Hot Tubs for Hydrotherapy
If you've ever experience chronic pain or arthritis or any number of ailments, you may not know that one of the best healing properties available to us today, is the ability to sit in warm water, up to our neck for 15-20 minutes a day.
It's amazing the number of medical benefits you can get from one hot tub; by sitting in a hot tub with air and water blowing jets you can relieve tension from almost every part of your body.
Being able to recline in a molded seat that is equipped with jets that are focused on your sore spots, whether it's the back of your neck, or your lower back or calves, you will be able to find relief with a hot tub. The very nature of sitting in water, with its buoyancy affect takes an incredible amount of gravitational pressure that is with you when you are not submerged in warm water. Sometimes the pressure lifted can equal up to 30% of your body's weight, or weight mass, and there is so much more that can be done under these conditions.
The ability for people who suffer from arthritis are able to get some exercise while in a hot tub, people who have problems with balance are much more likely to be able to move around in water in a hot tub and hot tubs for hydrotherapy have even been used in centers that treat people who are the victims of burns.
Isn't it astounding to think of the relaxing in warm water could be so healing? This understanding, of water being a healer, goes back to Ancient Egypt who would encourage people to bathe in the warm waters and they even went a step further and added essential oils to further enhance the promotion of relaxation.
During the Roman Empire the big thing to do to relax was to partake in the public baths and you could even combine some business with your relaxation time as the Roman baths were viewed as a social environment rather than a means of good hygiene.
Hot tubs for hydrotherapy are more than just warm waters, they are fitted with jets that will, with the use of air and water, soothe tired muscles, massage muscles that are tense and they can be strategically placed to concentrate on any body area that is necessary.
Are you looking for a reason to purchase a hot tub for hydrotherapy? It's a smart choice because of the money you can save by not needing to go to a rehab for your exercises, or to a hospital, but is something you can treat yourself to any time of the day or night. The benefits of hot tubs with hydrotherapy far out weigh any cost because you can't put a price on your good health, not to mention your mental health as well, which is greatly improved when your physical body is feeling well.
The bottom line is this, you can't go wrong if you're looking for a hot tub and why not equip it with the hydrotherapy jets, it'll only get better.
