Dry Hydrotherapy - Hydro massage is an unattended modality that provides relief from pain by jets of warm water to massage the soft tissues of the body. The heat and massaging action of the water work together to help improve circulation, relieve muscle tension and stiffness, release trigger points, increase range of motion, release pressure on nerves, and promote general relaxation. The patient lies completely clothed on the surface of the table. Just under the surface is a mattress filled with heated water. A pump propels the water toward the patient through three patented hydro-jets. The pressure of the water against the patient’s body provides very effective deep tissue massage. "Sidmar.com"
