4 Design Benefits Of A Japanese Style Bath

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 190

For centuries, the Japanese have enjoyed the benefits of a soaking tub, also known as ofuro. Unlike American style tubs, the Japanese style bath is not a place to scrub yourself clean. As a matter of fact, it is traditionally held that the bather should take a shower before you enter the soaking tub. The Japanese tub is valued as a place to relax and revitalize. Certain regions in Japan are known for the natural volcanic baths that have formed there. The ofuro mimics the renowned volcanic baths and allows fortunate homeowners to enjoy a hot soak at home at their convenience. There are many benefits to using a Japanese bath, which may explain why their popularity is growing outside of Japan.

1. Space

The deep soaking tub is designed for sitting up in, not lying down. Its deep bowl-like shape means that users can enjoy total submersion though the tub itself takes up very little floor space. This small footprint makes this tub perfect for homeowners with small bathrooms and those who wish to include a soaking tub along with traditional Western bathroom fixtures.

2. Style

Being made from copper, stainless steel, wood and other natural materials, they are designed to be the main focus of any bath and are actually sculptural art works. The unique shape of Japanese tubs also adds to its aesthetic appeal. It's easy to find a design to fit with any décor style since you have options like ovals, circles, rectangles and cube shapes to choose from.

3. Health

The benefits of hydrotherapy are well documented. By soaking in hot water, it increases blood flow which can help to relieve muscle pain and spasms as well as relieving pain associated with arthritis, injuries and even fibromyalgia. When steam and hot water cause you to sweat, toxins are released from the body which improves the circulation of the lymph systems and strengthens your immune system. The relaxation you experience while soaking in a Japanese style bath relieves stress and helps lower blood pressure.

4. Enjoyment

The soaking tub is a family tradition in Japan. The family can enjoy soaking in the tub together or they can take turns soaking in a smaller tub. Instead of zoning out in front of the television every Friday night, start a new, healthy family trend that will benefit everyone. Not only will you enjoy the moments spent relaxing in your Japanese tub, but also the improved health and vitality.

A Japanese style bath can be equipped with bench seating, skirting, steps and safety rails to maximize the comfort level and usability for everyone. With a style and size for every bathroom there's no need to prolong your purchase of one of these special tubs. Start enjoying the benefits of your private deep soaking tub today.
