History of Water Massage Beds

Water massage beds have changed a lot over the years, but the same basic principle applies today as much as it did 25+ years ago…

Giving you the relaxing benefits of a heated water massage, without the drawbacks or inconveniences of getting wet or undressed. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, water massage bed technology was much less advanced than it is today, but even the earliest beds felt surprisingly good.

One of the first groups to really embrace this concept was the chiropractic market, and many doctors began to use them as “pre-treatments” before giving adjustments. The chiropractor got the benefit of a more relaxed patient to work on, and the patient, well…they got treatment that actually made them want to come back to see the doctor again.

As the popularity of water massage beds slowly started to grow, it wasn’t long before
they were also being used in many other types of businesses. Physical therapists, rehab & pain clinics, day spas, tanning salons, and fitness centers all realized that this was a really affordable way to provide heated massage therapy to clients all day long. Even some smart dentists started using them to make the dreaded trip to their office slightly more pleasurable for their patients.

People who were worried about their job, their 401k, and their future were looking for an affordable way to help with stress. Public opinion about massage therapy began to shift, and instead of being a once a year indulgence on vacation, massage became a regular part of a healthy lifestyle.

The future of water massage beds will undoubtedly see more innovation, but the same basic principle will apply…
