Self-care is a practice, not an indulgence, and Sense of Self, in Melbourne’s north, is the perfect place to take some time out for yourself.
There is bathing and sauna for those who want to get soaked, massage and spa treatments to give tired bodies some serious love, programs to go deeper, and plenty of space to just be. On the ground level is the bathhouse, with a large mineral bath (39°C), cold plunge (10-12°C), Finnish Sauna (80°C) and Hammam (steam room).
The weekday bathhouse pass offers up to 2-hours of rest and relaxation with full access to the communal bathhouse facilities. You might like to start in the large mineral bath, then the Finnish Sauna, rinse off and then hop into the cold plunge. Rotate around like this a few times then make your way to the Hammam to soak in stillness. There is also a cold shower in the Hammam when you start to feel the heat.
Just take a good book, a water bottle, a towel and your bathers to enjoy some blissful bathing in the city.
