The days are drawing in and colder weather is on its way. It’s time to dust off that thick coat, snuggle into your winter duvet, and drink hot chocolate in front of the fire. Chilly evenings also create the perfect opportunity to indulge in a warm, relaxing bath.
But how can you make this an even more enjoyable experience?
Candles, music and a page-turning book spring to mind. Perhaps, like Beethoven, a long soak gets your creative juices flowing and keeping a notepad to hand would help you capture your best ideas.
One thing that’s guaranteed to improve your bathing experience is StayWarm; a feature you can add to any bath. Here’s why it’s the ultimate magic touch this winter.
What does the StayWarm feature do?
StayWarm heats the underside and back of your bath seat, keeping you at an optimum temperature throughout your bath. You won’t need to wait, shivering, while the water fills up or drains away. Nor will you need to top up the hot water during your bath.
It’s particularly important to stay warm and comfortable in the bath during the cooler months. You can easily adjust the temperature, feeling safe in the knowledge that a mechanism will automatically switch off the system to prevent overheating.
Why is heat therapy good for you?
Heat therapy improves blood circulation, which helps blood flow to all your vital organs, supplying them with oxygen and nutrients. This can improve your blood sugar control and help lower your blood pressure. If, for example, you are suffering from back pain, it can also relieve inflammation of the muscles around the affected area.
A warm, soothing bath also causes our skin releases endorphins – the feel-good hormone or natural pain killer – in the same way it reacts to the sun. The temperature of the water and the pressure on your chest can even increase your lung capacity and oxygen intake, improving your breathing.
Which baths come with StayWarm?
Our extensive bathing range allows you to combine this feature with any of our baths.
A space-saving option, like our Tranquillity walk-in bath, has the lowest door entry available in the UK and an extra-wide outward opening door with a secure locking mechanism. You can also add our mood-enhancing Chromotherapy system, or our Hydrovescent therapy, which is designed to help further relieve your aches and pains. StayWarm is available on all of our upright walk-in baths.
The StayWarm isn’t available on our full length baths due to the design, though other optional extras may be available. The Paradise is a long, P-shaped bath that will allow you to combine the pleasure of bathing with the practicality of showering. Or the Empower is a full-length bath that comes with a Simple Lift powered seat for when you need a little extra help getting in and out of the bath.
Bathing as a wellness experience that brings physical and emotional comfort to us all. So, why not make it the best experience possible?
