More than a feeling: Quality spa therapy helps

In this article we discuss and explain the many benefits of warm water and hydrotherapy that can be gained from owning a Sundance Spa bought from Maurice’s.

A warm water massage can be a restorative, therapeutic experience. Since ancient times, people around the world have recognised the healing properties of hot water.

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 centres 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 to help 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, people recognize the benefits of a spa. The best spas, like those made by Sundance, can promote health and wellness with hydrotherapy.

With a combination of high-performance jets and advanced seat designs, Sundance moves water in new ways, delivering the following positive spa benefits:

  • Less stress
  • Better sleep
  • Relief from muscle soreness
  • Fewer symptoms of arthritis and back pain

Spa therapy works. Sit in a Sundance, adjust the jet flow, and feel amazing results; a sense of calm and comfort; pain relief; rejuvenation and increased energy.
