VShot and dry (sauna), hot and humid (hammam), alternating hot and cold with water jets and massages of varying intensity… the world of “wellness” is built around sensations involving a warm and pleasant environment. So energy consuming. “We have three jacuzzis (small, medium, large)”, explains Alexandre Bauwin, manager of the Tiny Spa in Saint-Gilles (Brussels). “Their consumption varies according to use, the jets… but let’s say that for the medium-sized one, it represents around 4,000 Wh, which we can reduce to 2,000 Wh during the night but which, unlike our hammam or our sauna, you can never turn off. The jacuzzi is only the base of this small wellness centre. Other establishments see things much bigger.
