How Hydrotherm massage works

Massage generally involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It also helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas; it is also used in support of other therapies to assist in the recovery of muscular injuries.


During a Hydrotherm treatment the MASSAGE THERAPY / MASSAGE TECHNOLOGY therapists works underneath, around and behind the client, providing a three-dimensional massage experience. It is therefore a very relaxing treatment as the client does not have to turn over during the treatment. The therapists’ hands slide between the thermal cushion filled with water and the clients’ skin; the clients own weight applies the correct pressure to the problematic areas. Leaving the client feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Massage therapists may suffer from tension, painful wrists, and lower back pain as result of the demanding career. This system is used to alleviate pain and protect the therapists’ wrists while delivering a relaxing treatment.
