ a combination of vacuum suction and rollers to soften tissue, causing the release of excess fluids and toxins. Once released, these are naturally expelled from the body through the lymphatic system. I was booked in for the Sculpt & Glow with the Ultimate Duo Infrared sauna + LPG. I was a bit scared when I walked into the room until they gave me a cute body stocking in mint green. At least I’ll look cute while healing my swollen body.
Sculpt & Glow with the Ultimate Duo Infrared sauna + LPG = next-level results.
LPG treatment is the ideal complement to your next infrared sauna session. Maximize your results by eliminating water retention, kickstarting circulation, reducing the appearance of cellulite and boosting your skin’s glow. When undergoing the treatment, my thighs felt tight, and I felt the machine more than the other areas. The lovely therapists told me that my thighs were holding onto water.
The lymphatic drainage massage motivated me to get back to the gym and eat better. Looking at my body made me converse with myself to have more willpower. Yet, be caring and listen to my body. I want to also detox all the pain medication out of my life. It’s also highly relaxing–which is why so many clients fall asleep mid-session, and I did too!
Could I stan the eat for 30 minutes? HEAT has one of Sweden’s first full-spectrum infrared saunas; infrared therapy is core to HEAT’s service DNA. Unlike standard infrared saunas, their saunas combine near-, mid- and far-infrared wavelengths to penetrate the skin and raise the core body temperature from within. This elevates the body’s temperature and produces a profoundly detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, even while the air around you remains cooler and more comfortable.
Their clients love infrared saunas for their wide-ranging health, mental and beauty benefits. Complementing the body’s natural processes, infrared therapy helps eliminate toxins, reduce water retention, lift metabolism, increase circulation and relieve pain. It’s also known to support the immune system, improve sleep patterns, and promote collagen production. But, most importantly, an infrared sauna generates a unique boost that relaxes, recharges and reenergizes both mind and body.
Above are all the reasons I slept like a baby that night of our spa day. My skin felt rejuvenated. I did manage to take the heat by only stepping out to drink water. It was my island getaway in a steam room.
Compression Therapy is a targeted treatment designed specifically for the legs to promote circulation and combat fluid retention. Using compressed air, our compression pants squeeze and massage the limbs, helping to soften hardened veins and move blood towards the heart while liberating excess fluid. It also helps trigger lymphatic drainage, detoxifying and sculpting the body and preventing cellulite and varicose veins.
Athletes love compression therapy as a means of accelerating recovery and optimizing performance. But I spend too much time sitting behind a desk and noticing my varicose veins. So the compression therapy session was another great reason to nap while treating swollen and tender legs and feet.
LED Light Facial
LED Facials use LED light energy to unlock cosmetic and therapeutic benefits for the skin. Initially developed by NASA, LED therapy is renowned for its natural healing and anti-ageing properties. It’s been clinically proven to accelerate tissue repair, relieve pain, fight acne, and combat the signs of ageing.
How Does it work? Red and near-infrared wavelengths activate cellular turnover within the skin’s top layers, leading to increased collagen production, connective tissue and new blood cells, elevated micro-circulation and decreased inflammation. It sounds high-tech because it is. But remember the best part: it’s all-natural. Which means no needles, prescriptions or surgical procedures. Just pure, 100% safe, therapeutic light.
I was sceptical about this beauty trend. However, I’ve had a glow ever since. Friends are complimenting me on my skin even more. Healthy and glowing! I am grateful to the team at HEAT, who provided great hospitality and warmth from beginning to end. Another reason to Visit Stockholm. We will be back this summer.
