Frequently Asked Questions about AQUA MASSAGE….
What is Aqua Massage?
Aqua Massage is a quick, convenient way to get a full-body massage. An Aqua Massage machine looks similar to a tanning bed. All you need to do to prepare for the Aqua Massage is remove your shoes -no need to undress. You are FULLY CLOTHED the whole time. Wearing thin material will help enhance your session. Please removed all jewelry, items from pockets & belts. After your shoes are removed you will lay down on the bed of Aqua Massage machine. You will put on headphones to listen to relaxing music during your massage. The cover of the machine will come down over you. Then a bar with 36 warm water jets travels from your toes to your neck and back again and again for the duration of your massage. Feels very similar to hot tub jets but the benefit of not getting wet. Never had a massage before or haven’t had one for awhile? Massage is just like exercise, if you aren’t used to it and over do it the 1st time you may feel stiff of sore the next day.
Will I get wet?
No. There is a waterproof barrier between you and the water jets. It is a thin layer, so you will get all the benefits of the warm water pressure, but it does keep you from getting wet.
How much time do I need to set aside?
Only 15-20 minutes. A 15 minute Aqua Massage is roughly equivalent to a 45 minute massage with a massage therapist. You can call to make an appointment or BOOK ONLINE NOW!
Is an Aqua massage very relaxing?
Yes! There are 36 jets of warm water spraying at your body from many angles. The jets travel up and down your body multiple times during your massage, giving you a full body massage. The sound and motion of the water are also very soothing an relaxing. In addition, you can further relax by listening to relaxing music on headphones during your massage.
How often should I get an Aqua Massage?
Ideally, once to twice a week; this will keep your muscles, and your mind, relaxed. Your muscles will not have a chance to become too tight and sore between massages. You can even come in more often if you are working on a specific injury or problem area.
Can I adjust my Aqua Massage to my specific needs?
Yes! There are many different intensity levels that can be programmed into the machine. You can receive a light, gentle massage up to a very intense pressure for those of you who really have knots in your back or neck. The pressure can even be adjusted for different sections of your body. For example, if you really need to work on your lower back, but are a little more sensitive to so much pressure everywhere else, the machine can be programmed to suit your requirements. In addition, if you want to focus the massage on a certain spot, the machine can be paused any time you choose.
How does Aqua Massage compare to a massage from a massage therapist?
Both forms of massage provide many of the same benefits such as relaxation, easing muscle and joint pain and increasing circulation. Both forms of massage can provide anywhere from light pressure for a relaxing massage to very hard pulsating pressure for more of a deep tissue massage. It’s all about preference.
One of the main differences in the two types of massage is that Aqua Massage provides a full body massage and deep relaxation in only 15 minutes.
