Benefits of a Spa Jacuzzi
Most of us know that when you use a Spa it is very good for us.
From that very moment that your feet enter and your shoulders submerge into that bubbling luxuriant warm water you will feel that warm welcoming glow that envelops you.
What better way, when it is cold, than to just warm up in a Spa and equally what better way is there to cool off when its warm.
Whether it is just that very special respite that we all seek in a mind calming way at the end of an exhausting working day or perhaps it is simply being able to spend that special quality time with your family, friends and loved ones.
The quality of your life will increase considerably, improving your health and happiness from the very many therapeutic benefits that flow from a hydro-massage of warm jetted water. One needs to discover yourself the very many benefits of Hot Tub ownership and the lifestyle filled with hydro massage, peace, relaxation and pleasant memories that automatically goes with it.
What a fantastic way to get the water therapy that you need and refresh your mind and body at the same time.
The very clever physical properties of water make it an ideal medium in which to exercise and to treat muscle, neck, shoulder and back pain. The simple advantages that water provides to help with hydro-massage and hydrotherapy is related to the buoyancy, viscosity and hydrostatic pressure effects of water.
Buoyancy - The flotation effect of water helps to counterbalance gravity to a limited degree and thereby helps to support your body weight and using different massage seats in the Spa can control this. So in simple terms a direct result of being immersed in water is that the buoyancy and semi-buoyancy effect dramatically reduce ones own body weight possibly by as much as 90% and in so doing this simply reduces the weight pressure on Muscles, Tendons and Joints.
This semi buoyancy can be a support to the development of improved balance and strength and some simple exercises such as stretching and flexing can be carried out.
Viscosity - Water naturally provides gentle resistance by means of friction and this combined with a mixture of pressure provided by the warmed water allows one to strengthen and gently improve the condition of aches and pains, while at the same time reducing the risk of further injury due to loss of balance.
Hydrostatic pressure - there are powerful effects produced by hydrostatic pressure that improve heart and lung function, making some gentle exercise a very useful way to maintain and strengthen heart and lung function. This pressure effect greatly improves the blood flow to the muscles.
Together, these properties allow for treatment of aches & pains, and the buoyancy effect allows you to reduce the weight placed on your body while stretching in the Spa. For example, individuals with osteoarthritis in the neck and shoulder could practice arm circles or shoulder rolls in water to improve their range of motion and strength. Because the water provides a mild resistance but it also provides support through buoyancy, the person would most likely not experience the pain caused when a tired arm drops suddenly, as can happen at the end of other exercises.
Now that you have some idea of the very many benefits of having a spa you need to be careful when looking so that when you buy you do not actually end up in real Hot Water so here are a few simple points to consider.
As with many things in life it does pay to buy the best quality that one can afford, from a manufacturer who has been established for many decades as opposed to perhaps a cheap import. Remember the old saying, buying cheap can often mean that you end up buying twice.
So, my best advice is, that one should, only buy a product that is well built by an American or Western, internationally recognized, producer of Hot Tubs and then there is every chance that the product will last and last and give very many years of faultless performance.
The reason is simple the internationally recognized producer backs his products with a real guarantee, so if it has a fault it falls back on the manufacturer not on you. As you can imagine these manufacturers have had decades of experience and they build them with the proper parts and components so it will not fail and it is for that reason and that reason alone that they are prepared to provide a long life guarantee.
