Transform your bathroom into an oasis of healing and relaxation through heat, light, sound, smell and massage
Tubs with heat zones, such as those that include Bain Ultra’s WarmTouchShell technology transmit and circulate heat to specific areas of the body to promote healing and total relaxation.
Once you emerge from the tub, continue your thermotherapy by stepping onto a floor heated with underfloor heating to remove the chill of tiles, and wrap yourself in a towel heated with a towel warmer.
It can’t get much cozier.
Placing candles and essential oil diffusers throughout the bathroom can affect our psychological well-being in a number of positive ways, including reducing stress and anxiety.

The inclusion of plants and flowers in the bathroom can also contribute to scent, air quality and aesthetics.
