A floating massage table in a secret panel

A cantilevered ‘floating’ massage table which can be neatly hidden under the floor when not in use could add a new, flexible element to spa design. The sub-floor elevating bed means the space can double up as a gym and although the installation was for a private residence in London, UK, it could be taken up for a commercial project too.

When not in use, the massage table retracts completely beneath a panel that sits flush with the gym floor. When the bed is needed, the panel slides way and the massage table rises up and locks into place – all in 40 seconds. It rises to a height of 90cm, but this can be adjusted.

The two specialist companies behind the design were Meia, a manufacture of automated moving architectural elements such as sliding/hinged roofs; and HepcoMotion which custom-made the linear actuator and motion products which included Zimm screw jacks and Winkle bearing systems from its existing range.

Sauna chair for physically disabled

Saunasella, a Finnish company which makes chairs for heat experiences, has launched a sauna chair for physically handicapped people such as the elderly and disabled. The Fortis chair offers a greater seat height and width and has been designed to be safe and stable. With support armrests, it’s easier and more comfortable for people to sit and get up. The chair can also lean backwards to provide optimum back support, while an optional footrest gives support for shorter individuals. Others who can benefit from the chair are those recovering from surgery, pregnant women, people with reduced mobility or sufferers of balance disorders. The chair is made using 100 per cent natural materials.

Book explores wellness cultures in Europe

Readers can take a journey through the rich and varied wellness cultures of eastern and central Europe in a new book – Healing Sources – Spas and Wellbeing from the Baltic to the Black Sea – that’s being published in December. A number of the region’s wellbeing approaches are based on the power of natural resources, such as respiratory healing in Poland’s salt mines and mud pools in Slovakia, and author Sophie Benge has also written a series of reports on such therapies for Spa Business magazine (see p58). Healing Sources combines tales from history and of famous visitors with photographs of the region’s architecture, landscape, food and natural remedies.

Lemi launches a contrast therapy room concept

Lemi has created two pieces of equipment and developed a massage technique all based around the principle of thermal contrast therapy – in which alternating hot and cold stimuli are used to activate the immune and circulatory systems.

The Spa T?– Room concept features the Spa Dream Q spa table with a bed of heated quartz particles. Meanwhile, the T? – Vale multi-function trolley, which can hold up to 20 towels, has a hot cabi and a cold cabi as well as a heating plate for oils, body wraps and cosmetic products.

Together the two pieces of equipment support the T? – Massage technique which Lemi provides training in. In the treatment, customers lie down on the quartz surface enveloped in warmth and light, after which hot and cold scented towels are placed on the body. It culminates with a deep-tissue massage which has been designed by holistic therapist Giuseppe Damiani to reduce muscle tension and decrease lactic acid to provide an overall sense of wellbeing.

Elemis’ bright idea for skin pigmentation

With ingredients including daisy and pea extracts, a new brightening serum by Elemis is designed to reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation. Advanced Brightening Even Tone Serum also targets dark spots and existing imperfections while helping to minimise future formation, with clinical trials proving its effectiveness in 28 days. Pea extract inhibits the production of melanin, the main cause of skin pigmentation, while daisy extract has a natural skin-lightening effect.
