Move past your pain, and relax knowing that hydrotherapy is a trusted healing tool. Years of research supports hot tubs as a way to relieve pain in the body.

Enhance treatments such as:

  • Chiropractic
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Spinal Decompression

MAAX spas are medically designed for daily home treatment.

MAAX Spas are optimally engineered for jet size, pressure and positioning to allow for precise hydrotherapy to soothe aching muscles. It is like having a massage overtime you use your hot tub. Not longer do jets just pump water straight at your back, but rather pulse, spin and apply pressure to areas that need it most.

Pain is caused by overloaded pain receptors called nociceptors. Events like trauma, muscle fatigue, and poor posture can trigger these nociceptors on our nerve endings, telling our brain to ‘feel’ pain .

When areas of our body become overloaded with pain, whether through mechanical, thermal or chemical triggers, they begin to feel tight and sore and our bodies actually refer our ‘pain’ to surrounding areas called ‘trigger points’.

A trigger point exists when over stimulated muscle fibers called sarcomeres are prevented from releasing from their ‘locked’ state. Normally sarcomeres act like tiny pumps, contracting and relaxing to circulate blood through the muscle and surrounding tissue. When sarcomeres are ‘locked’ blood flow essentially stops and the lack of oxygen irritates the trigger point. The trigger point responds to the lack of oxygen by sending out pain signals to the brain.

This is how MAAX Spas zone therapy design works – by targeting these ‘trigger points’
