Hydrotherapy is the use of water, either internally or externally, to maintain health and prevent disease. Although it was the Romans who introduced spas throughout the Roman empire, modern hydrotherapy is commonly attributed to Father Sebastian Kneipp (1821-97), who believed that water would ‘dissolve, remove and strengthen’. Dissolve matter-containing disease, remove diseased matter from the body and strengthen the body by restoring cleansed blood to the tissues and maximizing circulation.
Enter into an exotic herbal steam temple under 1000 stars to take part in a traditional Arabian ritual. An innovative body treatment of exfoliation and cleansing, using natural sea salt, mud and herb-scented steam. This treatment helps to cleanse the respiratory system, smooth the skin and detoxify the body, whilst revitalizing your energy. To complete the ritual, a warm tropical rain pours down from the dome of the Rasul and as the mud is gently washed away, so is every last drop of tension in your body.
Water is drawn into the suction fitting by the pump, and then pressurized water is forced out the discharge line where it is compressed through a small orifice in the jet increasing velocity. The water is released into the jet body. As the water is expanding in the jet body, it creates a vacuum. The air that is drawn in from the surface of the tub through the air control is mixed and blown out and into the spa. The millions of small bubbles mixed with hot water directed over the person using the Spa Jet, creates a very soothing massaging effect called "Hydrotherapy”. The air control valves are what control the amount of air injected into the system, allowing the spa hydrotherapy effect to work.
Our Spa Jet has the following treatment options:
• Ozone Treatment
• Aqua Massage
• Weight Loss, Detoxification and Cellulite Reduction
• Re-mineralise, Moisturise and Hydrate
• Seaweed Body Treatment Bath
Chromotherapy or Colour Therapy is the science that uses the colours to modify or to keep the vibrations of the body in a frequency that results in health, welfare and harmony.
Both humans and nature need the light of the sun to live. In this process, man and nature receive the solar light which is broken up into seven main rays, and then distributed to our physical and energetic bodies. If there is an in-balance of these colours in our energetic field, this reflects on our physical body as a mental or physical illness.
The luminous energy of colours is of the same nature as the electromagnetic energy of radio and television waves. Just as the transmitters and receptors of radio waves, humans are also transmitting and receiving these energies in the same way. Therefore, we can emit the energy of a certain colour by simply thinking about it. Each colour possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration has characteristics related to different physical symptoms.
Each colour relates to one of the 7 main chakras. Therefore in Chromotherapy, we work on the chakras that display irregular variation of energy to re-establish the energy balance. To accomplish this, we of energy to re-establish the energy balance. To accomplish this, we apply the corresponding light to the chakra that needs to be adjusted. This application of light can be made by the use of coloured light bulbs, coloured lenses, crystals or simply the mind.
To summarize, we have the following colours that are represented on the 7 main chakras:
Violet - Deals with heightened and elevated themes, assist in meditation and elevation. Relates to the subtle plane.
Lilac - Deals with intuition and subjects of the mind (more rational). It connects to the head.
Blue - Deals with speech (inhibition to express yourself). It connects to the throat.
Green - Relates to the intermediate plane. It connects with the lung and heart.
Yellow - Deals with nervousness and agitation. Relates to anxiety in the material plane, auto-expression. It connects with the stomach, liver, intestine, and other organs.
Orange - Related to the conjugal hereditary succession and situations in the material plane. Connects to the sexual organs and kidneys.
Red - The densest of all planes (or material). Deals with the structure of a man in its path. It connects to the legs and feet.
History of floatation therapy
Floating and swimming are as old as our species, but floating in a floatation therapy tank with warm Epsom Salts was invented by John Lilly in about 1964. He was interested in meditation and in the physiology and psychology of the meditative state when he started working on the effects of sensory deprivation. He discovered that his experimental subjects, his students, enjoyed the experience of floating and reached levels of relaxation only seen in deep meditation. In fact within a few minutes a floating person can reach a depth of relaxation which takes many years to achieve by classical meditation techniques.
Floating is a natural and healthy way to relax.
The benefits of floatation therapy
Floatation therapy is such a simple idea that some of the benefits seem too good to be true. But they are real and scientific research has validated the health giving and performance enhancing effects.
It is well known that relaxing sleep in bed is essential to good health and often the best way to recover from stress and illness. Our bodies have amazing powers of recuperation and we just need the chance to relax to let these powers work.
Floating in a flotation therapy tank is even more relaxing. The deep relaxation state achieved allows the body to recover from stress. Pain is relieved. Blood flow is stimulated through all the tissues, natural endorphins are released, the brain gives out alpha waves associated with relaxation and meditation. It feels good.
Usually it takes perhaps fifteen minutes to enter the first deep stage of relaxation, and the remaining 45 minutes of a typical hour-long session seem to pass quickly and effortlessly. The benefits begin during this stage but continue after you leave the tank and for the rest of the day, and the next day, your body and mind feel refreshed.
Controlled tests have shown that athletic performance is improved by floating before an event. The quality of creative work is improved by floating before working. Students are able to remember facts and to concentrate better after floating. Chronic joint pain such as in arthritis is often relieved for prolonged periods after floating. People with "jet-lag" and stress or anxiety, express feelings of relief and improvement. They state that three hours in a float tank is worth a whole night's sleep.
Floating in pregnancy
Midterm pregnant women often find considerable relief from pain and stiffness, particularly while floating prone, with elbows on the floor of the tank and chin cupped in hands. In this position the fetus is fully floating and the mothers back and pelvic girdle are released from load.
