People love to visit spas and salons for massages, facials, body scrubs, and all sorts of other treatments. But there is a new trend that is becoming popular: hydrotherapy. A Vichy table shower session combines the benefits of both massage therapy and hydrotherapy. This unique combination has been proven to reduce stress levels and provide pain relief by using water and working your body’s pressure points.
What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is the use of water in any form to promote healing. It can be used externally or internally and has been used for centuries to treat a variety of health problems. Some of the most common forms of hydrotherapy include:
Vichy Table Shower
At Qi Massage and Natural Healing Spa, our Vichy table shower is a type of hydrotherapy that uses warm water jets to massage the body. This is a great treatment for relieving stress, tension headaches, and improving circulation. We even have two Vichy showers in one room, making it the ideal spot for couples!
A jacuzzi is another form of hydrotherapy. Many people are familiar with jacuzzis. A jacuzzi is a whirlpool bath that uses jets of hot water and air to create bubbles. Jacuzzis are known for their relaxing properties and can be used to relieve stress, tension headaches, and muscle aches.
Steam baths, also known as saunas or Turkish baths, use heat and steam to relax the muscles. These are great for calming the mind and boosting circulation.
These are baths where you only sit up to your waist in water. They are often used to relieve pain and inflammation in the lower abdomen, such as during menstruation or after childbirth.
A foot bath involves soaking your feet in warm water with various herbs or salts added to it. This is a great way to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and treat conditions like athlete’s foot.
Cold Water Immersion
Cold water immersion is a great way to treat inflammation, pain, and stress. It involves repeatedly immersing the body in cold water or standing under cold showers for short periods of time.
Warm Water Bath
A warm water bath involves sitting or lying in warm water. These are great for improving circulation and reducing pain from arthritis, muscle injuries, and tendonitis.
Aquatic therapy involves exercising in water to improve muscle strength and tone. It is great for people who are recovering from an injury or surgery, due to the reduced stress on joints.
Contrast Water Therapy
Contrast water therapy is a type of hydrotherapy that uses alternating hot and cold water. This is great for improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and relieving pain.
The Benefits of Hydrotherapy
There are many health benefits of hydrotherapy. Some of these include:
One of the main benefits of hydrotherapy is its ability to promote relaxation. The heat and pressure from the water jets can help to ease tension in the muscles and mind, leading to a sense of calmness and peace.
Increase Blood Flow
The massage and heat from hydrotherapy can help to improve blood flow, which can support overall health and wellbeing. Better blood flow can also lead to improved skin health, better cognitive function, and reduced inflammation.
Hydrotherapy has been shown to boost metabolism and encourage weight loss. The combination of the heat from the water and the massage from the jets can encourage your body to burn calories – and this leads to weight loss.
Hydrotherapy is great for relieving pain from a variety of sources. The heat and pressure from the water jets can help to relieve chronic pain, muscle pain, and joint pain.
Improve Joint Pain
Hydrotherapy is a great way to improve joint pain. The warm water can help decrease stiffness and inflammation, while the massage from the jets can work out kinks in your body that have been causing you discomfort.
Form of Natural Medicine
Hydrotherapy is a form of natural medicine that has been used for centuries. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions, both physical and mental, without the use of drugs or surgery.
Boost Your Immune System
Hydrotherapy can actually help strengthen your immune system. Studies have shown that spending time in a warm bath can improve your immune function and help to protect against the common cold.
