“Salus per aquam” is the ancient root of this acronym defining a wellness space that has surged back into contemporaneous use.
A contemporaneity that is increasingly pushing this precious environment beyond the confines of the medium-large wellness center, prestigious high-level hotel, large villa or manor house surrounded by greenery, perhaps in the most famous hills in Italy.
So if you are dreaming of a future spa corner in an urban apartment or even in an attic, take heart, the future is already here, concretely possible now.
And all due to the technological opportunities that today characterize mini-pools, hydromassages, saunas, and Turkish baths that, it should be said, are starting to be available for personalizations that were impossible up to a few years ago, both in terms of performance and structural characteristics and in terms of client desires and economic investment objectives.
Let’s start with building codes: building a private spa inside your own home does not require any special permit – which is necessary for places with paid entry - as it is part of a normal routine renovation, like renovating a bathroom or the functional reordering of room usage in an apartment.
Moving on to the technical characteristics regarding the “sustainability” of the desired intervention: energy power, water and sewage management, maximum sustainable load of the floor. It’s here that the new technological frontiers have made their biggest advances.
