Underwater Massage

During an underwater massage, the massage therapist uses a hose with a powerful water jet directed at specific muscles or muscle groups to get a relaxing massage effect. The client is submersed in water up to their chest in a specialized, heated tub with hundreds of jets simultaneously applying pressure.

Therapeutic Bath

A Therapeutic Bath involves the use of hot water to relieve discomfort and promote physical well being. At Sutherland-Chan this is administered in a specialized tub consisting of over a hundred jets that can be targeted to certain areas.

Contrast Foot Bath

A Contrast Bath is a bath in which a part of the body is immersed alternately in hot and cold water for a therapeutic effect. The theory behind contrast bath therapy is that the warm water causes vasodilation of the blood flow in the limb or body. This is followed by cold water which causes vasoconstriction. The overall effect is to increase the local blood circulation. Additionally, the lymph vessels contract when exposed to cold, and relax in response to heat.
