I want to have a rain shower head from Airbath in the bathroom. The problem is that we have 10' ceilings. Should so we lower the ceiling over shower to approx at least 8'? Or will it be fine? Also, I'm worried about the possibility of the water cooling as it falls.

All technical features are described here:

I don't think the water will cool noticeably over that extra distance.

But you could just lower the shower head with an extension instead of the cost to lower your finished ceiling.

Without disturbing the insulation or building a moisture proof box in the attic, it would be best to install a bulkhead/ceiling and drop it down to 8ft or 9ft depending on how you would like the shower to look. The water line will stay on the warm side of the interior so that it doesn't freeze and installing a lower ceiling that can be tiled and add moisture resistant potlights if you wish, will look amazing.

Good luck on your renovation.
