Operating principle and indications
The hydromassage bathtub is a plastic container with high sides and rubberized legs. At the bottom there are several mechanical containers, under which there are motors. They operate on electricity and transmit vibrations that create water jets of different directions and power.
Depending on the operation of the device, small bubbles or small vortices appear. They act on the skin surface and massage it. Some models also have a heating element and sensors that maintain the temperature. Many devices have special rollers that massage the feet even more effectively.
The procedure is carried out both in an aquatic environment and with the addition of sea salt, herbal decoctions and other agents. Dry massage with or without heating is also possible.
Thanks to such a wide functionality, the bath provides great benefits not only to the feet, but also to the entire body:
- blood flow improves;
- due to the diuretic effect, excess substances are removed;
- swelling decreases;
- foot sweating decreases;
- hydromassage is an effective means of preventing varicose veins;
- layers of old skin are removed, making the skin look more attractive.
In general, the procedures are very useful, they relieve fatigue, swelling, and have both medical and cosmetic value. Moreover, it is worth remembering that a hydromassage foot bath also has contraindications. In most cases, it really brings benefits, although in some situations it can cause harm, as discussed below.
Before purchasing and using a device, it is useful to familiarize yourself with the restrictions on its use:
- One of the common restrictions is associated with various lesions of the skin of the feet and legs. We are talking not only about fungi, but also about ulcers, allergic reactions, and tumors. In most cases, you can get rid of them with medical ointments and cosmetics, after which you can begin the procedure.

- Pour water at regular temperature or warm (within 45 degrees, you cannot pour boiling water).
- If the device is equipped with a temperature sensor, it will heat up to the desired level and give a light signal.
