Hydrotherapy - Benefits

1. Internal Warming

Probably the most important benefit of the SG-2000 Ultrasonic Hydrotherapy Home Spa is Internal Warming . We can compare this to what is achieved after a vigorous 30 minute exercise, when you feel heat being emitted from within the body. Internal warming increases our body temperature and boosts the immune system, metabolic rate and stimulates the creation of blood cells.

2. Blood Circulation (exercise effect)

A 15 minute soak with the SG-2000 Hydrotherapy Home Spa is equivalent to a 3-5km slow jog in energy exchange and 200-300 calories loss. Increased cellular activity also raises energy level, improves delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the organs, and the removal of toxins. Heavy metal toxins are removed in perspiration during the hydrospa.

Good blood circulation increases metabolism. An obvious sign of bad blood circulation is cold hands and feet. People experiencing this subsequently experience numbness at the ends of the limbs. More often that not, stroke patients feel the numbness before they suffer a stroke. Because of bad blood circulation, the hands and feet receive insufficient oxygen and the cells in these areas die. This is one of the reasons why diabetic patients see their limbs start to rot first. Blood also transports toxins. Bad blood circulation means that much toxins are deposited at the feet, where the  blood makes a 180 degree turn.

The importance of blood circulation is evident as doctors encourage regular exercise. However, the irony is that those who need the exercise are unable to do exercise for physical reasons. The SG-2000 Hydrotherapy Home Spa is suitable for people of all ages. For those who are unable to soak full body, Foot Hydrotherapy is also effective in stimulating blood circulation and cellular activity because of the numerous acupressure points on the soles of our feet.

3. Full Body Massage

All 320 main acupressure points of your body is massaged by millions of tiny air bubbles (46 litres of air/second) at a comfortable massage pressure of 1.5kg/cm². Traditional body massages often leave bruises on the body the next day because body tissue is compressed at a too great a pressure.

Lymphatic drainage is improved and internal organs are massaged as well. Chinese physicians compare the SG-2000 Hydrotherapy Home Spa to a hydro-acupuncture. Even acupressure points at our private areas which physicians and masseurs cannot reach, can be massaged using the SG-2000.

4. Deep Cleansing

Ultra Sound is used industrially for cleaning purposes. With 10,000-15,000 microtremors produced per second, ultrasound is able to vibrate the dirt and grime from the deep within the pores and achieve the effects of a body scrub.

5. Body contouring

46 litres or air bubbles are emitted at high speeds to massage the areas which you wish to tone. Simply relax at the right positions in the tub for a targeted body contouring and firming. SG-2000 ultrasonic hydrospa is also able to remove water retention in the body. With 200-300 calories lost in energy with a 15 minute session, combined with the right diet, slimming can be achieved.
