The bath versus shower argument can be avoided by combining the best elements of both, the seated shower. A superior way to wash, the seated shower has the penetrating cleansing power of the shower, yet allows the washee to remain relaxed and in fetal form if desired. The seated shower allows for contemplation without the side effect of having to sit in your own dirty bath water. You can always stand up and stretch your legs or do a close up when washing your hair and then return to lying or siting in the bath. The seated shower can be like a suana if you the water really hot and point the stream away, making sure your toes do not get burned.
