Facials are wonderful, but they are nothing compared to an invigorating body treatment. Unlike facials, Vichy Shower allow you to experience the same cleansing and exfoliating effects over your entire body, leaving you feeling completely rejuvenated - it's the perfect way to unwind and recover after a long, stressful week.
This luxurious water treatment is detoxifying, hydrating, and intensely relaxing. It affects both the skin and the muscles. It calms the lungs, heart, stomach, and endocrine system by stimulating nerve reflexes on the spinal cord.
If you want to reconnect with nature, consider ordering a Vichy shower, which is a very soothing and invigorating treatment involving water massage, which aids the body in cleansing toxins by stimulating circulation and lymphatic flows.
What is a Vichy shower? It is a type of wet body treatment where a client lies on a wet table that is usually cushioned, and water pours out of several different shower heads. During your Vichy shower treatment the therapist will adjust and alternate massage jets over your entire body. The Vichy shower consists of a 6 headed rain bar that can be adjusted to provide light pressure (for a soothing, tingling, sedating effect) or stronger pressure (for relieving tension in your problem areas). Your therapist will decide with you beforehand whether you should have a hot, cold, or contrast shower. The hot water is to relax tense muscles and muscle spasms, increase blood flow to the tissues, and relieve pain. It also initiates a good night's sleep. The cold shower is used to reduce inflammation and to invigorate the body and mind. Some treatments involve alternating between hot and cold water to relieve congestion and headaches as well as to promote circulation. Switching from a hot shower to a cold shower for just 30 seconds sends an immediate rush of blood through your system, which speeds up the body's healing process and gives you a burst of energy.
A Vichy shower enables a spa therapist to complete all treatments in a single location, without having the client shower in a different room or area. Clients tend to love the relaxing massage effects from the shower heads that compliment many different body treatments such as body scrubs.
If you are feeling tired and rundown, or your skin just doesn't glow like it used to, then head to your local spa and treat yourself to this amazing body treatment, which will leave you feeling rejuvenated in body, mind and soul.
