Search for the Optimal Bathing Experience Combines Art and Science

(NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) -- The power of water to cleanse the body, calm the mind and uplift the spirit has been understood since the days of ancient Babylon, Greece and Rome. These days, however, consumers have more choices in hydrotherapy baths and broader access to the health benefits they provide than ever before.

“Hydrotherapy helps release toxins, relax muscles, enhance circulation and hydrate the skin, all as it promotes relaxation,” said Jennifer Jacuzzi-Peregrin, co-owner and top marketing executive with Jason International Inc., based in North Little Rock, Ark. “MicroSilk, the newest technology from Jason, even fades wrinkles, combats aging and lifts spirits.”

 “At a time when nearly 25 percent of American women aged 40 to 59 take stress-reducing medications every day, it’s important to consider the natural benefits of hydrotherapy as part of a daily bathing ritual,” she said. “These benefits are available to everyone who has a bath.”

Jacuzzi-Peregrin, a member of America’s first family of hydrotherapy, offered these suggestions to consumers as they consider which hydrotherapy bath is best for them:

Soaking Hydrotherapy – A long, deep soak in warm water stimulates the contact and temperature nerve receptors on the surface of the skin. These signals tell the brain to increase circulation, as it does when the body undertakes cardiovascular exercise. This ancient form of hydrotherapy releases stress and promotes relaxation.

AirMasseur® Hydrotherapy – AirMasseur® provides a gentle air-bubble massage as millions of warm air bubbles are released through strategically spaced air jets on the sidewall of the bath. AirMasseur® engages the light-touch nerve receptors just below the surface of the skin. The brain responds by boosting circulation and promoting relaxation.

Whirlpool Hydrotherapy – Whirlpool delivers streams of pressurized air and water through focused jets and transfers this energy deep into muscle tissues below the skin to the pressure nerve receptors. This energy relieves tight, stressed muscles, rejuvenates muscle tissues and improves flexibility in the joints.

New MicroSilk® Hydrotherapy – MicroSilk® Hydrotherapy is Jason International’s newest and uses its newly patented technology to generate tiny, oxygen-rich micro-sized bubbles that enter the pores of the skin. These microbubbles hydrate and moisturize the skin, fading the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaving skin silky to the touch. In addition, anions generated in the mist on the surface of the water stimulate serotonin levels and promote feelings of well-being similar to those experiences near waterfalls or ocean waves.

 “Hydrotherapy bathing systems are available in combination, MicroSilk®-AirMasseur®, MicroSilk®-Whirlpool and Air-Whirlpool, and may operate independently or together,” Jacuzzi- Peregrin said. “We manufacture the quietest baths on the market. And we provide optional chromatherapy, sound immersion and other luxury bathing systems technology for a truly unique hydrotherapy experience.”
