Benefits Of Hydrotherapy
Stresses and strains from everyday living can cause muscle tension and restricted blood flow, giving rise to tiredness and headaches. These in turn can affect our moods and thoughts. Spaform has teamed up with medical researchers to look into the positive effects that regular use of a spa can have.
Bathing in hot water causes blood vessels to dilate, improving circulation and increasing cardiac output (without extra stress being placed on the heart). There is an overall increase of fluid in the body, indicating that toxins surrounding injuries and excess fluid in joints are returned to the blood stream. This would relieve symptoms for sufferers of rheumatism and arthritis.
Immersion in water and the resulting buoyancy reduces body weight by 90%, taking the pressure off aching joints and tired muscles. This muscular relaxation augments the dilation of arteries and the benefits of improved circulation as well as improving joint mobility.
The most important aspect of a spa is its ability to provide hydro-massage. Created by a mixture of air and water pumped at pressure through our specially designed "vibro" and "pulse" jets, these combine to provide the ultimate in hydrotherapy. Muscle tension is relieved and the body's natural healing process is stimulated through the ancient art of massage.
As well as the physical benefits that a spa can provide, the increase in fluids dilutes the amount of "stress hormones" in the blood, including nor adrenalin, helping you to forget the stresses of the day and bringing you into a state of calm relaxation.
