Stress Relief ? A Backyard Hot Tub Is Your Answer

We all know what it's like coming home from a busy day and needing some fast relaxation and stress relief. Many people choose to reach for that quick drink; but why not soak your stresses away? One of the best ways you can sit outside and enjoy the backyard is to install a hot tub and let the water bring relief from stresses and strains of the day. Ancient civilizations realized the healing power of natural hot and cold springs. The Romans built baths because they believed in the value of hot springs. Hippocrates prescribed bathing and drinking spring water for its therapeutic effects in the 4th century B.C. Water healing or hydrotherapy has been used effectively in Europe for thousands of years. There are numerous water healing facilities available. Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest, inexpensive and safest methods for treating many common problems and bringing stress relief.

Thanks to the Jacuzzi brothers; a huge hot tub and spa industry with many manufacturers has grown for our benefit. These brothers also realized the benefits of moving warm water early on and developed a pump that would become the jets in a regular tub. We have them to thank. The hot tubs of today are extremely high tech and know just where to place the jets for optimum relief. The new tubs can be customized to include televisions, lights, music and more. You can even install a remote control that will turn on the tub and get the water warm from anywhere with a cell phone; now that's convenience. You might consider the style of hot tub that offers seating in a vertical position. You don't always want to be in a lounging position. Spas and hot tubs are good for whole body treatments and the water should come to shoulder level for maximum stress relief. A hot tub is soothing to the nerves and helpful for bladder and urinary problems, mild colds and low fevers. A dip in the hot tub should last at least 20 minutes. Hot tubs magically circulate warm water & air through a system of high pressure jets to provide therapeutic muscle stimulation and relax anyone in the tub. These jets are clustered to massage specific groups of muscles at the same time. They can be directed to stream in a moving pattern and air can be injected for a tingling, bubbling sensation. You can concentrate these jets in a particular body part just as a massage therapist could do as well. Do you feel the knots in your neck? Position the jets to pulsate on those knots and you will feel better.

Water has such great therapeutic properties it's no wonder that more people are buying spas and hot tubs for their master baths or backyards. You can find tubs that are just for the two of you if you are empty nesters, or look for one that is big enough for the whole family and the neighborhood. Never underestimate the benefits from the warm water when it comes to relieving stress. Don't let the stresses of the world ruin the end of your day. Get in your spa or hot tubs and just enjoy.
