If you’re considering the purchase of a hot tub, and you’re looking for some really good reasons as to why to do it, listen up.
If you are an average American with all of our average problems and some not so average, you could cope with them on a steady basis with just the time spent in a hot tub. That just sounds too easy, doesn’t it? Well, it actually is that easy. No matter what you are facing during your day; corporate takeovers, the PTA, way too much Math homework, you can benefit from a few minutes a day in a hot tub.
Hot tubs have always been used for relaxing, and it has always been rumored to have some kind of medicinal properties. These miraculous findings date back as far as the Ancient Egyptians. We have proof that the Roman Empire encouraged the use of its public bathhouses, in much the same way. So how does someone in today’s American world benefit from the age-old idea of sitting in warm water for a few minutes every day, and how does that work in our favor?
More than 70% of Americans believe that they have an overabundance of stress in their lives and even more than that complain of some kind of physical pain that is with them on a regular basis. If they were all to spend up to 30 minutes a day, up to their necks in hot water, like in a hot tub, the benefits of that time in the hot tub would do more for them than any other remedy.
Most Americans are under the belief that if they have an ache or pain, there is a medication that will take it away for them. What’s wrong with that thinking? All you would need to do is a little research on the percentage of Americans who have become addicted to pain medication to understand what’s wrong with that thinking. The thing is this; taking medication is not a horrible thing and there are instances when medication is the only option. The point is, maybe, if before reaching for a pill, we spent the time it will take to sit in a hot tub and possibly reach the same conclusion and outcome. Is it because we are lazy?
I don’t know for sure, but I do know that there are so many ailments that can be addressed by the simple use of a hot tub that it should be at least, given a shot. Not only could a hot tub soak heal aches and pains, but maybe the continued exercise could bring about real healing. When we take a pill, our symptoms seem to go away, but they only return once the drugs have worn off. How beneficial could it be for all of us that instead of popping a pill, we sat in some hot water and healed the way the Ancient Egyptians and Romans did?
It sounds too simple to some, but I really think it’s worth the chance.
