The Best Hot Tubs Provide Helpful Sleep Hydrotherapy

This Summer, Experience the Best Hot Tub Relaxation

These long summer days and hot summer nights can make it hard to get to bed on time and stay asleep. June 21, 2011 marks the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere – the first official day of summer and the day with the most hours of sunlight. This time of year, it’s easy to see why people have trouble winding down in the evening. Those extra hours of light tempt us to do more and extend our work or play time. But we still have to get up at the same time in the morning.

Is there a safe and effective relaxation method that works best? The best hot tub hydrotherapy from a Jacuzzi spa gets our vote!

Dodge Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & ½ Marathon June 3-4, 2011: Meet elite runner Luke Humphrey from Team Hanson’s-Brooks in the Jacuzzi booth on Friday, June 3 at 4:00 p.m. Hear how Luke is preparing to follow up his second place half marathon finish in New Orleans (& receive a special offer from Jacuzzi!)

As days lead up to a marathon, training runs become longer and the body adapts to the physical stresses of running harder and running farther. Throughout the course of training, the majority of runners experience some sort of muscle soreness. Sore, achy muscles can not only make training uncomfortable, but it can also be difficult to stay on track. The good news is that there are ways to relieve muscle soreness, including recovering with Jacuzzi patented hydrotherapy suited for the needs of physically active people.


Buying a Hot Tub: Hot Tub Installation

Will I Need to Install Plumbing and Electrical for My Hot Tub?

Hot Tub Installation: No special plumbing is required! Most hot tubs are portable and above-ground. Simply fill up the hot tub with your garden hose.

That said, remember to keep in mind that a hot tub filled with water is heavy. A good, solid hot tub foundation is essential for any hot tub. The area that it rests on must be able to support the weight of the hot tub, the water in it, and those who use it. If you are installing on an elevated structure, it is recommended that you consult a contractor or structural engineer to find specific hot tub requirements for decks.

Year Round Relaxation for an Active Family in a Large City

Spa Owner: Basil K.
Hot Tub Installation Location: Winnipeg, MB
Dealer: Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs of Manitoba (Spaworks)
Spa Model: J-480

  • Why did you choose to purchase a Jacuzzi® brand hot tub versus another brand? Value, features, name brand, comprehensive warranty, but most importantly the dealer was much more knowledgeable and supportive than any others in our area. I could tell by the level of customer service that I initially received that this would be a good long term decision. When purchasing a spa you really need to find a dealer that is not only going to assist you in making the best purchasing decision, but you need to find a dealer that will be there for the follow up service for years to come. more

Hot Tub Jets (Part 2 of 2)

Hot Tub Jet Formations and Number of Massage Experiences

Instead of being concerned with spa jet count, consider hot tub jet formations. The below steps and questions could help you choose the spa that offers the experience that’s right for you.

  • Take a good look at the hot tub.
    How many seating positions with hydrotherapy hot tub jets (“therapy stations”) does it offer?
    How many different massage experiences can you find?
  • Check the placement and combination of jets.
    Are the large, powerful jets placed for the appropriate muscle groups in your body, such as your lower back, shoulders, and feet?

Choosing the Right Hot Tub Jet Combination

There seems to be an obsession in consumers’ minds with hot tub jet count when it comes down to determining which spa is suitable. The number of hot tub jets alone does not guarantee a good massage. A combination of the right hot tub jets in the right formation ensures a good massage.
