Recently I attended a Kohler® University Training Event, an interactive course led by a Kohler Training Specialist. I got up-to-the minute information about innovative bathing experiences: Size and material options for traditional tub bathing, Effervescence bathing, Bubble Massage™, Whirlpools and VibrAcoustic™ bathing.
VibrAcoustic bathing is a new and exciting concept “creating an environment of harmony both invigorating and restful.” Kohler describes the experience as “music and sound vibration completely surrounding you, permeating the core of your body. Your breathing and heart rate become entrained, echoing yoga-inspired rhythms that enhance your ability to relax.” Four different sound/music compositions are available titled: Solitude, Letting Go, Awakening and Transcendence. In addition, the bath has a user friendly interface control with the option of listening to a favorite playlist or radio station.
Throughout the day, I learned some other useful tips: Kohler sells a cast iron cleaner which protects your tub surface. They also reminded us that using bath salts in air bubble or jetted tubs will cause corrosion and installing heat under a cast iron tub will aid in keeping bath water warm.
Part 2 of the seminar was about aging in place -- Stay tuned for my next post on bathing innovations that support this new trend.
