If you are looking for a new and relaxing way to improve your health, then aromatherapy is for you. An ancient form of holistic healing, aromatherapy uses natural plant extracts to promote relaxation and well-being. Also known as essential oil therapy, aromatherapy has been found to improve your health both physically and emotionally. When combined with water-based therapies such as hydrotherapy, reflexology or chromatherapy, it can prove to be an extremely effective way to improve your overall health.

One of the best ways to reap the benefits of these two excellent therapies is with a Hydropool swim spa or Jacuzzi® hot tub.

How would you feel if the world suddenly lost most of its colors? What if everything was just black and white? Even though it may not be obvious, colors have a dramatic effect on our perceptions, moods, emotions, and behaviors. We paint our homes in colors that create feelings of coziness and comfort. We clad ourselves in colors that boost confidence. We travel to places that appear lush and colorful in photographs. You may not know it, but color plays a significant role in your emotional well-being. If you travel back in time, you will discover that color therapy was used for healing in many ancient cultures around the world.

This is known in modern day as chromatherapy. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs designs and manufactured hot tubs with this therapeutic technique in mind, which is why it’s so easy to enjoy a relaxing chromatherapy session from the comfort of your hot tub. In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at hot tub chromatherapy.
