Hydrotherapy is a treatment several centuries old. As early as 500 B.C., the Greeks were already known for enjoying thermal water baths. At the same, the ancient Romans highly valued the idea of thermal water; in fact, for six hundred years, majority of their medical treatments involved thermal baths. Hydrotherapy has come a long way since then; modern technology now allows us to enjoy the benefits of the treatment in the comfort of our own homes.
A Hot Tub Guide article discussed the advantages of having modern Vancouver hot tubs in your own house:
Hot tub hydrotherapy can help bring about a good night’s sleep, may help keep joints moving, restore strength and flexibility and soothe arthritis pain. A hydrotherapy hot tub session is a great experience any time of the day or any season of the year.
How hydrotherapy hot tubs work: Water is used to speed recovery from injuries, relieve muscle soreness by facilitating the removal of lactic acid, open the blood vessels to improve circulation, help the muscles around arthritic joints relax, and promote the flow of endorphins.
However, before purchasing a hot tub, one needs to carefully consider factors like the design and energy efficiency rating of a unit. Look for a manufacturer which offers ergonomically designed hot tubs that allow for comfortable dips. Specialists companies such as H2O Spas carry a wide array of different styles and sizes to choose from, so don’t be afraid to search for the particular installation that will suit your needs.
