Narellan, Australia (PressExposure) September 25, 2009 -- It is virtually a home theatre in a spa with the TV screen rising from inside the spa wall at the touch of a button and linked with high fidelity surround sound speakers and mood lighting.
The space age spa comes in either a six-seater version, ideal for the average family, or a king size eight-seater, complete with individually controlled hydrotherapy jets, comfortable lounge style seating, cushioned head rests and subtle colour lighting.
The aim is to create a home theatre mood to allow people to enjoy their TV and DVD viewing, particularly during the Olympics in an outdoors setting while having the relaxation and health benefits of a therapeutic spa.
Medical practitioners say the soothing warm water pulsating from the jets relieves stress and joint problems, particularly pain associated with arthritis.
With the new spa, 43 stainless steel jets ensure massage sensations to all parts of body from mildly soothing to intensely penetrating. This stimulates heeling and helps increase circulation.
For those who want to know the water temperature before going outdoors, guesswork is eliminated with an optional spa status indicator that works from inside the home up to 100 meters away. It's a desirable amenity especially for winter evenings.
A wide range of spa shell shapes and colours allow home owners to match their decor while the latest trend in surrounds is away from the traditional western red cedar enclosures to a more modern architectural design. According to Blue Haven's sales manager Ric Ricardo, It is the most exclusive range of accessories ever offered in a home spa.
"Before we started concepts for this new line, we surveyed hundreds of home owners to find out what they were looking for in a spa." he said. "Out of this consumer research, our product development team has created spas with the most desired entertainment and performance features."
With another spa in the new range, a built-in iPod cradle adds to the entertainment electronics. With the iPod-ready spas - an industry first - people can unwind to their favourite downloads or pod cast.
