The word hydrotherapy refers to the use of water, cold treatments, ice packs, vapors, saunas, hot springs, water exercises and
water massage for medicinal use. There are many different forms of hydrotherapy, but we will focus our attention of the
therapeutic benefits of water massage as offered by Bath City Tubs installed by their factory-trained AAMA certified
The Overall Benefits of Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy increases blood circulation, including circulation of the immune system’s white blood cells. Hydrotherapy also
increases the body’s production of endogenous opioid peptides, particularly endorphins. Enhanced circulation and increased
endorphins strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation, heal injured tissue, improve well-being and energize the body.
Respiratory Infections and Ailments
Patients with upper respiratory infections including pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma and common colds will find that the steam
from a warm tub greatly reduces inflammation and promotes open airways. Breathing in the warm steam will also help
increase white blood cells which will help speed up the recovery of ailments associated with respiratory infections.
In a study conducted by Dr. P. L. Hooper in Loveland, CO he monitored patients of Type 2 Diabetes for 3 weeks. Dr. Hooper’s
patients were instructed to soak in hot water for 30 minutes a day, six days a week for the duration of his study. His findings
were surprising. Patient’s blood sugar levels were reduced by approximately 13%. After the course of his three week study Dr.
Hooper noted that many of the patients were able to reduce their insulin doses. Continued studies show that hydrotherapy not
only helps reduce the insulin doses for type 2 diabetic patients, but also helps swelling, joint tenderness and insomnia often
associated with diabetes.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis benefit from hot tubs, especially when used in conjunction with massage or water exercises.
Hydrotherapy is known to reduce the inflammation and also increase blood flow in extremities that suffer from the affects of
Rheumatoid Arthritis. A recent report conclusively revealed that patients who engaged in hydrotherapy treatment showed a
significantly greater improvement in joint tenderness and a wider range of knee movement than patients who treated
Rheumatoid Arthritis by means other than hydrotherapy.
Almost all people suffer from insomnia - or the inability to fall asleep - at some point in their lives. For some people, insomnia
can be a very severe problem, depriving their bodies of needed rest and making them feel irritable and depressed, and
making them more prone to sickness. Warm baths have been shown to improve both your ability to fall asleep and the quality
of your sleep, and as such, hydrotherapy is on of the most popular home remedies for insomnia and sleeplessness.
Insomnia is generally caused by having too much blood in the brain. Hot baths dilate capillaries in the body and increase
blood flow to external areas and to the limbs, drawing blood from the brain. A lower core body temperature has also been
shown to help achieve a deeper sleep. Soaking in a warm tub at 104 degrees Fahrenheit tow hours before bedtime will both
lower your core body temperature and draw blood from your brain, priming you for restful sleep. Enjoying the stress reduction
benefits of air and water jet massages will further relax you and make sleeping even easier.
Treating Back Pain with Hydrotherapy
Behind colds and the flu, back pain is the #2 reason in the USA for doctor visits. Back pain can be caused by a number of
things, including stiff or sore muscles, diseases, disorders or injuries of the vertebrae and connective tissue, and pinched
nerves. Studies conducted over the last ten years have shown that people who suffer from back pain and who use
hydrotherapy as a treatment experience marked reductions in pain versus those people who do not use hydrotherapy. In
addition, people who treat their back pain with hydrotherapy use fewer drugs to control their pain, so they don't experience any
of the negative side effects associated with some of these drugs.
