Health – the market of the future: leading spas in Europe rely on water applications from Dornbracht

ISERLOHN Health and wellness are two of the largest trends in society today – and will become more important in the future. As our daily challenges continue to grow, our focus moves to the preservation of physical and psychological well-being. More people are creating small experiences of regeneration in their everyday life, whether it's enjoying a spa day or a quick relaxing treatment in-between business meetings. Health and wellness centers are experiencing a true boom, and hotels are responding to the trend by expanding their spas with appropriate applications. Numerous exclusive resorts rely on product solutions from Dornbracht: the premium manufacturer enriches renowned spas throughout Europe with unique water experiences and soothing treatments for mind, body, and soul. The megatrend of health and wellness has long been the reasoning for developing new products and system solutions at Dornbracht. For years, the manufacturer has researched individual needs and personal rituals in bath and spa. The knowledge gained is used to create innovative ways of dispensing water. With intelligently-controlled water applications, Dornbracht has succeeded in generating special added value for health and well-being: individual scenarios either relax or invigorate the senses, restore inner balance, or provide new energy. This is made possible by, for example, Sensory Sky, Vertical Shower, Horizontal Shower, and Foot Bath – applications that are centered around Dornbracht’s Ambiance Tuning Technique and which are featured in a variety of spa and health hotspots across Europe.

Among them are renowned health centers such as Lans Medicum in Hamburg and the recently opened Lanserhof on Tegernsee Lake. Well-known hotels, like the Four Seasons, and small, exclusive boutique hotels and spas, also rely on Dornbracht – in Zurich, London, Paris, Istanbul, Milan, Amsterdam, Moscow, and Copenhagen. They are united by the promise of outstanding quality, perfection, and a unique experience of water.

Health and well-being as a result of exquisite water experiences

With the Sensory Sky shower experience, Dornbracht offers a sensual combination of rain, mist, light, and fragrance. Inspired by weather phenomena and moods in nature, the shower application’s scenarios have a cleansing and liberating effect like an intense summer rain.

In the Vertical Shower, different types of water jets and outlet points are combined into soothing choreographies. The water hits your body with large, sparkling drops or stimulates your shoulders and back with a strong surge.

Horizontal Shower provides a unique and relaxing water massage while lying down. Six Water Bars create different scenarios while your body is gently warmed by the heated horizontal area.

Foot Bath provides a pleasant reflexology stimulation. The scenario-capable unit can massage the soles of your feet, warm, or refresh you with specific temperature changes and dispenses individual Kneipp showers that enhance physical well-being. The effect is not limited to the feet, but is felt throughout the whole body.

These applications are controlled using Smart Tools – digital control elements that regulate the temperature and amount of water at the touch of a button. The intelligent systems have useful pre-settings and features that generate added value, increasing comfort and quality of life – whether in a spa or in your own home.
