Stress management

Ease stress and restore balance

Water therapy for stress management

Water has been revered for its healing properties for thousands of years in countries around the world. It has been used to treat skin conditions, poor circulation, inflammation, mental illnesses and even the common cold among other things. It is a well-known fact that water applied to the skin at various temperatures can be used to alter the mind and body in positive ways including helping to reduce the effects of stress.

When you are stressed, your heart races, your breath quickens, and your muscles tense in preparation for action, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But when stress responses fire continuously, you could be at risk for a variety of health problems. It’s important to find effective ways to reduce your stress and lessen its effects on your health.


Creative regeneration

Health benefit:

  • Mental relaxation

Time of day: Whenever you feel the need to give your thoughts free rein. Enjoy a moment of perfect peace to energise your creativity.

Application: The large, soft water droplets of the TEMPEST flow mode swirl around your body like a cleansing thunderstorm. Your thoughts become clearer with every drop and you feel light and liberated. Switch to the AQUA CIRCLE flow mode to be surrounded by a bubbling rain curtain. Your head stays clear – and if you look up, you get a unique and meditative sensation of infinity. An ideal state for shaking off blockages and adopting a new perspective.


Relaxing back massage

Health benefit:

  • Back muscles are thoroughly relaxed, tension is released

  • The unruly torrent of thoughts gradually dies down

Time of day: Highly recommended in the evening, to unwind after a stressful day.

Application: Set the massage flow to a high intensity and a hot temperature in accord with your personal preferences. Enjoy the intense massage flow for 1 to 2 minutes and feel the tenseness in your back gradually diminish. After this intense phase, regulate the intensity and temperature down to what you consider to be a moderate level and a pleasantly warm temperature. At the start of the application, you can loosen your back by moving sideways in the massage flow. It is also very beneficial to put both hands behind your head and lean back slightly.


Relaxation shower

Health benefit:

  • Relaxation for body and mind

Time of day: Particularly suitable in the evening, to round off the shower ritual.

Application: Start with a lukewarm shower, and gradually increase the temperature and volume of the water. You can feel the tension and stress falling away, degree by degree.
