I have a certain fondness for room Six Dragonflies, partially because my first memories of Watercourse Way are from being photographed in that room with my brother and parents for a newspaper ad in the early 1980s. But there are other reasons – the room is simply beautiful (it has changed quite a bit since that photo shoot) and features some great amenities (wooden hot tub, cold plunge, steam room).
Now I have yet another reason to appreciate Six Dragonflies – a waterfall. A new waterfall feature has been added to the remodeled steam room in Six Dragonflies that offers a soothing rain shower of cold, warm or hot water. Sitting in the steam room while cool water cascades on your head, neck and shoulders is a wonderful feeling that also offers therapeutic benefits.
Alternating hot and cold – such as sitting in the hot tub for a time and then taking a dip in the cold plunge – is excellent for circulation and can help alleviate joint pain and muscle tension. There are also benefits to the immune system and blood pressure. Watercourse Way utilizes hot/cold therapy in several ways, such as the alternating of hot and cold stones in our Hot Stone Massage and the use of cold plunges and cold-water showers in out private hot tub rooms.
And now fans of Six Dragonflies – including yours truly – can enjoy the combination of cool water and hot steam at once thanks to the overhead waterfall. Alternating hot and cold is a great way to heal the body and warm the spirit.
