Underwater Massage

The concept of underwater massage is based on the following five factors:
  1. hydrostatic pressure
  2. temperature
  3. buoyancy
  4. mechanical stimulation
  5. psychological factors
  • relieves hypertonic muscles
  • stimulates tissue metabolism and trophism
  • relaxes the autonomic nervous system / psychological state
  • relieves pain
  • promotes absorption in body tissue
  • loosens tissue adhesion and breaks down scar tissue

In rehabilitation programmes, massage is equally as important as physiotherapy, and cannot be simply substituted by another form of therapy. Massage and physiotherapy belong together in an optimal programme of treatment.
