Frequently Asked Questions

1. What can I add to MicroSilk baths?

You may add bath salts, teas, oils, and aromatherapy oils to a MicroSilk Bath. You will notice that the amount of aromatherapy oils necessary will be reduced in a MicroSilk bath. The oils will float to the surface and be aerosolized with the anions, rather than being emulsified in the bath water. If you are using a bath additive to treat a skin condition, be sure to check with your doctor before using it in MicroSilk.

2. Should I put lotion or medicine on before or after MicroSilk?

After; MicroSilk cleans the skin even better than soap, so any lotions or creams will be removed during the bath. Applying lotion after the bath is encouraged to lock in moisture.

3. How sanitary is the system?

Jason baths include a series of specially engineered features to keep the system clean including positive drain plumbing, v-Jets, purge cycles, dry air channels, and ozone (O3) to sanitize the water. Collectively, these features are known as Sani-Design.

4. If this is lifting impurities out of my body, where do they go?

MicroSilk microbubbles bind to impurities and lift them away from the body to the water’s surface. The impurities gather around the edge of the bath for easy rinsing when the bath is complete.

5. Where does the oxygen come from?

The oxygen comes from the ambient air around you. It is drawn into the MicroSilk system through a venturi and dissolved at elevated pressures through our patented process.

6. Are gases other than oxygen present in the bath? Will they have an effect on my skin?

MicroSilk is fueled by ambient air, and oxygen is most easily dissolved in the water. So, all gases in the air around you are then increased in the bath, but only the oxygen can be used by our skin’s cells.

7. If I am diagnosed with _________, will MicroSilk work for me?

While we have heard about great improvements in our customers’ cases of eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, irritated skin, rashes resulting from chemotherapy, and a number of other conditions, everyone’s skin is different. The oxygen levels in MicroSilk are safe and contribute greatly to health and well-being. Consult with your doctor regarding treatment of particular skin conditions.

8. How long will the effects of MicroSilk last?

We have received customer responses giving time ranges from 12 hours up to 3 days. Everyone’s skin is different.

9. Can I put my head and face in it?

Yes; the most comfortable way to do so is to use Jason’s MicroSilk Wand. The wand fits into a MicroSilk jet, allowing you to apply MicroSilk directly where you want it.

10. If I order a combination bath, can I run both at the same time?

No, they will run independently because the cleansing effects of MicroSilk will be diminished when operated simultaneously with a Whirlpool or AirMasseur hydrotherapy.

11. Do you need to clean/ flush the unit? How often?

We recommend any hydrotherapy bath system (AirMasseur, Whirlpool, or MicroSilk) should be flushed and cleaned with Jason Cleaner or a non-foaming detergent at least once a month.

12. Why aren’t MicroSilk and its combinations available in all bath models?

Each type of hydrotherapy equipment has different space requirements. Some of our baths do not provide enough room under the perimeter of the bath to accept the MicroSilk® and/or other equipment.

13. Does a MicroSilk only Bath purge itself?

Yes. The MicroSilk system is designed to drain itself after each use, and does not require an air/power assisted purge.

14. Does a MicroSilk only Bath have a Blower?

No, MicroSilk produces the billions of micro bubbles by pressurizing a small volume of water and releasing it back into the bathing well at near atmospheric pressure.

15. Does a MicroSilk only Bath have a heater?

No; A MicroSilk bath maintains the temperature of the bath water through the heat energy created when the micro bubbles implode (collapse) beneath the water’s surface.

16. Is it Multi Speed?

No; A single speed is all that is required to create micro bubbles.

17. What is the Voltage Requirement for MicroSilk?

120V, 20A

18. What is the warranty?

The warranty for MicroSilk baths are the same for other Jason forma and Designer Collection baths, which is twenty five years on the shell and 3 years on the mechanical and plumbing systems.

What is your relaxation routine?

 

Do you sit in your chair after work and watch television? Do you like to read a book once your children are in bed after a long day shuttling between dance lessons and soccer practice? What about meditation? Or yoga?

 

There are so many ways to relax your mind, but are you really relaxing your body as well? Taking a long, hot bath can be a wonderful way to ease those small stresses in both mind and body.

 

So how good for you is a hot bath really? Actually it can be a great part of your wellness routine it turns out! Below I have listed a few reasons that you should pour that glass of wine, put on your favorite song, and draw a hot bath tonight.

 

1. Taking a bath can elevate your mood.

 

It's true! A study done in 2002 by the University of Wolverhampton found that a bath at the end of the day significantly improved the mood of their study's participants. Some of the factors that attributed to the elevation in mood were comfort, warmth, isolation and the position of the body.

 

2. Baths can help relieve Skin Conditions

 

There are many doctors that actually prescribe either medicated or oiled baths to help treat skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. By moisturing the skin through bathing you are also able to help wash away dead skin cells and prevent infection. Jason's MicroSilk® technology further adds to this benefit of bathing because the oxygen rich microbubbles both help to moisturize and bring oxygen into your skin lifting away impurities and leaving your skin plump and silky.

 

3. Taking a hot bath can help you to sleep better.

 

It's so difficult for many of us to get the reccomended eight hours of sleep a night that is ideal. One theory is that by taking a hot bath and raising your body temprature, your body will actually release more melatonin afterwards as your body starts to cool down. Melatonin is a sleeping hormone and the rapid cool down of your body will increase amount of melatonin your body produces and prepare you for sleep.

 

4. It can be good for your heart!

 

It is true! Taking a warm bath can help to reduce blood pressure some research shows. By reducing your blood pressure you can avoid more serious heart conditions like heart attack or stroke. By taking a hot bath you are using heat to help with blood flow and cirulation which is equivilant to a mini workout.

 

5. Hot baths burn calories.

 

Maybe not as much as more vigorous activities, but taking a hot bath and the sweat induced by it can actually help your body burn just as many calories as if you took a good walk!

 

There are so many things we can do to help relieve daily stress and improve our overall health. There is more to being healthy than just physical health of course, mental health is just as important. I hope you consider making bathing a part of your wellness routine!

 

Happy Bathing!
