We’ve tried hydrotherapy pools In the past but the logistics around that became difficult so we looked into having our own Spa which we researched thoroughly Amy loves It and the Benefits to Amy are that it relieves pain from muscle spasms, Improves her Circulation, helps maintain a range of motion in her joints, Helps relaxation and most importantly allows her freedom and being able to spend quality time with friends and family in an Activity that can be enjoyed by all.
Amy uses the hot tub 3/4 times a week though it’s used by the family every day and is used by them for relaxation in between caring , Amy’s preferred seat is the loungers as she loves to feel the jets and the heat from the water and being able to float she is certainly more relaxed after using the hot tub I would certainly recommend it for health benefits to Anyone in a similar position it not only benefits Amy’s health but it’s a great social outlet that she wouldn’t otherwise have with friends and family This is Definitely our best purchase in regards to Amy’s health and well-being!
