Buoyancy is a simple physics issue. The body weighs 90 percent less when suspended in water. Specific gravity is reduced, and pressure on the spine, muscle groups, ligaments and joints is significantly eased.
Hydro-massage, the delivery of moving water to various parts of the body, is the final and critical ingredient to this process. All body systems benefit from hydro-massage. Stress, injury and poor posture can all cause muscle spasms and pain. Specifically directed jets of water stimulate and relax trigger points, which are highly sensitive “nodules” in the spasming muscle. Massage has also been shown to improve flexibility, increase circulation, and provide restorative benefits.
Hydrotherapy is more than an unparalleled method of relieving stress and stress-related conditions, such as high blood pressure, headaches and chronic pain. It benefits every part of the body, including the skeletal, respiratory, circulatory, neuromuscular, and digestive systems.
Hydrotherapy has been proven to be especially effective in reducing the pain of arthritis, tendonitis / bursitis and inflammation resulting from sports injuries and overexertion. The moist heath is extremely beneficially to those suffering from respiratory ailments, such as congestion, chronic bronchitis and asthma.
