TOP 5 tips for using your hot tub alone
Being alone in a hot tub is not lonely, there are many things you can do unspoiled with no distraction. It is a time when you can completely relax and focus on things most important to you while you are not forced to do or listen to things that you wouldn’t like while relaxing. Everyone enjoys recharging differently and just imagine that you were trying to switch off in a sedate and calm atmosphere while someone else in the hot tub just cannot stop talking. Therefore, there are times when it’s best to be in the hot tub in solitude.
And here it comes our Top 5 tips on what to do in your hot tub alone…
Listening to music
All Wellis spas and saunas have speakers and a Bluetooth connection so you can play music in there and relax. As you are being alone in there, you won't run the risk of being exposed to someone else's horrible taste in music.
The watertight elements installed in both the MyMusic™ and the AquaSoul™ Pro sound systems are of the latest design and highest quality. There will be no more trouble with CDs or Mp3 players, since you can connect to the built-in receiver unit from your mobile phone via Bluetooth.
To relax you can't go wrong with classical music. Here are some of our recommendations:
John Barry: Somewhere in Time
Vangelis: Bladerunner soundtrack (original) or find the 3 hour 'Rain loop' on YouTube.
Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2
Erik Satie - Gymnopédies
Debussy - Clair de Lune
Vivaldi Recomposed by Max Richter
That should get you going for starters. We should warn you however, although spas and saunas can be connected to your phone/iPad etc. through Bluetooth, it's advised you don't take your gadgets in.

Enjoy hydromassage therapy
Hydrotherapy is a water-based technique that has evolved over a millennium. The ancient Greeks and Romans knew that using heat and pressure in water relieves pain, heals the body and improves health. Hot tub therapy uses the physical properties of water to soothe muscles, bones and joints and to treat symptoms of certain diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, obesity and insomnia. In addition to leisure and relaxation, the healing properties of jet-infused water can really have a positive effect on your health.
We designed treatment areas within our hot tubs which offer different physiological effects in addition to pure experience. The rotating head units of our hydrotherapy jets, products of modern technical innovation, are able to reach larger areas with lower pressure, while fixed jets can massage body fibres more deeply. We designed our spas with positive effects on syndromes resulting from the civilizational harm of our age, including a sedentary way of life.

If you practice yoga, you’ll know how great it feels to relax after a yoga workout. Meditation is a mind-body practice used to increase relaxation, cope with stress or illness, relieve depression and enhance overall health and well-being. Meditation techniques can vary, but most will have these things in common and the good news is you can do them all in the hot tub as it is a perfect place for meditation:
It’s always done in a quiet place with no distractions.
You use a comfortable posture - sitting or lying down
You focus your attention - on a word or set of words, an object or sound eg. water, music, a body part or your breath
You open your mind, meaning you let thoughts come and go freely without judging or stopping them
Sit comfortably, relax and focus on the sensation of your breath as you inhale and exhale. Inhale for four seconds and then exhale for six seconds. Repeat for at least two minutes. If your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to your breath. It is advised to start and finish your day with this simple yoga breathing exercise.
Tip: You can use aromatherapy - if available in your hot tub or aromatherapy candles (lavender or vanilla – soothing scents) and play calming nature sounds or music on the sound system to stop your racing thoughts.
For mediation music you can try:
Hang Drum + Tabla for Positive Energy Music and Healing
Relaxing yoga music: Instrumental for Stress Relief
Arabic Spanish Music - Andalucia Nights
Namaste Chillout ॐ) Indian Yoga Music
Tibetan Healing Sounds: Cleans the Aura and Space. Removes all negative energy
But of course, there are times when you just want to sit back and enjoy the hot water caressing your body… and not do much else! And you can always do just that.
