Chroma-Therapy: the colour of Relaxation
Many psychological studies have shown that our perception of colour can influence our mood. Do shades of blue make you mellow? Is green the Colour that soothes your soul? Do you feel alive in red? Whatever you signature colour, enjoy it to it’s fullest through the optional Chroma-Therapy Package in your Spa Crest Hot Tub.
Using our multifunction LED lighting technology, which provides 100,000 hours of light per bulb, Spa Crest Hot Tubs produce a beautiful spectrum of Colour options, and allow you to choose how you want your colours to shine. Using the control panel on your tub’s topside, you can easily select from options which include:
- Cycling through all of the Colours slowly and then pressing the selector button again to choose one colour
- Enjoying the soothing, “Slow Fade” option, for example fading from blue to green
- And there’s even a “Party Mode” which produces rapidly changing Colours for added fun
So whether you’re enjoying a solitary soak, or a spontaneous dip with friends, Chroma-Therapy is sure to enrich your spa experience.
Hydro and hydrothermal therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those in ancient Rome, China and Japan. Water therapy has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems.
The recuperative and healing properties of hydrotherapy are based on it’s mechanical and/or thermal effects. It exploits the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli, to the protracted application of heat, to pressure exerted by the water and to the sensation it gives. The nerves carry impulses felt at the skin deeper into the body, where they are instrumental in stimulating the immune system, influencing the production of stress hormones, invigorating the circulation and digestion, encouraging blood flow and lessening pain sensitivity.
When you submerge yourself in a bath, a pool or a whirlpool, you experience a kind of weightlessness. Your body is relieved from the constant pull of gravity. Water also has a hydrostatic effect. It has a massage-like feeling as the water gently kneads your body. Water, in motion, stimulates touch receptors on the skin, boosting blood circulation and releasing tight muscles.
Hydrotherapy and hydrothermal therapy are chiefly used to tone up the body, to stimulate digestion, circulation, and the immune system, and to bring relief from pain.
Water seems to have special powers in getting rid of stress and rejuvenating our body. It affects the skin and muscles. It calms the lungs, heart, stomach and endocrine system by stimulating nerve reflexes on the spinal cord.
Various case reports, observational studies, and a number of controlled studies provide some evidence of success in the use of hydrotherapy.
In a study of 40 persons at the University of Minnesota, 85% of the participants preferred a whirlpool bath to a still bath. Only whirlpool was effective in reducing the participants’ reactivity to stress although both still and whirlpool baths were effective in reducing anxiety
