What is the Vichy Shower?
The Vichy Shower originated in Vichy, France. The use of Vichy has proven cures for arthritis, rheumatism, gout and digestive complaints. Vichy continues to be world-renowned for it’s spa therapies. The Vichy Shower itself consists of a “rainbar” that is attached to a temperature and water control box fitted to the wall in a tiled room. The seven shower-heads are positioned so that they cascade over the guests back and legs. During treatment, the Vichy begins as a warm shower that balances, reinforces the immune system and relaxes the body. After three minutes of this luxurious shower, the service provider performs an alternate hot and cold therapy shower that oxygenates, detoxifies and firms and tones the skin. Due to the action of flushing the lymphatic system for detoxification and the contracting and relaxing of the skin for firming and toning, the Vichy Shower can produce results as very few therapies have the ability to do.
