||The therapeutic benefit of the underwater pressure massage comes
from the relaxing effect of warm water, applied at variable force
on the muscles, particularly on deep-lying muscle layers, subcutaneous
tissues, skin and the abdominal organs (intestines).
In the underwater pressure massage the client lies relaxed in a
large tub of warm water. A stream of water under pressure (ranging
from 0.5 to a maximum of 7.0 bar absolute pressure units) is applied
by means of a hose that has interchangeable nozzles.
The water needed for the massage is drawn from the tub and returned
under pressure through the hose. The high-pressure stream
of water is created by an internal pump.
The underwater massage is indicated for the following:
- Chronic Joint Rheumatism
- Muscular Rheumatism
