Hydro massage in our CARACALLA hydrotherapy tub has excellent deep-muscle effects because they are so precisely designed to match the contours of the human body.
With 260 individual water nozzles and 50 dedicated air nozzles, CARACALLA gives you treatment options that range from intense individual massages all the way to gentle pampering - customized to your personal preferences. Massages begin with gentle, effleurage strokes of the muscles and tissues. During the underwater massage, ten different zones are treated covering 20 parts of the body ranging from the soles of the feet all the way up to the shoulders.
The seaweed body wrap is an all-natural way to enhance and moisten your skin, decrease excess water weight from your body, detoxify and boost your metabolism.
At the beginning of the session, you rest on a solid cushion of air, which is the perfect foundation for a body wrap. Once the wrap has been applied, the cushion slowly releases air to lower you onto a pleasantly heated water cushion. This feeling of floating calms and relaxes your body, enhances blood circulation, and opens the pores of the skin. This gives the wrap a chance to reach its maximum effect. When the cushion of air rises again, your legs are supported and lifted first to stabilize and stimulate your circulation.
Sharko Shower activates metabolism, improves blood and lymph circulation, relaxes nerves, eliminate headaches, improves sleep quality, and is used for the prevention and correction of cellulite.
The Sharko Shower projects water under high pressure from a shower-like device for an extra-strong massage over the patient’s entire body. The device is applied from a distance of 8.5 – 10 feet. It uses a pressure of 1.5-3 atmospheres, and is performed at a temperature of 60° – 68 °F.
Ice packs and heating pads are familiar rehabilitation tools, but many people have never heard of therapeutic contrasting: quickly changing tissue temperature from hot to cold and back again. It is one of the oldest forms of treatment.
To date, contrast hydrotherapy is used to prevent and treat acute and chronic conditions. This is usually achieved with hot and cold water, either dunking a limb or even immersing the whole body. Contrasting therapy should be a standard part of any detoxification weight loss treatment as it easily stimulates tissue without stressing it. Contrasting should follow the following basic pattern: 4 alternations between heating and cooling: 1 minute each – warm, cool, hot and cold. This treatment strengthens immune defenses; stimulates the circulatory, nervous system, and metabolism; and completely invigorates the body.
Our specially curated Triple Core Treatment takes each of our Core Elements and combines them into the perfect detox treatment. Each session includes a treatment of hydrotherapy, seaweed wrap, Sharko Shower, aroma steam room, Kneipp contrast therapy, and sauna. With continued sessions, our guests will see and feel the positive effects of this full body detoxing process.
