ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF THE VICHY SHOWER
THERAPEUTICAL EFFECTS OF BITHERMAL VICHY
At the end of the last century the STAND SHOWER was a device
which was widely used measuring 280 cm high and containing
independent taps for the different accessories. It was used to apply
a wide range of hydrotherapy techniques.
Showers are the best form of hydrotherapy because as the water
that is in contact with the body is continuously renewed, it provokes a
constant renewal of the thermal and mechanical stimuli. The VICHY
shower quickly interchanges hot and cold jets of water, always
beginning with the hot water.
The beneficial effects for the organism are divided into three areas:
a) NERVE REACTION
b) CIRCULATORY REACTION
c) THERMAL REACTION
Another type of shower was called the DUST SHOWER with circular
copper pipes which were horizontally superimposed and each pipe
was about 15 cm from the other. They were perforated by two rows
of fine holes.
THE HYDROTHERAPY
Hydrotherapy is a form of physical treatment with beneficial effects
that are due to the thermal and mechanical action of the water
current on the human organism. Regardless of the form of
hydrotherapy, the application of water on the body always produces
a thermal stimulus. Any brusque application of cold or hot water
always provokes a reaction in our organism that consists of a an
initial peripheral vasoconstriction which is followed by a peripheral
vasodilatation, in virtue of which, a large amount of blood flows from
the organs deep inside to the blood vessels dilated skin, reducing the
work load on the heart. This kind of circulatory gym, first,
vasoconstriction and then, vasodilatation is very beneficial to a
healthy organism as it accelerates the organic recharge and
improves secretions in general. HYDROTHERAPY can be applied by
means of: bath, showers, compresses.
.
THE NERVE REACTION is a reaction in sensitivity that varies in
accordance with the water temperature.
With cold water, it excites to the highest degree of peripheral
sensitivity, especially the surface vessels, which makes the nervous
system recover and increase tone, and this is why the reaction is
eminently tonic. Hot water produces a calming and slightly tonic
effect on the nervous system.
THE CIRCULATORY REACTION consists of the production of
vasodilatation or vasoconstriction in accordance with the water
temperature. When in contact with cold water, the peripheral vessels
contract, the skin turns pale and the heart reduces beats, thus
increasing the blood pressure; after a few moments, the skin
becomes red, the blood pressure goes down and the heart
accelerates beats. With hot water, the same two phenomena are
produced, first vasoconstriction with hypertension, and then
vasodilatation with hypotension, which is more stressed. It is ideal
for people who are overweight due to the constant massage of the
affected areas.
THE THERMAL REACTION, with the application of cold water, the
organism forces the blood to circulate in an effort to reduce the loss
of heat. With hot water, the organic defense functions by means of
an energetic peripheral vasodilatation and transpiration.
VICHY SHOWER DESCRIPTION
The Vichy shower is composed of the following:
1. Articulated stainless steel arm anchored to a support fixed to
the wall where the shower is located. The arm include 5
sprinklers are placed with independent taps to use sprinklers
that are of interest depending on the massage is performed.
Sprinklers have three positions, Rain, massage, or nebulizer.
2. Table bed, cushion, rubber and elastic mattress. This table
measures 70cm. wide and is usually placed in a cabin that
makes at least about 65 cm on each side of the table.
3. Beneath the bed take a drain with a slope of 2% connected
to a tube able to withstand 50 L / min. In the room also is
needed a safety drain.
4. Digital display panel with built-in to change the various
programs of showers.
5. Hydraulic safety valves box for the water run and cut,
prefilters, mixing valve to regulate the temperature of water.
6. Optional element. Opcional special therapeutic kit, injection
of aroma, for the different massages.
MATERIALS USED IN THIS SHOWER, STAINLESS STEEL AISI316, are of highest quality.
ATTENTION:
Cleaning, DO NOT USE HYDROCHLORIC ACID, OR OTHER
PRODUCTS RUN LIKE THIS, IT SERIOUSLY DAMAGE THE
STAINLESS STEEL FINISH.

SPRINKLERS CONSUMPTION
To get a proper therapeutic effect, it is necessary to adjust the water
pressure between 2 and 3 kilos.
The valves box is equipped with a mixing thermostatic valve, in order
to achieve a correct temperature of hot water and get adequate
therapeutic effects, which is 34 to 38ºC degrees.
The cold water temperature will be obtained from the tap, and used
only for a few seconds to make fast changes in body temperature.
In different programs are implemented at the same time a maximum
of 5 sprinklers, so the total maximum consumption is about 50 liters
per minute.
TOTAL SHOWER CONSUMPTION
In order to obtain 34º / 38º C mixture of water levels is necessary to
have a supply of hot water 20 to 25 liters of water at 50 or 60 degrees
per minute continuously.
And to get an effect of cool water is needed supply of 50 and 60 liters
per minute.

ASSEMBLING NEEDEDS
To install the shower need the following requirements:
-
1. Have a minimum of space on each side of the bed of 65 cm.
You need a place to store the equipment as close as possible to
the shower, at most 3 or 4 meters of it. The reason is when some
time passes between one and the following session, the water in
the pipes cools down, so the user has a strong feeling of cold.
For the location of the machinery you need space 100cm height x
45 cm x 45 cm deep.
For the location of optional aroma dosage system kit you need
more space + 65cm high x 65cm wide x 33cm deep at a correct
height to be able recharge easily the aromas.
2. Have a room or cabinet placement
machinery of which are detailed on page 9. , that is not farther than 3
or 4 m from the shower. It can also be installed in the same room of
the Vichy shower. As long as this to 1 meter minimum projection of
water.
3. Drain pipe 70mm. enough to evacuate 50 L. per second.
4. Water heater capable of supplying a continuous 25 to 30 liters of
water per minute at a temperature of 50 or 60 degrees and a
pressure of 2 to 3 kilos.
5. Cold water supply with capacity 50-60L/min.l. at 3 kilos pressure.
Above the shower or on the ceiling if we have a total height of
3 m.
Decided the location of the machine, will do the following facilities:
 Hot water tap ¾” female capable of supply 25 liters per minute
at temperature 50 to 60ºC degrees continuously.
 Cold water tap ¾” female capable of supply 50 liters per minute
continuously. In the position indicated by the following scheme.
6. Hot water. Supply with capacity 20-25L/min. at 3 kilos and 60 ºC
 Electric power Line 220-IF + Neutral + Ground for 500 W circuit
breaker protected and independent line.
7. Line + T 220II electrical circuit breaker protected.
 Tiled and waterproff floor with inclination 2% to drain or grate
symphony able for 50 liters per minute.
The machinery may be located in different sites:
 In a room beside the shower.
 In a built in or prefabricated wardrobe in same decoration. (Is an
optional element in this shower).
 Water supply to the shower arm with a tube of ¾ (22mm), with
female thread on both sides, recessed into the wall, from the
position where the arm is located at a height of 120cm to the

Once the desired time is allocated in the variable program, press "OK"
to validate it and then appears the following screen:
For example if you activate the relaxing shower in 60 seconds of
cold water and hot water 60 seconds, and the total time of the
shower is 1 minute, the sequence can not be completed because
the sum of times of hot and cold water (120 seconds) is greater
than the total time programmed (60 seconds).
To avoid this problem we must balance the individual time of hot
and cold water to the total time of massage.
