Whether you purchase a hot tub to improve your physical and mental health or for relaxation, hydromassage plays a large role in getting to your goal. Dr. Bruce D. Bradley of Loma Linda University’s Department of Physical Therapy explains that “hydromassage jets, properly positioned in a warm bath or spa, can assist in circulation of the extremities.” This is why we extensively research the placement of each specialized jet throughout our hot tubs. Here are our most popular jets to consider when determining which type of spa jets are best for you:
Hydromassage for Your Back
For a jet that delivers a powerful massage that targets discomforts and ailments in your back, consider the following jets:
PowerPro® RX: Rotate the dial on the face of the jet to point it in the direction you want, as well as to adjust the pressure. This jet features a spinning action, and feels like a steady pulse against large portions of your back.
PowerPro® FX Rotational: Air and water move in circles against your back, evoking the sensation of thumbs pressing against those overlooked areas. This jet is similar to the PowerPro® RX, but homes in on smaller muscle groups.
PowerPro® FX Large Rotational: This jet provides a strong massage across a wide group of muscles. The ample reach of this jet ensures steady pressure against larger muscles, not unlike the repeated strong pressure of a Swedish massage.
Hydromassage for Your Legs and Feet
Legs and feet often go unrewarded for their constant hard work. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs alleviate the aches and pains that may come with being constantly on the go with jets installed all along the bottom of the seat and the hot tub itself, reaching these long-ignored appendages. These jets include:
PowerPro® FX Small: Enjoy a strong hydromassage that focuses on smaller portions of the body, providing a steady stream of vigorous pressure on a particular spot. This is a directional jet, perfect for overworked lower extremities. Use this jet to relieve sore calves, calloused heels, and tender arches.
PowerPro® FX: This jet creates a stream of air and water that also targets smaller muscle groups. Adjust the pressure and allow the jet’s circular motion to swirl pressure against your achy joints.
PowerPro® BX: This “bubbler” jet focuses exclusively on the calves. Pressure bubbles pulse steadily along your legs, refreshing your skin and reinvigorating tired muscles.
Hydromassage for Hard-to-Reach Places
These two jets specifically focus on areas you might forget:
PowerPro® PX: This jet delivers a pulsing massage to small muscle groups, such as the ones in your wrists and hands. Muscles you use frequently while typing at a computer all day are typically ignored in traditional hydrotherapy sessions.
PowerPro® NX2: This jet focuses entirely on the neck, directing a high-pressure stream of water toward the small muscle groups there. This focused jet is also adjustable to help you massage your tension away.
While a number of these jets are available on all Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, there are a handful that are found only in specific models. Find your local dealer to help you choose the best model for your needs.
