There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together they create an experience that is both relaxing and healing. Immersion in warm water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, resulting in increased circulation. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by approximately 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles also creating the relaxing sensation of weightlessness. ssw-health-benefits-soothing-hydrotherapy-img The massaging action of a spa is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air through jet nozzles. This “energized” stream of water relaxes tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killers.
If you’ve ever felt stiff, sore or tense, you’ll truly appreciate hydrotherapy. Many arthritis sufferers find that a soak in the morning provides day-long relief. Anyone who engages in strenuous sports, hard physical labor, or just spends the day on their feet will also experience amazing relief in a spa.
Of course a spa is more than just good hydrotherapy. It’s also good fun. So it’s something you’ll want to experience every day. And once you own a spa, you’ll probably find yourself echoing what so many of our customers tell us: “I don’t know how I got along without it.”
