Whilst many people with health problems or conditions are content to leave their treatment up to the health professionals, there are possibly an equal number who would also like to take charge of their options. It’s all about reaching a compromise so that you compliment one with the other.

Arthritis

Nobody would argue with the fact that severe arthritis needs some form of medical intervention. The symptoms are not going to disappear overnight without some kind of medication or anti-inflammatory, but over the years it has become more widely recognised that using a hot tub can improve the condition in many cases. Arthritis sufferers have discovered that using a hot tub several times a week can help to reduce the pain and swelling in the joints and help with mobility too, and the beauty of this kind of therapy is that it won’t interfere with any prescribed medication.

For anyone that is at risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, a hot tub could be particularly beneficial. Used on a regular basis, a hot tub could reduce that risk however it’s always best to consult your GP first when trying out any new therapy.

Stress & Anxiety

Hot tubs are a must for those suffering from stress or anxiety. There is no better way to relax and take stock of life and the effects can be enhanced by adding a suitable aromatherapy product to the water to increase these benefits. It often means drugs can be avoided and surely any natural form of treatment is the better option to go for.

Of course hot tubs were once thought of as just toys for those with plenty of money, opinions however have changed over the years as more and more benefits have been discovered.
