About Jacuzzi Ontario

Wellness

As has been clearly demonstrated by a multitude of studies, that Jacuzzi hot tubs can be used as an effective tool for treatment of many disorders that are highly prevalent in our society today. The use of water as a healing property extends back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans, both civilizations developing and using public baths not only for cleanliness but also for treatment of wounds and illnesses. These findings still ring true today.

The first pump used for therapeutic purposes was designed by the Jacuzzi brothers for the treatment of a young family member who was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis. The Jacuzzi brothers, already experts in hydraulics, designed an aerating pump that could be submerged in a bathtub to provide pain-relieving hydrotherapy treatment.

In 1968, third-generation family member Roy Jacuzzi took the portable hydrotherapy pump to the next level. Having worked in the family business since he was a teenager, Roy Jacuzzi created and marketed the world’s first integrated whirlpool bath, the “Roman.”

The key to the Roman was the incorporation of innovative therapy jets into the sides of the tub. These innovative and patented jets produced a unique 50/50 air-to-water ratio. The Jacuzzi brand uses this same patented air-to-water ratio jets in today’s hot tub designs to provide a therapeutic spa experience.

 

The various research and studies indicate that Jacuzzis can be a very versatile and natural solution in the prevention and a treatment of the dangerous trends to the personal wellness trends of today.

Stress can be prevented and managed naturally using warm water therapy

The annual Gallup survey report (2007) has shown that stress has become more prevalent in North America than ever before: “more than 3 out of 4 Americans say they sometimes experience stress in their daily life, including roughly 4 out of 10 who experience it frequently.”

A study by San Diego State University has determined that stress is considered a probable catalyst for a number of other medical issues including anxiety, nausea, depression, sleeplessness and headaches. Both these studies have also indicated that teens and adults alike are experiencing high levels of stress like never before, and have become susceptible to a multitude of symptoms and disorders.

How a hot tub can help with disturbed sleep patterns

A study conducted by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention has indicated a growing trend in disturbed sleep patterns in North America. The study has confirmed that many people are sleeping less and the sleep they are getting isn’t as effective as it could be. They report that at least 70 million American suffer from chronic sleep conditions, and many more suffer from occasional sleeplessness.

Furthermore, BBC reports that a study from the University of Surrey has determined that poor or disturbed sleep patterns, if untreated, can have a serious negative impact on overall health. This study has indicated that heart disease, diabetes, obesity and poor brain function are some of the most serious health effects. Those who received ten hours of sleep every night were far better protected against illness than those who only received six.

Hot tubs help with Arthritis and Joint Pain

According to the Arthritis Society of Canada, arthritis is the third most common chronic condition reported by adults in Canada, and the single most common chronic condition in Canadian women. Caused by a number of factors, swelling and rubbing in the joints is extremely painful. The study also reports that a significant increase in the number of arthritis sufferers will occur as our aging population grows from 4.6 million in 2011 to an estimated 7.5 million individuals over the age of 65 by 2036.

The same study has indicated that arthritis and joint pain can lead to other serious health problems including poor mental health (increased mood disorders and anxiety), an increase in stress as well as other chronic conditions. Many of these individuals also report more hospital visits, lessened ability to participate in activities or work, and suffer from significant pain.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (D.O.M.S.)

According to Dr. Cynthia Labella, Associate Professor in pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, as reported by ABC News, kids are becoming increasingly competitive as athletes, spending more time on one sport. According to a study from the Government of Canada, almost 50% of students today participate in sports activities. According to the study, approximately 1 in 4 families have a child that plays soccer regularly.

Although adults are less likely to play in organized sport, Statistics Canada reports that on average, adults experience light exercise for about 4 hours a day, and more moderate or heavy exercise for approximately 20-35 minutes a day.

Ultimately, everyone young and old will experience muscle aches and pains throughout their lives. Massage therapy can be costly, time consuming, and difficult to access. According to a study performed through the University of Alabama and published in The Journal of Rheumatology, over the counter pharmaceuticals are becoming increasingly popular in young and old as a means of managing the pain of sore muscles.

A number of studies have been performed measuring the impact of hydrotherapy on muscle strength, soreness and recovery after exercise. According to studies performed at Gannon University and the University of Pittsburgh, “During whirlpool therapy, heating and cooling of tissues occurs through conduction. Warm and cold whirlpools [are] especially useful to decrease swelling, muscle spasm, and pain.” This whole-body immersion method was especially effective in preventing ‘Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness’ – the pain you feel hours or days after exercise.

How exactly can hydrotherapy in a Jacuzzi help with relieving the symptoms of D.O.M.S.?

Studies from The University of Western Australia explain that “Hydrostatic pressure” is likely to increase your blood flow, thereby carrying more oxygen to and removing waste products from muscles more quickly and efficiently. This increase in blood flow decreases recovery time by ridding the muscles of lactic acid build up and other wastes that accumulate during exercise which make your muscles feel sore.

The best method of treatment is to adjust the temperature of the Jacuzzi hot tub to just above body temperature. The gentle massage from high-volume, low-density hydrotherapy jets will also increase blood flow (cause hydrostatic pressure) to the painful area, relax spasms, and loosen tight muscles. The arrangement and placement of the hydrotherapy jets is also important to ensure that specific muscle groups are targeted and treated with the right amount of water flow.

Findings that a Jacuzzi can naturally help alleviate muscle pain and speed up recovery time has become of great interest to many professional and amateur sports organizations and athletes as Jacuzzi hot tubs are becoming more and more common in many training centres. These organizations and athletes are benefiting from the significant advantages of a non-pharmaceutical solution to decreasing recovery time by quickly and naturally eliminating lactic acid in muscles.

The advantages of natural recovery from a Jacuzzi can also be very effective for those undergoing physical or physiotherapy.

Conclusively, hydrotherapy in a Jacuzzi can naturally decrease existing pain and prevent future pain after exercise, and speed up recovery time.

Warm water therapy to help manage diabetes

Exercise has been proven to improve the health of those suffering from type one and two diabetes. In general, improved circulation and weight loss have led to improvements. There have been studies conducted that show that immersion in a Jacuzzi can lead to similar benefits.

How can a hot tub help people suffering from diabetes?

A study performed at the McKee Medical Centre in Colorado and published in the New England Journal of Medicine describes the improvements in blood sugar levels and in weight over three weeks of hydrotherapy: “After 10 days, one patient reduced his dose of insulin by 18 percent to prevent hypoglycemic reactions. During the three-week period, the patients' weight decreased by a mean of 1.7±2.7 kg. Their mean fasting plasma glucose level decreased from 182±37 mg per deciliter to 159±42 mg per deciliter, and their mean glycosylated hemoglobin levels decreased from 11.3±3.1 percent to 10.3±2.6 percent.”

Can a hot tub help reduce Fibromyalgia pain naturally?

According to the Mayo Clinic, “fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.”

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that "the prevalence of fibromyalgia is about 2%, affecting an estimated 5.0 million adults in 2005", and that the disorder is more common in women than men.
