The History of Hydromassage

The soothing power of water has been appreciated for thousands of years, from the relaxing heat of geothermal springs to the calming sound of a waterfall or bubbling brook. However, it took an innovative family and a challenging health problem to launch the modern hot tub industry.

Hydromassage Pioneers

The Jacuzzi brothers immigrated to California from Italy in the early 1900s and were inventors from the start. Their passion for creation led to their first success: the first enclosed cabin monoplane, which was used by the U.S. postal service. Next came an ingenious water pump that transformed agriculture. Fortune seemed to be smiling on the family. But in the 1940s, debilitating rheumatoid arthritis struck the 15-month-old son of Candido Jacuzzi. Searching for relief for his small son, he redesigned the agricultural pump to work at home in the bathtub. The concept of an at-home spa was novel and extremely popular. A legendary company was born.

Wonderful Whirlpools

That first pump is now known as the Jacuzzi® J-300™ pump, and it was the beginning of a revolution in water therapy. Demand for the pump continued to grow, and in 1956 the Jacuzzi company was officially formed. However, the portable pump was just the beginning. In 1968, Roy Jacuzzi created the first self-contained hydrotherapy tub, and the whirlpool bath business boomed. Incorporating the first-ever built-in jets, “The Roman” personal whirlpool provided an unparalleled experience of relaxation and massage.

A Cultural Phenomenon

The Jacuzzi family had hit on a big idea, and they pushed it even further. With the inclusion of heating and filtration systems and the creation of larger tubs, the Jacuzzi® Hot Tub as we know it today was created. In the 1970s, the first family-sized tub was introduced, and in the ‘80s the hot tub moved outside alongside the pool and patio, becoming a backyard sensation. However, Jacuzzi never forgot its beginnings changing the health of a child.

Latest Innovations

Today, the Jacuzzi® Brand remains at the forefront of hydromassage as a health and wellness benefit. Exclusive PowerPro® jets are designed to swirl and spiral, bubble and more, along with jets for volume and jets for precision. The ergonomically designed RX Jet Lounge Seat delivers a fully adjustable experience, while the PowerPro® Therapy Seat provides personalized massage from head to toe. As research into the benefits of water massage grows, the Jacuzzi® Brand will continue to develop cutting-edge products.

5 Ways to Keep Your Skin Healthy After Soaks

Soaking in a hot tub is a wonderful, healthy thing to do for your body, especially when you take good care of your skin. Here are a few tips to keep your epidermis fresh and happy while you use your hot tub.

1. Shower Off Afterward

Use warm water and soap to wash away any lingering chlorine or other chemicals. Don’t use hot water, which can strip away some of the natural protection the outer surface of the skin provides and leave you vulnerable to irritants and dryness.

2. Pat Dry, Don’t Rub

Make this a part of your skin care routine when you emerge from your hot tub—be gentle to your skin by patting it dry instead of rubbing, which can pull and irritate. Find towels that are made of a nonabrasive material like bamboo yarn or Egyptian cotton, which are extremely soft, yet durable and absorbent.

3. Moisturize

Apply a lush moisturizer to your skin after showering off, as damp skin is more absorbent and the lotion will lock in the moisture from the shower. Shea butter and cocoa butter are good choices for natural skin care, or choose a lotion enhanced with AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids).

4. Check Your Water Quality

Make sure your chlorine and pH levels are within standards recommended for your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub to ensure your skin is protected. Consider using a spa water conditioner, which can help stabilize the pH, soften the water, and provide extra moisture to leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Some conditioners even deliver a fresh fragrance to turn your hot tub into a true spa experience.

5. Stick to Safe Limits

As an overall rule, don’t soak too long in your spa. Take a break after 20 minutes, and always remember to drink water. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your skin.

With a few simple tips, you can keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy after relaxing in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub.

The Seven Ailments that Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs Can Alleviate

Hydrotherapy and hydromassage can be used to relieve the symptoms of a multitude of maladies including stress, arthritis, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, lower-back pain, post-exercise soreness, and leg cramps/restless legs syndrome.

Here’s a closer look at these afflictions and how Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs can alleviate their harmful effects.

  • STRESS

Stress can originate from any number of life’s facets, including money, work, family, and health. And according to a report by the Mayo Clinic, the long-term activation of the stress-response system can disrupt almost all of your body’s natural processes and put you at increased risk for numerous health problems.1 But just 10 minutes in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub each day can dissolve stress and relieve headaches by increasing blood flow and soothing muscles.

  • ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is a condition that stiffens joints and causes pain for roughly 350 million people on the planet. Heated hydrotherapy, however—such as is offered in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub—has been proven to reduce pain levels in those with arthritis by opening blood vessels, increasing range of movement, and promoting muscle growth.2

  • SLEEPLESSNESS

If you suffer from bouts of sleeplessness, some time in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can send you to snoozeville in no time at all. According to the Better Sleep Council, immersing your body in warm water helps create healthy sleep habits by relieving tension and stimulating circulation.3 Plus, when your body is cooling down after a hot tub session, your brain receives subconscious messages suggesting that you sleep.

  • FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects the entire body in myriad ways. The disorder is often associated with sweeping musculoskeletal discomfort, but can also negatively impact the mood, energy level, and sleep habits of those coping with it. The Mayo Clinic notes that warm water is effective in treating fibromyalgia, due to its ability to foster relaxation and mitigate muscle tension.4

  • LOWER-BACK PAIN

In a 2012 survey conducted by the American Physical Therapy Association, nearly two out of every three Americans admitted to dealing with discomfort in their lower backs at one point or another. With so many individuals afflicted by this pain, it’s no wonder that the “Journal of Musculoskeletal Research” stated that hydrotherapy offers more potential benefits for those with lower-back pain, in comparison to land-based forms of exercise.5 

  • POST-EXERCISE SORENESS

Spending time in the gym can work wonders for your body, but sore muscles the day following an intense session can make movement difficult. That’s why Dr. James Andrews, former president of the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine, recommends hydrotherapy for every athlete based on its ability to increase blood flow, improve sensory impulses, and assuage stiff joints.6

  • LEG CRAMPS/RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME

Though there remains uncertainty as to the cause behind the unpleasant sensation that millions of people experience in their thighs, calves, and feet, one likely factor is that brain misfires signals to sensory nerves in the lower extremities. Relaxing in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub prior to sleeping can diminish those feelings and while putting your muscles at ease.7

Spending time in your hot tub or bathtub to enjoy hydrotherapy can help ameliorate suffering from these ailments. Consult your physician for the best course of action for your medical condition.

How Hot Tubs Can Help Aging Skiers and Athletes

Skiing is a sport that is particularly rough on the knees; despite modern equipment and advancing medicinal practices, skiing on aging joints can be a hazardous practice. So how can skiers, and athletes in general, continue to enjoy the sports they love, while minimizing the stress on their bodies? A recent article in “The San Francisco Examiner” called “Skiing on an Aging Knee[1],” addresses this exact issues:

Skiing into Your 80s

In the article, Dr. Kevin R. Stone, an orthopedic surgeon in San Francisco, took a look at methods to keep skiers moving well into their 80s, and one of his suggestions was soaking in a hot tub.

“To ski, we must bend the knees,” Dr. Stone notes. Bending the knee affects where you go while you ski, as well as how the rest of your body moves with the motion. The article focuses on the effect skiing has on older knees, but in reality the knee is just the lynchpin to the rest of the body. Hips, ankles, elbows, and wrists are all affected by skiing, and keeping them all healthy and functioning is critical to enjoying a good run down the slope.

Maintaining Flexibility with Hot Tubs

To help you attain maximum flexibility while skiing, Dr. Stone recommends sitting in a hot tub before hitting the hills. “Stretching in a warm bath, hot tub, or shower improves flexibility,” he writes, pointing out that such exercise helps loosen up the tissue.

In addition, the hot tub is naturally a place for you to sit quietly and clear your mind, allowing you to focus more on your upcoming ski run. You’ll have a much easier time coming down the mountain if you aren’t thinking about your upcoming work projects or other stressors in your life.

Stretching to Stay on the Slopes

Spend some time soaking in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub to maximize the benefits Dr. Stone describes in his article. While you’re in your spa, perform simple stretches, such as leg lifts and toe points, to help your body limber up and prep for the skiing ahead.

4 Methods Different Cultures Use to Relax

Relaxation, or the general release of concerns and tension, is an important part of stress management around the world. According to The Mayo Clinic, “Relaxation techniques can help you cope with everyday stress and with stress related to various health problems.” Your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub is the perfect place to unwind and de-stress, combining benefits similar to relaxation techniques various countries apply worldwide. From heat to massage, here are four methods different cultures use to relax:

Finland

The Fins enjoy using saunas to relax. While many are now built into Finnish homes, the traditional sauna is a separate, self-contained wooden structure. Users enter the sauna after washing up; hot water is thrown on rocks to create steam. If it’s been a particularly stressful day, the user may knead and massage their muscles with a silver birch branch to further relax tension. After some time spent in the heat, the user leaves the sauna with loosened muscles and clean pores. The sauna ritual is often completed by leaping into a pool or a pile of snow; alternatively, users can just relax with some snacks in a cooler room. To extend the health benefits, Fins often repeat the cycle of sauna and cold water over and over again.

Thailand

Everyone enjoys the comfort and tension release of a good massage, but the Thai variation is particularly relaxing. The art of Thai massage combines practices from Indian and Asian traditions, and its modern variant is designed to bring balance to the recipient’s body, mind, and soul. It typically takes place on a mat instead of a massage table, and a well-trained Thai massage therapist will shift your body around in practiced movements that may surprise some who are accustomed to lying still for a massage. The Thai style is renowned for easing tension in muscles, improving flexibility, and cutting down on joint pain.

Sweden

Floatation is a therapy rapidly gaining a foothold in Sweden and the U.K. Users climb into an isolation tank, which is essentially a large tub filled with warm salt water and sealed off from light and sound. The user inserts earplugs and floats in the darkened chamber. Floatation is an excellent way to meditate and otherwise relax; the sensory deprivation cuts you off from the outside world, allowing you to focus entirely on your breathing and improve your peace of mind.

Japan

For centuries, the Japanese have relaxed by visiting hot springs. Japan has a very active volcano system, which in turn has led to some truly spectacular geothermal water sources. These waters are believed to be infused with minerals that can assist in healing and general relaxation. Japanese hot springs are referred to as onsen, and these bathhouses feature a calm, quiet atmosphere to promote ultimate relaxation.

Relaxation is more important than ever in our fast-paced lives, but you don’t have to travel around the world to unwind. The benefits of steam, massage, buoyancy, and heat can be found in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub. We hope you’ve found this look at how other cultures de-stress enlightening.

How to Target Tired Feet with Hot Tub and Bathtub Jets

While getting a foot massage is nice, there’s nothing quite like the power of warm water and hydromassage. Just as your shoulders, back, and legs benefit from this soothing pressure, you can use these same tricks to revive fatigued feet. If your arches and heels have been giving you some trouble, here’s how to target these areas with Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and Bathtub jets:

Jetted Foot Dome

Hot tubs like the J-345™ have a jet dome built into the bottom of the structure. This raised dome is studded with specialized jets that will massage and soothe sore muscles in your feet. Hold your feet just above the dome, or rest them directly atop it for a wonderful, relaxing hydromassage.

Foot Jets

Foot jets built into hot tub lounge seats—such as the J-480™ and bathtubs like the Elara™ Salon™ Spa Bathtub—are perfect for massaging your feet. They also promote circulation toward the heart. The jets in the J-480™ are adjustable, so you can direct the perfect amount of pressure to your tired feet. Craft a personalized experience through the Elara™ control panel, and relax and renew your feet through a gentle yet effective hydromassage.

Warm Water Soak

Specialized jets aside, simply soaking your feet in warm water is both therapeutic and relaxing. Immersing your feet in your hot tub or bathtub’s water will go a long way toward easing up tight and clenched muscles. Taking the weight off your feet while you soak them can also reduce the swelling and soreness that may accompany standing all day.

Spending time in your hot tub or bathtub will help you relax both your mind and your body. When you invest in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub, you’re investing in long-term care for your entire body—feet included.

Can a Hot Tub Help Relieve Headaches?

You know that a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can ease aches and pains in your back, legs, or shoulders. But can a hot tub relieve headaches? The answer is yes. Read on to learn more.

Tackling Tension Headaches

A tension headache, also known as a stress headache, may stem from tight, uncomfortable muscles in the back, which can pull on one another until they cause great pain in your head and neck. To treat your tension headache, climb into your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and position the jets so they hit pressure points along your back and neck. Since tension headaches often begin with neck and back muscles, helping these muscles relax will ease a tension headache.

Managing Migraine Headaches

For those who wrestle with migraine headaches, finding relief fast is at the top of your list. According to the Mayo Clinic, both stress and changes in sleep habits can contribute to an onset of a migraine, both of which can be addressed by spending time in your hot tub. Although your doctor will determine the best course of action when treating your migraines, the therapeutic benefits of your hot tub not only help you relax and reduce stress, they also remedy sleeplessness, both of which can help curb a menacing migraine.

As long as your doctor gives you the green light, spending time in your hot tub may help relieve your headaches.  Drink plenty of water while enjoying your hot tub, as well as limiting yourself to 20 minutes at a time.

Apps to Help you Relax and De-stress in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s more important than ever to let yourself decompress and relax. While your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub is an excellent way to de-stress, you may also look to your smartphone or tablet to further assist in achieving a tranquil state of mind. Here are some must-try apps that will help you fully unwind while enjoying your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub:

Rainy Mood App

This application is available on iTunes and the Android market. In its most basic mode, it produces the sound of a soft, soothing rain shower. Additional options include “impact textures” (such as rain hitting dirt, or a tin roof) and the ability to utilize your music library in the background. Turn on this app, close your eyes, and let your mind wander.

Calm App

This app is designed to guide you through the meditation process, but it’s also excellent at helping you relax or doze off. Listen to guided meditation sessions and set up background sounds to block out the noise of the world around you. The app is also equipped with soothing meditative music and additional content. You can get it on iTunes and for Android phones.

Spa Soundscapes Channel on iHeartRadio

Download the iHeartRadio app to your tablet or smartphone and switch the channel to Spa Soundscapes. This station plays quiet, soothing music that fades easily into the background. It remains an unobtrusive presence during your soak in your hot tub or bathtub. Lean back, close your eyes, and let the music surround you and ease you into complete relaxation. This app is available on iTunes and the Android market.

Audiobooks

There’s nothing better than curling up in bed with a good book…except relaxing in your hot tub or bathtub with a good audiobook. Load the audio version of your favorite book onto your smartphone or tablet and listen to the story unfold. Audiobook narrators are often experienced voice actors and may even bring new nuances to stories you thought you knew by heart.

Sky Map

Before you climb into your hot tub, power up Sky Map on a clear night and hold your phone up to the sky to identify a number of constellations. Once you know where the constellations are, you can put your phone in a safe place and gaze at the star patterns you’ve identified from the warmth of your hot tub. This app is available on iTunes and Android.

Sometimes it can be hard to force yourself to enjoy some downtime. With these apps and your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub, you’ll be able to create the ideal setting for relaxation.

Fast Facts You Didn’t Know About Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs

Whether you already own a hot tub or are considering adding one to your home, there may be a few things you didn’t know about these warm-water retreats. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs enhance your personal health regimen and certainly liven up your backyard gatherings, but they also have a rich history and interesting role to play in people’s lives. Here are seven interesting fast facts about Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs:

The use of hot tubs extends back thousands of years in human history

In Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Japan, people believed in their positive cleansing and therapeutic effects. The original models were naturally occurring hot springs or baths into which scalding rocks were lowered. Later hot tubs included fire-heated basins, then evolved into the more modern versions that are crafted from wood, cement, stainless steel, acrylic, and plastic.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tub technology originated in the aviation and agricultural industries

The seven Jacuzzi brothers were innovative engineers. After developing the first enclosed-cabin monoplane, they revolutionized the agricultural industry in 1925 by creating the first submersible pump. When a young Jacuzzi family member developed rheumatoid arthritis, the brothers created an aerating submersible pump to provide pain-reveling hydrotherapy treatments in the bathtub.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs provide several different types of therapy, aside from hydromassage

Hydromassage is just one of the health benefits you can reap with a home spa. You can also enjoy chromatherapy, using various colors of light to calm and rejuvenate, and reflexology, targeting pressure points on your hands and feet to relieve tension.

Hot tub technology is continually being innovated and improved

Water jets, heating, and circulation features are always getting better, and much more energy efficient and affordable than most people realize. Some models cost only $14 a month in energy costs.

Hot tub cleaning and upkeep is pretty easy and affordable

It doesn’t take daily scrubbing and expensive equipment to keep a hot tub in pristine condition. With a bit of vigilance – regular checks of your water’s chemical balance and filtration – you’ll only need to drain your tub every 3 to 6 months, depending on frequency of use.

A Jacuzzi® Dealership holds a Guinness World Record

The title for the most nationalities in a single hot tub belongs to a spa dealership in Alicante, Spain. In 2012, people from 26 countries squeezed into a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub for a quick five-minute splash to claim the Guinness World Record.

It’s easy to update your hot tub and keep it current

Even if your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub is a few years old, you can easily update it with a variety of accessories, from spa covers, lifts, wind guards, and lighted steps that will lend even greater personalization.

Creative Ideas for Your Winter Hot Tub Party

Winter has arrived, which means long, cold nights. Why not welcome the season—and combat the chill—with a gathering of family and friends? Make your backyard a winter sanctuary by offering food, drink, and of course a soak in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. Here are some creative ideas for your winter hot tub party:

Install Lights

In winter, your trees are often bare. This may look bleak during the daytime, but bare branches are far easier to adorn with lights. Hang strings of lights from the branches, running them through separate trees or connecting trees to one another. When the sun goes down, you’ll have a magnificent winter light show.

 Provide Warmth

Keep your guests warm and cozy by providing a basket full of blankets and towels. If you have a towel heater, place the blankets there to warm them up before handing them out. When your party makes its way to the hot tub, keep the towels on the heater or at least in a protected place to ensure you can all wrap up with something comfortable and dry when you step out of the water.

Offer Toasty Drinks

Combat the cold air of a winter evening with a bar full of warm drinks. Keep hot chocolate, tea, and coffee standing by, as well as some stouter beverages. Offer your guests a Spanish hot coffee—made with coffee and Spanish bourbon—or a hot buttered rum.

Make S’mores

You can’t go wrong with s’mores to warm up a winter night. Light the fire pit, cover an outdoor table with a festive cloth, and then set out the ingredients for these cold-weather treats. Remember to use the old standbys of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows, but you can offer your guests more creative options as well. Provide caramel, more elaborate types of chocolate like dark or white, and fruits like strawberries and bananas. For a salty and sweet combination, offer your guests bacon bits to sprinkle on their s’mores.

There’s a great deal you can do to celebrate the winter season with your friends and family. For a special touch, consider sending out invitations to properly invite your guests to your party. Kori Clark has created the perfect invitation for every Jacuzzi® Hot Tub-themed celebration, making it easy for you to add another touch of creativity and style to your winter celebration.
