After a long, hard day of work, many people enjoy hot tubs to rest, relax and reduce stress. Good health is so essential to a high quality of life.

Patients can gradually rebuild muscles by moving through water.
- Temperature: Humidifiers are used to clear out nasal, throat and lung passages. This is good for people with asthma. A soothing hot tub is a natural humidifier. Alternating cold ice with a hot tub soak can treat sore muscles and injuries. The hot tub’s temperature can be used as part of the natural healing process.
- Massage jets: Many types of massaging jets – swirl, whirlpool and pillow –can target different parts of the body. Strong streams of water soothe aching muscles. Movable jets can also be installed for flexible jet therapy.
