Facility at US Olympic Team Track & Field Trials Includes Hydrotherapy
Runners – including those training for the Olympic games this summer in London – often use the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy as part of their training and recovery process. At the University of Oregon where the U.S. track and field trials were held, state-of-the-art hydrotherapy amenities were part of the 2007 expansion of the athletic department’s facilities.
It’s not only elite runners pushing the limits of physical stress who benefit from hot tub hydrotherapy. Active adults like you can get the same benefits from Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs hydrotherapy, right at home.
Sore, aching muscles can make working out uncomfortable. Decrease joint pain, ease sore muscles, improve circulation, and accelerate the body’s natural healing process through hydrotherapy. A technique heralded by trainers of professional and amateur athletes alike, hot water and massage have a long legacy in promoting muscle recovery.
Shopping for a hot tub online is a good way to compare brands and models, but the virtual experience can’t replace the value you’ll receive when you visit a Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer showroom. You’ll see true hot tub colors and finishes, have an opportunity to sit in the different seats and use the control panels. But the most important part of your visit will be getting to know your spa dealer.
Jacuzz® hot tub dealers have the expertise and knowledge to answer your questions about hot tubs, from pricing to hot tub maintenance. Based on their experience with other hot tub owners, they can help guide you in choosing the features and options that make the most sense for you and your family; what you can expect to pay to operate your hot tub, and why the Jacuzzi Hot Tubs 10-year hot tub warranty is the best in the industry.
Dads of all ages love Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs spas. They trust the Jacuzzi® brand and recognize the value in owning a reliable outdoor hot tub with cool features. If you’re lucky enough to be able to present a new Jacuzzi® hot tub as a gift on Father’s Day, that’s awesome! But if you’re involved in the hot tub buying decision together, here are 3 suggestions for dad-friendly Jacuzzi® spas.
1.The Jacuzzi® J-LXL™ saves more on operating costs than any other hot tub in its class (along with the J-LX™). And what dad doesn’t like to save energy? My dad was always telling us to turn out the lights when we left a room. The J-LXL™ spa features sleek new styling, with a flattop edge and handsome cabinetry that fits into any landscape. And dad is going to love the lounge seat in this outdoor hot tub. He can lean back and enjoy a full-body hydro-massage from the Jacuzzi® jets. Download a brochure
2.The J-365™ is a BIG hot tubthat seats up to 7 adults. It’s built for good times with family and friends, and it offers a luxuriously wide choice of seating and hydrotherapy options. The PowerPro® Therapy Seat could become dad’s favorite; it massages the entire back, relieving stress and easing sore muscles.
3.The J-315™ spaworks well for new dads, empty nesters or retirees. A compact outdoor hot tub like the J-315™ has the best of the big hot tubs in a spa that seats 2-3 adults. It’s simple to maintain (important for busy new dads), and its lower height makes it easy for everyone, young or old, to enter and exit. more
Jacuzzi Hot Tubs Emphasizes Awareness of Preventable Health Problems
Along with the celebration of Father’s Day and the start of summer, June marks a special period designated by Congress for increasing awareness of men’s health problems and their prevention. Jacuzzi Hot Tubs joins the education efforts during Men’s Health Month by pointing out the positive effects of hot tub hydrotherapy in reducing stress and promoting other healthy benefits.
Studies have shown that stress can contribute to health problems, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Underlying tension and stress may make it harder to get a good night’s sleep, and it can cause symptoms of chronic muscle tension, pain and fatigue. Effective hydrotherapy, such as that delivered by Jacuzzi® hot tubs, works by loosening muscle tightness, relieving pressure on joints, and increasing circulation. According to Jacuzzi Hot Tubs, regular hot tub hydrotherapy (the combination of heat, buoyancy and massage) can help reduce stress, make it easier to relax, and promote better sleep.
“Promoting Men’s Health Month is a natural for Jacuzzi Hot Tubs. We are in the business of helping people relax, and June is the perfect time to point out that our hot tubs are not only for entertainment; hot tub hydrotherapy can help reduce stress and enhance wellness on a daily basis,” says Nate Mangum, Jacuzzi Director of Brand and Channel Marketing.
Jacuzzi® hot tub owners Barry and Patti Wilson of Newcastle, Ontario didn’t know their backyard was going to be a case study. But we think their Jacuzzi J-400™ Collection hot tub installation provides lots of good summer backyard ideas.
Create a fresh, seasonal environment around your hot tub
For example, note the palms near the hot tub, their green leaves framing the sparkling water of the hot tub. The Wilson’s home is located in Newcastle, Ontario, which is situated on the northern shore of Lake Ontario – not a place where palms grow naturally. Bringing in palm plants during the summer can calm the spirit with visions of tropical climates, and it’s an inexpensive way to create a fresh, seasonal environment around your hot tub.
“Our J-415 spa model is a well received hot tub addition to the J-400 Collection. It offers all the great features and comfort expected in a J-400 Collection spa in a smaller overall footprint”- Tracine Andrus Marroquin, Director of Marketing. The compact, yet fully featured J-415 hot tub provides just the right place to spend cherished moments with no media distractions or bonding with close friends. The J-415 small luxury hot tub was designed specifically for ease of entry and exit, making it perfect for both old and young users. At only 32″ high this spa fits more easily through doorways making delivery and set up much easier. You will find the Jacuzzi® J-415 the perfect addition to any empty nest.

Hot tubs are substantial assets that should be maintained properly. If you have never owned a hot tub, the thought of maintaining one may seem overwhelming, but in reality, maintenance is rather simple.
A few minutes a week are all that is needed so that you and your family will enjoy using your hot tub for years to come. Hot tub maintenance doesn’t require a lot of skill, but you do have to know what to do and when to do it.
From the exterior to the interior to water chemistry, here are some tips for proper hot tub maintenance.
Why It Stands Out From Other 4-5 Person Hot Tubs and Spas
Are you looking for a hot tub that fits in your small yard but large enough to comfortably fit 4-5 adults? People all over the world shop for spas of this size. My family is no exception. With a family of four and smaller yard, we want a spa that provides all the impressive elements found in some of the larger hot tubs, but in a smaller footprint, while accommodating all of us comfortably.
Seating 4-5 adults, the all-new J-425™ hot tub is perfect for families and couples alike, and they take up less space than the mega spas. So when Jacuzzi designed a new entry to join the hot tubs and spas of the luxury J-400™ Designer Collection, we created a rock star that would stand out from the rest. Here are three notable features of the new Jacuzzi® J-425 hot tub: more
J-415 Features a Lower Profile Than Most Home Spas
If you’re a young couple just starting out, or empty-nesters who are active and want to take care of your health and well being, the new Jacuzzi® J-415™ 2-3 person spa is an excellent choice.
Compared to other home spas, the J-415 offers the advantage of a lower height that facilitates entry and exit – something both the young and the elderly can appreciate. The J-415’s compact footprint also means it’s a good fit for condo patios and smaller yards, and quite easy to deliver and set up.
One feature that we all love about the J-415 home spa is its fresh take on the classic lounge seat. You feel relaxed and comfortable sitting in the lounge without water. But when it’s filled with warm water, the jets are going, your head is cradled by the pillow headrest, and you have air control at your fingertips, the J-415’s lounge truly takes away every trace of tension, from your back to your feet.
When you submerge in a hot tub, you need the jets to soothe the right muscles, the right way. Being able to adjust jets accordingly is crucial for optimum hydrotherapy. This is the standard by which physical therapy and athletic hydrotherapy systems are judged.
“I’ve had the pleasure of trying out this new tub, and it is awesome”
“Great therapy jets, and all the power you would ever need with the 3 jet pumps”
These are all comments left on our Facebook page regarding the all new Jacuzzi J-495™ spa. This new hot tub is big, versatile and powerful. Learn more about the power of the J-495™ hot tub:
“The J-495™ is our largest Jacuzzi® Hot Tub model with plenty of open seating to move around freely and comfortably. Accommodating up to nine adults, the J-495™ hot tub is perfect for families and friends. With sixty two PowerPro® jets, each spa seat allows every person to enjoy a complete massage experience. My favorite seat is the PowerPro® FX 10 therapy seat, which targets the neck, back, calves, wrists and feet” states Allison Casteel, Jacuzzi Hot Tubs Assistant Product Manager.
You can adjust and direct individual jets, controlling the volume of water and the direction it flows. Deliver a targeted vigorous massage exactly where there’s a stubborn knot in your back. You can also adjust the amount of air introduced to the jets by turning the air control located on the top of the shell near every seat: you won’t believe what a difference this can make, feeling more or less air swirling through the jet flow! Penetrating, powerful jet massage all the way to a tingling spritz – the J-495™ hot tub allows for more massage customization than any other hot tub of its kind. Request a quote now.

New for 2012, the CLEARRAY water purification system is standard on all models. If you have an older hot tub but want the newest technology in the water purification category, you’ll want to purchase the CLEARRAY aftermarket kit. Retrofittable to 2006 models, the CLEARRAY system uses UV-C technology to neutralize waterborne pathogens, rendering them useless. CLEARRAY will also reduce the amount of sanitizer you use in your hot tub, providing you with clean, fresh clear water. Use in conjunction with ProClear Mineral Cartridge for the cleanest, softest water possible. No more drying out, no more red-eye. Ask your dealer about installation and be on your way to clean, fresh, clear water. Visit your local dealer.
*Our laboratory testing has shown that CLEARRAY can reduce your sanitizer usage up to 50%. Always refer to your state or local government agency standards and regulations on how to maintain your water chemistry.
