Simply put, hydrotherapy is the therapeutic use of warm water - a proven, natural remedy. Whether it's to unwind from the complexities of everyday life or to rejuvenate sore muscles and joints caused by sports or arthritis pain, hydrotherapy can help you feel better - naturally.
How Does Hydrotherapy Work?
There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create an experience that is both relaxing and healing. Immersion in hot water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, resulting in increased circulation. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by approximately 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles and creating the relaxing sensation of weightlessness.
The massaging action of a spa is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air through jet nozzles. This "energized" stream of water relaxes tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers.
Who Needs Hydrotherapy?
In a word, everyone. Soaking in the hot, swirling water of a spa leaves you feeling both mentally and physically relaxed. Ever have trouble getting to sleep? Fifteen minutes in a spa before bedtime can make it easier to drift into a deep, restful sleep.
If you've ever felt stiff or sore or tense (and who hasn't?), you'll appreciate hydrotherapy. Many arthritis sufferers find that a soak in the morning provides day-long relief. And anyone who engages in strenuous sports, hard physical labor, or just spends the day on their feet can find relief in a spa, too.
Of course, a spa is more than just good hydrotherapy. It's also good fun. So it's something you'll want to experience every day. And once you own a spa, you'll probably find yourself echoing what so many of our customers tell us: "I don't know how I got along without it."
