How Does Hydrotherapy Work?
The healing properties of hydrotherapy are based on its mechanical and/or thermal effects. It makes use of the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli, to the protracted application of heat, to the pressure exerted by the water, and to the sensation of the water itself. Nerves carry what is felt by the skin deeper into the body, where it is then vital in stimulating the immune system, influencing the production of stress hormones, improving circulation and digestion, encouraging the flow of blood, and lessening the body’s sensitivity to pain.
Generally speaking, heat is used to quiet and soothe the body, and to slow down the activity of internal organs. Cold is used to stimulate and invigorate, increasing internal activity within the body. If you are experiencing tense muscles or anxiety, heat is recommended in the shower or bath. For feeling tired and stressed out, it is recommended to take a warm shower or bath followed by a short cold shower to help stimulate the body and mind.
When submerged in a body of water such as a bath or a pool, there is a kind of weightlessness, as the water relieves your body of much of the effects of gravity. Water also has a hydrostatic effect and has a massage-like feeling as the water gently kneads your body. Water, when it is moving, stimulates the touch receptors on the skin, increasing blood circulation and releasing tight muscles.
We humans have enjoyed soaking in warm water for hundreds of years, but we now have a growing number of studies to support the health benefits that we’ve essentially known all along. Here at Blue Ridge Tubs of Asheville we have a large selection of Walk-in tubs just waiting for you to enjoy and reward yourself.
A recent study performed at the Mayo Clinic revealed that soaking in hot water gives many of the same benefits as exercising, without straining the heart. The heart rate is increased while the blood pressure is lowered. The heart speeds up to send warm blood to raise body temperature. This warm blood causes the blood vessels to dilate, which lowers blood pressure by decreasing resistance to blood flow.
Blue Ridge Tubs came out and gave me a very reasonable and professional estimate that we were very content with and set told us how long the install would take. We agreed on a price and set a date they arrived on time and did a fabulous job. I would recommend them very highly. Jim (Waynesville)
I cannot say enough about how good a job these people did, they were on time very professional and courteous. Peter and I was having a Problem getting in to my bathtub so I had to make do with sink bathing when a friend referred Blue Ridge Tubs to me and that changed my life. They put in a wonderfully new walk in tub and the hydrotherapy as worked wonders for my arthritis. A huge thank you Ann.
As a war veteran that has multiple disabilities I could no longer get in the tub so I had a helper bathing me, I was told about how Blue Ridge Tubs might be able to put in a Walk in Tub so I could bathe on my own and they did. These guys worked wonders in a small space and got me my new tub and made it affordable. Now I have my dignity and privacy back. Bless you for that Larry,
I hired Blue Ridge Tubs to put in a new Roll in shower to replace my old tub and they did a great job.The installer was friendly and courteous and I am very happy. Thank you Joyce
I am 83 years old and was having trouble getting in to my bathtub, then my care provider ( Care Path ) told me to call Blue Ridge Tubs to have a Walk in tub put in. One of their patients had one and loved it.I met with them and agreed a price which was affordable and set the date.The work was done in the time I was told and I was completely satisfied with my new tub. In this age of being gauged by companies it was a pleasure dealing with Blue Ridge Tubs and I highly recommend them for a professional job.Many thanks you made this old lady happy !! Beatrice
As a young professional ( mid 30's ) living here in the Asheville area and very much into mountain biking and hiking, I was looking for something to soak in after a hard day at work or a workout. I looked into an outside "Jacuzzi" ( hot tub ) but I was thinking maybe something inside. I ran into an ad from Blue Ridge Tubs and gave them a call. Talked with them ... and set an appointment and decided to go with a walk-in tub from Blue Ridge Tubs. Long story short, I just love this walk-in bath tub with the hydrotherapy. It's not just for older people . Works like a charm.. Thanks Mike ! Matt D - Biltmore Forest- Asheville
