Hydrotherapy Tub Installers | Custom Built Hydrotherapy Tubs
If you have never spent time in a hydrotherapy tub, you are in for a treat. Hydrotherapy uses water to treat aches and pains, both in physical therapy and in everyday life. It takes advantage of water’s natural properties to soothe pain.
Often, tubs like these are located in spas, but it is becoming more and more popular for people to install them in their home bathrooms so that they can enjoy the benefits of hydrotherapy every day. What’s best, you can completely customize your tub to make it fit your style and offer all the options you want for a spa-like experience each evening.
How A Hydrotherapy Tub Works
A hydrotherapy tub can use various techniques – heat, bubbles, and currents – to make your stress or pain float away. Most people are familiar with whirlpool baths, which offer massaging jets similar to hot tubs. These jets can massage in different directions and at different pressures. Then, an air bath is filled with tiny bubbles, much like seltzer water or champagne. The minuscule bubbles are a light, soothing massage. Many baths also combine the features of whirlpool and air baths.
Driftbaths are another popular product. The jets create a soft current, giving the sense of sitting in a slowly moving stream, an incredibly relaxing experience. Finally, soaking tubs offer a relaxing experience – with no jets or air channels, they are simply deeper than a standard bathtub and allow full immersion in the water.
The Benefits of Hydrotherapy
When you relax in a hydrotherapy tub, you can allow yourself to let go of all of your problems. Many people compare the experience to getting a massage. This is because the gentle touch and relaxing warmth provide an excellent way to release any tension you’ve been holding in your body.
Hydrotherapy is not a new concept – it has been practiced for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians bathed with essential oils, a practice that combines aromatherapy and hydrotherapy. Many other cultures have prescribed warm water baths for curing illnesses. In nature, mineral hot springs have long been thought to have healing powers. By installing a hydrotherapy tub in your bathroom, you’ll be taking part in an ancient ritual that has provided soothing and healing to humans for millennia.
Hydrotherapy can also be used for more therapeutic purposes in addition to general relaxation and stress relief. It is often used in physical therapy, therefore, people who suffer from chronic pain might find that they would benefit greatly from a hydrotherapy tub. The tub can release the pressure on the muscles by allowing them to float, and can also encourage blood flow to the extremities through the warmth of the water. In therapeutic hydrotherapy, both hot and cold water are used for different purposes, in order to promote healing.
Begin a Healthy Routine
Whether you are seeking a hydrotherapy bath for relaxation or healing, it can be a life-changing addition to your bathroom. Most of us enjoyed long baths as children and then transition to more efficient showers in adulthood. However, a long, soaking bath is one of the best ways to relax at the end of a long day.
Since traditional tubs are not designed to allow the full immersion of most adults, a hydrotherapy tub is a wonderful way to get bathing back in your life. You can choose a tub that will provide you with a massage, the gentle current of a river, or simply a place to soak in warm water while enjoying a cup of tea and a good book. If you’ve ever enjoyed a jet tub in a hotel room, you know how rejuvenating a bath can be. Imagine that same experience in the comfort of your home.
