The Healing Power Of Water: Spa Treatments For Chronic Pain

Living with chronic muscular pain has become a way of life for too many, decreasing their overall quality of life. A home spa is known to help soothe aching muscles and offer relief. But what you may not know is that your home spa can be so much more than hot water with generically placed jet streams and massagers. In fact, your home spa can be designed and customized to meet your specific needs, 

What are the benefits of a spa?

The benefits of warm and hot water therapy are well established. Anciently, hot springs were associated with health and healing, gifts from the gods. Bath houses in Europe were visited to treat ailments such as gout. In fact, a whole town, Bath, was named after the hot waters. In the United States, places like Hot Springs, Arkansas and Ojo Caliente, New Mexico have spas that are built over natural springs and attract tourists from all over the country.

Hydrotherapy boasts the greatest benefit of being 100% all natural treatment. It is known to be effective treatment for digestive issues, muscle pain, and arthritis. Soaking for just 30 minutes a day can have long lasting effects for the physical body, making it easier to fall asleep quickly and to relax more completely. Soaking and relaxing in a home spa can also revitalize the mind and spirit. Inflammation is due constricted blood flow as the body tries to "fix" what has been damaged. This disturbance in equilibrium causes pain and discomfort. Hot water baths increase overall blood flow so that more oxygen reaches the inflamed areas, thereby decreasing inflammation.  

Considering that most pain killers that are used for chronic pain lead to liver or kidney damage because they only mask symptoms instead of healing them, it is definitely worth the investment to purchase a spa for hydrotherapy. Spa treatments can be used indefinitely with extremely low risk of negative effects. Bullfrog spas offer a unique form of treatment with their customization options.

You can design your spa to give you the treatment your body needs. It's not worth the money if your pain is just going to continue. With a customized spa every penny will be worth it.
