Gently floating on water can be one of the most relaxing things you can do for your mind and body. Unfortunately, access to a pool or a body of aqua massagewater isn't always available in Houma, LA, especially during colder weather. At Haydel Chiropractic, we offer aqua massage therapy as an effective, comfortable, and convenient alternative. You'll learn here how Dr. Patrick Haydel and his staff can help you achieve wellness throughout your body and mind with aqua massage therapy!

What is aqua massage therapy?

An aqua massage uses the gentle and relaxing power of heated, flowing water to give you a full body massage without needing to change out of your clothes. The massager we use at Haydel Chiropractic in Houma looks similar to a tanning bed, although it's much healthier for your body than ultraviolet rays! There is a thin but sealed barrier between you and the water, so you won't get wet, but you'll still feel the pulsations and pressure of over 30 jets that are carefully calibrated to give you a relaxing massage therapy session. You can even pause the cycle of jets to concentrate on a particular area. A typical aqua massage session lasts about a half-hour.

How can aqua massage therapy help me?

It's understandable why you’ll feel great during your aqua massage session at your Houma chiropractor’s office, but the benefits go far beyond the half hour you’ll spend at Haydel Chiropractic. For many of our patients, aqua massage therapy has shown to reduce stress, leading to better sleep and lower blood pressure. The targeted pressure from the water is also great for your muscles and circulation, which carries over into your everyday life and health.
