An Outdoor Spa Helps the Family Reconnect
Consumer research indicates that parents spend real quality time with their kids in their outdoor hot tubs; my family can attest to that. Once you buy an outdoor spa, it may well become a central part of your lifestyle. My family considers our hot tub the central hub of the backyard. Even when we aren’t in the outdoor hot tub, it’s still a beautiful focal point and water feature, especially at night. Outdoor hot tubs often facilitate family entertainment, enjoyment and bonding. The main reason my husband and I considered an outdoor hot tub was for family togetherness. As a full time working mom with three active kids and a full time working husband, I often find it very challenging to spend quality, relaxing time with my family. Between my job, my husband’s job, and the kids’ sports and parties, we are always on the go and don’t make time to enjoy not having anywhere to go or anyone to see. I really do cherish lazy days at home and being able to hang out in the outdoor hot tub with my daughters and husband. Our outdoor spa has provided us many opportunities to regroup, chat, and just enjoy each other’s company without the TV, computer or phone.
Arthritis Sufferers Use Hot Tub Therapy for Pain Relief
Recently, I have been reading chatter on various social media networks regarding arthritis pain relief. So, I put out the following question to our Twitter and Facebook followers:
Have you used massage and/or hot water therapy for arthritis pain relief? Tell us your experience.
We received several replies from people suffering from arthritis of various forms and severity. Responses praised hot water therapy as a highly effective way to relieve joint pain, stiffness, swelling and inflammation from this chronic condition. Jacuzzi® Office Manager and IT Administrator, Nancy Powers, has suffered from osteoarthritis for several years, so I asked her to talk about it.
“Out of all the methods I have used including deep tissue massage, a heating pad around various parts of my body, etc., hot tub therapy works best, hands down. Chronic pain is exhausting. Warm water jets are reviving; they provide fast and relaxing arthritis pain relief. Being in massaging hot water is like heaven for my joints. My arthritis is not only in one part of my body, it’s all over, so being able to submerge my entire body in invigorating hot water is an extremely desirable method of arthritis pain relief for me.”
Big Hot Tubs are a Hit with Families at County Fairs
Summer is here and to my excitement, fair season is well underway. As a boy, I remember long days at the fair full of thrilling rides, sugary snacks, midway games, interesting shopping and most of all fun times with my family. As an adult with my own family, I must say, the fair still represents all of the above and remains a traditional familial outing.
Jacuzzi® Officially Announces New Blog and Social Media Profiles
Social media websites like Facebook and Twitter have reached a critical mass as a place where people from around the world come together to share news, ideas and information on a variety of topics. I’ve come to realize that there are many homeowners out there who are using blogs and these platforms to talk about wellness, backyard improvements, hot tubs and whirlpool baths. It is exciting to see so many conversations!
I have a few profiles on different sites that allow me to follow the latest news and keep up with my friends and family. I wouldn’t consider myself an expert in blogging, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but I recognize that it is a great way for me and our team to communicate directly with you about our great bath and hot tub collections.
Jacuzzi’s J-210 Classic Round Spa Was the Prized Desire of Expo Attendees
Round Hot Tubs: On June 24th, just days before the Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, Jacuzzi® displayed at the Health and Fitness Expo held at Qwest Events Center. 55,000 people were expected to attend the Expo, including over 27,000 race participants.
It was very important and exciting for Jacuzzi to showcase in this city, as Seattle was one of the original hot tub enthusiasts’ markets in the country. I have been in this industry for many years and I still remember the popularity of the original round hot tubs introduced about 30 years ago by west coast round spa manufacturers. As a progressive west coast city, Seattle was one of the first communities to embrace the spa lifestyle, deeming round hot tubs a backyard necessity. Natives quickly found portable hot tubs to be relief from the area’s cold and damp climate.

“I understand everyone is busy, but we should all take the time, relax and enjoy each others company when we can,” said Benefits Manager, Rosy Brennan.
Jacuzzi Communicates Hydrotherapy Massage Benefits to Golf Fans
Did you know that the most common golf injuries include back pain, tennis elbow, shoulder pain and knee pain? That sounds like a lot of stress for a game that is known to be a stress reliever. “Golf enthusiasts who excel at their game tend to push their physical limits to the max, which causes sore muscles and longer recover times without proper therapy” says Jim Sueppel, Jacuzzi Hot Tubs National Sales Manager. “Jacuzzi hydromassage allows individuals to create a personal targeted massage. Recovery time is reduced and golf experience and performance is improved because of restored strength and flexibility.”
Spa Hydromassage Received a Warm Welcome Among Marathoners
Last week eager Health and Fitness Expo attendees gathered around the Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs booth, lured in by marathoners de-stressing in massage chairs just days before the big race. Expo attendees who wanted to learn more about the many post-workout benefits of hydromassage were treated to a complimentary massage from one of six massage therapists. Guests receiving massages watched an informative and relaxing video on hydrotherapy massage, detailing one of the best ways to alleviate fatigue and muscle soreness – with a hydrotherapy spa.
