Bhubaneshwar: The use of hydrotherapy or underwater massage dates back to ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, when the practice focused primarily on bath-style possibilities for relaxation in hot or cold water. While bathing and exercising in water are both considered hydrotherapy techniques, hydromassage has evolved into various modern machines.
During the underwater massage, the water jet is directed towards certain problem areas of the body under water. The procedure allows a profound effect on connective tissue, muscles and joints.
The underwater massage soothes, tones the skin and promotes weight loss. The procedure is used for therapeutic purposes, as well as cosmetics, as well as in sports medicine.
The underwater massage bath is equipped with a light therapy solution. During the procedure, the diodes built into the bath change color according to a special algorithm, creating a pleasant mood and visual pleasure.
Thanks to the ion filter, the air in the treatment room is specially purified. The ions bind to microparticles in the air (dust, pollen, bacteria, etc.) and the air is neutralized. The ion filter inside provides fresh, clean outside air.
