Reducing stress is all about quieting your mind and letting relaxation take over. Hydromassage jets can help work out the tension that manifests itself in physical form. When combined with deep breathing and a calm setting, hydrotherapy can be your stress-free haven.

Recovery From Exercise

Immersing yourself in warm water, enhanced by the powerful massaging pulse of the jets, can relieve post-workout aches and pains and help release lactic acid (the cause of muscle soreness). You can even target specific areas like your legs after a long run or your shoulders after a day of weight training.
