The therapeutic qualities of Kohler baths are not necessarily medically or scientifically proved – yet they bring comfort to such a level as to exert immediate tangible effects on the body, be they relaxing or invigorating. Airjets and water jets become crucial components in achieving the desired experience: acting beneath the water surface, they release air and water in the form of bubbles, directed jets, and whirlpools, all coming in contact with the skin and muscles behind it.
Jets located behind the back and the neck further enhance the process by targeting areas most prone to stress and fatigue.
