Hydrojet massage is a form of underwater pressure treatment in which you lie in a special bath. With waterjet massage, special nozzles shoot a stream of warm water at varying pressures.
The advantage of waterjet massage is that these different pressures allow the treatment to reach different levels of the body from the skin to underlying muscle layers to the internal organs. Lying in the bath is relaxing in itself and the pressurised warm water, varying from .5 pressure units to a maximum of 7, feels very pleasant. Treatment generally lasts up to half an hour with time given for you to adjust to being in the water.

By increasing circulation, it brings more nutrients and oxygen to your skin. Many claim that regular treatment has made them feel and look younger. It can help with digestion by relaxing the muscles of your abdomen and intestines as well as ensuring your liver functions better.
