Essential Tips To Create The Ultimate Hydrotherapy Bathroom

Hydrotherapy is a Greek term that means ‘water therapy’ and as the term implies, it is a healing technique that has been used since ancient times to treat ailments and boost the circulatory system. It can help to reduce swelling, ease pain, and help the body recover more quickly from intense exercise. 

Some people may use hydrotherapy to address specific health concerns such as arthritis, while others may simply find it leaves them feeling calmer and less stressed. Hydrotherapy treatments were once considered to be a luxury of exclusive spa hotels, but it’s now becoming more common to have an at-home multi-jet hydrotherapy system. 

However, it can be a daunting process trying to decide which products might work best for you. It’s a significant investment and you are likely to live with your choice for years to come, so it needs some careful consideration. Here are some tips on creating the right hydrotherapy bathroom for you.

Bath or shower?

First of all, decide if you would prefer to have a bath or shower. Of course, if space and money are no object, then you can choose to have both, but most people tend to have a preference for one or the other.

Showers can be quicker and more convenient to use for people with mobility issues. However, some people prefer being submerged in water and enjoy the experience of soaking in a tub. Bear in mind that hydrotherapy tubs tend to be narrower than regular bathtubs to reduce the distance between the water jets.

Choosing a shower

Luxury hydrotherapy showers offer a huge range of features, including multi-jet systems that target different areas of the body, as well as overhead waterfall and handheld options. If you have issues with pain or restricted mobility, you may prefer a shower with a seat that provides support and comfort. 

Other key features to look out for include a digital control panel, steam outlet, LED lighting and a sound system. Also ensure that the shower has a sturdy leak-proof tray and space-saving sliding doors made from toughened safety glass.

Choosing a bath

When choosing a hydrotherapy bath, examine the jets to check that they are set flush with the surface of the bathtub, because if they protrude even slightly they will cause discomfort when you are reclining in the bath. 

The jets can be controlled electronically or manually. Most people prefer the convenience of electronic control systems via a touchpad. Other key features to consider is a hot air booster to maintain a comfortable temperature while you are bathing. Some systems also have power boosters so that you have greater control over the pressure of the jets.
