A spa vacation begins at home, with a Signature Spa hydrotherapy treatment. Experience the heat, buoyancy and massage that comprise hydrotherapy. As Signature Spa jets massage muscles, joints and pressure points, the water’s heat dilates blood vessels to increase blood flow to sore or damaged tissue. Because the water’s buoyancy reduces your body weight by 90 percent, pressure on joints and muscles is virtually eliminated.
The Signature Spa USA hydrotherapeutic blend of heat, buoyancy, and jet massage can relieve symptoms of arthritis and repairs damaged tissue. Regular hydrotherapy can also be an effective way to calm frayed nerves and ease the symptoms of stress.
The three elements of Signature Spas USA’s hydromassage:
Improves circulation and speeds recovery in damaged tissue.
Reduces effects of pressure on joints and spine.
Relieves muscle tension and alleviates stress.
The healing benefits of hydrotherapy:
The healing benefits of hydrotherapy have been known to all of the world’s great cultures, with a history that dates back thousands of years.
Ancient Egyptians bathed in heated waters treated with flowers and herbs, while the Greeks believed that water therapy was essential to optimal health. In India, hydrotherapy was an essential ingredient to well-being, with treatment that included inhaling steam to optimize the respiratory system.
The Romans were famous for their hot spring baths, and developed architecturally magnificent healing centers built around the use of water for wellness. Much like today’s spas, the Roman baths included heated pools used in conjunction with steam treatments. Japan and Germany have historically used natural hot springs for hydrotherapy in an attempt to treat medical conditions, enhance beauty, and promote healthy aging.
In its modern form, hot tub hydrotherapy has been found to be effective in treating muscle pains and stiffness, inflammatory disease, and the symptoms of daily stress. Particularly effective are spa hydrotherapy treatments that combine the components of heated water, water massage, and reduction of pressure on sore joints by decreasing body weight through buoyancy.
Today, Signature Spas USA continues these centuries-old traditions by enhancing the restorative properties of water. Signature Spas USA’s hydrotherapy uses massage, heat and buoyancy to accelerate your body’s natural healing process, and promote physical and mental well-being.
Arthritis and hot tub hydrotherapy:
Over the years, hot tub hydrotherapy has evolved from “simply relaxing” to “physically therapeutic” for several medical conditions, among them arthritis.
Arthritis, which is an inflammation of the joints, causes pain and swelling as well as decreased range of motion. Researchers believe that time spent in a hot tub can help ease the aches and pains of arthritis while allowing the joints a higher degree of mobility.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, gentle stretching exercises should be done every day to help strengthen muscles and bones and increase flexibility. Further, the Foundation states that flexibility exercises can help protect joints by reducing the risk of joint injury; daily exercises can be done in water such as a hot tub, and are particularly useful for easing stiff arthritic joints in the morning.
Additionally, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine states that in the small number of controlled studies done on hydrotherapy for rheumatoid arthritis, many have reported benefit.
The buoyant warm water hydrotherapy of a Signature Spa makes it the ideal environment for relieving arthritis symptoms while improving overall range of motion.
Feel better with regular Signature Spa hydrotherapy sessions.
When arthritis strikes, simple activities of daily living, like buttoning a shirt or starting the car, become difficult due to stiff joints and decreased mobility. Even minor arthritis pain can interfere with your daily routine.
Signature Spas USAs’ hydrotherapy can help relieve arthritis symptoms:
- The heat from the warm water relaxes the entire body as it increases blood flow.
- The massaging action of the jets loosens muscle tension and soothes sore joints
- water’s buoyancy makes you feel lighter, with up to 90% of your body weight lifted.
Hydrotherapy and Type 2 Diabetes
The New England Journal of Medicine reported on a study (08-16-1999) regarding the benefits of physical exercise and therapy from the use of hot tub spas. As reported, patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus were studied using a hot tub 30 minutes a day, 6 days per week. After only 10 days, patients required reduced doses of insulin, lost weight, showed distinct decreases in plasma glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin, and benefited from improved sleep and an increased general sense of well-being.
The study also reported of benefits for patients who are unable to exercise. These patients would specifically benefit from increased blood flow to skeletal muscles. Once again, if you have this condition or other medical issues, you must consult with your physician prior to starting any hydrotherapy program.
Sleep problems keeping you awake?
According to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 70 million people in the United States are affected by sleep problems. A poll released by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) found that 43% of women surveyed say that daytime sleepiness interferes with their daily activities.
One way to ease into a deep, restful sleep: The Better Sleep Council recommends establishing a relaxing bedtime routine, such as soaking in hot water (a hot tub or bath) to help maintain a healthy sleep cycle. The gently massaging hot water of a Signature Spa is a natural place to establish a deeply relaxing, nighttime routine.
Relaxing in a Signature Spa can promote a good night’s sleep.
Whether it’s difficulty falling asleep or episodes of waking up and being unable to easily go back to sleep during the night, you probably experience a less-than-good night’s sleep from time to time. When lack of sleep becomes a chronic problem, it can start to affect you in many ways.
How important is a restful night’s sleep?
Studies show that:
- Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory.
- Chronic sleep loss affects the way the body processes and stores carbohydrates, which may lead to weight gain.
Poor sleep can contribute to accidents while driving.
- Lack of sleep can make you irritable, and make it hard to concentrate.
- Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension.
- Eventually, chronic sleep loss can diminish the disease-fighting capabilities of the immune system.
Learning to relax in preparation for a good night’s sleep can help improve the chances of falling, and staying asleep. Hydrotherapy by Signature Spas USA helps ease tension and promote relaxation. Heat loosens constricted blood flow. Buoyancy reduces body weight by up to 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles. And massage helps to work out stiffness and muscle soreness.
Signature Spas USA’s hydrotherapy also stimulates the production of endorphins, which naturally block pain and stress signals from reaching the brain. Their effects can linger after your spa session has ended, too, so you feel more content, and ready to sleep.
Signature Spa jets provide many massage variations that can help you release feelings of stress. Our jets, for example, pinpoint the neck muscles, where many people experience tension. You can opt for high- or low-level massaging action with these, and many others, Signature Spa jets.
Why you need stress relief.
According to the National Institute of Health, stress is a normal part of life that can result from any situation or thought that produces feelings of frustration, anger, or anxiety. Whether you are nervous about speaking in public or impatient because you’re stuck in traffic, you usually recognize the uncomfortable symptoms of stress.
Stress can also be helpful, if it encourages you to meet a deadline or change a situation that has created frustration in your life. But on a daily basis, stress can take a toll by causing unnecessary muscles tension, headaches, other types of pain, and irritability! And long-term stress can increase the risk of diseases like depression and heart disease, and may lead to other problems.
Finding ways to de-stress is important to achieving optimal health and well-being. For centuries, people have sought warm water therapies for relaxation, and healing. Today, we know that effective hydrotherapy can produce positive physical and mental changes. A few moments in a Signature Hot Tub, on a regular basis, can help relieve the symptoms of stress by promoting relaxation, decreasing muscle tension, and helping you get a good night’s sleep. Talk to your local dealer about the features that make Signature Hot Tub’s hydrotherapy so effective.
