Hydro Features in Hydro Shower Cabins.

   Hydrotherapy, a term derived from the Greek words "hydro", meaning water and "therapeuo", representing healing, is a therapeutic technique that harnesses the physical properties of water to promote health and well-being. One of the most modern applications of hydrotherapy is those featured in hydro shower cabins. These cabins provide a spa-like experience within the comfort of one's home. The water features of these cabins are there to maximize the benefits of hydrotherapy on a daily use basis:

Overhead Monsoon Shower:  Also known as a rain shower, this feature mimics the sensation of a tropical downpour, enveloping the user in a cascade of water. The user can adjust the pressure and temperature of the water to stimulate blood circulation, relax tense muscles, and provide a soothing experience.

Hand Shower: The hand shower allows users to direct water to specific body areas for a more targeted approach. This option is particularly beneficial for addressing localized pain or tension.

Massage Back Jets: These jets are strategically positioned to target the back, providing a deep tissue massage effect. The pressure from the jets can help alleviate back pain, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation.

Understanding Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy, formerly known as hydropathy, is a branch of alternative medicine that involves water for pain relief and treatment. This therapeutic method uses water's physical properties, which include pressure and temperature, to stimulate blood circulation and treat symptoms of various diseases - the techniques employed in hydrotherapy range from water jets and underwater massages to mineral baths.

The Hydrotherapy Origins

The therapeutic use of water dates back to ancient civilizations and includes the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. Egyptian royalty indulged in baths infused with essential oils and flowers, while the Romans established communal public baths. The renowned physician Hippocrates even prescribed spring water baths for treating specific illnesses. Cultures like China and Japan also have a rich history of hydrotherapy, with Japan being mainly known for its hot springs.

Benefits and Precautions

While hydrotherapy offers numerous benefits, including alleviating back pain, treating arthritis, and even aiding sleep, it's essential to approach it with caution. Those with impaired temperature sensation should avoid it due to the risk of frostbite or scalding. It's also advisable for children, the elderly, heart patients, and pregnant individuals to consult a doctor before starting hydrotherapy.

Hydro Features in Steam Showers and Whirlpool Showers

Within our range of shower products, beyond the hydro shower cabins, this same hydrotherapy can also be found in our steam showers and whirlpool showers.

Steam Showers: These showers combine the benefits of steam and hydrotherapy. The warm steam helps open the pores, facilitating a deep cleanse, while the water jets provide a therapeutic massage. The combination promotes relaxation detoxification and can even alleviate respiratory issues.

Whirlpool Showers: These are the epitome of luxury and therapeutic benefits. Whirlpool showers come equipped with underwater jets that provide a massage-like sensation. The swirling water helps reduce muscle tension, improve blood circulation, and promote relaxation. Additionally, the air-spa feature introduces air bubbles into the water, providing a gentle massaging effect and enhancing the overall therapeutic experience.


Hydrotherapy, with its ancient roots and modern applications, offers many benefits. Whether it's the overhead monsoon shower in a hydro cabin, the steam in a steam shower, or the swirling water in a whirlpool, the therapeutic power of water remains unmatched. As technology advances and our understanding of hydrotherapy deepens, it's clear that the bond between water and well-being will continue to strengthen.
