With your Hot Spring or Caldera Spa, you're already gaining numerous benefits in life: relaxation, wellness, stress relief, healthier relationships, and massage therapy.  But there's another less-talked-about benefit that we often take for granted, especially during long, dark winter months.

Take advantage of MOOD lighting with your hot tub, often thought of as chromatherapy. The soothing qualities of color from LED hot tub lighting allow our bodies and mind to drift and relax in the warm hot tub. The psychology of color is a powerful thing, especially at night when the sun sets.

Michelle Hughes does the freestyle at Ironman Boulder in August 2016.
