Any type of long hot soak is good for aching muscles or stiff joints, but when you add in the effect of massage, the benefits go through the roof. Modern whirlpool baths generally use a combination of adjustable air and water jets to provide all-over massage. You can choose the pressure and angle of the jets to target problem areas for deep tissue massage, or simply allow the bubbles to gently wash over your whole body. People who suffer from chronic back pain or arthritis and are looking for relief, active athletes looking to recover after a hard training session, and anyone who needs a way to unwind at the end of the day will find that the massaging action of a whirlpool bath can significantly improve their quality of life. Simple immersion in hot water gives your body a cardiovascular workout, and the added stimulation of massage multiplies the positive effects. The combination of hot water and massage causes your blood vessels to dilate, improving circulation. Better circulation is known to speed healing and assist in the removal of toxins from the body. The result is improved energy levels, clear skin, and a deep sense of refreshment.
How can you make your bathing more luxurious with Whirlpool?
Studies have shown that spending time in a whirlpool bath can lower anxiety and increase your overall sense of wellbeing, and aside from the health benefits, you can’t deny that spending time in a whirlpool bath just feels good. Most of us are dealing with high levels of stress in our lives, and spending time in a hot tub or whirlpool baths is one of the healthiest and most effective stress relievers out there. Spa trips are sold as special occasions, reserved for birthdays and anniversaries, but why should you limit your enjoyment to once or twice a year? Installing a whirlpool in your bathroom brings the best of the spa right into your home. For maximum effect, most models make use of both air and water jets. Air jets use warm air to create soothing bubbles, and water jets shoot out gusts of water at various speeds to offer a relaxing hydro massage. The jets are often adjustable, which means that you can target a particular area of the body and are simple to operate from controls either on or near the bath. With a large variety of models now at our on-line store, there is a range of different jet configurations so you can choose one that best suits you.
Standard size whirlpool baths are about 2.5 ft wide by 5 ft long, the same size as a standard bathtub, so will fit conveniently into the space where your bath already stands. If you do have a little more space available, you can install a larger version which can often accommodate more than one person. Whirlpool baths are now much more hygienic as the design makes them easy to clean and maintain. They are made with a variety of materials, the most common being fiberglass, acrylic and cast iron. Fiberglass can offer the best value for money, and acrylic and cast iron are generally very durable and easy to clean
