Dealing with persistent pain in the body can be draining and reduce the quality of life. When aching muscles, bones, and joints affect mobility and are constantly gnawing away at a person, energy levels are sapped and it's difficult to have a positive outlook on life. While a masseuse might be recommended to address pain caused by health conditions or injury, this can be a costly remedy that doesn't provide thorough relief. Hydromassage is a more effective alternative that can relieve pain and promote good health as well.
What is hydromassage?
Hydromassage is a type of spa treatment in which water jets are used in hot tubs and apply high pressure. When such a treatment is used, the water jets are more effective than those used in typical hot tubs and jacuzzis because the pressure is more intense. In addition, an increase in temperature is applied in a hydromassage treatment. Generally, hydromassage involves being immersed in water. However, there are variations with waterproof membranes in which direct contact with water does not occur. The body receives the same benefits from the deep tissue massage that is applied to many areas of the body with the proper amount of heat. For the person who opts for relieve at home, it's important to choose a quality hot tub with water jets which the right amount of pressure and are placed to target trouble spots. Temperature adjustment is key.
Is hydro massage for everyone?
Hydromassage is an effective remedy to address pain in bones, joints or muscles due to strain and injury. For those dealing with chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia or arthritis, the combination of water and heat is an excellent form of relief. Hydromassage can actually help heart patients as well, resulting in better heart function and improved blood pressure. This is also a method of choice for those dealing with insomnia or in need of regular stress relief. However, people with medical conditions, including heart problems, should discuss hydro massage with their doctor before beginning therapy or regular use of hot tubs and spas at home.
Why choose hydro massage?
Hydro massage applies heat and pressure to all areas of the body that are in contact with the water. Muscles, joints, and bones are soothed through deep massage. The rush of warmth causes a pleasant sensation that treats the entire body in ways a masseuse never could.
