According to its website, the Spa Capsule is " a self-contained, full body massage system, aroma-therapy unit, audio and video entertainment system packaged into one futuristic capsule-shaped relaxation station."
I can attest that it is all true.
I had the distinct pleasure of experiencing it last week when I attended a special spa event at the home of Sara Herbert Galloway, a journalist and philanthropist who serves on the board of the World Wide Children's Foundation of New York. Usually, the Spa Capsule is found in a mall or a spa, but every now and then it finds its way into a private home.
How did it feel? Ticklish! It's a water massage but you don't get wet and you can keep all of your clothes on. It features an LCD panel with preset programs (you can change this to whatever you want), 14 Vichy shower heads, aromatherapy reservoir and adjustable steam therapy, all workable by remote control. You can use it anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes and zone out to whatever you choose to put on the LCD monitor or in your iPod. I guess I haven't been in a mall in a long time because I had never seen it before - but I could definitely see (and feel) its appeal.
