It's more than just a Hot tub, its a place to relax and socialise with benefits to your health and well-being
Did you know hot tub therapy could help towards healing qualities, why not look at installing one of our hot tub hoists?
Hot tub play can be therapeutic for children, especially for those with conditions that benefit from the water’s warmth, buoyant support and muscle-building resistance. That includes a range of muscular, skeletal and neurological disorders, from autism and asthma to scoliosis and spinal bifida. Many hospitals and therapy centers include hot tub time in their treatments.
Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hot Tub Therapy.
The water’s buoyancy helps support a broader range of motion for children with joint inflammation and muscle weakness while the water’s resistance helps strengthen muscles. Jet turbulence in the tub can teach better balance, and kids can boost their endurance with aerobic exercises in the water. Take it easy during a flare-up, but otherwise encourage more activity during the session.
Cystic Fibrosis and Asthma and Hot Tub Therapy
The pressure of the water on the chests helps strengthen the diaphragm, leading to more lung
capacity, breath control, and rib mobility. Because chemicals are evaporating from the water
within 18 inches of the surface, children with these problems should spend only about 10
minutes with their face that close, and maybe another 10 minutes waist-deep.
Cerebral Palsy and Hot Tub Therapy
The water’s support helps children stand, walk and keep
better balance. The jets and warm water loosen muscles and ease pain.
Brittle Bones and Hot Tub Therapy
Children whose bones break easily because of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) can exercise more safely in the water. The sessions strengthen their muscles and improve mobility and motor skills.
Scoliosis and Hot Tub Therapy
Buoyancy and resistance in the water strengthen muscles on the weak side of the curved spine and even help improve the body’s alignment.
Autism & Sensory Integration Dysfunction and Hot Tub Therapy
The physical sensation of water on the body helps calm children who have autism. The environment magnifies sounds and sights, including echoes and light reflecting off the water, in ways that can benefit the children.
Spina Bifida and Hot Tub Therapy
Time in the water can help strengthen the upper body of children who suffer from the birth defect that leaves them with improperly formed vertebrae. The condition affects their center of gravity, and the tub sessions can help them learn to orient themselves.
Of course, you don’t have to tell the kids it’s good for them – just let them have fun! It’s just another way your hot tub helps your peace of mind.
