Water is used in physiotherapy to:
- speed recovery from injuries
- relieve muscle soreness by facilitating the removal of lactic acid
- open the blood vessels to improve circulation
- relax the muscles around arthritic joints
- promote the flow of endorphins
All of these benefits combined with the opportunity of a moment of rest from the distractions of daily life make hydrotherapy both physically and mentally therapeutic.
The healing benefits of hydrotherapy have been known to all of the worldâ€™s great cultures, with a history that dates back thousands of years. Jacuzzi® has popularized the ancient practice of water massage therapy for a new age. Relaxing heat, muscle stimulation, and lighter-than-air buoyancy relieve physical burdens and brighten the spirits. Researchers have observed the healing effects of hydrotherapy: decreased joint pain, improved circulation, and acceleration of the body's natural healing processes.
Hot tubs are known for delivering soothing and stimulating hydrotherapy. The warm water and massage elements in a hot tub can help reduce stress, clear your mind, and soothe overworked muscles, which is particularly important to athletes! Whether you're juggling work and family, recovering from a joint or muscle injury, or simply needing to unwind from the day's stresses, hydrotherapy provides relaxation, healing effects, and nourishing rejuvenation.
Hydrotherapy can help bring about a good night's sleep, may help keep joints moving, restore strength and flexibility and soothe arthritis pain. A hot tub hydrotherapy session is a great experience any time of the day or any season of the year.
Why hydrotherapy works
Water under pressure from jets can alleviate the muscle tightness produced by stress and anxiety through the application of direct massage and heat. From a targeted stream for deep-tissue massage to relaxing micro-bubbles, Jacuzzi jets give you a variety of hydrotherapeutic massage types.
