Water massage beds and lounges have changed a lot over the years, but the same basic principle
applies today as much as it did 27+ 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 and lounges 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.

And with more growth came newer and different types of water massage beds
and chairs…

However, until the early to mid-2000s, the water massage experience had been limited to
just that…a “water massage”.

But that all changed once personal computers, smart phones, and ipods all became hugely
popular, and this technology also found its way into the controls of water massage beds and lounges.

This was another big milestone for water massage beds. The Touchscreen was born.

Now, not only did the treatment feel good, the Touchscreen added a whole new
experience to water massage.

If users didn’t want to simply close their eyes and relax,
they could listen to music, watch movies, play games, or
even surf the internet during their massage.

Not surprisingly, this development also led to new growth
and more markets. But, oddly enough, it wasn’t until the
economic downturn of the late 2000s that the demand
for water massage beds ticked up again.

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.
