Whether you’re juggling work and family, recovering from a joint or muscle injury, or simply needing to unwind from the day’s stresses, spa hydrotherapy provides both relaxation, healing effects and nourishing rejuvenation.
The healing benefits of hydrotherapy have been known to all of the world’s great cultures, with a history that dates back thousands of years.
Ancient Egyptians bathed in heated waters treated with flowers and herbs, while the Greeks believed that water therapy was essential to optimal health. In India, hydrotherapy was an essential ingredient to well-being, with treatment that included inhaling steam to optimize the respiratory system.
The Romans were famous for their hot spring baths, and developed architecturally magnificent healing centers built around the use of water for wellness. Much like today’s spas, the Roman baths included heated pools used in conjunction with steam treatments. Japan and Germany have historically used natural hot springs for hydrotherapy in an attempt to treat medical conditions, enhance beauty, and promote healthy aging.
In its modern form, spa hydrotherapy has been found to be effective in treating muscle pains and stiffness, inflammatory disease, and the symptoms of daily stress. Particularly effective are spa hydrotherapy treatments that combine the components of heated water, water massage, and reduction of pressure on sore joints by decreasing body weight through buoyancy.
Today, Sundance continues these centuries-old traditions by enhancing the restorative properties of water. Sundance spa hydrotherapy uses massage, heat and buoyancy to accelerate your body’s natural healing process, and promote physical and mental well-being.
A spa vacation begins at home, with a Sundance hydrotherapy spa treatment. Experience the heat, buoyancy and massage that comprises hydrotherapy.
As Sundance jets massage muscles, joints and pressure points, the water’s heat dilates blood vessels to increase blood flow to sore or damaged tissue. Because the water’s buoyancy reduces your body weight by 90 percent, pressure on joints and muscles is virtually eliminated.
