HEALTH BENEFITS

Hot water therapy works!


 

Hydrotherapy

A warm water massage can be a restorative, therapeutic experience. Since ancient times, people around the world have recognized the healing properties of hot water. Today, people recognize the benefits of a hot tub. The best hot tubs can promote health and wellness with hydrotherapy. With a combination of high-performance jets and advanced seat designs, hot tubs move water in new ways, delivering the positive benefits, such as less stress and better sleep, relief from muscle soreness, and fewer symptoms of arthritis and back pain.

Hydrotherapy is a practice that goes back thousands of years and continues into the current day as an effective way to relax, soothe aching muscles and joint pain, and relieve congestion. Water therapy is also used to help speed recovery from injuries and improve circulation. Spending a little time in the warmth of your hot tub each day can lessen the stress on your body, an important factor in maintaining your health. The patented high-volume, low-pressure jetting systems will deliver relaxing reflexology inside the tub.

Hydrotherapy is used to “treat injuries and aid in the rehabilitation of the athlete,” according to the book, Principles of Manual Sports Medicine by Steven J. Karageanes. Writing about the effects of a warm-water whirlpool, Karageanes states, “It is believed that the circulating water causes mechanical stimulation to the skin, which causes a reflex anesthetic effect and a decrease in muscle spasm. The after-workout health benefits you get from a hot tub are far-reaching. Come visit us and our team of professionals can help you choose your perfect model.

Hydrotherapy has the ability to:

  • Mitigate the symptoms of muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries
  • Increase blood flow and circulation
  • Alleviate back pain
  • Ease the symptoms of arthritis
  • Help restore range of motion
  • Bring the body into a more calm state

For the relief of aches and pains in the neck, shoulders and back, the massage therapy seat is usually the best seat in the spa. You can also choose to stretch out in a full-body lounge for an overall massage. Our patented jets are specially designed to move water in new ways. They surpass the action of less advanced jets in creating therapeutic massage styles. Sophisticated engineering allows them to move water with distinct variations, from swirling to pulsating. After a workout, nothing feels better than a massage from a hot tub.

Hot tub therapy feels great after exercise.

Hot tub therapy has long been a favorite of athletes for the relief of post-training muscle soreness, strain, and injuries. Even if you’re not an athlete, staying active, whether it’s a daily walk, a game of tennis, bicycling, or gardening, can leave you feeling some aches and pains. For participants in recreational sports, most injuries are not the result of sudden catastrophes, but come from overuse, or not being properly conditioned for a particular activity. As a hot tub owner, you can experience the post-workout benefits of hot tub therapy, right in your own backyard. In both Western and Eastern healing traditions, professionals routinely recommend or prescribe hydrotherapy for the relief of pain caused by overworked muscles, arthritis pain, and certain types of injuries.

Hot Tub Water Therapy: Whether you’ve spent a day cleaning out the garage or an afternoon on the golf course, you might be feeling some extra fatigue and muscle soreness. One of the best ways to alleviate the discomfort is by easing into a warm-water massage in a hot tub. The combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage in a hot tub is designed to deliver a highly effective Hydrotherapy spa.

Rejuvenate with the healing benefits of at-home alternative spa therapy.

What is alternative hot tub therapy? It’s a term used to describe the ancient tradition of practicing healing, restorative water therapies and hydrotherapeutic massage techniques. Hot tubs have perfected the art of modern alternative spa therapy by giving you the option to use light, scent, music, and powerful massage variations in your hydrotherapy sessions. Reflexology, chromatherapy, and watsu are three of the most well-known alternative spa therapies.

  • Reflexology: The foot jets in many of our models are ideal for the massaging foot work involved in reflexology
  • Chromatherapy: In-spa lighting casts a spectrum of mood-enhancing shades
  • Watsu: The healing art of watsu ideally takes place in one of our large hot tubs
