Premier Care has taken the soothing benefits of traditional hydrotherapy to new heights by engineering our Walk-In Bath Spa Series to harness the power of water and combined it with gentle pulsating air massage jets in our exclusive Hydrovescent® Therapy feature.
What is Hydrotherapy?
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 also treat illness or injury and promote general health outside the body. Internal hydrotherapy involves drinking water for its health benefits. This type of therapy is an ancient holistic remedy, where people "take the waters" at mineral springs as a way to achieve better 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 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 adds a gentle touch to the bathing experience. While other Walk-In Tubs on the market have potentially harsh water jets, Premier's Hydrovescent® Therapy 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 period of time may cause skin abrasions or bruising, so a lighter touch is preferable. 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 pose a threat to those who experience skin irritation, or whose skin conditions or minor wounds can be exposed to infection. Premier Care's Hydrovescent® Therapy on the other hand, circulates clean, fresh air bubbles through the duration of the spa cycle to ensure the highest level of hygiene is maintained without the abrasive qualities that often accompany harsh water jets.
Benefits of Hydrotherapy
Taking the soothing benefits of traditional hydrotherapy to new heights, Premier Care has engineered its Spa Series Walk-In Baths to harness the power of water paired with a gentle pulsation of air massage jets with the Hydrovescent® Therapy feature. Allowing bathers to soak in levels deeper than conventional bathtubs, our Walk-In Tubs enable complete water immersion. 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 frequently comment that the massage stimulation from the air jets has greatly improved their circulatory and immune health.
Uses of Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy has many uses. With a home hydro-spa, anyone 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 resistance that can help strengthen recovering muscles and joints. Some specialized hydrotherapy tubs are equipped with underwater treadmills, support bars, and other enhancements for this purpose.
External hydrotherapy can aid in the treatment of:
- Headaches or migraines
- Sleep disorders
- Stomach problems
- Joint, muscle, and nerve problems
- Poor blood circulation
Premier Care's Hydrovescent® Therapy is an exclusive type of hydrotherapy that uses air jets and moving bubbles instead of harsh water jets and is a popular treatment for conditions like:
- High blood pressure
- Multiple sclerosis
Hydrotherapy is a perfectly safe treatment option for many patients. Cold baths are not appropriate for young or elderly patients, and saunas may be unsafe for those with heart conditions. However, this still leaves ample hydrotherapy options that will work for at-risk individuals. With a spacious Walk-In Tub from Premier Care, you can experience all the benefits Hydrovescent® Therapy has to offer.
Hydrotherapy is easy to incorporate in nearly any setting. Premier Care's Hydrovescent® Therapy equipped tubs provide a new world of health and treatment options at home, and can fit into most traditional bathtub footprints. Sink into a soothing tub and try it yourself.
