Exploration into the benefits of water therapy is being conducted everyday in the US. Generally, experts in alternative medicine recommend water therapy like you would get with ThermoSpas to treat sleep disorders, muscle and joint pain, chronic stress, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as those considered more serious such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and type 2 diabetes. The benefits of water therapy continue to be explored, but hot tubs have already become a common feature of modern American homes.
Warm water has been used to treat a variety of ailments over the years. From the times of ancient Greek, Egypt and Asian civilisations it has played an important role in the healing of bone injuries, joint, and muscle pain, chronic insomnia and severe anxiety. Even in these times, there were different views on the power of water. While the Greeks used warm water for medicinal purposes, regularly soaking in heated salt baths, the Chinese used it to clear the mind, believing that clarity of the mind lead to the clarity of actions.
Nowadays, despite Jacuzzi remaining a popular spa brand, there are a range of different brands to choose from. In fact, they are not even the most suitable brand for water therapy. Spa companies, such as ThermoSpas, provide spas that allow the user to control temperature, pressure and even the direction of the water jets in individual seating stations. ThermoSpas hot tubs also come in larger sizes that allow for swimming, enabling room for more vigorous exercises and extensive muscle movement, in addition to standard swim strokes.
The use of warm water therapy, also know as hydrotherapy or hydropathy, in medicine was revived during the 19th century.
Dr Sir John Floyer was at the centre of this revival. In the early 18th century, it was he who noticed the affects of warm water on the Litchfield peasantry. In 1702, Dr Floyer’s book on the use of hydrotherapy in relation to medicinal cures was published, and later on, in 1738, was drawn on by Dr. J.S. Hahn.
Dr James Currie of Liverpool, driven by these early publications, began to use water therapy in 1797 as a treatment for fever-related illnesses. The consumption of water was also recommended by Professor E.F.C. Oertel of Anspach as a way to treat all illnesses. In 1840, water therapy was introduced by Captain R.T. Claridge as a therapeutic measure when its benefits were noticed on wounded soldiers. Another important name in hydrotherapy history is James Manby Gully, the man who later on developed the first water therapy clinic in Malvern, Worcestershire. Many famous people participated in the well known Malvern ‘water cure’, including Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, and Lord Tennyson.
In 1844, the first American Spa community was opened in New York, with the opening of several others following soon after. The one thing they had in common was the use of hydrotherapy in their treatments. Apart from this, their methods, treatments and facilities varied. At this stage both warm and cold water therapy was used, but as the popularity for hydrotherapy grew, so did the preference for warm hydrotherapy. It was seen that warm water therapy helped to relieve muscle and joint pain, reduce stress, improve energy levels and relieve symptoms of chronic insomnia. However, it wasn’t until the 1960’s during the hot tub boom, that water therapy became truly well known.
The Jacuzzi brothers, in response to the arthritis of a family member, designed, built, and then installed a pump in their family’s tub in 1956. This became the first hot tub spa after Jacuzzi patented the idea, once the benefits of the spa had been observed. By 1968 Rob Jacuzzi had created a whole new industry, designing and advertising the world’s first whirlpool bath.
Today, more than ever, the industry continues to grow. The hot tub industry envisions spas becoming a permanent fixture in homes everywhere within the next ten years, and ThermoSpas is dedicated to making it affordable for everyone to buy their very own luxurious hot tub spa.

Hot tubs and spas are often seen as luxury items or something to indulge in. What you may not realize is that hot tubs can effect much more than just your social life. Warm Water Therapy can actually improve overall health and healing.
Our bodies make adjustments when we are immersed in water. These changes are similar to those that occur when we exercise. The changes include increased circulation, more efficient breathing and improvements in mood.
It is well known that when a person’s body is immersed in water, the water’s pressure affects almost every part of the body. When immersed, the body must adjust to the pressure from the surrounding warm water. The result is greater cardiac output and a lower resting pulse rate.
Also, the water pressure and hot temperature help the body release chemicals (hormones) that help us relax and improve our mood.
Here are several ways in which warm-water-therapy improves healing:
- Increased circulation – when muscles and body are warmed, blood supply increases to the muscles. More blood flow means more nutrients to help the cells. The increased blood flow also helps remove the pain-causing chemicals that build up in tissues. The result – quicker recovery from strains, and muscle related pain.
- Water exerts pressure on our bodies when immersed – this pressure will help reduce swelling
- Water bouyancy – immersion reduces the amount of weight we bear on our joints due to gravity. This is why so many ThermoSpas customers lover exercising in their swim spa or exercise spa. Exercises that feel painful on land are now easier in water.
- Arthritis and pain releif – immersion in warm water tends to increase joint mobility, joint stiffness, and increase flexibility and range of motion.
