Is Your Cell Phone a Pain in the Neck…Literally?

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.

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.

My Dog Sleeps On My Hot Tub Cover

Is It Time to Replace Your Hot Tub Cover?

Actually, it’s my co-worker’s dog, Dusty, that likes to hang out on her hot tub cover. Not because the outdoor temperature is cold (this is Southern California, after all), but because Dusty can look into the kitchen window and the neighbor’s backyard from his perch. It’s probably comfortable, too.

Obviously, if you have a big yellow Lab like that resting on your hot tub cover, it’s going to start to sag a lot sooner than in normally would. Here are the typical reasons why hot tub covers need replacing:

Why Families Love Hot Tubs

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.


10 Minutes to Total Relaxation

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.

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.

Outdoor Hot Tubs Benefit Athletic Training

Incorporate Outdoor Hot Tub Therapy into Recovery Efforts

Once again, Jacuzzi will be present at select Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Health and Fitness Expos across the U.S. Jacuzzi’s booth will feature running and stretching professionals to teach event attendees how to properly stretch, prepare, and recover faster while training for endurance events.

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.
