1. A system for providing massaging pressure from a hydrotherapy jet comprising: a hydrotherapy vessel with a main body of water therein; a pressurized water source for moving water through said main body of water; a jet body with a hollow cavity through which water from said pressurized water source can pass therethrough along a longitudinal axis; a shuttle that rests within said hollow cavity along said longitudinal axis having a bottom side oriented toward said pressurized water source along said longitudinal axis and a top side oriented away from said pressurized water source along said longitudinal axis; a retaining member that keeps said shuttle movably attached to said jet body wherein when said pressurized water source is activated said shuttle is forced away from said pressurized water source and toward said main body of water; wherein said retaining member rests between said hollow cavity and said shuttle; and wherein said shuttle is of sufficient size and shape to be pulled back into said cavity through eddy forces acting upon said shuttle as it moves away from said pressurized water source thereby creating a reciprocating pulsation of said shuttle substantially along said longitudinal axis.
