4 Benefits of a Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy Massage, also known as Hydromassage or Water Therapy, is a therapeutic massage technique that uses pressurized water to help massage muscles and other soft tissues. Traditionally, hydromassage required you to wear a bathing suit and lay in warm water while pressurized jets could be adjusted to reach specific pain points.

Today, there are also “dry” hydromassage options that use a table or reclining chair with a water-filled mattress, so you can feel the pressure of the jets and the heat of the water without actually being immersed in water.

Hydrotherapy dates back to ancient times – people have always appreciated the relaxing effects of water.  Here are just a few of the many benefits of hydrotherapy massage.

Temporary Relief of Minor Aches and Pains

If you frequently suffer headaches, a stiff neck, or a backache, hydromassage may be able to help. By targeting trigger points around the body, the pressurized, warm water can loosen tight muscles and help alleviate pain.

Reduces Stress & Anxiety

Just like any massage, hydrotherapy massage feels good and is relaxing. This can not only soothe your body but also your mind, reducing stress and anxiety and producing a sense of calm and well-being.

Relaxes Muscle Tension

Whether your muscles are tense and sore from too much time working on a computer, or from too much time at the gym, a hydromassage session can be just what you need to relax and refresh. This type of massage can also benefit seniors who may have achy joints or mobility issues.

Increases Circulation

Hydrotherapy has been proven to temporarily improve circulation – especially where the jets/water pressure is directly applied and with cooler water. Better circulation will give you more energy, a natural glow, and help all your body’s systems function better.
