Hydrotherm massage is a deep, profoundly relaxing and beneficial massage technique, enhancing the effects of treatment into a new dimension – naturally.
Your entire treatment is carried out while you lie face up on warm Hydrotherm water filled cushions. These cushions mould to the contours of your body, providing support and assisting in perfect spinal alignment. There is no turning midway through the treatment and, therefore, no disturbing the relaxation. The warmth of the cushions help the effects of the massage by increasing circulation, and helping the body to relax more quickly.
The support of the cushions makes Hydrotherm particularly suitable in pregnancy.
The Hydrotherm massage system represents one of the single biggest advances in the approach and application of body treatments, since the couch replaced the floor. We have had continual glowing reports from clients who have experienced this therapy.
The medical profession provides a valuable and indispensable framework of technical care, however as therapists we can bring comfort and pleasure through touch. Touch in its many forms brings solace relief of aches, pain and stiffness and gives emotional support and reassurance. With a knowledgeable and well-guided hand, massage during pregnancy adds to the enjoyment of the birthing experience.
Hydrotherm offers a unique potential for comfort and in a combination with a sound underpinning knowledge of the physiological changes of pregnancy.
Pregnancy is often listed as a contra-indication to massage, but rarely with any justification. It is certainly important to consider treatment carefully, but correctly administered massage is not only potentially free of risk, but also extremely beneficial, comfortable and reassuring treatment during all stages of pregnancy.
The Hydrotherm system provides body support and comfort on warm water pillows, and the massage provides therapeutic relaxation.
