Pain Relief


Medical Spas™ was created to offer medical benefits to you. Unlike other spas, Medical Spas™ innovated further to incorporate therapies directed to relieve aches and pains in your body. Along with the extra therapies provided by Medical Spas™, the Arthritis Foundation states that the soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving pain and stiffness.*

The American Physical Therapy Association recommends that sufferers learn natural strategies for preventing and relieving chronic pain.* Hydrotherapy in a Medical Spas™ encourages the body to use its own responses to handle pain. There are also added component to these therapies – massage. The Medical Massage Jet™ nozzles release warm water and air, massaging your body and helping you relax tight muscles. They have been perfectly positioned and engineered to target areas of your body that experience the most discomfort. Additionally, Medical Spas™ include Medical Massage Jet™ for your neck, shoulders and even your buttocks.

Medical Spas™ not only helps the pain in our bodies but also pain associated with headaches and migraines. Immersing yourself in a Medical Spa™ is the first and most important step to releasing the tension that triggers your migraine. Without a Medical Spa™, migraine headaches typically last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours and can make you extremely sensitive to light, noise, and the world around you, which is never a pleasant experience.*

Medical Spas™ are more than just spas. They were designed to help heal your body. Because of all the doctors that came together to help make Medical Spas™ possible, and the over 100+ years of combined experience they all provided, there are lots of medical benefits you will receive by using it daily.

Because Medical Spas™ are based purely on documented studies; we have included the appropriate studies below with links for further research and verification.

Migraine Headaches - Journal of Neurosciences in Rural Practice

Clinical Study

Research:

Migraine is associated with autonomic symptoms. The growing body of literature suggests that the dysfunctional autonomic nervous system might play a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of migraine. Thermal therapies have been hypothesized to modulate these changes and alleviate pain. However, data regarding the efficacy of hydrotherapy in migraine remain scant. We evaluated the effect of add on hydrotherapy procedure in migraine patients.

Results:

There was a significant decrease in headache impact score, frequency, and intensity of headaches following treatment and most evident in the hydrotherapy group. Our study shows that hydrotherapy enhanced the vagal tone in addition to reducing the frequency and intensity of headaches in migraine patients.
