Many people use their bathrooms to de-stress, whether that’s taking a hot bath after a long day or beginning the day with an invigorating shower. Is your bathroom a peaceful haven, or a utilitarian space to do your business and clean yourself up? If you answered the latter, there’s no reason you have to keep it that way. There are plenty of therapeutic ways to make a bathroom more relaxing in Midland, MI—and they don’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
Aromatherapy, chromotherapy and hydrotherapy are three popular ways to upgrade your bathroom. Here are some ideas about how you can transform your boring bathroom into a relaxing spa-like experience.
Aromatherapy is the idea that scents can help produce different effects, like calming, invigorating or uplifting. Certain scents have been scientifically proven to have physical effects on the body.
Aromatherapy is easy to include in your shower or bath. For baths, all you need is a great tub and a scented bath bomb, or essential oils. If you’re more of a shower person, there are special showerheads that allow you to place aromatherapy capsules in the head, which distributes scented water while you shower.
Other aromatherapy options include hanging eucalyptus branches in the shower (which helps relieve respiratory issues), using shower steamers (scented discs that slowly dissolve as the water hits them—buy them premade or make your own) and bringing an oil diffuser into your bathroom.
Chromotherapy is the art of using color to create different moods or effects. This is a highly-studied marketing phenomenon, but it works in your home, too. For example, warm colors like red, orange and yellow are good for uplifting and energizing, while cool colors soothe and calm. You can repaint or retile your bathroom to match the effect you want to create—or, if you want to keep your options open, try a chromotherapy showerhead. These showerheads use colored lights to enhance your shower experience, and you can change them depending on your mood.
Finally, hydrotherapy comes from water itself. External hydrotherapy is performed by exposing the body to hot or cold water to achieve the desired effect. You can also use powerful showerheads to soothe sore muscles or get your circulation going. It’s the same concept as getting into a hot tub to relieve aches and pains, or taking a cold shower to wake yourself up.
Some hydrotherapy showerheads include motion features, which amplify the water’s effects. You can use hydrotherapy on its own or combine it with aromatherapy and chromotherapy for a truly immersive experience.
