Rejuvinating in the Spa

Rejuvenating in the Spa

To all our Talk Spas readers; we are here today to address the spa fanatics, members of the spa industry as well as the home spa enthusiasts of the world to let you know that the spa is here to stay. In the past year we may have not seen the spa industry or the number of home spa projects grow in number, but we did see the diversity in services and product offerings expand to a new high. Out of nowhere new markets have become much larger than before for the spa industry, including Medical Spas, Pet Spas, Teen Spas and even Baby Spas. In the past year, outrageous, amazing and extremely expensive spa treatments had their day in the limelight, while more custom, personal and home based spa services have continued to increase in popularity.

Las Vegas continues to be a hotbed for amazing new spas and more and more people are now using the quality of the spa amenities to choose their next resort or cruise vacation. While destination spas are still very popular, the home spa and more specifically the inclusion of a luxury steam shower with advanced technological systems continue to increase home values in these tough times.

Make no doubt that times are still tough for the spa industry as we have seen many close their doors and go bankrupt, but be clear that the surviving day spas, spa product manufacturers and resorts will come out of this downturn stronger than ever before. People across the world are beginning to re-discover how and why it is so important to treat your mind and body to spa treatments that provide relaxation that ultimately improves your overall health and well being. We can assure you that even if the tough times are not yet behind us, the light is visible at the end of the tunnel, and the light will please your senses and rejuvenate your body and soul.

Aromatherapy Oil

Aromatherapy Oil

The word “aromatherapy” was originally coined by the French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse in 1920. In a laboratory accident, Gattefosse set his arm on fire and immediately thrust it into the nearest vat of cold liquid, which happened to be lavender oil. Instantly he felt soothing relief and watched as the burn continued to heal quickly, with no inflammation or scarring. The profound healing benefits led him to a lifetime of research in a field that he termed “aromatherapy”.

As a clinical herbalist and aromatherapist, I have seen the profound healing effects of essential oils in my 15 years of practice. Therapeutic-grade essential oils can work to heal common ailments where other medications fail. Essential oil blends can be used to treat many conditions, without the side effects that synthetic chemicals may cause. They work quickly and effectively to soothe pain and inflammation.

State-of-the-art Steam

Steam Shower ControlGone are the days of dial-up and black and white television. Consumers have moved on to the faster, more efficient, and more effective ways of the digital age where modern acronyms like HDTV and DSL are household names. Today, all parts of the living space are getting technological makeovers. ThermaSol is ahead of the curve in the bathroom with the only 100% digital Steam Shower System available on the market today. The upgrade wasn’t easy, and ThermaSol dedicated three years of intense engineering to revamp the products in their steam program; bringing every aspect of their Steam Shower to the digital era by incorporating 100% solid-state digital technology.

Steam ShowerAll other steam bath manufacturers use the decades-old analog technology. Analog steam shower systems operate via a unidirectional analog command where an electronic pulse is sent through telephone-style cables to the generator in order to command functions. Any added features like a music-system or lights must be run independently of an analog steam unit and requires an extra cable or cables. With no communication network in place to verify what the specific pulse is, the opportunities for error are endless. The system is also susceptible to uncontrollable influences like voltage spikes or lightning. This can cause the generator to activate and run; which can cause the destruction of a home’s interior and more.

ThermaSol’s 100% digital Steam Shower System provides the only networked system that contains 100% digital communication technology. Everything connected receives and transmits information to ensure that there are no reading errors as to what the command is. Expandability is also easy; features like the Serenity Light & Music System, and the Easy Start Control can be added by simply plugging them into the equipment, and will be detected by the controls to operate accordingly. With a ThermaSol 100% digital Steam Shower System, the bath is an oasis where luxury incorporates the most advanced technology; insuring reliability, convenience and safety.
