Hydrotherapy - Whirlpool

Enjoy the power of a deep, penetrating massage. This type of hydrotherapy comes from strategically placed jets that may be targeted to specific areas of the body. This system is ideal for a sports-related injury, using powerful jets that thoroughly massage muscles and help eliminate accumulated toxins. Operated by a whisper-quiet pump, MTI whirlpool systems use a mixture of air and water that can be adjusted from a gentle swirl to a more vigorous massage.

MTI's Whirlpool Bath is available on most Designer Drop-In tubs. See individual product specification sheets for details.

MTI whirlpool systems:

  • Expertly engineered for maximum therapeutic benefit.
  • Whisper quiet pump draws water in from the bathing well and reintroduces it through high-performance jets mounted on the inside tub walls.
  • The flow intensity is controlled by an air volume control dial that silently adjusts the amount of air mixed with the water to provide effects that range from a gentle, relaxing swirl to a more vigorous deep-tissue massage.
  • As more air is mixed with the water, the pressure of the jetted air / water mixture increases.
  • Strategically placed directionally-adjustable point-massage jets allow targeted water-jet massage to specific areas of the body.

With the advent of air baths, whirlpools had decreased in popularity, largely due to inaccurate and incomplete information. Some people are of the opinion that air baths are “cleaner”, or more sanitary, than whirlpools. The truth is that air baths and whirlpools can be either “clean” or problematic, and this depends upon how they are engineered and maintained. MTI excels at engineering hygienic, easy-to- maintain whirlpools and air baths. (See Whirlpool Bath Cleaning Systems)

Contrary to what some may believe, air baths and whirlpools are not interchangeable in the type of therapy they offer. Whirlpools provide a deep-tissue massage, and air baths a light full-body massage. Different hydrotherapies for different conditions and circumstances with different results. One cannot take the place of the other.
