Water therapy is an easy, at home remedy that can provide therapeutic relief from anxiety and stress. According to naturopath Dr Peter Bongiorno of Inner Source Clinic, it takes advantage of our body’s natural reaction to different temperatures in order to make our body stronger and improve brain function. Studies suggest it decreases the body’s stress hormones, like cortisol.
You can create your own wellness retreat at home with the right shower that offers a multitude of therapeutic benefits. A massage-like pressure targeting the neck, scapular and spine area, for example, can help reduce stress, while an invigorating rain shower can revitalize your mind and body.
Creating your own wellness spa space doesn’t have to mean a full bathroom renovation. You can update your bathroom by customizing your shower with the right tools and products, such as a new screen or shower head. A frameless shower screen, for example, will bring your space bang up to date, while creating a sense of spaciousness and luxury.
Consider a shower spray that offers a range of spray patterns, so you can customize your shower experience to suit your mood. Grohe Power&Soul showers offer four innovative spray patterns. You can combine the 4 spray patterns: GROHE Rain O2, Rain, Bokoma and Jet. They also feature one-click showering, which means you can switch between - and combine - different spray patterns creating up to 16 different spray combinations
You can also update your shower with a large overhead shower head featuring a full spray, which covers your entire body for the ultimate water therapy.
Complement your shower with calming décor and accessories that create a sense of calm and allows you to luxuriate in the privacy of your home.
Timber finishes combined with stone surfaces creates the sense of warmth and comfort. Consider a timber vanity benchtop, or complement a stone vanity with simple bamboo bathroom accessories.
Complete your wellness sanctuary with an abundance of leafy plants tumbling over shelves and windowsills – plants like peace lilies, mother-in-law’s tongue and English ivy have a purifying effect, absorbing bathroom toxins in the air.
