The Benefits of Hydrotherapy


There is nothing better than coming home from a hard day’s work or returning from a keep fit session or a long run and stepping into a shower. It’s even better if the shower has a steam or hydro massage function. Steam showers can provide certain health benefits, especially in the relief of aches and pains in your joints and muscles. If you are feeling a bit run down, taking a relaxing steam shower can soothe your body, helping to boost your defence mechanism and acting as a stress buster.

Water therapy, also known as hydrotherapy, has been practiced for thousands of years, evolving from primitive hot-spring baths to modern in-home spa and hydro massage therapies. Stepping into a shower cabinet can be like stepping into another world and there are plenty of gadgets that can add to the experience. Some people may find it difficult to get into a tub, but a shower cabin could be the answer.

Most health spas and hotel resorts feature hydrotherapy suites, but how much nicer to be able to take advantage of these therapies in your own home. Insignia specialise in steam and hydro massage showers and are experts in the field, supplying shower cabins for many years to happy customers.

Just what are the benefits of hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is known to stimulate the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain reliever to further reduce muscle soreness and improve circulation. This can help heal injured tissues and rehabilitate damaged muscles or joints. The increased blood flow is good for the circulation of white blood cells around the body, with the added benefit of good lymph drainage allowing immune system fluid to be moved through the body more efficiently, strengthening the immune system and helping to fight colds and illnesses. Hydrotherapy also encourages detoxification, flushing out impurities and toxins through the skin, helping to detoxify the body.
