Dry hydrotherapy refers to a specific therapeutic technique that is often used to provide relaxation, stress reduction, and pain relief. With the use of jets of water and heated air, a dry hydrotherapy massage table can create a rejuvenating and relaxing massage without the need to get wet. Dr. Sean Seivert offers this unique therapy option from Atlas Natural Medicine’s Taylor, TX, location.
How Does Dry Hydrotherapy Work?
A dry hydrotherapy massage table or bed is designed with a complex system of oscillating or pulsating water streams or jets located beneath the table’s waterproof top layer that is either a mattress or cushion. The water streams and heated air combine to create a soothing, therapeutic experience.
Those who choose to receive this type of therapy can adjust the water jets’ speed, location, and intensity, as this allows for targeting problematic areas or the preferred massage experience.
The Benefits of Dry Hydrotherapy
Dry hydrotherapy advocates believe that this type of therapy has the potential to provide therapeutic benefits that can be used to treat specific conditions or as a complement to another therapeutic methodology –
- Muscle Relaxation – which addresses muscle soreness, stiffness, and pain.
- Pain relief – dry hydrotherapy helps relieve joint pain, back pain, arthritis pain, and more. The warm water and gentle pressure generated by the jets effectively reduce pain and discomfort.
- Stress Reduction – the massage helps to reduce stress by releasing endorphins.
- Improved Range of Motion – which is helpful for those with mobility problems or recovering from an injury.
- Enriched Blood Circulation – better circulation supports healing and overall health.
- Enhanced Lymphatic Drainage – the stimulating jets can help remove toxins from the body.
- Reduced Swelling – certain conditions that create swelling may respond to the pressure from the water jets.
- Joint Rehabilitation – the gentle pressure can support healing and recovery.
- Plus, there are many indirect benefits, including improved sleep, skin health, and mental relaxation.
Unlike the more traditional approaches to hydrotherapy (i.e., a hot tub or whirlpool), a dry hydrotherapy massage table permits people to receive and experience the benefits of a water-based massage – without a need to get wet or change clothes because there is no requirement to become fully immersed in water. As a result, dry hydrotherapy offers a convenient option for many who prefer to remain dry during therapy.
