Another Way to Unwind
We get it, you’ve got a busy schedule. Whether you’re running around for your family, checking goals off at work and balancing healthy eating all the while trying to stay on top of normal life, the last thing you can add into your calendar is time for yourself. Especially if that time consists of a massage.
Think back to your first time sitting in a massage chair or laying on the massage bed. You probably never wanted it to end. The relief you received—whether for a short time or a full hour—was unlike anything you’d experienced before. You likely felt more energized because of blood flow, less stressed and a little less in pain.
While you want to go back and continue to get more massages, it might not be the most convenient. And for those of you who don’t like massages because you haven’t met the massage therapist, we understand, and we have a solution. HydroMassage® lounge chairs.
HydroMassage® is similar to traditional massage but like the name suggests, it uses both water and massage techniques on the body to alleviate tense or tight areas. Similar to a massage chair, the HydroMassage® lounge chairs give you a powerful massage without getting wet. Think massage chair with Jacuzzi jets. You can sit fully clothed and let the HydroMassage® help you recover after a tough workout or heal from a minor injury. Or, our favorite, lounge peacefully to get away from the day to day grind.
HydroMassage® uses waves of heated water to target affected areas or massage the whole body. This natural remedy provides various benefits to your overall wellness.
- Relieves minor aches and pains temporarily
- Decrease stress and anxiety levels
- Experience deep relaxation
- Circulation increases where massaged
- Relieves soreness, stiffness and tension
HydroMassage® is available to anyone who wants a quick massage. Typically they are used post-workout in your cool down to help your body recover. However, you can utilize the HydroMassage® lounge chair before or in between workouts as well. You have the ability to target the water massage to a specific area, alter the intensity of the water and adjust the speed of the water as it travels up and down the body.
Four HydroMassage® lounge chairs are available at the Clark County Family YMCA. For only $10 a month, Y members can use the chairs for 10 minutes every day and experience all the benefits the HydroMassage chairs bring. Speak to someone at our Membership Desk to learn more and get this valuable addition.
Come work out, drop your kids off at basketball or Y Time and get a daily massage without taking up another spot on your calendar.
If you don’t like to be touched or are unfamiliar with massages, HydroMassage® is a great first step towards living a healthier life. We recommend speaking to your doctor if you have any concerns about using a HydroMassage® lounge chair.
