Massage therapy enhances your sense of well-being, relaxes sore muscles, relieves spasms and so much more. At Haydel Chiropractic in MassageHouma, Dr. Patrick Haydel offers innovative aqua massage therapy with the XL-250 Turbo Pro machine. It's a hands-off, treatment-tailored and dry--yes, dry--massage therapy which utilizes the power of water.


Why get a massage?

In general, massage therapy, or manual manipulation of muscles and connective tissue, provides intense relaxation, relieves pain and spasms and increases blood flow to selected tissues. An adjunct to spinal manipulation and other chiropractic services at Haydel Chiropractic in Houma, massage therapy reduces also harmful inflammation, increases recovery after intense workouts and delivers essential oxygen to tight and knotted muscles.


Why get aqua massage therapy?

A wonderful alternative to hands-on massage, aqua massage therapy harnesses the power and soothing benefits of water and delivers them to the entire body without submerging the patient or even getting him or her wet!

Dr. Patrick Haydel uses the XL-250 Turbo Pro aqua massage machine to deliver everything from a vigorous and energizing total body massage to a soothing and relaxing massage to selected areas of the body. The machine resembles a tanning bed but allows the individual a free, open and clear view of the surrounding room.

A series of powerful jets deliver streams of water to the sides and bottom of the body through a plasticized barrier. You remain completely clothed during the 20-minute to half hour treatment, and you may even listen to relaxing music with headphones. After your massage, you simply put your shoes on and go back to your normal daily activities.

Aqua massage therapy takes about half the time of traditional hands-on techniques such as Swedish or trigger point massage. All types of massage, including aqua techniques, help relieve low back pain, anxiety, and stress. Patients say that they sleep better and have better range of motion in their major joints with a chiropractic treatment plan which includes aqua massage therapy.
