MASSAGE TUB

What is hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of disease. The use of water for therapy has been around for hundreds of years, as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans, and forms an integral part in many traditional medicine systems. Learn why it is so beneficial for your health.

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.

Conditions Helped by Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is used to treat many illnesses and conditions including:

  • acne
  • arthritis
  • colds
  • depression
  • headaches
  • stomach problems
  • joint, muscle, and nerve problems
  • sleep disorders
  • stress

It is also commonly used for relaxation and to maintain a person’s state of health. Hydrotherapy is also excellent for reducing or relieving sudden or long-lasting pain.

Benefits of Hydrotherapy

The benefits of hydrotherapy include:

  • dramatically increasing the elimination of waste, thus assisting detoxification
  • loosening tense, tight muscles and encouraging relaxation
  • increasing the metabolic rate and digestion activity
  • hydrating the cells, improving skin and muscle tone
  • boosting the immune system, allowing it to function more efficiently
  • improving the function of the internal organs by stimulating their blood supply

Contraindications for Hydrotherapy

  • Cold baths should not be used for young children or the elderly. Sauna baths should be avoided by people that suffer from heart conditions.

What is acrylic & how is it strong?

Chemical name is PMMA (Poly Methyl Methacrylate). We are using DUPONT brand acrylic sheets for its quality, color and finish. Once the acrylic sheet is moulded in the desired shape by a process known as Thermoforming, 3 layers of fibre reinforcement is applied to give sturdiness to the sheet. The former acrylic tub after reinforcement is placed onto a 304 grade Stainless Steel skeletal structure for additional support.

What are the benefits of using acrylic for bath tubs?

The skin is a highly specialized sensory organ that acts as a barrier of protection against the external environment. For this reason, people can be quite particular about what they expose their skin to. In the bathroom, the warm, smooth, pore-free surface of acrylic tubs offers a distinctive advantage over other materials. Anyone sitting on the edge of or reclining in the tub while it fills with water will find the material pleasant to the touch. Acrylic feels comfortable against the skin’s surface, creating a sensation that immediately puts the user at ease.

The smooth seamlessness of acrylic’s surface presents another advantage when it comes to cleaning. Because acrylic cannot be penetrated by dirt particles, tubs can simply be cleaned with a soft cloth and water. Stronger deposits can be removed using warm water and a liquid cleaning agent. 

Acrylic is also distinguishable by another unique characteristic. With its natural shimmering appearance, it is an adaptable material that ensures design continuity in the bathroom. A perfect complement to its ceramic counterparts and an elegant partner to bath paneling, acrylic creates an exceptional sense of balance in the overall design of the room. 

Acrylic is also color proportionate and UV-stable, so users can rest assured that their tub will retain its appearance throughout its lifespan.

What is Chromotherapy?

Chromotherapy, sometimes called color therapycolorology or cromatherapy, is a alternative medicine method. Chromotherapists claim to be able to use light in the form of color to balance "energy" lacking from a person's body, whether it be on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels.

What is Ozone?

  •  
    • Reduces need for high chemical doses
    • Helps destroy bacteria, viruses, algae, yeasts
    • Oxidizes other contaminants
    • Reduces odor and chloramines
    • Prolongs equipment life
    • Reduces maintenance time & cost
    • Ozone purifies naturally

    Ozone is a much stronger oxidizer of contaminates than plain oxygen because the extra oxygen atom is loosely bound. It breaks loose when it comes in contact with organic material or other contaminants, oxidizing and thereby destroying them in the process.

What are the benefits of ozone?

What are the benefits of ozone?

Will ozone affect my pH?

Ozone is pH neutral. It will not adversely affect the pH of your massage tub.

Will the chrome plating remove from the parts?

Chrome plating is given on the jets outer cup & all the handles/knobs. Normally the plating will not be removed easily. To extend the life of the plating it is advised to use soft cloth which will not make scratch on the plating. Also, it is advised to not use strong detergent liquids while cleaning the plated parts.

What is a Whirlpool pump?

Whirlpool pump is the type of pump used in massage bath tubs. The working principle of this pump is that it takes the water present inside the tub and pushes it with pressure through the jets, causing a whirlpool, hence the name whirlpool pump.

Since the tub has a built-in pump is it required to install an external pressure booster pump?

As discussed above the function of the Whirlpool pump is to take in the water present inside the tub and release it with pressure through the jets. The pump does not provide pressure to the spout or hand shower. If we are to use the spout for filling the tub, it will consume more time if the line pressure is less than 3 bars. Also, the flow through the hand shower will be below average. Hence, it is recommended to provide a suitable pressure booster pump if installing a massage tub.

What is a Constant Temperature heater?

A Constant Temperature Heater is a type of heater which comes built-in our high end massage tubs. Usually when we are filling a tub with hot water and starting the whirlpool pump, the temperature of the water rapidly cools down. To prevent this, after we fill the tub with the desired temperature water, we can set the heater such that the temperature is maintained inside the tub when using the whirlpool pump.

Do I need to install a separate heater since my tub has a built-in heater?

We would recommend first checking the quality of the water coming at your site, for the contents and pH scale. In chemistry, pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Pure water has a pH very close to 7.

Suitable softeners or water treatment will ensure prolonged life of the chrome coating of all the parts and also reduce any discoloration of the acrylic material.

If there are any large sediments present in the water the chances for blockages are more which is removed by adequate filtration systems. 

Do I require installing water filter system?

We would recommend first checking the quality of the water coming at your site, for the contents and pH scale. In chemistry, pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Pure water has a pH very close to 7. Suitable softeners or water treatment will ensure prolonged life of the chrome coating of all the parts and also reduce any discoloration of the acrylic material. If there are any large sediments present in the water the chances for blockages are more which is removed by adequate filtration systems.

What is the protection provided against electrocution?

The unit has a built-in earth leakage protector, which trips off when it senses any irregularities in the electrical connection. Even so, we highly recommend giving a 20 Amp. ELCB breaker separate for the unit, and the wiring for the earth connection to be proper.

What is Chromotherapy?

Chromotherapy, sometimes called color therapy, colorology or cromatherapy, is a alternative medicine method. Chromotherapists claim to be able to use light in the form of color to balance "energy" lacking from a person's body, whether it be on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels.

Will the Stainless Steel rust?

Yes. Stainless steel is actually a form of steel in which chromium is added to it. The chromium forms a thin protective barrier on top of the iron which inhibits the entry of oxygen to react with the iron present in Stainless Steel. This layer can easily be removed if scratch is made using any sharp object, such as steel wool. Even if there is no scratch, if high contents of chlorine, bromine content present in the water and strong chemicals can easily penetrate the chromium layer and expose the iron to the atmosphere causing it to rust.

What is the purpose of thermostatic mixer?

The main purpose of a thermostatic mixer is to prevent scalding by accident. The principle behind it is that if hot water is only present and cold water is not prevent in the line, the whole system will prevent the hot water form coming when we switch on the system and will again start working once cold water is also present in the line.

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a very active form of oxygen. It is formed when oxygen is exposed to a high-energy field causing some oxygen molecules (O2) to break down to oxygen atoms (O). The oxygen atoms (O) then react with the oxygen molecules (O2) to form ozone (O3). Notice that this is a reversible reaction meaning that ozone can decompose back to oxygen.

What are the benefits of ozone?

 
  • Reduces need for high chemical doses
  • Helps destroy bacteria, viruses, algae, yeasts
  • Oxidizes other contaminants
  • Reduces odor and chloramines
  • Prolongs equipment life
