A spa is a great way to transform your backyard into a relaxing getaway. If you’ve started researching spas, you know that people call them by many different names. Some say hot tub, some say spa, and others refer to them as Jacuzzis, which is actually a brand name for a specific type of spa. Of course, our favorite design is the infinity edge spa (or rimflow spa). If you’re trying to decide which type of spa is right for you, check out these five reasons why you need an infinity edge spa.
1. Beauty and Luxury
Anyone who has seen or experienced an infinity edge spa knows that this style is synonymous with luxury. Often found at resorts, the clean, crisp lines of these spas give them an elegance and beauty that other styles lack.
Without the clutter of edges or steps nearby, an infinity edge spa allows an unobstructed view from your backyard. Whether you overlook a scenic valley, mountains or simply the gorgeous landscaping in your yard, an infinity edge spa will allow the scenery to take center stage.
2. Creature Comfort
With an infinity edge spa, you won’t have coping sticking into the back of your neck while you’re trying to relax. At The Green Scene, we have special tools to create a rolled edge so that you can comfortably rest your head back on smooth tile. The higher water level creates more comfort for you.
3. Stress-Free Zone
It’s no secret that life can be stressful. More studies are being done showing the importance of self-care and hydrotherapy. What better way to reduce stress than by relaxing in an infinity edge spa? Let that to-do list wait and allow the stress of the day to melt away as you listen to water bubbling and flowing over the edge of the spa. A favorite therapeutic feature of an infinity edge spa from The Green Scene is strategically placed foot massage jets for the ultimate stress relieving foot massage without having to beg your partner.
4. Health Benefits
Having an infinity edge spa can provide a variety of health benefits in addition to reduced stress levels. A little hydrotherapy in your spa can be just the key to deeper, more restful sleep.
You can also benefit from a spa in terms of pain relief. Soaking in your new infinity edge spa can help to relieve joint pain, muscle soreness, and more.
Spending time in a spa can also lead to better heart health. Research has shown that even just 10 minutes in your spa may help to lower your blood pressure and improve heart function. And if that’s not enough to convince you, studies have shown that soaking in a spa for an hour can burn roughly the same amount of calories as if you had taken a 30-minute walk! Go ahead and cancel those plans with friends. You need to get in some cardio tonight.
5. Time to Reflect
Infinity edge spas are often referred to as illusion spas or reflective pools. This is because of the sheet of glass effect that’s created by rimflowing the water. Our designers love to play on that reflective quality with proper placement of lighting and fire features. In design speak, we call it “mirroring,” where the spa surface perfectly reflects what lies behind it. Whether you’re in the water or just an admirer looking at it, infinity edge spas offer a great return on your investment.
