Hot tub hydrotherapy has long been a favorite of athletes for the relief of post-training muscle soreness, strain, and injuries. Even if you’re not an athlete, staying active, whether it’s a daily walk, a game of tennis, bicycling, or gardening, can leave you feeling some aches and pains. For participants in recreational sports, most injuries are not the result of sudden catastrophes, but come from overuse, or not being properly conditioned for a particular activity.
As an American Select Spa owner, you can experience the post-workout benefits of hydrotherapy, right in your own backyard. In both Western and Eastern healing traditions, professionals routinely recommend or prescribe hydrotherapy for the relief of pain caused by overworked muscles, arthritis pain, and certain types of injuries.
Exercise and recovery: Find a balance with American Select Spas
Whether you’ve spent a day cleaning out the garage or an afternoon on the golf course, you might be feeling some extra fatigue and muscle soreness. One of the best ways to alleviate the discomfort is by easing into a warm-water massage in an American Select Spa. The combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage in an American Select Spa is designed to deliver a highly effective hydromassage.
Hydrotherapy is used to “treat injuries and aid in the rehabilitation of the athlete,” according to the book, Principles of Manual Sports Medicine by Steven J. Karageanes. Writing about the effects of a warm-water whirlpool, Karageanes states, “It is believed that the circulating water causes mechanical stimulation to the skin, which causesa reflex anesthetic effect and a decrease in muscle spasm.”
The after-workout health benefits you get from an American Select Spa are far-reaching. American Select Spas’ hydrotherapy has the ability to:
• Mitigate the symptoms of muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries • Increase blood flow and circulation • Alleviate back pain • Ease the symptoms of arthritis • Help restore range of motion • Bring the body into a more calm state
