Benefits of Hydrotherapy Massage

While the majority of people see a chiropractor for pain, chiropractic care  is good for literally thousands of symptoms besides pain. What can make chiropractic care even more beneficial is coupling it with hydrotherapy massage, which has been proven to:

•              Provide temporary relief of minor aches and pains

•              Reduce the level of stress and anxiety

•              Provide deep relaxation and feeling of well-being

•              Increase circulation in local massaged areas

•              Relieve muscle soreness, stiffness and tension

Water has long been used for its therapeutic benefits, and in fact, hot springs have been used for centuries to soothe aching bodies because it was known for its effectiveness in the treatment of injuries and ailments. Also called “dry water massage,” hydrotherapy massage tables provide the same benefits from water massage that you might get from a hot tub with water jets, without getting wet.

Today, hydrotherapy comes in many forms, such as hot tubs with pulsing jets, a massage while immersed in a warm pool, steam baths, alternating hot and cold tubs of water, warm and cold compresses, wet wraps, pool exercises, foot baths, and hydro-massage tables.

Hydrotherapy Massage offers four hydro-massage tables that use hydrotherapy to massage away aches and pains, stress and anxiety, and loosen stiff muscles. This type of massage is similar to a deep tissue massage and utilizes water to increase circulation and stimulate muscles. It uses jets that are more powerful than those in hot tubs to direct pressurized water to your achy muscles, and because it’s customizable, it can give you an all-over massage or be directed to precisely where you need it.

The temperature of each bed is adjusted to give you the benefits—warm, hot, or cold treatments—depending on your condition and preference. It improves function in the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, and nervous systems, which means it can aid in the treatment of many orthopedic, rheumatic, and neurological disorders. It helps reduce arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and other conditions whose symptoms include chronic pain and it also helps digestion and reduces muscle spasms.

The warm water of the massage increases your circulation, which increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients that get sent to your muscles. This increase in circulation promotes healing and may even accelerate it. Hydro-massage can be used as a standalone treatment or can be used to enhance the benefits of your chiropractic treatment. For many, relaxing the body is helpful after a spinal adjustment. If you’d like to experience some of the benefits hydro-massage has to offer, call
