What are the benefits of a spa?

Before diving headlong into the purchase of a spa, let’s take a look at some of the benefits. After a stressful day or intense sporting activity, a trip to the spa is ideal both to regain energy and to prepare for a good night’s sleep. The warmth of the water soothes joint and muscle pain, while the hydro-massage stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, helping to relieve and reduce blood circulation problems, water retention and cellulite.

Depending on your needs, you can opt for :
– A revitalising bath: 20-25 minutes in near-cold water (17-27°C).
– A relaxing bath: 15-20 minutes in warm water (34-38°C).

The little extra for even more relaxation: In your spa, depending on the options you choose, you can also listen to your favourite music and enjoy the effects of chromotherapy and aromatherapy fragrances.

Spas can have massage jets with different virtues (relaxing, toning, energising) and positioned in different areas, such as the back, legs and feet

5 questions to ask yourself before choosing your spa?

Before choosing THE spa that will fit in perfectly with your interior or exterior, it’s important to ask yourself a few key questions to make sure you’re making the right choice. Note that in this article, we’ll only be talking about rigid spas. So here are a few questions to consider:

  1. What’s your budget?
    Rigid spas are more expensive than inflatable spas. They also represent a longer-lasting investment and can be enhanced with an infinite number of options. So it’s important to set a budget before you start looking. This will help you find options that suit your finances and avoid disappointment.
  2. Where are you going to install your spa?
    The location is crucial. If you’re planning to position it indoors, it’s important to make sure that the structure of your home can support the weight. If you’re planning to install it outside, think about the space where you want to enjoy it, as well as technical and climatic constraints.
  3. How many people will be using the spa?
    The number of people who will be using the spa can influence the size and number of jets required. It’s important to choose a spa that can comfortably accommodate the number of people who will be using it.
  4. What type of jets would you like?
    Spas can have massage jets with different virtues (relaxing, toning, energising) and positioned in different areas, such as the back, legs and feet. It’s important to consider which areas you want to massage and choose a spa with jets that meet your needs.
  5. What features do you want?
    Spas can have a variety of features, such as chromatherapy, Bluetooth speakers, overflow, headrests, etc. It’s important to consider the features you want. It’s important to consider the features you want before making your final choice.

The INFINITY 220 Spa has a circular bench and hydro-massage jets. Available from Hydropolis

1/ Spa INFINITY 220, the round spa, compact and easy to install

This model from Glass 1989 combines the features of a portable spa with those of an overflow spa. It can be installed on the ground without a dedicated technical compartment, as it houses the entire system under the spa shell. All you need is a water supply and access to earthed electricity close to your spa. The water overflow channel is hidden by the edge of the decking, a solution that accentuates the elegant design of the spa while guaranteeing stable support when entering or leaving the spa. The water collected in the overflow channel is collected in compensation tanks positioned under the spa, which guarantee continuous filling to keep the water at a constant level.

A wellness experience combined with extremely easy installation makes this spa truly special. It combines the emotion of total immersion in the water, typical of the OF Spa, with the simplicity and functionality so appreciated by a Portable Spa. Its simple, uncluttered design will fit discreetly into any space. Available in matt white, the INFINITY 220 Spa is also available in the RAL colour of your choice.

The Infinity range makes it possible to offer an overflow spa in all situations where the installation of a traditional overflow product is not possible or too expensive. The spa is installed in the same way as a traditional portable spa, making this solution ideal for domestic or semi-professional use where there is no dedicated technical space in which to install the Spa-Pack and spa compensation tanks. The INFINITY 220 Spa can accommodate up to 4 or 5 people for a unique and emotional total immersion experience. It is also available in a rectangular format. This portable overflow spa has a circular internal seat. It is equipped with different massage zones for a total wellness experience.
It can be installed indoors or outdoors, on the floor, recessed or semi-recessed.
