As the New Year begins, we start to focus on being our better selves, whether it’s getting fit, spending more time with family, avoiding technology more, or simply living with less stress. Fortunately, these resolutions all happen to have one common solution: a hot tub.
Hot tubs can do so many things for you physically and mentally. The high levels of heat that you get from a hot tub can help you lower your blood pressure and help you to unwind. All of your stresses from the day, week, month, or even all of 2015 will lightly roll off of your shoulders and into the hot tub when you sit back and relax for a soak.
What could be better than taking all of your stresses away after a long soak in the hot tub?: Using your hot tub to also spend more time with family and friends, and less time on the phone or computer. Being away from technology allows you to immerse yourself not only in conversation, but also in very hot, bubbly water, allowing everyone to decompress at the same time. No stress=more fun for everybody.
Hot tubs are great after a long work out; the first and second days after a hard day at the gym are often when you are the most sore. The buoyancy that hot tubs provide can reduce the stress on your joints, and allow your body to recover while the pressure of your body’s weight lightens. And if just sitting and soaking isn’t enough, hydrotherapy is also a nice way to recover from a tough work out, or if you’re having every-day aches and pains. Hot tub jets can massage your muscles and soothe any pains you have like a real masseuse, and your mind and body will feel better in no time.

Aqua Quip and BECU are teaming up with Habitat for Humanity for a Swim for Charity Event at this year’s Seattle Home Show. Participants can sign up to swim for up to 1 hour in a Hydropool AquaTrainer Swim Spa. Seattle Home Show, BECU and Aqua Quip will make a combined donation of $5/min that each participant is able to swim for Habitat for Humanity. If a participant swims for more than 30 minutes – then the combined donation will be $10/min. Participants are also encouraged to ask family and friends to come down and cheer their swimmer on and sponsor them for an additional donation.
The American Heart Journal has concluded in their studies that warm water hydrotherapy improves quality of life! The circulation of warm water increases heart rate response and decreases stress. These are two important factors in decreasing risk of heart-failure.
As Aqua Quip employees will tell you, our happiest customers are
clearly the ones that use their hot tubs routinely. “You can
tell which customers use their hot tubs daily,” says Lynnwood Store Manager, Jeff Henderson. “Not by the results of their water test, but by their attitude and outlook on life. It’s almost like
they’re glowing when they walk in.”
