plumbing a new shower

My husband and I are gutting our MBR bath and are going to completely replace the shower (along with everything else). I'd like to have a massageing shower head with a couple of body sprays, but we aren't sure exactly how to plumb this set-up. We think we need a diverter valve to have either the shower on or the body jets on. Does this sound right? We don't have a separate circuit available to be able to get a shower tower or anything like that, so we were wondering about a simple diverter system. Anybody out there have any input or advice?

I assume that this a shower only, and not a shower/tub.
One way to have separate on-off for the body jets is to T off of the line going to the showerhead (above the faucet assembly), and install a single on-off valve in the line from the T to the jets.
Your regular hot-cold shower controls would control the temperature the same as the showerhead.
Good Luck!
