Hot tub jets are not just for creating bubbles

Hot tubs have certainly come a long way in both design and technology. I remember when people used to come into the showroom and just wanted to purchase a hot tub to sit in and feel relaxed with the constant jets of water massaging their back. Welcome to the world of change!

Like many things in life, people who purchase a hot tub must make several decisions and that’s why making a purchase from a hot tub dealer rather than just buying online will certainly allow you to get the perfect hot tub which suits your overall needs. A hot tub is an investment and the type of tub should be carefully considered before you sign on the bottom line.

One of those decisions is based on the jets you have within your hot tub. That decision is based on the number and the type of jets. If you are looking to buy a Hot Tub in Norfolk, the team at the Hot Tub and Swim Spa Centre in Norwich will be able to help you.

In our showroom, we stock American Whirlpool, Arctic Spa and Wellis hot tubs. All of these spas are designed, not just to look beautiful, but also to exceed all the norms for high-quality hydro massage and ergonomics.
It’s pretty much the same for all the brands we stock, but if we focus on the Wellis range of hot tubs. Wellis carefully set their jet positions and performance characteristics to suit each particular target muscle group.

The result is a range of hydrotherapy stations that fit a wide range of physiques, provide highly effective hydro massage to all the right places, and are exceptionally pleasant and comfortable places to sit or lay.
Wellis use a number of different sizes of hydro massage therapy jets with a number of different nozzle configurations. This provides for a varied massage experience from light and fast pulsating through to a slower deeper needing effect.

All the jets are also individually adjustable for flow, and some can be tailored for speed and the treatment area too resulting in a number of amazing massage variations, pin pointing different areas of the body as seen below:Hot tub massage points

  1. Expert Massage
    Back massage on advanced level. With the adjustable direction and strength of the jets everyone can customize this massage place, which was developed especially for back massage.
  2. Cool Down Massage
    Sometimes it’s the best just to relax a bit on the edge of the pool after a full body massage or an exhausting exercise in the water
  3. Focus Massage
    The daily tedious work, all-day office activities cause many of us uncomfortable, cramping feeling in our back, around the waist. This massage place focus on the upper body, on this critical area to help you relax, dissolve the accumulated stress at the end of a long day
  4. Intenso Massage
    The most invigorating massage spot. Professional athletes, sport fans and anyone looking for intense hydro massage will enjoy the experience provided by our intenso seat. It concentrates especially on the back and leg muscles.

chronic pain relief with a hot tub

Reducing chronic pain with a Hot Tub

Can a hot tub help with Chronic Pain?

We are certainly not into making medical claims, but it is a known fact that many of our customers will purchase a hot tub to help them reduce chronic pain. You may have arthritis, spine or disc problems or just work in an environment where you have constant muscle ache.

Soaking for just 30 minutes daily in a hot tub can help to improve flexibility and increase blood flow to the body’s extremities. This makes it much easier for the heart to pump blood to deliver the results. How may you ask?

The heated water of a hot tub will relax your muscles. When this happens, it improves the blood flow to the body, which allows oxygen and other nutrients to circulate around your body faster, banishing the painful effects of lactic acid or aching muscles and eases the pain in your joints. Hot tubs have specially designed adjustable warm water jets which will deliver deep tissue hydro-massage to specific points of the body’s muscle-skeletal system.

Wellis brand

Chronic pain reduction with a hot tubOur Wellis brand takes Wellness therapy very seriously.  They constantly research and design technologies that work together in synergy to further enhance the benefits of Hydrotherapy through their products. PULSAR programmable massage is just one example of focusing technology to provide hydrotherapy exactly tailored to everyone’s needs. Pulsar is the exclusive Wellis programmable massage system that lets you choose from up to 9 different massage therapies.

Not only will a session in a hot tub help to reduce pain, it should also give you a really good night’s sleep. Basically, when you leave the hot tub this will trigger a drop in body temperature which releases sleep-inducing endorphin’s and leads to a better night sleep.

Chronic pain reduction with a swimpaThe NHS will sometimes refer people to hydrotherapy as this will support the treatment to reduce pain. The main reason for a hydrotherapy pool is to help with the patients exercise routine.

A swimspa is a perfect solution to exercise and have the benefit of the heated water.

Before making any attempts at pain relief, a proper diagnosis should be made by a healthcare professional if you haven’t already done this!

The two types of pain

Chronic pain is what we have been discussing. This is where the pain is generally constant because of your health. Chronic pain is ongoing and usually lasts longer than six months. The pain signals remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain is linked to conditions including headaches, arthritis, cancer, nerve pain, back pain and fibromyalgia.

Acute pain usually comes on suddenly and is caused by something specific like surgery, broken bones or a sporting injury. Acute pain usually does not last longer than six months. A hot tub is still ideal to help with the reduction of acute pain, but other treatments will help with the rehabilitation process. Seeing a physio or osteopath is often advised but another excellent route would be sports therapy.

The definition of sports therapy is ‘an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.’

I hope that you have enjoyed reading our blog. If you would like to find out more why how a hot tub or swimspa can help with pain relief, give us a call on 01603 860660 or visit our showroom.
