Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are the effects of taking a hot bath in a Home SPA?
- Body and blood temperature increases
- Increase in skin temperature
- Improved ischemia and anoxia of tissues
- Oxygen demand of the heart increases
- Reduce muscle tension and joint pains
- Helps to stimulate metabolism in tissues
2. How to obtain maximum enjoyment with a Home SPA?
Whilst having a Home SPA is both convenient and beneficial, it is equally important to have a relaxing SPA atmosphere in your home. You can achieve this by creating the ambience with the upholstery, lighting, stereo and design of the bathroom.
Also, apart from just the Home SPA, we recommend to add essential oils slowly at the same time. The fragrance produced together with the collisions of bubbles is relaxing and helps to reduce pressure as well as fatigue.
3. How often should an ultrasonic bubble bath be taken?
For general wellness and wellbeing, it is recommended that you have it twice a day : once early in the morning for energy boosting effect and once at night for a good relaxing massage before going to bed. For health reasons, three or more times in a day are recommended.
4. What is the recommended duration for each ultrasonic bath?
An average of 15 – 20 minutes per session is sufficient. However, you may prefer a longer duration depending on your body condition. As such, you should adjust the timing according to your body requirements.
5. What is the recommended water temperature for the ultrasonic bubble bath?
The ideal water temperature for the ultrasonic bubble bath should be higher than the human body temperature; while some may prefer a much higher temperature. To recover from swollen parts due to sprain, it is recommended that you use ice cold water instead.
6. Who should take an ultrasonic bubble bath?
The ultrasonic bubble bath is suitable for people of all ages; except for those who have open wounds or women in their first trimester of pregnancy. For the elderly or people with specific diseases such as epilepsy and heart problems, it is advised to use the ultrasonic bubble bath under supervision.
7. What are essential oils? Why add essential oils to the ultrasonic bubble bath?
Pure essential oils are extracts from plants – either from their flowers, leaves, roots, stems or fruits. These essential oils have been found to be beneficial to the human body in many different ways, such as:
- Enhance our respiratory system (eg Eucalyptus)
- Promote blood circulation (eg Rosemary)
- Remove toxins (eg Juniper)
- Calming to the tense senses (eg Lavender)
- Lubricate joints and bones (eg Hayseed)
- Smooth the skin (eg Chamomile)
- Energy boosting (eg Pine)
Because of their therapeutic effects, essential oils are often added to increase the quality of the baths.
8. Why add salts to the ultrasonic bubble bath?
Salt contains high concentration of minerals. Two types of salts are available: sea salts and rock salts. Sea salts contain lesser mineral concentration than rock salts. SPA salts however are normally re-crystallised with essential oils to enhance their quality. Salts are excellent when it comes to removing water and oils especially for those who have water retention problems, and people with oily skin.
9. What kind of tubs suitable for use in the ultrasonic bubble bath?
An ideal tub would be one with hard surface and edges that are round for the ultrasound to reflect from the hard and smooth surface to the human body. This will maximise the internal warming effect caused by the ultrasound.
10. What is the advantage of using a deeper tub?
The collision of bubbles at high speed is what produces the ultrasound. Hence, a large space is needed to allow for the collision effect to take place. A deeper tub will have the necessary space to render this process more effectively. Furthermore, a deeper tub will be able to accommodate a full-length body rather as opposed to a half-length body.
