New Post has been published on http://www.designrulz.com/design/2014/09/5-reasons-hot-tub-good/5 Reasons why Your Hot Tub is Good for YouPeople invest in hot tubs for many reasons, some of which include escaping the biting cold of winter and making their house into a party pad. I mean, what great party movie have you seen that didn’t include a pool or hot tub scene? Regardless of why you have one, I bet you haven’t considered all of the health benefits that you can enjoy from a good, hot soak. Now let’s look at another 5 Reasons Your Hot Tub is Good for You.
You can also see some amazing mountain resorts with hot tub included presented on Designrulz.

1. Relaxation
We’ll start with the obvious one; hot tubs promote relaxation. When you’re immersed in hot water, your muscles become less tense and you release stress as a result.

ION Luxury Adventure Hotel

2. Immune System

Being in an environment where the temperature is raised (like a sauna or a hot tub) helps to stimulate your body’s natural production of white blood cells. An abundance of these cells aids in your body’s natural ability to fight off infections, viruses, etc. You’ll get sick less often if you’re frequenting your hot tub on a regular basis.

3. Detox
One of the bonuses of being in a hot tub is that it mimics some of the benefits of exercise without having to put strain on your heart. After a few minutes in the hot water of a spa, you’ll begin to sweat; sweating is a great way to remove toxins from your body and it really helps your skin improve.

4. Blood Pressure
When you’re immersed in hot water, your heart rate speeds up to send blood to the surface of your body to remove excess body heat as a means to deal with the increased outside temperature of your environment.

5. Healing
Hydrotherapy, particularly in hot water is known to help people who are recovering from injury or surgery. Just make sure you’re getting into the water with the consent of your doctor after waiting a significant time after you’ve gone under the knife. Again, the increased circulation and blood supply to the injured area helps you to recover quicker in addition to the benefits of an increase in production of white blood cells.

Virgin’s 10,000-square-foot lounge at Kennedy mirrors its postmodern aesthetic, with futuristic designs that can make you forget you’re in an airport. When business calls, the Internet Bar is the place to go: iMacs await and concierges are on hand to help facilitate document printing, address obscure cell phone–charging needs or simply arrange your next meal. Food can be ordered to any seat in the lounge, though it’s perhaps better to enjoy your risotto outside the berthlike sleeping pods, or the Bumble and Bumble salon chairs.

‘The Hub’: Its Biggest Ever Business Class Lounge, Charles de Gaulle, Paris
Arriving at Charles de Gaulle can be quite chaotic – travellers with countless suitcases heading off in different directions, multiple gateways and corridors, noise…it´s a real challenge not to get stressed! This cool and calm environment matches the onboard product and helps bring the whole brand in line with its image of ‘European Chic’. The lounge will be launched in summer 2012. Personally, I hope to get a look inside the lounge, some of the elements I’d love to see in closer detail.

Wooden Sink by By Antonio Bullo
Top mounted washbasin in wood stratified bloom. The sink Gene in wood stratified bloom is an already present shape in the catalogue Plavisdesign, which for years accumulates consents.

Depth Basin by Lago
The result of a subtraction of volumes from an 8-cm-thick shelf, Depth is a washbasin that plays with our sense of void and depth. The inclined bottom, in transparent glass, creates a continual surprise and fast water flow.
The visual effect of Wildwood comes from a special treatment that also increases its resistance.


Wooden Sink by Rapsel
Sophisticated bathroom transformation that allows the usual washbasin, wc and shower tray to disappear under minimal structure made of larch wood. The resulting surfaces may be used as a seating or shelving solution.

Natural Edge Oregon Walnut Wooden Sink
This is a Natural Edge Oregon Walnut sink. This sink is 17inW 10inH 2inThick and was turned on the lathe. It was properly dried, and finished with a waterproof conversion varnish finish. It also has custom holes drilled for the drain. This project came out great and to this day has shown no signs of water damage. Email me if you are interested in a wooden sink.
 
Water map
A wooden basin in the form of a topographic map in which water flows through ducts like river channels.
The basin follows the pattern of streets in the centre of London. The same technique can be applied to other maps, but this choice is a tribute to England as the site of the world’s first industrial production, in the 18th century.
