Hot Tub Health Benefits

Hydrotherapy Healing Benefits

  • Hot tubs relax muscles, they can be used before and or after exercise.
  • The massaging action is provided by the circulation of warm water and air bubbles through the numerous jets.
  • Floating in warm water stimulates the release of endorphins, these are the body's natural painkillers.
  • As little as 20 minutes in a warm spa can help to relax tense muscles and relieve the anxiety and stress of a hard day.
  • The heat of the water makes the blood vessels dilate resulting in an increase in blood circulation. As the vessels begin to expand your blood is able to flow far more freely, reducing the strain on your heart.
  • The water provides buoyancy, supporting the body's weight by nearly ninety percent, this can help to relieve the pressure on aching muscles and joints. It can also improve mobility and helps to relieve some of the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.
  • Hot tubs are fun! And that can only be good for you.

Hot Tub Jets

Jets Ratio Importance

Of course, it is pointless in having quality jets if there is insufficient power to provide the jets with hydrotherapy.

Our hot tubs have a ratio of Jets / HP of under 10, for example the Emperor hot tub has 81 jets & 3 x 3HP pumps ( = 9 HP)  so 81/9 = Jets / HP ratio of 9.

This concept of quality provides a powerful relaxing massage experience & the below health beneficial virtues.

Christian’s Story

We delivered one of our Emperor Deluxe hot tubs to a very special family in Byfleet Surrey. Paul & Yvette Rogers are the parents to a very exceptional child, Christian who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the tender age of 18 months.

Paul & Yvette purchased the Emperor as a recommendation to aid with Christians movement whilst commencing on a brave journey to raise £50,000 for fund a lift changing selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) operation which unfortunately is not funded by the NHS.

With fundraising, fantastic support and incredible energy from Paul and Yvette, the target of £50,000 for the operation has been reached and Christian received this life-changing operation on December the 8th 2015.

 ‘We used the hot tub to prepare Christian for the operation and it will play an even more important role in his recovery.’ - Paul Rogers.

In celebration of the health benefits that hot tubs offer, we won the Gold award for the category of ‘Hot Tubs Change Lives’ at the 2016 British Pool & Hot Tub Awards ceremony. This award clearly shows the health benefits that hot tub ownership brings and how they can make an enormous impact

on people’s lives, an area of hot tub benefits which is frequently overshadowed by the social attributes of hot tubs.

Sincere thanks to Paul & Yvette with their input in helping us achieve this achievement. The award was collected by ourselves on behalf of Christian and Paul was kind to send us a picture of Christian with his award.

Since this award, we have won gold in the section hot tubs change lives at the 2017 and 2018 awards.
