Warm water therapy has been used for centuries as an integral part of general health and well being. The healing powers of water have brought verifiable benefits to millions of bathers. Through the ages, the Romans, Greeks, Japanese and other cultures have realized its many benefits through spirit, mind and body.

We know that water heals us in many ways. Since more than 50 percent of our body chemistry is composed of water, it only makes sense that this precious liquid be linked to our healing needs. Today, hot tubs continue to provide many health benefits simply by combining fresh, heated water with the massaging action of powerful jets.

The three main healing ingredients to the "hydrotherapy" experience are heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create an experience that is both relaxing and healthy. The physical benefits derived from regular hot tub use go much deeper than just relaxation and pleasure. Water is so pure and simple, yet it can do amazing things.


The hot tub industry began in the 1960's in California. Hot tubs became popular because the industry, along with the movies, promoted two things: fun and romance. The spa industry in the 1980's saw dramatic changes and soon realized that there were many other reasons to using a hot tub. Personal relaxation and family bonding were the two biggest reasons for its growth. The quality of life spent together was an uplifting improvement from the traditional routine of watching TV.

The spa industry of the 1990's continues to grow by discovering the added benefits of health and wellness. Through advanced technology and improved products, today's hot tubs provide tremendous health benefits. The medical profession now credits hot tubs in helping patients with many ailments, including stress, sleep disorders, diabetes and arthritis, to name a few.


Many people suffer from some form of arthritis pain. The good news for these victims is that there are safe and effective ways to both minimize the discomfort and prevent further damage.

According to a publication from The Arthritis Foundation, Spas, Pools, and Arthritis, "Regular sessions in a hot tub helps keep joints moving. It restores and preserves strength and flexibility, and also protects your joints from further damage. Exercise can also improve a person's coordination, endurance, and the ability to perform daily tasks, and can lead to an enhanced sense of self-esteem and accomplishment."

"A hot tub fulfills the need perfectly... providing the warmth, massage, and buoyancy that is so necessary to the well-being of arthritis sufferers. The buoyancy of the water supports and lessens stress on the joints and encourages freer movement. Water exercises may even act as a resistance to help build muscle strength."

According to a pamphlet printed by The Arthritis Foundation, Exercise and Your Arthritis, "Doctors and therapists know that people with Arthritis can improve their health and fitness through exercise without hurting their joints." The Arthritis Foundation further states that "Doctors frequently prescribe soaking in a hot tub first thing in the morning, before beginning daily activities. Many arthritis sufferers find this time of day to be most painful and stiffness is at its worst." A quick dip in your hot tub will help you to move through the rest of your day with comfort and ease.


The link between stress and illness should be of interest to anyone concerned with their health. We all have stress in our daily lives relating to work, family, and society. Mental tensions, frustrations, and insecurity are among the most damaging types of stress.

Affected by stress, the heart works harder, breathing becomes more rapid and shallow, and digestion slows. Nearly every process of the body is degraded. Researchers have estimated that 80% of disease is stress related. Since we usually can't avoid it, the key to dealing with stress is relieving it!

A soothing and relaxing soak in a hot tub can help counteract stress and its effects on the human body. It is the perfect antidote to a hectic and stressful lifestyle. The warm waters and soothing massage work to relieve anxiety and relax your tense muscles.

Numerous independent studies have proven that a warm water massage stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural "feel good" chemical. A hot tub will enhance your sense of well being, and leave you feeling fresh, clean, and ready to tackle life's daily challenges!
