Aqua massage or hydromassage is an advanced form of hydrotherapy. Traditional hydrotherapy requires you to immerse yourself in water, but hydromassage uses advanced technology to simulate the effects without you getting wet.
The treatment takes place in an enclosed unit, on a table much like those used for traditional massage therapy. However, rather than filling with water, a hydromassage unit contains a water-filled mattress with jets that produce heat and pressure.
Aqua massage offers the same benefits as traditional therapeutic massage and hydrotherapy. These include:
Many clinical studies demonstrate that hydrotherapy and therapeutic massage effectively reduce many forms of musculoskeletal pain. Aqua massage is just as beneficial for treating common problems like arthritis and knee, shoulder, lower back, and neck pain. It could also be valuable for other chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia and headaches.
Aqua massage is one of the most relaxing therapies available. This is important because stress is a critical factor in chronic pain. The muscle tension that stress causes makes most pain worse and can also cause problems like trigger points (painful spots of knotted tissue in your muscles).
One session of aqua massage can promote a deep sense of relaxation. Regular sessions could significantly reduce your overall stress and anxiety levels.
Aqua massage offers a much more pleasant way to recover from the sore muscles you might have after an energetic workout. Even if your muscular pain is due to other causes, aqua massage can help ease your discomfort.
Aqua massage at a low temperature can promote better blood flow. Increased blood circulation delivers more nutrients, oxygen, and healing cells to your tissues, helping repair your injuries.
Aqua massage is entirely pleasurable — it feels more like a spa treatment than therapy for chronic pain.
Park Brothers Pain Clinic uses the Aqua Massage PT Pro unit. This state-of-the-art system contains 36 computer-controlled water jets that feel like a personal fingertip massage.
Aqua Massage PT Pro has adjustable water pressure and temperature and features a pulsating frequency that relieves pain and tension. It also includes enhancements like aromatherapy and an internal sound system to make your treatment experience even more enjoyable and relaxing.
