“Our Family Working Together with Yours”


Create a Therapeutic Space in Your Home

Whether you’re training for a marathon or just worked a marathon of a workweek, sometimes you need a place to unwind. If you require more than just a quiet space and a good movie to get your body and mind right, these are a few things you should include in your home to create the perfect therapeutic space to recharge.

A Great Shower

A big, spacious walk-in shower with multiple shower heads is ideal for unwinding after a stressful day. You should also invest in a massaging shower head to give relief to your tired muscles. Your shower should include a bench to sit on and be zero grade for optimal style and convenience.

If your budget allows, you can incorporate a steam generator into your shower, creating a luxurious spa-like atmosphere. This does require some extra work as proper installation is crucial to ensure correct operation and avoid mold and mildew building up in your bathroom.

The end product will be a relaxing shower where you can relax and allow the steam to calm your body and mind. The best part is it only uses about two gallons of water every 20 minutes, which is far less than your standard showerhead.

A Soaking Tub

Is there anything more relaxing than a warm bath after a hard workout? Installing a soaking tub in your bathroom will be of great use for your tired muscles. You can also consider a tub complete with jets that will provide in-home therapy that will make you feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle your next workout.

A Tranquil Outdoor Space

If you aren’t keen on water therapy but the outdoors does sound nice, a tranquil outdoor space can be the home remedy you need. You can build an area with a television and comfy seating where you can relax and zone out while watching a movie. This is especially beneficial for those of us working from home. It’s like we’re getting out of the house without actually leaving.

You can also create a detached screen room and fill it with plants, dim lighting, and some soft music and use that as a place to read, journal, or take a nap when you need to recharge.

A Dedicated Room for Yoga and Meditation

Yoga and meditation do amazing things for the mind and the body, but trying to do them in your living room with a barking dog and kids climbing on can cause more stress than it’s worth.

You can consider turning an unused guest room, basement, or attic into a yoga and meditation room. 

All you’ll need is a tranquil paint color, full-length mirror, aromatherapy candles, and some wooden floors to make the space as appealing as your local yoga studio.

A Sauna

If you want the ultimate in relaxation, you can build a sauna. We can build this in a large, unused closet, small bathroom or find a space in your basement and transform it into the most peaceful, reinvigorating space in your entire home. The installation is a fairly large undertaking.

We will need to install foil to reflect the heat, lower the ceiling, and install cedar paneling to start, but the finished product will be one hundred percent worth it! Want to get started on building a home therapy space where you can recharge? Give us a call. We will go over your options and promise not to stress you out too much during the installation process.
