Hydrotherapy harnesses the miraculous properties of water to aid in everything from accelerating the recovery of an injury to reducing stress.
Learn more about how this simple yet powerful treatment can benefit you, and how it has been improved upon in Premier Care's exclusive Hydrovescent Therapy.
Hydrotherapy is a completely natural therapy that uses water to promote health. Most people are well aware of how important it is to drink enough water, but they may not realize that the very same substance can treat illness or injury and promote general health outside the body too. Internal hydrotherapy involves drinking water for its health benefits. This type of therapy is an ancient holistic remedy, where people may "take the waters" at mineral springs for their health.
External hydrotherapy is equally powerful and has many beneficial effects. Depending on your goals, you may alter your water temperature accordingly. Treatments may also use streams of water or air, as in a hydro spa. The gentle pressure from the circulating water can further enhance the bathing experience. External hydrotherapy is a simple yet effective treatment option that you can enjoy at home or seek out at a spa. The right type of water can help with a variety of health issues.
Premier Care's Exclusive Hydrovescent Therapy is a specialized type of hydrotherapy that lends a gentle touch to the bathing experience. While some easy access tubs have potentially harsh jets using water, Premier's Hydrovescent Therapy equipped Walk-In Baths use gentle air jets instead. This provides a softer touch that's ideal for sensitive patients. Particularly through the progression of the aging process, intense pressure for an extended amount of time may cause skin abrasions or bruising to skin, so a lighter touch is sought after. The ideal solution is found with the light refreshing bubbles of Premier Care's Hydrovescent Therapy.
Hydrovescent Therapy also distinguishes itself by using clean air jets. Water jets push the same water through the tub again and again. This can also pose a threat to those who experience skin irritation, whose skin conditions or minor wounds can be exposed to infection. Instead, Premier Care's Hydrovescent Therapy circulates clean, fresh air bubbles through the duration of the spa cycle to ensure the highest levels of hygiene are maintained.
Taking the soothing benefits of traditional hydrotherapy to new heights, Premier Care has engineered our Spa Series Walk-In Baths to harness the power of water paired with a gentle pulsation of air massage jets for soothing pressure with the Hydrovescent Therapy feature. Allowing bathers to soak in levels deeper than conventional bathtubs, our Walk-In Tubs enable people to immerse themselves in the water. The water helps take the weight off the body, relieving joint pain.
Water is naturally soothing, making hydrotherapy an excellent choice for anyone interested in a relaxing treatment to help with stress. Hot water relaxes the muscles, stimulates the immune system, and causes blood vessels to dilate. When paired with the Hydrovescent Therapy treatment, bathers often experience greater invigoration and more fulfilling periods of relaxation. Our customers also frequently comment that the massage stimulation from the air jets has greatly improved circulatory and immune health.
Hydrotherapy has many uses. With a home hydro spa, people can promote ongoing health and wellness with regular hydrotherapy that's as simple as a long hot bath with soothing jets along the back. In a spa setting, hydrotherapy is usually incorporated into treatments that may include wraps, compresses, aromatherapy, and other enhancements like sea salts or mud.
Hydrotherapy is also used in physical therapy. The water makes it easier for recovering patients to move by removing much of the weight on their body. Meanwhile, the water supplies resistances that will help strengthen recovering muscles and joints. Some specialized hydrotherapy tubs are equipped with underwater treadmills, support bars, and other enhancements for this purpose.
