Rep Power: 0 tantimeflorida is on a distinguished road
Someone told me about a water massage bed that is starting to be very popular. It takes about 10mins (look something like a tanning bed) you get in with all your clothes on (you dont get wet) shut the lid and luke warm water moves around to give you a massage.... I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this. It sounds like something to look into the only problem is I dont know where to find them. I have looked online but came up with nothing. From what I have heard they have them all over the malls up north (Boston area). If anyone knows anything about this or something like this please let me know. Thanks for all your help

Yes... I know of several companies that specialize in dry water massage units. They vary in price depending on how complex the unit is and what kind of control you have over the type of massage you get. The one you are referring to is called the Aqua Massage and can run as high as $25,000 and up... their website is at http://www.amiaqua.com

There is also the PowerWave which doesn't have a top on it and you simply lay on it on your back. If you search for the term PowerWave in Tantalk's search feature you'll see where we've discussed this unit before. They run between $11,000 and $14,000 and their website is at http://www.thepowerwave.com

There is also the Hydromassage which I believe some of our tantalkers have this unit and I am not entirely familiar with it. From my understanding (which is limited in this area) it starts anywhere from $5,000 and can run up to $12,000... their website is http://www.massagesystems.com

In your research of these items if you decide to purchase one, please report back your findings and tell us why you selected the unit you did, price, style, maintenance, warranty and customer service. Thanks and good luck!

You might want to do a search in the equipment forum about these. I know we have talked about several of these in the past.

I bought a POWERWAVE in November. Got it set up in December. They provide great marketing info and help. I am glad I have it. It is at least paying for itself at this point even with all the free seesions we are giving.

I kinda wish that I'd opted for another tanning bed too. It's not a bad product, but another tanning bed sure would be nice.

Because we have nails as well as tanning, our powerwave draws customers who might never think of tanning into our tanning side. Some have decided to tan 'just a little'.
