Do you suffer from lymphedema?
Maybe you have joint, muscle or nerve problems.
Traditional massage therapy is great, but coupled with hydrotherapy, you can experience even better results.
You probably know that hydrotherapy uses water (hot or cold) to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being, but…
Special hydrotherapy tubs are used in clinics around the world to aid in healing.
Hydrotherapy tubs are used to treat many illnesses and conditions. According to WebMD it can help with conditions such as:
Some add hydrotherapy to their normal massage therapy routine simply for relaxation and to maintain their health. Others utilize hydrotherapy to reduce or relieve sudden or long-lasting pain.
Relax in Style is proud to announce the addition of our very own Hydrotone L therapy tub! We are the only massage therapy center in the Springfield area offering the service. We offer hydrotherapy services because we want to help people on a deeper, more meaningful level. It enables us to help a wider variety of clients who may suffer from swelling in their legs, swelling and pain issues from cancer, sports injuries, or simply pain experienced in everyday living. The most important benefit with the therapy tub is the lymphatic drainage programs which helps your entire body with circulation and swelling reduction.
Some people are so tight and tense when they come in. By starting their session with hydrotherapy, it has helped them to become more relaxed before they go into the next room for their massage. For them, it’s an easier transition and they get a lot more out of their session because pain is reduced quicker.
After a heavy weight lifting day book your tub appointment so you can come in to soak in cool water and allow the jets to massage those muscles, to relieve soreness and promote healing. After you have relaxed a bit let us use the pressure wand to target specific muscles. Follow it up with 30 minutes of hands on massage and add some heat. Your muscles will reward you for taking such good care of them.

During your initial consultation, we will review and assess your needs and goals for the treatment. We will cater a plan just for you to combine the best treatments for maximum results. Combining hydrotherapy along with massage therapy is a way to combine the benefits of both healing methods.
For your hydrotherapy appointment, the water is drawn specifically for your needs. The heater within the tub maintains consistent temperature throughout your treatment. Our tub features hydro jet as well as air jet systems for a total of 38 jets. Those jets are broken into four zones so we can turn on all of them or target specific areas.
Nozzles can be turned off and on to focus on problem areas. The most significant difference with the hydrotherapy tub is that is has a wand allowing for more pinpointed relief. The pressure flowing through the jets is regulated for maximum comfort.
For many hydrotherapy appointments, you’ll be in the tub for 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of massage. The length of time in the tub can be adjusted to fit your relaxation and pain relief goals.
Each body is different. Since we are all individuals we may react differently to the intensity and the length of time of the treatment. You may start out at 20 minutes and then decide you would like to get out. There is a STOP button. We are right there to provide assistance.
Hydrotherapy is generally safe. If you are at all concerned with the therapy treatment plan, we encourage you to discuss and clear it with your physician or physical therapist.
