Babyliss Shiatsu Bath Spa
I recieved my Babyliss Shiatsu Bath Spa from my partners Nan, and to be honest I have only used it once as I am very wary of electrical items that have came from her as she has a habit of breaking things or convincing herself that they are broken and attempting to fix them (badly!) so as you can imagine I wasn't too comfortable with the idea of bad electricals mixed with water and couldn't relax in the bath with it there so I took it out and never used it again.
The Bath Spa is mainly light blue with two darker blue circular ''pads'' on the front left and right. In between these two is the Babyliss logo in lighter blue and at the bottom centre a jet used for the different settings. On the side of the spa is the switch for the different settings which are Vibration, Jet or Jet and Vibration. The power lead coming from the spa is covered in light blue ribbed plastic which not only protects the wire but is also flexible so it can be moulded over the rim of the bath to keep it out of the way. On the back of the Bath Spa are also two suction pads to hold it into place when on the bath tub.
There is a line on the Bath Spa which is indicated to be where the water is to be filled to when using the Spa. Once this has been reached it is time to switch the Spa on. As I have said above, there are Three different settings for it, these again are Jet, Vibration and also Jet with Vibration. The two pads are for when using the Vibration settings and can be used for back neck and feet and I must admit they are rather powerful for such a small product!
The Jet is also available on two of the settings and is rather strong and smooth, as with the Vibration it is immensly relaxing.
The setting which I used and preferred was the Jet and Vibration, I used it on my back as the Vibrations are soothing and relaxing and the Jet tickles on your back and leaves you in absolute bliss!!
In my opinion, this is the best spa that I have ever known and am going to enjoy it even more when I buy one of my own and can fully enjoy the benefits. I cannot fault this product whatsoever.
I know this may seem rather unhelpful but I dont actually know where this can be bought from as I have searched but been unable to find one, Amazon used to sell them for around £24.99 but have none in stock and don't know when they are getting them back in. Maybe e-bay but I am not going to post any information on here as it may not be valid due to auctions ending.
The Babyliss Shiatsu Bath Spa is very easy to fix to the side of the bath with the strong suction pads, and the first bit of electric cable that comes out of the unit is covered in a plastic surround that lets you mould it to a shape thats keeps it out of the way.
Once the bath is full, up to the "minimum" line on the spa unit, switch it on using the dial that lets you choose any combination of jet and vibrating massage.
The jet is quite powerful, given the size of the unit, but if you are used visiting spas you may still be disappointed. I found it more effective when I used it on my feet than on my back. Simply swirling water around the bath with the jet is quite fun, and shows the power of the pump.
The vibrating massage pads are quite noisey, to the extent that the noise reduced the relaxing effect when I used it on my back and neck. But the back massage effect was still pleasant, particularly when used along with the jet.
If found the vibrating foot massage far more effective, and quieter simply thanks to the increased distance between my ears and the source of the noise! Along with the jet I happily while away a good ten minutes in the bath, and feel quite relaxed afterwards.
I enjoyed the second use far more than the first, simply because the first time I was comparing the Babyliss Bath Spa with a "real" spa experience with very powerful jets and and human masseuse. The second time I used it I was a lot more realistic, and really quite enjoyed it!
