What is a Hot Tub Massage?


Hot tubs are designed to move around streams of water through their therapeutic massage jets. The water flows in different directions to focus on specific areas of your body and can target problem areas such as joint pain or be used to just relax and de-stress.

There are three factors that contribute to a hot tub massage - the heat, water buoyancy, and massage jets. Together, these elements create a relaxing hydromassage experience. The water's heat raises your body's temperature, which increases circulation. Water buoyancy makes your body feel weightless, which relieves pressure on joints and muscles with the relaxing sensation of being as light as a feather. Specialized hydrotherapy massage jets bring the final element of targeting the water and pressure to the areas of your body that you want to treat.


With a hot tub massage, bathers feel a number of benefits which include:

● Relief of aches and pains

● Relief of tension from joints and muscles

● Reduced stress and anxiety

● Full body relaxation


Below, we will highlight how to choose the best massage features when shopping for a hot tub.


Therapeutic Programs


Having multiple jets in a hot tub is usually a good thing, but it doesn't mean that all hot tub jets are equal or provide the same level of quality when it comes to therapeutic massage features.When shopping for a hot tub, ensure the model you choose has a wide range of massage programs that will target different symptoms and conditions. Looks for programs that help treat back and leg pain, arthritis, inflamed joints and other conditions such as insomnia or headaches.

Each Hydropool hot tub has been designed after extensive research with both chiropractors and physiotherapists to uncover the best placement and jet range to deliver a luxury massage experience. A popular style of Hydropool hot tubs uses the four-zone system which conveniently allows users to select the therapeutic program they wish to use from a touchpad. To begin, the user sits in the seat labeled zone one and is notified when to move to the next seat and the system provides a full body therapeutic massage. Another benefit of the four zone system is that users can select massage programs for their individual needs such as neck pain or spinal tension.


Choosing a hot tub that has a wide range of massage capabilities will ensure that everyone in your family can benefit from a personalized massage tailored to their current and ongoing needs.


Jet Location


To get the best massage, choose a hot tub that has strategically placed jets that will target pressure points with a number of different massage options. Hot tubs that offer a different jet arrangement in each seat will provide the widest range of massage possibilities.


Aromatherapy and Light Therapy


To truly enhance your massage experience, incorporate aromatherapy and chromatherapy (light therapy) into your hot tub massage routine. These treatments can help reduce stress, improve your mood, help you sleep better and energize you.
