Massage Showerheads – Upgrade your daily cleansing routine with a high-end showerhead that provides an invigorating massage. It’s a simple way to add relaxation and comfort to your bathroom without spending a lot of money. Additionally, it’s a premium upgrade that you’ll be using every day.
Frequenting a day spa for a body massage may be wonderful, but it can be expensive. A massage showerhead is the next best solution. Massage showerheads work by ejecting water under increased pressure. Water touches your skin with a gentle massaging action to relax tight and tired muscles.
Some massage showerheads come with a pulsating feature. When set on “pulsate” the showerhead varies the spray – increasing and decreasing water pressure. This water variance makes for a pleasurable cleansing experience.
Pro tip: If you prefer a gentle, rain-like spray, consider a rain showerhead for a refreshing wash.
Additional massage showerhead positives include –
- Installation is relatively simple – it’s very similar to adding a regular showerhead – some brands make it even easier.
- Plus, a massage shower is therapeutic, relaxing – and fun!
