After a long day of being up and about, there’s nothing we want to do more than lie back and put our feet up. But why stop there? Research has shown that soaking your feet in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes can do wonders not only for your well-being and mood, but also for alleviating chronic aches and pains – both in your feet and beyond.
Our feet are what carry us around all day after all. Yet, when it comes to caring for our bodies, they seem to be some of the last parts we consider.
Looking specifically at how we could create a hydrotherapeutic experience that effectively targets and helps alleviate pain points in this often over-looked part of our bodies, the team at Beachcomber embarked on delivering a massage configuration that would give users all the benefits of a professional foot massage, while enjoying the comforts of being at home.
Beachcomber Hot Tubs’ Reflex Foot Massage Jets
Providing intense jetting power to the feet, the Reflex Foot Massage (RFM) fixture fits into our spacious footwell. The upward jetting ensures that you are getting full relief to the one area you really may need it the most.
As Reflexology shows, your entire body is represented by and connected to your feet, meaning that caring for that part of your body can improve the health and wellness of all of your limbs and organs. While improved mood and increased relaxation are some of the benefits of our Reflex Foot Massage jets, listed below are a few more (you might not expect)!
Although we use our feet to get around all-day long, the muscles in them don’t actually get too much of a workout. This prevents adequate blood flow in your feet, causing pain and stiffness. Adding a 10-20 minute massage session to your daily hot tub soak will greatly improve blood circulation in your feet, as well as cut down on the foot pain experienced in everyday life.
Prevents Foot and Ankle Injuries
By improving the blood circulation in your foot, RFM jets help with the recovery and strengthening of the muscles in your feet. Adding foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching can further prevent injuries and speed up recovery time.
Lowers Blood Pressure
High blood pressure has become very common among people in our high stress society. A 10-minute foot massage session three times a week can significantly reduce the stress inflicted upon your body by the effects of high blood pressure and anxiety.
Helps Relieve Pain from Flat Feet
People with collapsed arches or flat feet often experience pain after physical activity because of inflammation and ligament damage. Regular deep massages from our RFM jets can help ease or even cure these pains.
