Spas are coveted for many reasons. They help us relax. They are also valued for improving relationships — including being touted as the perfect spot for a special date. Not to mention that they are a great place for the family to gather.
But did you know that they are of more benefit than good plain fun?
Scientific studies by the National Aquatics and Sports Medicine Institute (located at Washington State University), for example, show remarkable health benefits associated with warm water hydrotherapy in hot tubs.
At Best Hot tubs, we specialize in Bullfrog Spas. These models are renowned for their patented JetPak System of spa jets that are particularly helpful in hydrotherapy.
Here are 6 ways that Bullfrog Spa therapy can help improve health.*
