There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Working together, they create a totally relaxing hydro massage experience. The heat in a hot tub raises your body temperature, increasing circulation. The buoyancy of the hot tub reduces your body weight by 90%, relieving pressure on muscles and joints with a relaxing sensation of weightlessness. Through relaxing massage, our customers have reported that they experience the following benefits:
- Relief of tension in muscles and joints
- Temporary relief of aches and pains
- Decreased anxiety and stress
- Total, full-body relaxation
Spending time in a hot tub before going to bed can lead to a deeper and more peaceful sleep. The National Sleep Foundation found that about 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, like insomnia, more than one night a week. Lack of sleep can leave you feeling nervous, groggy and depressed or cause erratic mood swings. Because sleep researchers believe that insomnia can be traced to hectic, stressful lifestyles, relaxing in a spa regularly can help.
According to a study in the scientific journal Sleep, a drop in body temperature can also aid in easing the body into a relaxing and sound sleep. By taking a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about 90 minutes before attempting to sleep, your body temperature can drop to enable a better nights sleep naturally without the grogginess sometimes caused by prescription remedies.

If you are one of the 46 million Americans affected by arthritis, soaking in your Hot Spring® spa can help ease your pain. Joint inflammation from arthritis causes swelling, pain and stiffness, often resulting in the loss of joint movement or function. Immersion in warm water produces hydrostatic pressure on the body that results in reduced joint inflammation and increased mobility*. Spas give you the soothing warm water and buoyancy needed to release tension and improve your quality of life.
For even more relief, use the Arthritis Foundation’s hot tub tips to gently exercise and practice flexibility as you soak.
The use of hot water or heat is recommended for many people with arthritis but not all. Always consult your physician.

The Benefits of the Ozone Sanitation
Ozone is triatomic oxygen created naturally by Earth's atmosphere and mimicked by engineers to be used as a powerful disinfectant.
An ozone sanitation system uses of one nature's most powerful oxidizers for simple and effective disinfection use in walk-in tubs, bathtubs, whirlpools, and hot tubs.
How Ozone Is Used in Water Walk-In Tubs
It is used to clean out the water lines connecting the whirlpool jets together after use for a consistently hygienic bathing experience. With the ozone self-cleaning system your tub will require very little upkeep, cost-effective for an odorless clean.
The Advantages of Ozone Sanitation Systems
Here are the benefits of the ozone sanitation systems in walk-in tubs and why they're so effective:
An ozone system disinfects the tub from bacteria, viruses, magnesium, iron, hydrogen sulfide, human fluids, and any other organics.
Ozone reacts with water within a matter of minutes and does not form harmful byproducts in the process.
Ozone is two-hundred times more effective than chlorine.
Whether you are in the middle of a warm bath or scrubbing your walk-in bathtub with cold water, ozone is just as effective in either temperature.
Ozone disinfects the mold and mildew that purge out of water jets when they have not been used for a while.
Ozone meets FDA and EPA standards as a disinfectant.
