Hydrotherapy-Not Just A Bunch Of Hot Air

June 01, 2006


Little Rock, ARK. (June, 2006) – Hydrotherapy, the use of water for therapeutic treatment, has long been recognized for its benefits to those suffering from arthritis, inflamed and swollen nerves, and other chronic conditions. In recent years however, the benefits of hydrotherapy have been clinically proven as beneficial to anyone looking to improve their health and general well-being. Hydrotherapy is divided into four categories: soaking, whirlpool, air and combination air-whirlpool.

“When designing a bath, we not only work with engineers, but also physical therapists to ensure that our products are the most beneficial on the market,” says Remo Jacuzzi, founder and president of Jason International, a leading manufacturer of hydrotherapy bath products. “We are committed to helping people live healthier lives through our products.”

A recent study by the Health Psychology Clinic at University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis found that after ten minutes of bathing in either still or moving warm water, healthy adults experienced increased feelings of well-being and a decreased state of anxiety.

“Bathing actually helps people stay healthy, both mentally and physically,” says physical therapy consultant for Jason International, Rob Tillman, PT, MOMT. “Jason International produces ergonomically designed baths to keep you in the optimal bathing position with state-of-the-art turbulence systems to improve circulation, increase tissue flexibility and promote the removal of muscular waste products.”

One of Jason’s newest products, the Home Spa, was designed to meet and exceed the growing demand for an inside-the-home spa. The fill and drain combination air-whirlpool spa will be the centerpiece of a health and wellness, fitness or family room, and is large enough to comfortably accommodate three or more people. The ergonomically designed spa is easy to enter and features two sets of armrests, two jetted neck pillows and 25 jets arranged to provide specific benefits to different muscle groups.

Jason International has five complete bath collections, including the Home Spa, Carrera™, forma™, Designer and Integrity™ Collections. Jason’s collections feature various designs, and also patented technology systems to ensure the most quiet and clean bath possible. To those new to buying a bath, deciphering between hydrotherapy options can be a daunting task; therefore, Jason has outlined the options below to help consumers navigate the multiple hydrotherapy choices.

The four types of hydrotherapy baths include soaking, AirMasseur™ (air), whirlpool and combination air-whirlpool. Because each type of hydrotherapy is able to stimulate different receptors located at varying depths of the skin and muscle tissue, each offer unique experiences and results. Regardless of hydrotherapy preference, consumers should select a bath that is ergonomically designed to provide the optimal level of comfort and relaxation while bathing.

Soaking Hydrotherapy
Submerging in warm water hydrates the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) making the skin feel softer. Soaking stimulates the skin’s temperature receptors located in the dermis (the layer of the skin under the epidermis), helps your pores eliminate toxins and boosts cardiac output, improves circulation and promotes relaxation.

AirMasseur Hydrotherapy
Starting with all the benefits of soaking baths, the air jets add million of air bubbles which stimulate the skin’s light touch receptors located in the subcutaneous tissue (just below the dermis) producing an overall calming effect.

Whirlpool Hydrotherapy
Whirlpool jets produce a stream of pressurized air and water that can be directed to specific parts of the body. These powerful jets reach deeply, with sufficient energy to stimulate the pressure receptors of the muscles and their surrounding fascia (located just above the muscle). In addition, whirlpool jets enhance tissue flexibility and further increase circulation while promoting rejuvenation of the muscular tissue.

Combination Air-Whirlpool Hydrotherapy
The air-whirlpool bath is the most technologically advanced system combining soaking, AirMasseur, and whirlpool hydrotherapy. Used together, these types of hydrotherapy promote maximum relaxation, enabling the body to receive deeper and greater therapeutic benefits.
