What is Hydrotherapy?
As you learn about the different features that you can add to your walk in tub, you’ll come across the option to add hydrotherapy.

Learn about what hydrotherapy is and how it can benefit you and you may find that it’s the perfect way to turn the walk in tub in your bathroom into a spa experience!
How Does it Work?
Hydrotherapy uses either air jets, water jets, or both to provide a relaxing massage for the person using the tub. Each feature provides a different type of massage or they can be combined to give you a unique and soothing experience.
- Air jets emit bubbles through outlets that are strategically placed around the seating area and provide a gentle massage with millions of tiny bubbles all around the person sitting in the tub. Many users claim that will say that air jets give a softer massage than water jets and they prefer it to whirlpool tubs.
- Water jets emit streams of water at varying amounts of pressure from outlets around the seating area. They give a bit of a harder massage, similar to deep tissue massages, that can ease sore muscles or get out knots that build up during the day.
- Air and water jets together give the user the ultimate hydrotherapy experience with both the soft massaging bubbles and the pressurized water jets.
- Soaking in hot water alone can help to ease sore muscles but hydrotherapy can also increase circulation, work out stiffness in the joints, and give an all-around spa experience right in your bathroom.
Persons with disabilities or mobility issues greatly benefit from hydrotherapy because they often find themselves putting excess stress on muscle groups that they wouldn’t be using so much otherwise. Hydrotherapy gives the user the benefit of easing these muscles every day and making them feel better on a regular basis. This not only improves mobility and health in general but also confidence, comfort, and independence.
