THE POWER SOURCE FOR AQUACITY
Water pumped from underground geothermal natural lakes is fed into AquaCity with an initial temperature around 49 ° C. In large high-tech water exchangers it releases its heat, which is assigned to the hotel and resort buildings. Water in the pools, showers and water supply is under constant/strict supervision and impurities are removed using the same natural filtering systems based on UV, which are used for drinking water.

The use of chemicals is kept to the bare minimum in pools, bathrooms and showers therefore the water remains soft on your skin, eyes and is also environmentally friendly. To minimize the amount of chemicals needed, new pools are constructed using stainless steel, not concrete, thereby reducing the need for chlorination by about 90%.

CHROMOTHERAPY

This alternative healing method uses color and light to achieve physical, emotional, spiritual and mental balance and has a long tradition in medicine. Treatment by color and light has been used since earliest times and has its beginnings back in ancient Egyptian and Chinese civilizations. In the Blue Sapphire pools at AquaCity color effects are used in massage pools in conjunction with healing geothermal water, in order to maximize the impact of soothing colours on the mental and physical balance.

Colour therapy is based on the concept that each creature consists of five basic elements: earth, water, air, fire and ether (space). An individual‘s colours are closely linked to personality and character and varies from person to person. Any disruption of the balance, either an unhealthy lifestyle, or external influences, can lead to disease. Ayurveda uses the energy contained in the colors of the spectrum to rebalance these elements.
