THROUGHOUT history and in different cultures across the world, water has been considered central to restoring health and harmony.

The benefits of water and massage in strengthening the constitution and treating disease date back to Hippocrates (c. 460-377BC, best known as the father of Western medicine), and to the ancient Egyptians, who believed that water had both physical and sacred properties. Given that an estimated 85 per cent of all illness is stress related, massage is increasingly used both preventively and therapeutically to combat the effect of stress and promote relaxation.

Using a hot tub, with its consistent warm water and powerful massage jets, can bring you to a more relaxed state, relieve tension and help lower high blood pressure. Using a Salt Water spa (HotSpring ACE System) eliminates harsh chemicals, extends water life and eliminates odour. Adding aromatherapy oils increases relaxation even more. For general pain, immersing in warm water raises your body temperature, causing your blood vessels to dilate and increase circulation.

This can relieve sore muscles, headaches and even chronic pain. Water exercise, a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles, can help people who find weight bearing exercise difficult or painful on dry land. The buoyancy of warm water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness.

  Furthermore, the water supports joints, encouraging free movement, and the water acts as resistance, helping build muscle strength. The benefits of a hot tub are varied and the overall improvement in well-being means that this is more than a frivolous indulgence; it is part of feel good regime.
