In part 1 of this entry, we discussed the history, effects on the body, and a brief overview of the water massage practice called Hydrotherapy. This great health boosting technique is practiced worldwide in hospitals and treatment centers, but it can also be done in the comfort of any hot tub you have access to. In this entry about hydrotherapy, we will go over the benefits, and provide a quick how-to guide to effectively practice this life changing technique.
First of all, let’s go over some of the key benefits to your health provided by hydrotherapy. If done correctly, water massage loosens muscles, assists relaxation, boosts the immune system to fight off illnesses, assists the body in digesting more effectively, hydrates cells, assists detoxification with improved circulation, increases the efficiency of internal organs with a boosted blood supply, and many more important functions. These effects on the body are monumental for one’s health, and can help reduce the impact of arthritis, colds and flus, depression, headaches, muscle problems, joint issues, nerve disorders, stomach issues, stress, insomnia, and many more common problems.
Now that we know the incredible benefits of hydrotherapy, it is time to learn how to correctly practice it. The first step in properly conducting a hydrotherapy session is to determine your goal for that soak. If you are wanting to relax, and take advantage of stress relieving and sleep inducing hydrotherapy, it is usually effective to turn the jets on high and set the temperature to about 93-97 degrees fahrenheit. Using deep breathing and meditation techniques during this relaxing soak will help prime you to unwind. If your goal is to help reduce muscle tension, aches and pains then setting it between 98-104 degrees with the jets on high is the way to go. Adding stretching and therapy exercises can also help increase the positive effects on your body. Finally, if you are trying to reduce muscle soreness, inflammation and injuries to joints then make sure to do a cold soak with the temperature at its lowest setting , and the jets turned high. If you really want a strong effect, you can even add ice to your soak (make sure you stay at a safe temperature and that your hot tub is equipped to deal with this low temperature).
Hydrotherapy is an amazing tool to increase your overall health, and make you feel amazing. Your very own hot tub can help you experience the powerful benefits of hydrotherapy through water massage. Don’t forget that Waters Choice will help your water feel clean and refreshing to take your hydrotherapy sessions to even greater heights!
