Massage has its obvious health benefits, but when those benefits are combined with the therapeutic advantages of warm water, you are left with a truly surreal experience. This article from eHow.com outlines the many advantages of hydro-bed therapy.
What is Hydro-therapy? Well, it’s a message that utilizes pressurized warm water. The individual being massaged lies in the massage unit as pressurized water massages their body. And you do not have to worry about drying off, because you will not get wet. There is a thin waterproof barrier that separates you from the water jets.
Now that you know what hydro-bed therapy is, let’s talk about its advantages.
Hydro massage can be used to treat a number of conditions including soft-tissue injuries, arthritis, chronic pain, TMJ, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, tendonitis, and a number of other pain-related conditions. The warm water, combined with the pressure of the massage, increases your circulation -triggering your body’s natural ability to manage pain.
Strength and Flexibility
Hydro massage is used therapeutically to improve and sustain strength and flexibility by increasing the body’s circulation and relaxing the individual being massaged, which leads to a better range of motion in both joints and muscles.
