Hot tubs can help reduce dependence on medications for chronic pain sufferers
Barrie, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/21/2014 -- Growing emphasis is being placed on effective holistic methods of alleviating chronic pain in order to decrease dependence on pharmaceuticals. While massage therapy and acupuncture continue to gain popularity, hydrotherapy is clearly emerging as a favorite among patients with numerous medical conditions. Having been well aware of the health benefits of hot tubs for years, Cameron Pittock of Jacuzzi has launched efforts to increase awareness of the therapeutic effects of hot tubs for Ontario residents.
Said Pittock, "Jacuzzi hot tubs have offered relief in many forms since their introduction in the late 1950's. In fact, the inventor himself created them for the purpose of alleviating the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Many are initially hesitant to invest in a Jacuzzi of their own, but we can assure them the relaxation alone is well worth the cost.”
The use of hydrotherapy dates back to ancient Greece where people discovered the healing power of natural hot springs in easing pain and diminishing certain ailments. Most people today have heard of the ability of a hot bath to relax sore, aching muscles. With the massaging power of Jacuzzi jets, the results are compounded. One of the reasons for this is the increased circulation delivered through the combination of heat and pressure.
Medical research has shown those suffering from arthritis can also benefit greatly from the use of a Jacuzzi in Ontario. Pressure from Earth's natural gravitational pull places immense strain on joints; however, being immersed in water reduces this strain by an estimated 90 percent. This provides relief from the pain of arthritis as well as increased mobility. These effects can be still be felt after leaving the hot tub.
These are the most common advantages of owning a hot tub, but there are also some lesser known benefits. The heat and massage of a hot tub relieve physical stress, which in turn reduces severe headaches and anxiety. For the 70 percent of adults who suffer from some degree of insomnia, this reduction in stress also helps offer improved sleep. All these perks combined lead to an overall sense of well being.
Concluded Pittock, "When potential customers come to us asking, 'Why buy a hot tub,' we mention all these aspects to them. When they ask specifically, 'why purchase a Jacuzzi hot tub,' the answer is just as simple. The Jacuzzi brand is synonymous with comfort, quality and durability. The soothing effects of a hot tub are beyond compare, and the characteristics of the original name in hot tub design are unrivaled."
As the premier hot tub retailer in Ontario, Jacuzzi has earned a reputation for reliability and performance. The company is dedicated to providing the highest level of quality and customer service.
