ZEN weekend



This weekend I visited the lovely Spa Ofuro in the Laurentian Mountains (north of Montreal) with my mother and my aunt. This place is so
relaxing! This spa has a Japanese style and is beautiful year-round surrounded by pagodas and Buddhas. The design is for thermotherapy. This is where you spend time in a sauna, steam bath or whirlpool until your body is very warm and then you plunge into the river or cold bath. After the cold bath you relax for 20
minutes in a deck chair or hammock. You do this 3 times and then you have a massage. What an incredible day. Since none of us dared to bring a camera into this bathingsuit only area, I used some pictures from their website.
