An affusion shower, also known as a Vichy, is essentially a rain-like spray that is intended to massage your body. Five micro jets fixed to an horizontal rail produce the spray which is used to cover your whole body while you lie face down on a massage table.
With an affusion shower, you are wrapped in a rain like mist of mineral enriched water. This treatment may be accompanied by a manual or lymphatic drain massage at the same time. The water is meant to be thin and warm and the pressure and temperature can be adjusted depending on the type of treatment you are looking for.
What are the benefits?
This form of hydromassage was originally intended for those suffering from cardiovascular problems as well as paraplegics, quadriplegics and those suffering from apoplexy.
It was then discovered that using aromatic rain has numerous physical and psychological advantages. Seawater or mineral enriched can also be used. This is a supremely relaxing experience which gently massages the whole body.
An affusion shower can be used on young or old as well as those with mobility problems. Whilst improving circulation, both in terms of blood and the lymphatic system, it also helps to cleanse and nourish the skin and can be useful in treating fatigue and mild hypertension. It's very relaxing and pleasant for both your body and mind.
