Rudding Park in Harrogate has introduced an oxygen pod in its rooftop spa offering, which is based on technology used at NASA.
The new pod, which sit up to six guests, uses oxygen concentrations levels up to 27% (dry air usually contains 21% oxygen levels) to help prevent signs of ageing and strengthen the immune system.
The new addition follows the launch of a sunlight therapy room at Rudding Park in January, as spa director Matthew Mackaness explains that the hotel is ‘always looking to evolve’.
Within the new oxygen pod, negatively charged ions purify the air, to stimulate the metabolism while dry salt inhalation helps respiratory system, promotes healthier skin and sounder sleep.
The air is treated with SeaClimate ultrasonic nebulizers which enrich it with a micro-fine, dry, velvety mist. The aerosols have the ability to penetrate deep into the respiratory tract and enter the body through the skin. The experience is like a walk near the ocean, only more intense.
Matthew Mackaness, spa director at Rudding Park says: “At Rudding Park we are committed to excellence and always looking to evolve and offer guests something new. We launched the Sunlight Therapy room in January to help guests overcome the challenges of long dark winter days and are now pleased to now introduce the Oxygen Pod to offer guests even more cutting-edge options for achieving optimum health.”
Rudding Park opened the UK’s first roof top spa garden in 2017. The hotel has 90 bedrooms and suites, a destination spa, two restaurants and a kitchen garden, private cinema, two golf courses and an extensive conference space.
It is owned by the Mackaness family and run by managing director Peter Banks.
