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.

This week , June 11-17, 2012 is the focal point of Men’s Health Month, the special awareness period passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Individual states have proclaimed the week ending on Father’s Day as Men’s Health Week in their respective states.

According to Mangum, “Women are said to make the majority of health care decisions for the family and have a strong interest in the health of their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers. Since women also play a big role in the decision to purchase a hot tub, we encourage them to learn more about the benefits of hydrotherapy in reducing stress and maintaining a sense of well being, during Men’s Health Month.”
