Hydrotherapy involves therapeutic treatments using the power and benefits of water.
Unlike thalassotherapy and balneotherapy, hydrotherapy does not use water to immerse the user, but to create a weightlessness phenomenon.
The use of hydrotherapy goes back to ancient times, probably to ancient Egypt. Later, the Romans used water for its health benefits and physical stamina, giving rise to the Roman thermal baths. Hydrotherapy not only treats symptoms already present, it also helps prevent the onset of certain pathologies.
What a hydrotherapy session in an ApesanteurSpa consists of
When the body floats, it no longer suffers the effects of gravity, and pain fades away. This was the starting point for our first ApesanteurSpa
Once you’ve settled into the reclining position, your body is no longer subject to the laws of attraction, and the force of the water jets reverberating around your body massages it. The combination of heated water, the venturi system and floatation therapy is the perfect alliance that allows the body to benefit from the action of this system.
How does an Apesanteur Spa work?
Nozzle location and precise hydraulic flow calculations for this equipment were developed by our engineering department. It’s the real highlight of this hydroactive spa. This movement provides a unique massage that works the entire body.
ApesanteurSpa is the only Spa on the market to offer a flat-bottomed massage that works on the pectoral and abdominal zones.
The spa is one of the main players in hydrotherapy, or water treatment, and is part of balneotherapy, or bathing. Balneotherapy is the name given to freshwater baths.
As opposed to thalassotherapy, which uses seawater.
Balneotherapy sessions in a spa help considerably to reduce pain:
By gently stimulating muscles with water jet massages and increasing blood flow with the heat of the water.
