  • Why did you choose to install it in this location? We just finished construction of a brand new deck and our pictures were taken literally as it was just completed. I designed the deck to create a flowing design with 3 unique zones. The grilling/dining area. The lower level with integrated bench & granite end tables for the fire pit, and the spa area – just off the master bedroom. The spa area is private and has views of the entire deck plus the woods and pond below. Plus, our J-345 is only 6 feet from our sliding doorwall, which is going to be a welcome distance in cold & snowy Michigan winters!
  • What benefits do you receive from hot tub ownership? Our home has become our oasis…we find that in tough economic times, we can actually enjoy a vacation everyday right in our own backyard. Owning a spa is something we used to seek out in resorts, now we have our own to enjoy every day.
  • How do you use your hot tub the most? i.e. entertaining, arthritis therapy, relaxing etc. We truly enjoy the togetherness ithe spa brings our family, I bet you’ld probably could get a different answer from each member. My 10 year old daughter loves to play with her friends in it. My 18 year old daughter likes to hangout and converse with friends. My wife enjoys the relaxation and calm it brings her totally hectic life. And for me, I love to be in the outdoors, see the trees and sunset through the rising mist. Plus, we all love to soak in the cool glow of the ambient lights under the stars.
  • Why did you choose to purchase a Jacuzzi brand hot tub versus another brand? Overall best value. Smart size for family for four and fit well for specific location. The fit, finish and materials were superior to other brands explored. The quality of jets were super. And also a big factor…the styling. Beautiful aesthetics, sculpted design, attractive integrated lighting and truly comfortable seating. We shopped extensively online and in-stores and probably have every spa DVD produced! Lastly, the Jacuzzi reputation for quality (we have a Jacuzzi bath in home) made our decision easy.

American Heart Month Inspires Everyday Changes

Hot Tub Hydrotherapy Can Be a Step on the Path to Wellbeing

JHT Feb Blog1 1024x683 American Heart Month Inspires Everyday Changes
At Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, we see a connection between making good choices for the sake of your heart health and the positive benefits of hot tubs. Experts tell us that heart disease is preventable and controllable. Eating a healthy diet, getting your blood pressure checked, keeping your weight in a healthy range, and exercising are all recommended, along with no smoking and limiting the use of alcohol.

But where do you start, and how do you stay motivated along the way? This is where hot tub hydrotherapy comes in.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says taking small steps on the path to better heart health is the way to go. Here’s a comparison of what the CDC recommends, and how Jacuzzi Hot Tubs hydrotherapy can support your efforts.

“Don’t become overwhelmed.”
Jacuzzi Tip: Hot tub hydrotherapy can relax your mind and body after a stressful day, renew your energy, and improve your mood. It’s easier to resist the urge to calm the nerves with “stress” eating, and to take a walk after dinner, when you’ve had some time to unwind in your hot tub.

“Don’t go it alone.”
Jacuzzi Tip: The CDC says “The journey is more fun when you have company,” and we agree. Sharing hot tub time with family and friends helps you connect with those who provide support for (and a pleasant break from) your efforts to build healthy habits.

“Don’t get discouraged.”
Jacuzzi Tip: It’s going to take some time to reach your goals for a healthier heart, and we all know how hard it is to stay motivated when you’re feeling tired and sluggish. A hydrotherapeutic massage has been shown to boost circulation and promote a good night’s sleep, leaving you better prepared to face the challenges of the day.

“Reward yourself.”
Jacuzzi Tip: Having fun decreases stress, which has been cited as a contributing factor in heart disease. Kick back in your backyard hot tub with someone you love on Valentine’s Day, for example, and you’ll probably find yourself laughing and talking more easily than you would in a crowded restaurant.

Why not honor American Heart Month by supporting a healthier way of life for you and your family?

Stay Loose: Hot Tub Massage and Chronic Lower Back Pain

How Hydrotherapy Can Help

J245 Dad Pillow 300x200 Stay Loose: Hot Tub Massage and Chronic Lower Back Pain

Anyone suffer from lower back pain out there? How do you manage lower back pain? Does your hot tub help with the pain?

Here are some comments from our customers:

  • “Oh yes it does!!! Powerful jets massage my whole back, the heat soothes sore muscles. Our Jacuzzi is wonderful”
  • “New Jacuzzi owners and bought it because of my chronic back problems…it has helped.”
  • “its a blessing- with or without back troubles.great to de-stress, relax & unwind.”

According to survey results released in 2012 by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)1 nearly two-thirds of Americans experience low back at some point in their lives.

Anyone who owns a Jacuzzi® hot tub knows that the warm-water therapy feels incredibly soothing on tender or tense back muscles, and it can also be an effective way to gain some control over lower back pain. Hydrotherapy revs up circulation to soothe muscles and relieve pain symptoms faster. It also promotes spine flexibility; stiffness of the spine, from sitting too much, for example, is often identified as a cause of lower back pain.

Our research convinced us that a hydrotherapeutic massage from hot tub jets may be a good tactic for overcoming lower back pain:

  • A study comparing hydrotherapy and land-based exercise for lower back pain stated that both are helpful, but “hydrotherapy seems to be better for spinal flexibility.” The Journal of Musculoskeletal Research, Vol. 13, Issue 04, Dec. 2010
  • Applied heat expands blood vessels, improves circulation, helps to relax muscles and reduce pain, according to an article about hydrotherapy and pain relief2 on The American Cancer Society’s site. “Warm water in the form of a bath, massaging water jets, or hot tub also provides relaxation and stress relief,” it says, and… “An analysis of studies done on hydrotherapy for lower back pain suggested that it might be helpful, although further studies are needed.”
  • Other studies have also concluded that while more research is needed, “hydrotherapy currently remains an attractive treatment modality for low back pain to improve aerobic conditioning and initiate spinal stabilizing efforts.”

The APTA recommends learning strategies for preventing and relieving back pain (72 percent of those surveyed use pain medication to relieve their symptoms). Jacuzzi hot tub hydrotherapy encourages the body to use its own responses to handle back pain. With a Jacuzzi hot tub in your backyard, you can fight chronic pain with regular hydrotherapy sessions, and feel better naturally.

Got Stress? Get a Hot Tub.

Here’s the Breakdown on the Benefits of Jacuzzi® Hydrotherapy

Jacuzzi Hot Tub Infographic2 Got Stress? Get a Hot Tub.

Add this Infographic to your site:

It may be comforting to know that you’re not the only one who worries…about money (75% of us stress over money)…and work (70%)…and relationships (58%). You get the picture. You’re also not alone in being subject to the negative effects of stress, which include:

  • Having trouble falling asleep and waking up at night.
  • Feeling sluggish and less alert during the day.
  • Being “wired” by the body’s production of adrenaline, which gets you ready for action. Since you can’t do anything about that adrenaline rush most of the time (squeezing the steering wheel tighter when stuck in traffic doesn’t count), your body pays the price. Blood vessels get constricted and circulation slows down, which leads to health problems.

All it takes is a quick look at the chart to see how a Jacuzzi hot tub helps you manage stress. The benefits are wide ranging, and include a few that aren’t shown on the chart. For example, sharing time in a hot tub can promote better communication and closer relationships. Spending time outdoors in your hot tub can make you feel more connected to the natural rhythm of the days and seasons, and less of a slave to your crowded schedule.

Studies have shown that hydrotherapy helps combat stress. To discover why Jacuzzi hydrotherapy works best, contact your local Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer.

J-470™ Hot Tub Plays a Role in Backyard Home Improvement Show

Watch DIY Network’s Sweat Equity TV Show Dec. 26th

Sweat Equity1 1024x553 J 470™ Hot Tub Plays a Role in Backyard Home Improvement ShowSweat Equity is one of our favorite home improvement shows because it features real people working with believable budgets. In the episode titled, “The Party Yard,” Jane and Jared, a couple in Minneapolis wants to bring their backyard up to par with others in the neighborhood, and create a space where they can entertain.

The worst feature of the backyard was probably the second-story deck that had no connection to the almost-barren backyard. The area under the deck was used for storage, which looked pretty messy.

Amy Matthews, the Sweat Equity host, said the goal was to create “an outdoor living space as opposed to just a deck.” New steps and a railing in a wood-alternative material were built to extend from deck to yard. In the big backyard, a landscape architect added affordable plants – the trees along the perimeter will look great as they grow – and the chain-link dog run was replaced with new fencing. The small concrete patio was replaced with a patio made of natural-looking pavers and a fire pit.

270181 561171643899696 842947740 n 1 J 470™ Hot Tub Plays a Role in Backyard Home Improvement ShowBut back to that unsightly “storage area” under the deck…With help from Twin City Jacuzzi, a beautiful new Jacuzzi® J-470 hot tub was delivered and set up in the space. The hot tub is a perfect fit, and the deck above (with the addition of a nice underdeck treatment) provides privacy and protection from the elements.

A real estate agent asked to “look at the true benefits to the resale value of the home,” agreed that a six-person hot tub added value. Homeowner Jane especially likes the speaker system in the J-470 and the 39 jets with colored lights. She said she couldn’t wait to have people over for a party. The J-470 was declared a “treat with a cherry on top” in this home improvement!

The Party Yard episode, which first aired in November, is scheduled again to be shown on December 26. Check your local listings and pick up some home improvement tips from Sweat Equity and Jacuzzi.


Behind The Scenes:

Jacuzzi was graciously invited into the home of a local southern California family to capture raw footage featuring a J-480 hot tub installation. Like many families, busy schedules and a flurry of activities tend to dictate the daily pace of hustle and bustle. At this active home, the hot tub is viewed as a place where the family gathers and stays connected. A small area in back of the house was designated as the go to spot to unplug and unwind…as a family.

A Jacuzzi hot tub can make any outdoor space suddenly look like a relaxing oasis.

Holiday Travel Stretches

Prevent Stiffness and Relieve Sore Muscles Caused by Travel

Bri3 214x300 Holiday Travel StretchesMany of us are looking forward to spending time with family during the holiday this week, but are dreading the long hours of travel to get to our destination. Riding in a car for hours or sitting in a cramped seat on an airplane can cause muscle tightness, pain, fatigue and less than festive moods. Here at Jacuzzi, we pride ourselves on helping people unwind and find balance and relaxation, whether through hydrotherapy, stretching or any other form of relief.

Here are some effective stretches for holiday travelers:

LEGS – There usually isn’t room to actually stretch out when you’re in flight or on the road, but you can increase the blood flow to your legs while seated. Keeping your feet flat on the floor, press against the outsides of your knees with your hands. At the same time, push your legs out against your hands for five seconds. The resistance revs up circulation in your lower extremities. Try the same move, with your hands inside your knees, pressing your legs inward to resist.

NECK – The neck and shoulders really feel the pain from sitting too long. You’ll get the benefits from this stretch instantly. First, sit up straight. Clasp your hands behind your head. Slowly, let your palms press your head toward your thighs, pointing chin to chest. Use your palms to gently stretch your head away from your shoulder until you feel a good stretch. Hold for 20-30 seconds and slowly lift your head, unclasping your hands. Be careful not to go too far; it’s better to repeat the stretch, gently, a couple of times.

ARMS – You have more freedom to move in an automobile, but on a crowded flight, it can be tough to spread your wings and “fly.” A nice way to stretch your arms without taking up space: 1. Raise your right hand, then bend at the elbow until your hand is behind your back. From here, try lifting your elbow back and higher, keeping your shoulder blade sliding down your back. Repeat on the left side.

The trick to staying comfortable while traveling and arriving without wobbly legs and neck pain is allowing your body’s muscles to move and increase circulation throughout. Once you’ve safely arrived at your destination, take a walk and a stretch break to help you stay alert and prevent muscle stiffness. And of course, if you can – take a nice soak in a hot tub!
