Hydromassage tub

hydromassage of a child with cerebral palsy

When a person is immersed in water, his body is in a state of approaching weightlessness and it relaxes. The combination of relaxation and hydromassage helps to achieve a significant therapeutic effect.

In our center there is an office of hydromassage procedures where the child can receive a course of high pressure underwater massagea, a shower massage, a hydromassage and a hydroaeromassage (in another it is called also a “pearl bath” & rdquo).

Underwater high-pressure massage is a massage with the help of an isolated water jet, which is fed through a hose with a special nozzle. This type of massage allows you to deeply and painlessly affect certain muscle groups, providing mechanical and thermal effects and thus reducing the tone of spastic muscles. Massage with a shower funnel has a similar effect.

In general, such water treatments increase microcirculation and blood flow to the periphery, which activates redox reactions in the body, improves metabolism, the child relaxes, improves his sleep, appetite and general condition.

Contraindications are:

  • convulsions;
  • infectious skin diseases;
  • hypersensitivity to water treatments.
