Vichy shower

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Beauty -

For those who en­joy longer-than-nec­es­sary show­ers, Vichy takes the bliss fac­tor to the next level. Akin to hav­ing a hor­i­zon­tal shower, it in­volves ly­ing down on a padded ta­ble while al­ter­nat­ing streams of hot and cold wa­ter pulse and gently knead the body. Hy­drother­apy has many known ben­e­fits and the pat­tern, place­ment and tem­per­a­ture of the jets are ad­justed through­out the treat­ment to help boost blood cir­cu­la­tion, detox­i­fi­ca­tion, skin hy­dra­tion and elas­tic­ity, and de­crease stress by re­lax­ing mus­cles and sooth­ing the ner­vous sys­tem. Tow­els are strate­gi­cally draped to pro­tect mod­esty, and some spas in­clude a si­mul­ta­ne­ous full-body ex­fo­li­a­tion and mas­sage (say yes). The ex­pe­ri­ence is highly sooth­ing and in­dul­gent, and feels like float­ing in a warm, steamy co­coon. Don’t be sur­prised if you’re lulled into a semi-con­scious state.
