Asian Massage table shower
A Vichy shower is an interesting way of getting a shower while laying down on a table, usually as part of a , like a salt scrub or body wrap. Instead of jumping up and getting in a shower to rinse off the salt or mud, you simply lie there. Nice!
Basically it's a set of five to seven shower heads that run parallel to the treatment table. The Vichy might be attached to the wall, or freestanding.
The therapist turns the water on and adjust the temperature while it's away from the treatment table. Once it's the right temperature and pressure, he/she will swing it over your body. The cascade of water feels delicious!
During a Vichy shower you are usually draped with towels - one between your legs and for women, one across your breasts.
You can wear disposable underwear. When you're on your back, the therapist might put something over your face to minimize the water spray in your face.
If you're anxious about nudity, this is probably not the treatment for you. Turning over with wet towels tends to be a little sloppy.
