So in this article today, I’m going to talk about hydromassage chairs, what they provide you with, how they work, and all.

Let’s start with the basics first; I’m sure you don’t know much about hydromassage, just like I had no idea about it. You can call it an effective yet simple way to experience the benefits of a full-body human administered massage while being fully dressed.

It is inspired by the old Roman and Greek culture, where people used warm water as a therapy for mind, body, and soul. Hydromassage chairs provide you with similar heated water therapies along with a few modern-life benefits and that too, in a convenient way.

In a hydromassage chair therapy, heated water jets move back and forth all over your body. A hydromassage chair brings along a waterproof barrier, so there’s no way it could wet you while giving you a body massage. 

The pressure of water jets of a hydromassage chair can be altered. This way, you can have your very own customized body massage. Isn’t it absolutely extravagant and relaxing at the same time?

A Few Amazing Benefits of Hydromassage Chair Therapies

As a matter of fact, body massage brings along a wide range of benefits for you. The best part of the story is that these benefits are not only limited to human administered massage, but they’re more or less similar for chair massage therapies as well as hydromassage.

My mother initially had a routine of going to a spa every week, but it wasn’t economical, so she turned to chair massage. She purchased a Human Touch Novo XT Massage Chair, and she was thrilled without a shred of doubt. Yet now she has switched to a hydromassage chair, and she is delighted with the results.

Following are a few pros she has observed in the last two months of her hydromassage therapies:

Pain Management

If you’re sick and tired of everyday body aches and losing sleep over it, you definitely need to try a hydromassage chair therapy.

A hydromassage chair comes with water jets that are three times more efficient than those of a conventional whirlpool tub. It provides you with a relaxing body massage using lukewarm water.

You may have heard about heating massage chairs and how beneficial heat therapy is? Well, if you’re a fan of heat therapy, then a hydromassage chair is suitable for you.

The lukewarm water used in a hydromassage therapy helps provide oxygen to your shoulders, neck, back, and limbs while releasing muscle and joint tension and alleviating pain in the meantime. It is especially beneficial for arthritis patients or people suffering from conditions like fibromyalgia.

Body Cleansing

Have you ever heard of body cleansing? Well, it is something that has become quite popular in recent times. People are now switching to body cleansing diet, juice therapies, body cleansing massages, and whatnot?

In body cleansing, harmful toxins are released. As a result of that, it activates your immune systems, boosts your metabolic rate, takes care of the kidneys, reduces weight, and more.

They say, harmful toxins are eliminated from the muscles and tissues in a hydromassage with the help of water pressure. It improves the circulation of lymphatic flow while releasing body wastes. It is excellent for people that remain stressed due to higher levels of cortisol (a stress hormone).

Better Blood Circulation

Improved blood flow is key to healthy and active living. Heat water therapy in hydromassage significantly helps increase blood circulation.

You may have observed many sportsmen, especially athletes going for hydromassage. Every wonder why do they choose hydromassage over a regular human administered massage therapy?

It is because hydromassage provides them with incredible muscle warm-up. It also speeds up the healing process in case of any muscle injuries or body knots in general.

Stress & Anxiety

This one’s obvious, hydromassage is famously known for its stress-relieving properties. It works against stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins (the feel-good hormones) in the bloodstream. Oh, and it boosts your mood as well.

It is precisely the reason medical experts recommend hydromassage to people suffering from generalized anxiety disorder and episodic depression. It is also beneficial for people with migraines, gastrointestinal problems, and high blood pressure.

Apart from that, hydromassage chair therapies work well for sleep-related disorders. Regular hydromassage therapies can help you overcome issues like insomnia naturally by decreasing stress, promoting relaxation, and inducing sleep.

Just be sure to use your hydro massage chair for a particular time, let’s say 15-20 minutes. Needless to say, overuse of a massage chair may bring along several side effects. Hence, it is better to be safe than sorry.

So get rid of your old school massage therapies, and try hydromassage chair therapies instead. I’m certain with all these fabulous health benefits; it definitely deserves a try. After all, what’s so wrong about trying out something that has minimal to no cons?

I’m sure by now, you know your answer. Oh, you can thank me later for this.
