Water equipment – part 2

More essential equipment news for wet spa areas

By Kate Corney | Published in Spa Business 2012 issue 3


TOP PROJECT


CONSERVATORIUM HOTEL AMSTERDAM, 4SEASONSSPA


The project: 4SeasonsSpa created four whirlpools of various sizes for the newly built spa at the five-star Conservatorium hotel in Amsterdam.

The equipment: The whirlpool systems give a complete body hydromassage through 24 jets in each tub.

What makes it stand out? Each bath is designed in a contemporary style and finished in a dark marble to harmonise with the materials and colours used in the design concept by spa architect Piero Lissoni. Tiles run directly from the walls into the bathtub making it look as if the bath was sculptured in marble and integrated into the floor and wall.

Other key features: The whirlpools, which are located in the spa’s double treatment room and its three wellness suites, can be filled and drained in just a few minutes. The approximate size of the baths is 150cm by 160cm and they hold a volume of around 1,200 litres.

What else? 4SeasonsSpa also supplied the spa at the renovated Hotel Café Royal in London, designed by David Chipperfield, that is due to open soon (see SB12/2 p24).

Company background: 4SeasonsSpa has distributors located in Europe and also in the Middle East.

YIN YANG COUPLE TUB, TRAUTWEIN


The tub: The shape of the tub is based on the Chinese symbol yin and yang with a central dividing edge. Each bather can choose the temperature, bath additives and lighting effects in their side of the water.

What makes it stand out? Sound wave massage is integrated so guests can feel musical vibrations through their bodies.

Other key features: The bath is delivered with a special frame for tiling on-site and can be cladded with ceramics or wood. It has an automatic filling system and, in addition, each tub has a hand shower and thermostat that operate separately.

Company background: Trautwein products can be found across 82 countries and spas include those on AIDA cruise ships and Caracalla Therme in Baden-Baden, Germany.

HYDROFLOTATION POOL, FINDERS INTERNATIONAL


The pool: The Hydroflotation Pool contains Dead Sea salt minerals in the water to deeply nourish the skin and promote a healthy, hydrated complexion. This year, Finders has also introduced halotherapy, breathable minerals, before the user enters the water for relief for respiratory and allergenic conditions.

What makes it stand out? During hydroflotation, the force of gravity is eliminated, allowing relaxation of joints and muscles and enabling a better blood flow.

Other key features: The pools are free standing and self-contained. The water in the pool is kept at a constant 35.5?C.

Company background: Finders distributes its products globally and is planning to launch a range of quality salt inhalation equipment.

AEMOTIO SPA, LEMI


The cabin: The Aemotio Spa is a multifunction hydrotherapy experience bed which combines various water and heat functions and which can accommodate a range of modern spa therapies.

What makes it stand out? Its many features include a Vichy shower system, a steam function, a water mattress which can also be heated and infrared and colour therapy lights.

Other key features: Many different spa therapies can be performed on the bed including detoxification and body modelling treatments as well as scrubs and mud wraps. This makes it ideal for spas offering more complex treatment programmes and packages. A basic version of Aemotio Spa, without the Vichy shower, is also available.

Company background: Lemi distributes to Europe, the USA, Russia and the Middle East and supplies leading spas including those at the Valentino Resort, Italy and for the Deep Nature Group, France.

What makes it stand out? The shower delivers fragrance for an enhanced experience – think cool mist with peppermint scent. Lighting effects are also available.

What’s next? The company is developing a new type of thermal cabin ceiling material which it plans to launch later this year.

Company background: This shower is manufactured by the recently re-branded Anapos Thermal Spa Equipment by Steamworks Ltd in the UK. Previous Steam-Works installations include the spa at The Cube, Birmingham, UK.

AQUANEURO, BIOSYSCO


The system: The Aquaneuro is a new hydrotherapy bath which uses ‘SigmaQ’ technology developed by Roberto Ciaff, founder of the Biosysco Corporation. It is designed for use in homes, spas and medi-spas and was launched in the UK this year by distributor Aquavate.

What makes it stand out? SigmaQ produces packets of energy delivered via sound waves. This energy stimulates motor neurons, causing the muscles to contract and enabling greater circulation to the muscles and tissues.

Other key features: The Aquaneuro Plus has an upper and lower body control option, enabling users to target specific areas of concern for recovery.

Company background: Biosysco is a US-based technology company focused on improving health and wellbeing.

Other key features: All models, available in white, silver or black, come with an operating panel and electronically-operated drainage. A neck cushion and armrests made from soft, gel material are available.

SOFT-PACK SYSTEM, HASLAUER

The system: The Haslauer Soft-Pack System I Day Spa offers guests a dry floating experience on warm water, aiming to relax the muscles and skeletal system.

The guest is placed on the bed and wrapped in thin foil, which folds around the body under the pressure of the warm water. Although the body doesn’t come into contact with the water, it ‘floats’ on the surface of the system.

What makes it stand out? The bed can be used with many different skincare products and treatments.

Other key features: ‘Sense’ cladding in high grade materials is available in different colours, and additional equipment includes a water refilling device and soft music.

What’s next? Haslauer will be running training courses for therapists in wellness treatments.

Company background: Haslauer distributes internationally. Spas it supplies include the Four Seasons, Hawaii, US; Hotel Splendid, Montenegro and the Elemis day spa, London, UK.
