ChromOTHERAPY - new WELLNESS trend Each colour carries a unique energetic charge. The eye perceives only 20% of this energy, the ramaining 80% is absorbed by the skin (ca 2m² of it) and its accupressure points, which are highly responsive to the external stimuli. (Mandel) When an impulse of energy reaches the skin, the nerves shoot a message to our brain. The brain then processes the inforamtion and sends a message back to different parts of the body. Exposure to light of a given colour may help restore or calibrate energy levels within the body, thus bringing about health benefits such as: improved metabolism and tissue regeneration, better mental attitude etc.
Colours are divided into two types: warm and cold.
Chromotherapy SYSTEM - RUBEN wellness

RUBENalu ALUMINIM FRAME rustproof stabilizes the bath unit strengthens the rim provides labour-saving installation dampens vibrations also recommended for regular bath units without hydromassage systems
WATER HEATER Sustains constant water temperature during the bath. It guarantees worry-free bathing sessions without water cooling down unpleasantly. The unit includes: a digital controller and a flow water heater with temperature monitoring.
RUBEN ozonator 3 Philips lamps integrated with the blower. The system dries and disinfects air- and champagne jets.
Efficient cleaning formula for hydromassage bathtubs. It removes all debris and eliminates bad smells. To achieve best results we recommend it to be used regularly. Depending on how often the bath is used and water hardness in your area it is advisable to repeat the treatment every 4-6 weeks.
DISINFECTION SYSTEM Switches on automatically after the bath. The thing to remember is to put the sanitizing tab: it dissolves and the solution flushes the pump, the pipes and the jets, removing all sludge and left debris.

water stream MASSAGE – equivalent of two classical massage techniques: 1. rubbing, 2. PRESSING
hydromassage n Low-velocity water flow – similar to rubbing massage. Effect of application:
hydrotherapy SYSTEM - RUBEN
– pain relief, warming up joints and connective tissues, improved muscle elasticity, swelling and bruises reduction. n High-velocity water flow – similar to pressing massage. Effect: – increased blood supply to the massaged tissues, improved blood and lymph circulation, accelerated muscle regeneration, better muscle tone and elasticity.
An adjustable jet fed by POWERSTREEM system – re-inforced air-water massage. Max. water flow: covers large massage areas (thighs, back). Effect: better blood supply in tissues, removal of metabolic waste, improved muscle tone and elasticity, pain relief. – Min. water flow: deeper, pressure point massage, perfect for smaller areas (limb muscles). Effect: tissue regeneration.
Rotary MAX-jet for foot massage (reflexotherapy)
A whirling water stream effecting improved blood circulation in tissues. Application: – foot reflexotherapy – large massage areas stimulation (back, gluteus muscles, abs). Effect: increased blood supply in the massaged tissues, better muscle tone, elasticity of connective tissues, pain relief.
Highly concentrated pinpoint water stream ideal for massaging smaller areas (limb muscles, skeletal muscles). Effect: relaxation of massaged area, pain relief.
Rotary water Super-jet
Application: – foot reflexotherapy, – overall massage of the body. A whirling stream of water improves blood circulation in tissues. Effect: enhanced blood supply to the massaged area, relaxation and pain relief.
Small diameter water stream ideal for pinpoint massage of deeper muscle and nerve structeres. Effect: stimulation, pain relief.
Each hydromassage session should be preceeded by a short warming-up air massage. Always start the main procedure with water flow volume set to 'Low' - this will give your body the time necessary to adapt itself. Then you may increase both the duration and the intensity of the treatment. It is recommended to end each hydromassage session with air-massage. After an extremely intense hydromassage take a day's break in order to allow your body restore its natural balance.
AIR MASSAGE - similar to classical stroking techniqe in which palms glide over the surface of the skin applying firm rhythmic pressure.
AIR MASSAGE n Low-velocity air flow - gentle surface massage. Effect:
n High-velocity air flow - deep stroking massage. Effect:
– cleans skin surface making it mild and smooth, – improves skin and connective tissue tone, flexibility and elasticity, – calms the nervous system, – stretches and loosens tight muscles.
– improves blood circulation producing nutrients and oxygen to the cells, – reduces swelling and scarring, – stimulates the nervous system.
CLASSIC air MASSAGE
(combined water-air system)
supplemetary to water massage RUBEN hydromassage systems are fully self-contained, ie. the air is supplied through highly efficient autonomous lines n the air escapes vertically in the form of bubbles, whose size is shaped by three types of jets (selected according to desired massaging action and affected body parts). n
3-hole jet - large bubbles (tapping massage of the back) n 5-hole jet - medium-size bubbles (tapping and penetrating action); stimulate internal organs n 7-hole jet - small bubbles penetrate the skin, open up the pores, aerate blood, remove deposits, fight cellulite, relieve cramps and muscle spasms. n
water escapes at an angle of 45º, which increases the range of water stream and fortifies massaging action: -physically relaxes the body, -speeds recovery from injuries and illness -improves skin tone -reduces swelling and scarring -strengthens the immune system, -relieves tired and aching muscles n water stream is pulverized into millions of tiny particles which penetrate deep n
