Nick Pabarcus – Team Jacuzzi
Several months after the TEAM Jacuzzi experience, it has been a great time to circle back and reflect. While I had run several marathons prior to the 2010 Las Vegas race, I had never trained or been associated with a group to share the experience like with TEAM Jacuzzi. The additional motivation was certainly felt as there were tollgates with the video blog and keeping up with the other athletes and their progress drove a bit more training and focus than normal.
For those of you who are familiar with my previous blogs and videos, running has not been a primary exercise and I normally just “bite the bullet” and train a bit for the once-a-year marathon with my longtime friend. The TEAM Jacuzzi experience had me seeing that I can incorporate 10-15 miles a week into my normal exercise routine and have really seen benefits there. I have not entered any more races as it is a moral imperative to only do one per year, but we are looking at the Phoenix Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in January as the next obstacle.

Hydrotherapy Massage Used to Treat Pain Associated with Mobile Device Use
How many people out there are practically attached to their mobile devices? I admit it, I feel naked without my cell phone. I am constantly making calls, receiving calls, sending texts, checking my email, looking for information on the internet or dabbling with a new app. I get a lot done with my lovely, lovely iPhone. On the days when I log hours staring down at my phone, feverishly accomplishing tasks, I find that I have soreness in the back of my neck.
Have you experienced any pain related to heavy cell phone use? Based on a recent poll we put out to our, the majority of heavy cell phone users experience pain in these areas:
- Hands, wrists and fingers
- Neck and shoulders
With the prevalence of modern technology, our bodies are forced into various motions and positions for which they were not designed. Neck and wrist pain sparked by the use of cell phones is a good example. If you’re a texting fanatic, enjoy talking with friends and family, and use the phone for business, you may be one of thousands of people inflicted with this pain. The good news is that there are some steps you can take to relieve the pain. Relaxing with hydrotherapy massage is one of the best.

The Best Place to Relax, Play and Connect
As tough as it is to find time for yourself these days, it can be a real challenge to get family members together to relax, reconnect and just hang out. It’s rare to find an activity that’s liked by everyone, from the kids to grandma. A big hot tub can change that scenario. Whether you’re having fun at a backyard gathering or enjoying a solo relaxation session, big hot tubs offer big benefits to families.
Adults love to relax. Put the kids to bed and steal a few moments in your Jacuzzi hot tub together. Relaxing together in warm water is said to make it easier to share romantic thoughts.
Kids just want to have fun. It’s been shown that children who share in outdoor activities are likely to develop the habit of staying active. Mom and teens relaxing in the warm water, dad cooking at the grill, little kids playing nearby… a big hot tub can be the focal point of a healthy, family-centered lifestyle.
The Hot Tub Therapy Habit
Stress is a normal part of life, but without regular relief, day-to-day stress can take a toll on our minds and bodies. While there are effective relaxation techniques known to reduce stress, most of us don’t practice them often enough, if at all. When the signs of stress – tight muscles, pain, inability to concentrate – become chronic, taking time to relax is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.
One of the benefits of owning a Jacuzzi® hot tub is that you can begin to reverse the negative effects of stress and tension in just 10 minutes a day with hot tub therapy. Getting into a regular routine of relaxation is easier when you have a hot tub in your back yard. The soothing heat, muscle stimulation, and buoyancy you experience with hot tub therapy can increase circulation, diminish joint pain and calm frayed nerves – all in just 10 minutes.

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.
