How To: Hot Tub Circuit Therapy
CalderaSpas® has developed a holistic approach to relaxation, rejuvenation and renewal with their Hot Tub Circuit Therapy System.
Each seat or position in a Caldera Spas hot tub is intended to provide a deep massage to a different muscle group. As you move from seat to seat, jets focus on those muscle groups one at a time, including your neck and shoulders, the large muscles of your back, lower back, hamstrings, calves and feet.
In this article, we look at hot tub circuit therapy and how to make it work for you.
The seats and jets have been carefully and strategically designed into a Caldera spa with a whole-body, holistic approach. Each seat or position in the spa is intended to work a different muscle group, providing a deep massage where you need it most.
It’s the same focused, thorough circuit-training approach that certified personal trainers use to make sure you get a full body workout by activating all major muscles for a balanced fitness routine.
CalderaSpas’ Hot Tub Circuit Therapy® works those same areas, focusing on one muscle group at a time.
You can work on your neck and shoulders, the large muscles of your back, lower back, hamstrings, calves and feet. By adjusting the intensity of the jets, you can also control the intensity of the jets—ranging from a deep, penetrating massage to a soothing, relaxing, light touch.
You’ll emerge transformed, head to toe with no tension remaining in your mind or body!
The Stages of Therapy
The arrangement of seats and jets in different models varies, so in your model you can determine which seats focus on the appropriate muscle groups. Typical moves and treatments include these stops.
- Start with a massage to your neck, shoulders and middle back in the lounge seat. Two rows of jets work on both sides of your spine, focusing on the latissimus dorsi, the rhomboid muscles and the trapezius. Some Caldera Spas models have jets for your hands and your calves. While you’re in the lounge seat, Sole Soothers® jets massage the bottoms of your feet.
- Selected models have independently controlled jets above the water level that massage downward, giving additional attention to tired neck muscles.
- Move and work on the lumbar area of your lower back. A pair of larger jets focuses on the low part of your back where tension accumulates and where many lower back problems develop.
- Move again and continue to focus on the back as a high-volume jet delivers a swirling effect.
- Move to one of the other areas where jets focus on the long muscles on the back of the thigh. While jets work on your hamstrings, others are at work on your knees, calves and feet.
