Kohler Waters Spa Burr Ridge Adds KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower – One of Only Three in Existence – to Further Enhance Hydrotherapy Experience

Spa celebrates addition with specials and showcasing fall seasonal treatments

KOHLER, Wis. – November 9, 2015Kohler Waters Spa Burr Ridge is thrilled to further elevate its notable hydrotherapy services for Chicagoland guests by installing the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower in its wet room. One of only three in exsistence and made by Kohler Co. exclusively for the spa, KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower provides a differentiating hydrotherapy experience.

Being installed in November, the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower is a horizontal arm of water that houses six KOHLER WaterTiles, providing a constant showering of warm water in varying sequences throughout the service. The design of the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower is sleek, modern and programmable using the KOHLER DTV (Digital Thermostatic Valve) Digital Interface to pre¬program the service settings.

Two KOHLER Custom Vichy Showers currently reside in the flagship spa location at Destination Kohler, a five-star, five-diamond resort in Kohler, Wisconsin, also known for award-winning golf and recently having hosted the record-breaking 2015 PGA Championship. The product was created out of a desire to improve the Vichy experience and the Kohler Waters Spa team worked closely with engineers at Kohler Co. to create a unique product exclusive for the spa.

“Being owned by Kohler Co., the leading plumbing manufacturer in the world, means that we have access to expertise in creating and engineering high-performing products, on the leading edge of design and technology” said Garrett Mersberger, Director Kohler Waters Spas. “Our staff is always thinking of ways to elevate the five-star spa experience. We wanted to improve the Vichy Shower treatment, so we met with our team and shared our thoughts on how a custom-made product could help us do so. We are grateful for the expertise of our plumbing team who helped us not only elevate, but provide a exclusive hydrotherapy experiences at our spas.”

Mersberger goes on to add that with the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower allows for the technicians’ hands to never leave the guest’s body. “We are able to program the WaterTiles digitally to cascade water throughout the service, so that our technicians have the maximum amount of time to massage, exfoliate and tend to the guest.” The DTV allows for programming the length of time water is flowing, the temperature, and most differentiating from other Vichy Showers, the ability to have one to all six WaterTiles cascading water at once. Other Vichy Showers do not allow for this versatility.

Kohler Waters Spa has long been an industry leader in water and hydrotherapy experiences and the location in Destination Kohler is one of only 48 Five-Star spas in the world. Each of the three spa locations, in Kohler, Burr Ridge and St Andrews, Scotland, focus on water as the healing theme. Guests are encouraged to immerse themselves in water, whether hearing it, feeling it, touching it or enjoying it in a service. The healing power and rejuvenation elements of water is pillar of Kohler Waters Spa.
