Sound Immersion

“Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

We know that early childhood exposure to classical music aids in the process of mental development. A pregnant woman sitting on a park bench with earphones affixed to her stomach, the sound of Mozart playing softly, understands that music is an important part of life, and that it is never too early to benefit from its influence.

While music therapy is a relatively modern science, the idea is far from new. Native Americans used singing and chanting regularly in their healing rituals. After World War II live music was performed in hospital wards to soothe injured soldiers.

As we grow and develop, music influences our state of mind. Songs with faster beats may enhance concentration and thinking. A slower tempo produces a calm, meditative state that can promote relaxation and help prevent chronic stress.


Today, we have access to music through multiple devices. Our kitchen has a radio, our living room has an entertainment system, and our office has a computer. This trend can overflow into the bathroom and even into the bathtub itself. With Jason’s Sound Immersion System, the bath shell is literally transformed into a speaker.

“The sound immersion speakers with our newly designed floating remote control will turn your bath into a liquid stereo of sound and vibration,” says Jeff Cunningham, Vice President of Engineering at Jason. “The speakers use transducer technology to transmit vibration through the shell of the bath turning it into a sound amplifier. Simply plug in your desired media device, a stereo, TV, Ipod® with amplifier, and enjoy.”

All of the baths in our
Home Spa Collection come equipped with the Sound Immersion System, and many of our Signature baths offer this as an option.

Environmentally Friendly Faucet


DOUBLE CASCADE Spout®
Imagine yourself immersed in a private pool of swirling, bubbling, muscle-relaxing heated water. Then, because you love the sound of cascading waterfalls, imagine that your private pool is constantly filled by a never-ending cascading waterfall. This is the reality of the Jason patented Double Cascade Spout®.

Our uniquely designed faucet not only transports the bather into this wonderland of cascading waterfalls, but it does so without wasting gallons of water. The Double Cascade Spout® contains two independent faucets in one. The upper faucet, containing high flow rate valves, allows the heated water to quickly fill the bathing well, while the lower faucet, powered by the Quiet Design Whirlpool pump, continually recirculates the heated bathing water. By recirculating the water instead of continually re-filling the bath, over 50 gallons of water can be saved during each bathing session.

Designed and engineered exclusively for Jason Whirlpool baths, the Double Cascade Spout® is available as an optional selection. Visit our website
or consult your Jason Distributor for more details.

This is one of many steps Jason is taking to "go green" and reduce our paper consumption. Please join us in this effort and encourage your customers to register their baths online.

Kitchen and Bath Features Carrera™ Bath


Kitchen and Bath Business magazine highlights the benefits of clean, white space in bathroom design in their cover piece. Featured in this article is the Jason CB553P Carrera™ bath. The Carrera™ Collection contains our sculptural, solid surface baths inspired by designer Shawn-Ian Bruce.
The article gives advice specifically for creating a modern, minimalist bathroom. Their description of the
CB553P is as follows:
"A freestanding sculptural form, the Jason Carrera™ Collection bathtub is artwork for the bathroom. Ergonomically designed for a deep soaking experience, it's strong and warm, sophisticated and welcoming, with the look and feel of natural stone."
Other tips for creating a clean look in the bathroom is to use a soft, white palette, brushed nickel hardware, and frameless cabinets, as well as gray stone flooring for contrast.

Jason International Adds New Bath Models to the Designer Collection

Jason International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of hydrotherapy bath products, introduces four new additions to their Designer Collection. Jason’s Designer Collection sets the standard high for luxury bath design and state-of-the-art hydrotherapy. The collection’s broad range of shapes, sizes, colors and features provide the ideal bath for any space and style.

For 25 years, Jason has been focused on providing the ultimate hydrotherapy experience. 2008 continues that heritage of hydrotherapy innovation. “Our focus for this year was to expand the product offering within the Designer Collection. These new additions will accommodate growing trends within the marketplace, respond to feedback from the industry, and provide more shapes and sizes for the end consumer,” states Jeff Cunningham, Vice President of Engineering at Jason International.

Because of the longstanding popularity of the LX series, Jason introduces the LD635, the fifth model in the LX series. The LD635 is a rectangular version of the LC635 and shares many of the same luxurious features. It is available as a Whirlpool or Combination Air-Whirlpool bath.

Also new in 2008, the ES553 is a rectangular end drain bath available as a Whirlpool, Combination Air-Whirlpool, or Soaking bath. It shares numerous characteristics with the LX553, however, the ES553 is designed without a raised shoulder for alcove and undermount installations.

“Our studies of custom and commercial building projects have revealed an increased interest in midsized baths. This inspired the development of the new JL5535 and the VE5535 baths,” states Jeff Cunningham. “Each 66” bath is available in all of our hydrotherapy choices: Whirlpool, AirMasseur®, Combination Air-Whirlpool, and Soaking hydrotherapy.”
