Hot Tubs relieve the symptoms of Sports Injuries and Arthritis

Posted on 29/02/12, filed under Fresh News | No Comments

It has been scientifically proven that hot tubs really do help relieve the symptoms of various sports injuries. Athletes both professional and amateurs alike find that after a full on days training it is extremely beneficial for muscle relaxation, which helps them perform equally well day after day.

Hot tubs can also prevent injuries from happening as well, as hot water before exercise makes the blood vessels dilate and blood flow to increase which relaxes every muscle.

Not only this, the BISHTA has said that regular use of hot tubs help with the aches and nasty pains caused by arthritis.

• Immersing in warm water raises your body temperature, causing your blood vessels to dilate and increasing circulation.
• Water exercise is a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles.
• Water supports joints to encourage free movement, and may also act as resistance to help build muscle strength.
• Using a hot tub adds a component to the therapy – massage.

Enjoying a Winter Hot Tub is the Best!

Posted on 22/02/12, filed under Fresh News | No Comments

The initial thought of possibly enjoying a hot tub in the winter months might seem a little strange, but if you are already a hot tub owner you know that there is nothing more enjoyable on a freezing cold night than to cover those shoulders with lovely warm heat with jets power at all your aches and pains.

A lot of people get more stressed and depressed over winter due to not coping with the short days and it seeming to be forever dark, and also the fact that it so blooming cold! Our bodies tense up when its colder and our shoulders can start aching where we hunch over to protect ourselves from the cold. A hot tub can warm away these aches and pains with the intensity of the warm bubbles massaging away the aches and pains and at the same time producing endorphins too, to make you feel happy again!

Another key element to bare in mind when buying a hot tub is where to put it! There is no point having a hot tub but placing it somewhere that is not easy to reach for example!Have the tub as close to the house as you possibly can, so that you can quickly tiptoe into the garden, drop your robe and be in the warmth within seconds.

Once relaxed in the hot tub, you wont feel cold at all, in fact after warming up the cold air is a very pleasant relief!

Finding The Right Hot Tub For You!

When you look into buying a hot tub you need to set a budget. For a top of the range hot tub you could pay over 10K for it with all the add ons such as Tv, surround sound stereo, extra lighting etc. It really is amazing that you can add on such luxuries in the modern age of technology that we are in! When you start adding these gadgets though, be prepared to start adding on the £££s as they are not cheap add ons. Also before you get carried away with Tvs etc, you should think about the fact that part of having a hot tub is to socialise more with your family or partner, with a TV you will just switch off again (as relaxing as that would be!)

The next phase is to decide whereabouts in the garden you will want the hot tub to go so draw out an area in your garden with the correct measurements to see how big the space needs to be. Then the surface will need to be flattened and ensure it will be able to take the full weight of the hot tub with water in as it will weigh several tons.

Once all the ground work is done, you need to decide how big the hot tub should be. If you have lots of parties and friends, and have enough room to keep a large hot tub then you should be thinking about a 9 seater hot tub to keep you and your friends happily seated and entertained. The Canterbury hot tubs are perfect for heavy entertaining and hold up to 9 people. If you are not wanting to share the experience with your friends and want it just for you and a loved one then one much smaller than that is needed as the bigger the hot tub the more cost incurred to keep it heated and to look after it properly. The perfect one for you would be the Taupo or the Dunedin depending on the number of jets you would like and of course the budget you have.
