The healing benefits of hydrotherapy have been known to all of the world’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.
Jacuzzi Whirlpool Baths 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.
How hydrotherapy heals
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, help the muscles around arthritic joints relax, and promote the flow of endorphins.
The benefits of Hydrotherapy to professional athletes has been used as a way of improving recovery time and Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Whirlpool Baths have played a leading role in that trend.
Injuries to the lower back, neck and shoulders are common in our sport and I often recommend hydrotherapy to our players as part of an overall treatment plan. The hot tub and bath products from Jacuzzi specifically focus on the muscles and joints in these areas. They provide a great way for professional and amateur athletes alike to experience the benefits of hydrotherapy in the convenience of their home.
