*Dry hydrotherapy* (*dry* water massage) is a form of therapy that combines the healing powers of water, heat and massage in a single system without the inconvenience of getting wet.
Dry hydrotherapy (also known as hydromassage, aquamassage, water massage) is a self-contained massage device consisting of a table or chair. The individual sits or lies back completely clothed on top of a water-proof barrier that contains interior jets, which rotate and pulsate while releasing streams of pressurized heated water along the body. The pressure of the water against the body provides the massage. It is intended to relieve pain and muscle tension, increase blood circulation, increase range of motion (ROM), and decrease the need for other therapies by combining the effects of hydrotherapy, massage therapy, acupressure, thermotherapy, soft tissue manipulation, and trigger point therapy.
