Within the color therapy shower, colored LEDs are integrated into the shower head and walls that transform the water jet into a cascade of light and color. Depending on your needs and the time of day when you decide to take a shower, you can choose a specific type of program:

  • for example, if you take a shower in the morning you are more likely to want to choose an energizing and revitalizing program for your body, thus involving vivid colors such as red, yellow or green and with the water set at medium/low temperatures.
  • If, on the other hand, you shower when you return from work or before going to bed, thus at a time when relaxation should be encouraged, you are more likely to choose a relaxing and calming program, which as colors will have blue with its hues and shades of purple, combined with a higher water temperature to promote muscle relaxation.
