Hot Tub Therapy

When I was nine years old, I started having swelling of my fists, knees and feet. This would happen when the weather changed, or I over did it with physical activity. My mother tried everything she could but decided it was best to bring me to see a doctor and eventually a specialist. I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). The swelling and pain my knees was unbearable some days. My mother and I tried every pain medication under the sun to try and relieve some of the pain. Some worked, but the side effects were almost as bad as the JRA. Then we heard of hot water therapy.

My family started looking and found hot tubs in Modesto for sale. We purchased a hot tub and for 15 minutes a day, I was able to enjoy the soothing sensation of heat, jets and blowers. The hot tub therapy was an easy regimented to keep up because of the relaxing nature and instant benefits which helped me over the years. Part of dealing with the effects of arthritis and other chronic issues is working out. This can cause flare ups, especially in those old “football injuries” as my dad used to call them. But it is the hot tub therapy which can ease someone out of the uncomfortable aches while providing additional benefits such as a personal space for “Me Time”.

In today’s hectic world, it is important to take some time for yourself. Often, people do not have a corner that is just for them. Having hot tub therapy time for yourself can make it so you can contemplate your thoughts without distractions. There is a true value for that money spent.

Often, when we purchase an item that we think we want, it only serves a purpose in our lives for a short time. It very often becomes just another “thing” we have laying around the house. But a hot tub is not going to be one of those unused items.

It can be of a great benefit both mentally and physically and for these reasons you are going to want to keep using it (and often finding excuses to use it). Having a little party or get together can be made even better when people stop over for a quick dip in the awesome hot tub.

To this day, I continue to use hot tub therapy in my regular routine, and I am so thankful I was able to use this type of therapy all these years.
