Why is the contact with water beneficial?


Those who deal in people’s wellbeing know only too well that water must be there. Be it in a hotel or day spa or in a beauty center, the benefits of hydrotherapy are numerous.

Have you ever wondered why?


Doctor Wallace J. Nichols explains this very well in his essay called “Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, Or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, And Better At What You Do”.

In short, water brings out the best in us and favors the production of the hormones of happiness; scientific research has confirmed it. Here at Starpool, we intend to combine the Float Therapy with beauty and health treatments thanks to our Nuvola tank and we have summarized below the key points of the relevant scientific research specifically for you.


Let’s discover together the benefits of hydrotherapy and how to make them part of the offer of your center thanks to Nuvola Experience.


The color of water is soothing

A 2003 statistical survey asked over 200 people which was their favorite color. It’s blue! We live in a planet that features all the many shades of blue of the sky and waters and, according to Nichols, this would explain the reaction of happiness that our brain experiences when we see this color.  Over the years, chromotherapy has associated the color blue with the reduction of stress, anxiety and insomnia, and even the improvement of inflammatory states.


As far as colors go, Nuvola has taken a step further! Thanks to the choice between eight available colors, the float session, combined with the beauty treatment, responds to specific wellness goals:

  • Do you want to sleep better? Choose the colors of sunset, between red and yellow.
  • Do you want to focus before an important event? Light blue, the color of the awakening, is the perfect choice!
  • Want to relax and take your mind off things? Blue is the ideal well-being ally.

Water makes us feel “in the right place”

We spend the first 9 months of our life completely surrounded by water. Our body is 75% water. Three quarters of out brain is water. We all know these notions very well and, according to Nichols, they explain a lot about the benefits of hydrotherapy. “The evolution of our species brought humans outside of water, where they evolved going from swimming to slithering, and then to walking.” The relation between humans and water is indeed inborn and profound. That’s why “when we find ourselves near or in contact with water, we feel that we are in the right place”.

Water eases pain

Hydrotherapy and floatation are precious allies for physical therapy treatments and muscle relaxation. By stimulating endorphins, water eases both the body pain and tension, while it favors muscle recovery and tissue regeneration by improving blood circulation

That’s why Nuvola is so popular in sports too.
