The first hydromassage bath was invented in the early 20th century and looked like a container with warm water. A pump, which created a bubbling effect, was immersed into this bath.

This invention glorified the name of two Italians, the Jacuzzi brothers, whose name became a common word for denoting the hydromassage baths. By the mid twentieth century, it became apparent that such hydromassage baths had an excellent therapeutic effect. 1968 can be considered the year of the birth of the hydromassage bath industry and the beginning of their active use in medical practice. This was the year when the corporation "Jacuzzi" has introduced the first self-contained hydromassage bath to the world market.

Modern hydromassage baths are a technical system based on integration into the architecture of the nozzle bath. The capacity of such bath is deeper than that of the normal one. The water jets are directed at those areas of the body that need water massage most of all: legs, sides, sacrolumbar region. The water temperature and the strength of the jets are adjusted according to specific tasks.

Hydromassage has a massaging effect on the patient's body achieved by mixing air and water. When mixed together, these two elements create microbubbles, which are the massage factor. It is this effect that is used to accelerate the recovery of stroke patients - a combination of massage, thermotherapy and physiotherapy allows unification of three different procedures into a single one, which significantly increases the effectiveness of the therapy.

Hydromassage is an excellent stimulator of blood circulation, lymphatic circulation and metabolism. The procedure is very pleasant for the patient, which also significantly contributes to the recovery of the patient's health. It should also be noted that hydromassage significantly enhances the protective function of the skin from external influences and helps patient to fight against excess weight.

The effectiveness of hydromassage is determined by the quality of the mixture of water and air coming from special openings that are located close to those parts of the human body that need the greatest attention. In addition, the water jets coming out of the hole can be oriented in several different ways, which gives the doctor the opportunity to adjust the massage program to the individual needs of each patient.

The use of hydromassage baths should be necessarily agreed with the attending physician. This is due to the fact that there are a lot of contraindications to this procedure:

  • Any diseases that are in the acute stage of development;
  • Thrombosis;
  • Tuberculosis;
  • Skin infections and inflammations;
  • Hemorrhages;
  • Malignant and benign tumors;
  • 3rd degree hypertension;
  • Kidney stone disease;
  • 2-3 degree ischemia;
  • Myocardial infarction.

It should also be taken into account that the duration of the first session of hydromassage should not exceed 15 minutes. The subsequent sessions can last up to half an hour.
