How Hydrotherapy Can Help Change Your Life
Hydrotherapy is known all around the world for the positive impact that it can have on one’s life. Physicians and physiotherapists throughout the world are praising the remarkable benefits of this discipline. At its very core, hydrotherapy could be considered a form of physical therapy. What sets hydrotherapy apart from the rest, is that it uses water to enhance the benefits and really help improve the user’s health, helping create a better quality of life and speeding along a patient’s recovery.
What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy has its root in ancient times, as the Ancient Romans understood the remarkable qualities of hot water and utilized it regularly. They regularly attended thermal baths to stay healthy and grounded.
Throughout the years, many civilizations have enjoyed and grasped the potential of water and heat as powerful therapeutic tools. Now, it has been translated into the modern era. The healing properties of natural spa baths have been recreated using advanced technology, so that hot tub users can enjoy them from the comfort of their own backyard.
How Does Hydrotherapy Work?
Hydrotherapy utilizes a combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage to provide users with a relaxing and healing hot tub experience.
The first thing you may notice as you immerse your body into the crystal-clear water of your Sundance® Spas hot tub, is the temperature. The heat of the jet-driven water can have a truly magical effect on your body. One that is soothing and immediate.
The heat can help your body and mind relax, letting go of built-up tension and truly entering a state of pure relaxation.
Once your body begins to relax, the buoyancy of the water can really help ease any built-up tension and allow your muscles and joints to relax. The buoyancy helps to relieve added pressure, easing most of the weight from your body. For sore, arthritic joints, this can truly help ease pain and create a higher quality of life in the long run.
Once your body has had a chance to really let go and unwind, the massaging technique from the spa jets can start to take effect. These powerful and innovative jets are strategically placed throughout the spa to target the most stress-prone areas of your body, including your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
While not necessarily meant to replace traditional physiotherapy or medical care, hydrotherapy can certainly contribute to speeding up recovery times following a minor muscle or joint injury, among many other health benefits.
