Not only will you
feel more like yourself when you address your stress, but you may also see
significant improvements in your overall wellness. Regular stress relief can
help you feel more vibrant and energetic. Being relaxed can also improve heart
health and high blood pressure. Stress relief has also been shown to boost the
body’s immune system and lower the risk for getting a cold.
A spa offers a
reprieve from the stressful conditions of life. In your hot tub, you don’t have
to worry about calls, appointments, or deadlines; there’s nothing heavy to lift
or wrestle with; and the only thing on your mind is how good the warm water and

proven physical and mental benefits. According to the University of
Minnesota, massage provokes a relaxation response in the body’s nervous system.
Massage also has positive effects on the body’s soft tissue and improves blood
and lymph circulation, which allows oxygen to spread more easily through the

water and massage, an Italian study in the journal Minerva
Cardioangiologica found hydromassage to be effective treatment for venous
deficiencies due to the water’s hydrostatic pressure, thermal, and chemical
properties. Jets in higher quality hot tubs are often positioned to reach the
same pressure points typically used in reflexology and acupressure, mimicking
the pulsation action and deep-kneading techniques used by trained masseuses to
achieve stress and tension relief.
There’s a reason
people have enjoyed hot springs for centuries and why modern hot tubs are
popular across the world today. Soaking in warm water, massaged by soothing
jets, feels wonderful, revitalizes the body, and brings people together in
comfort. Regular sessions of hydrotherapy, either with a professional or in
your own home, can help you conquer the daily stresses of being a responsible
adult. Being free of major stress can help you be the best version of yourself
and reach that next level of happiness.
We believe in the healing power of spas. Warm water, buoyancy, and
massaging jets soothe the soul, ease the body, and ignite the spirit. We design

for their owners.
