Holistic Spa Therapy – The Chromotherapy Spa Experience

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009


According to the ancient Indian art of the chakras, color therapy has the potential to heal. These days, bathtub, shower and steam shower manufacturers are inspired by this age-old practice to create a multi-color experience focusing in on specific colors to achieve relaxing effects. By using different color spectrum’s on specified body parts, chromatherapy – dictated by the chakras – takes the bathing experience full circle.

The technological components are mounted behind a solid brass ceiling grill. Look for systems with a remote control for the ultimate in comfort and convenience.
