Health Benefits

Hydrotherapy is an age-old form of healing and stress relief. It is based on three simple principles: heat, buoyancy and water movement, or hydro-massage.

Heat & Buoyancy

Warm Water dilates the blood vessels and increases circulation in the body. This enables enzymes and endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers) to work more rapidly and efficiently on areas of the body, such as muscles and joints that have been strained, injured or stressed. Warm water also enables the cells to more easily rid themselves of metabolic waste, which is replaced by oxygen and the body’s natural nutrients.

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.
