What is hydrotherapy?

Simply put, hydrotherapy is use of water as part of a health and wellness routine. Usually this will involve warm water which is therefore why hot tubs are commonly associated with the term.

Whether you’re stretching in a swimming pool or just letting the warm water of a hot tub work wonders for your body, if you’re using the power of water to improve your well-being, you’re practicing hydrotherapy.

Hydrotherapy benefits

The healing properties of warm water immersion and massage have been celebrated and practiced for centuries. Today, many hospitals and physical therapists use warm water immersion and massage therapies to provide comfort and help alleviate a range of ailments. With our focus on enhancing the self-care benefits of a spa through careful design and engineering, a Caldera hot tub can accomplish more than ever before.

Muscle recovery and faster healing

Medical professionals suggest warmth to increase circulation and assist healing. Time in a warm spa, especially those equipped with soothing jets, helps increase circulation so the blood can supply nutrients to help cells and tissues regenerate.

Natural pain relief from arthritis

According to the Arthritis Foundation, time in a hot tub creates a helpful environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. Heated water raises body temperature and increases blood circulation while and water’s buoyancy relieves stress on joints and muscles to encourage better movement. When jets are used, the warm water massage relaxes muscles, ligaments and tendons and stimulates the release of endorphins–the body’s natural pain relief mechanism.

Overall stress relief

People have soaked in warm water for centuries to relax. These days, hot tub owners are quick to tell us about how soothing their spa feels and how recuperative it is. Studies show the soothing effects, too. For instance, blood pressure drops after time spent in a spa.
