Reason you are racing: Because I can!

Running history: This will be my first “race” over 5K. My goal is to run at a 7:30 mile pace, with a finishing time of ~1:38.

Now that I have three active kids, a full time job as an assistant professor in a doctoral program and a husband, I am sensitive to the physiological stress that comes with adding a training program to an already busy schedule. I know that for me, using the hot tub is going to give me a regular outlet to take some quiet time for myself.

Hot Tub Therapy Provides Arthritis Relief

Hydrotherapy is Often Recommended to Arthritis Patients

hot tub therapyThose who struggle with arthritis know that even the simplest daily activities can be very painful. Even minor arthritis pain can cause stiff joints and decreased mobility that make buttoning a shirt or starting the car very difficult. Of course there are many assumptions out there about how to lessen the pain of arthritis, but the irrefutable benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy have held true for centuries.

Hydrotherapy is the use of water to relieve physical discomfort with its therapeutic functions varying with temperature. Hot water has long been prescribed for its ability to relieve bodily discomfort, such as muscle soreness, arthritis, and back pain, and is often recommended to expedite recovery from injuries. Researchers also conclude that hydrotherapy facilitates the removal of lactic acid, opens blood vessels for better circulation, aids the flow of endorphins, and relaxes the muscles surrounding arthritic joints.

Healthy Sleep Tips

10 Tips from the National Sleep Foundation to Help You Fall Asleep and Stay Asleep

Did you know the word “insomnia” means “no sleep” in Latin?

As a friend of the National Sleep Foundation on Facebook, I frequently view their posts on sleep-related education and research. Recently, a particular post caught my eye: Healthy Sleep Tips. I, for one, have no trouble falling asleep, but I have a very difficult time staying asleep and feeling refreshed when I wake up. Friends of JacuzziOfficial reported to get an average of 4-6 quality hours of sleep. I typically get four quality hours of sleep a night even though I am in bed for eight hours, my sleep is never deep and continuous. According to the National Sleep Foundation, “throughout adulthood, even as we get older, we need 7-9 hours of sleep.”

For you tired, sleep deprived individuals, I give you the National Sleep Foundation’s Healthy Sleep Tips:

It’s National Golf Month- Don’t Be a Sore Loser or Winner

Hydrotherapy Helps Relieve Muscle and Joint Pain Common to Golfers

Are you aware that August is National Golf Month? I’d like to wish golfers and golf enthusiasts out there Happy National Golf Month!

My son has been home from college the past few weeks for summer break. When he is visiting, we usually make time for a few rounds of golf at a local course as an opportunity to catch up while playing a sport we both enjoy. Last week we played Strawberry Farms Golf Course in Orange County, California. We had a fantastic time on the course as usual, but later in the day and the following morning was different story – at least for my muscles! My back and legs were stiff and sore! I’m not sure when this started to happen (I turned 50 last month), but activities like golf affect me much more than they did in my younger years.

Hot Tub Health Benefits

Hot Tubs Promote Overall Wellness

Hot Tub Hydromassage
We’ve all experienced the soothing effects of sitting in a hot tub, but do we understand what makes it feel so great? Just as the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians believed in the healing power of hydrotherapy, we know that the relaxing heat and jet-driven water does wonders to relieve physical burdens while decreasing stress levels, but how? Here, we will discuss the many benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy, and how they promote the body’s natural healing processes.

1.       Pain Relief: Hydrotherapy is the use of water to relieve physical discomfort, but the temperature of the water used plays an important role in the therapeutic properties of the treatment.  Hot water has long been sought after for its ability to relieve bodily discomfort, such as muscle soreness, arthritis, and back pain, and is often recommended to expedite recovery from injuries. Researchers conclude that hot tub hydrotherapy facilitates the removal of lactic acid, opens blood vessels for better circulation, aids the flow of endorphins, and relaxes the soft tissue surrounding arthritic joints. In combination with heat, factory-built hot tubs with their myriad jets can improve joint and muscular functions by directing hot jet-driven water to specific trouble points or pressure points in the hands and feet.

Outdoor Hot Tubs Promote Quality Family Time

An Outdoor Spa Helps the Family Reconnect

Outdoor hot tubsConsumer 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 Pain Relief

Arthritis Sufferers Use Hot Tub Therapy for Pain Relief

arthritis pain reliefRecently, 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.”
