April 2, 2007 — Recent studies have shown that Americans are striving to find a greater sense of balance between work, play, and spending personal time and time with family and friends. Health and wellness have always been a priority, however more than ever before Americans are longing for reconnection and rejuvination. It's no wonder with life's hectic schedules that many Americans are rapidly discovering the array of advantages offered by hot tub ownership and the significant therapeutic benefits of hydromassage—the combination of warm water, buoyancy and the massaging action of powerful jets. The healing power of water has long been known—Asian cultures have indulged in the soothing, healing qualities of hot water for centuries. Native cultures have always known that water is a purifier for the body and for the spirit.
The soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water can help reduce stress, soothe sore and tired muscles, ease arthritis pain and even provide a better night's sleep. The massaging action of the jets stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
In today's fast paced world, a hot tub can provide the much needed relaxation and haven that provides stress relief and promotes togetherness with family and friends.
Hot tubs have evolved from wooden wine casks to well-engineered, energy efficient sophisticated designs that deliver state-of-the-art hyrdomassage. Many technological advances such as alternative-wood exteriors, and water care systems have make owning a hot tub easier than ever. From soothing jets to tranquil waterfall features, to dynamic lighting and state-of-the-art music systems, there are many options that make a hot tub both relaxing and beautiful.
