The Surprising Health Benefits of Hydrotherapy & Hot Tubs

In a world where dubious health claims are a dime a dozen, there’s one proven health strategy that too often gets overlooked: hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is defined simply as the use of water to treat disease, but these days it usually refers to baths or water immersion techniques.

According to a review by the National Institutes of Health that looked at numerous studies on the effects of hydrotherapy, it was “widely used to improve immunity and for the management of pain, CHF, MI, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, asthma, PD, AS, RA, OAK, FMS, anorectal disorders, fatigue, anxiety, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, hyperthermia, labor, etc.” The review’s conclusion also notes that the positive effects of hydrotherapy are, “scientifically evidence based.” This is nothing to take lightly in an era of Internet misinformation and snake-oil salesmen.

Not sure if hydrotherapy might be right for you? A visit to a doctor or physical therapist is probably a good first step, but if you’d like more information in the meantime, keep on reading. Continue reading

Microsilk Hot Tub Accessories: Aging & Beauty Treatment

A woman relaxing in a Marquis hot tub with Microsilk.
If you’re like most people, you spend a lot of time and effort taking care of your skin. Sunscreens, lotions, creams, and expensive spa treatments are all more popular than ever thanks to their purported anti-aging and moisturizing properties. Unfortunately, whether or not they work is still open to debate.

If you’re looking for an effective alternative to these anti-aging and skin-softening creams, consider a Marquis® hot tub with a MicroSilk® spa upgrade.

MicroSilk® is an advanced, unique hydrotherapy system that turns your home hot tub into a hydrotherapy spa. The MicroSilk® system oxygenates your hot tub’s water 70% more than normal tap water, using microbubbles small enough to enter your skin’s pores. This carries pure oxygen – a necessary building block of life and a metabolic booster – beneath the skin’s surface, exfoliating, improving hydration, increasing collagen production, and removing toxins in the process.

While normal hot tub bubbles float to the top of the water’s surface and release their heat into the air, MicroSilk® bubbles stay suspended and burst in the water itself. This creates a more consistent water temperature and enhances the hot tub’s sauna effect. The results? Improved circulation, increase opening of the pores, and even cardiovascular benefits.

MicroSilk® baths also cause microscopic anions to be released into the air from dissolving microbubbles. In high concentrations like those released by MicroSilk® microbubbles, anions have therapeutic effects caused by increased serotonin levels in the brain.

How does MicroSilk® work? The MicroSilk® process is created by a water jet system which superficially resembles that of any hot tub. The difference is that the specially-designed MicroSilk® pump takes in ambient air and dissolves it at elevated pressures into the water, creating its unique microbubbles. MicroSilk® jets produce microbubbles at such a high concentration that they form a cloud which surrounds the entire body, removing impurities and hydrating from head to toe.

In a nutshell, MicroSilk® hydrotherapy is a relaxing, non-invasive anti-aging and general skin health treatment that enhances metabolism and cell growth, eases wrinkles and fine lines, increases hydration, cleanses the pores, and more. If you want a way to truly take care of your skin without taking chances on over-the-counter creams or breaking the bank at an expensive day spa, MicroSilk® hydrotherapy is what you’ve been looking for.
