Bath design experts say these innovative tubs are the next "home theater" where, surrounded by music and candles, you're transported to a world of relaxation.
This world includes tubs with gentler, air-powered jets — beyond the 20th-century whirlpool — that work their way up the spine and neck so convincingly they might require a warning label.
