Perhaps owning a spa pool was always a dream—a luxurious escape to relax your body and mind. But having a spa pool is not a luxury anymore.Choosing the right spa pool for your needs might sound challenging, but our team at Jet Spas is here to help with our range of spa pools in NZ, including a range of hydrotheraphy spa pools in Auckland and throughout New Zealand.

The Best Spa Pool Choice For You: Hydrotherapy  Spa Pools

Experts suggest that, among the various choices available, Hydrotherapy spa pools are the best option for seniors. These pools offer not only a refreshing dip but also, through their design, the main objective of providing therapeutic benefits. Take a look at our Hydrotherapy range of spa pools

Benefits of hydrotherapy spa pools:

Owning a hydrotherapy spa pool is an investment in your well-being.  Here are some of the amazing benefits you can expect:

  • Pain Relief: Hydrotherapy is known for relieving pain. Warm water relaxes muscles, while targeted jets reduce aches caused by conditions like arthritis or everyday wear and tear.
  • Enhanced Circulation: Warm water and targeted jets combine to improve circulation throughout your body, promoting overall well-being and vitality.
  • Improved Sleep: If you’re having trouble sleeping, hydrotherapy sessions might be able to help. The warm water and gentle massage can help you fall asleep quicker and have a better quality of sleep. This means you’ll wake up feeling more rested and refreshed.
  • Mental Relaxation: Hydrotherapy can help with relaxation and stress reduction. Soak in the warm water to let your worries fade away and unwind in a peaceful environment.

 Some key features of hydrotherapy spa pools:

  • Pulsating Waters: Unlike a standard spa pool, hydrotherapy models offer pulsating jets that create a massaging effect, promoting muscle relaxation and pain relief.
  • Targeted Jets: These jets are strategically positioned to focus on specific muscle groups, allowing for a customised massage experience. Don’t worry! You won’t feel any pain because of the pressures because jet pumps give you full control over who gets a massage and how much pressure is coming out.
  • Ergonomic Seating: Forget uncomfortable benches. Hydrotherapy spa pools boast ergonomically designed seats that cradle your body for maximum comfort during your hydrotherapy sessions. Usually, one lounger is slightly deeper than the other, meaning that you or your partner is not right out of the water when the other sits comfortably.
  • Water Temperature Control: Experts recommend that the ideal water temperature for seniors in spa pools is between 28 and 32 degrees Celsius. It is highly recommended that you take a warm water bath to effectively release stiffness from your muscles and provide a rejuvenating experience for your mind. But we all feel comfortable in different water temperatures, so Hydrotherapy spa pools will allow you to control the water temperature.

Exercises for the Seniors in Spa Pools

Regular exercise is essential for maintaining mobility and overall health, especially as we age. Like swimming pools, spa pools provide a useful environment for low-impact exercises that are gentle on the joints. Here are some exercises tailored for senior individuals:

  • Water Walking: Take advantage of the water’s buoyancy by walking laps in the spa pool. This low-impact exercise helps improve cardiovascular health and strengthens leg muscles.
  • Leg Lifts: While seated in the spa pool, perform leg lifts to strengthen the quadriceps and improve balance.
  • Arm Circles: Stand in waist-deep water and perform gentle arm circles to enhance shoulder flexibility and strengthen the upper body.
  • Standing Water Push-ups: Position your hands on the wall of the pool, facing one of its sides. Keep your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Lean towards the wall by bending your arms and then move away from it without locking your elbows.
  • Flutter Kicking:  Grasp onto the pool’s edge, extend your body flat in the water, flutter your legs in an up-and-down motion while maintaining a straight body position, and ensure your feet remain together.

Remember: Start slow and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your spa pool exercises as your fitness improves.

Safety First

Safety should always be a top priority, especially for senior individuals using spa pools. Here are some essential safety measures to consider:

  • Use of Stairs: Ensure that the spa pool is equipped with sturdy stairs with non-slip surfaces to facilitate safe entry and exit.
  • Invest in Handrails: Install handrails along the sides of the spa pool to provide support and stability for senior users. Handrails are usually sold separately, so it’s always a good idea to check the accessories section on any website.
  • Keep the lights on: Ensure that the area surrounding the spa pool is well-lit to minimise the risk of slips and falls, especially during evening use.
  • Keep your spa clean: Keep the spa pool well-maintained to prevent any potential hazards or malfunctions. Regular inspections and servicing by qualified professionals are essential.
  • Listen to your body: Consider what would work best for you. If you need shorter soak times (actually, it is recommended for seniors compared to younger adults), especially at higher temperatures, do that.  Finally, don’t forget to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after using a spa pool is essential to prevent dehydration.
