to the Mental Health Association, currently more than 50% of all
Americans suffer adverse health effects due to stress. Certainly, on a
more obvious level, stress diminishes the quality of life by reducing
feelings of contentment and accomplishment, and relationships are often
Simpsons Spas understands that eliminating stress
is rarely practical or feasible, but there are many ways to reduce its
impact. Consider as many stress relief options as possible. Examples

Water is as life sustaining as the air we
breathe. Water therapies, particularly those involving warm water
combined with massage, have proven effective throughout the centuries.
People enjoyed mineral and thermal water baths as early as 500 B.C. in
Greece. The ancient Romans were so convinced of the therapeutic value of
thermal water that for some 600 years their medical treatments were
almost exclusively centred on the Baths, which were also the communal
meeting places of the time. Spas and bathhouses have long been popular
in Egypt, Finland, Germany, Spain and Turkey; Japanese teak wooden tubs
are usually cited as the first at-home hot tubs.
Today, spa and hot tub water therapies are highly
valued for their relaxing, rejuvenating, and naturally rehabilitative
qualities, and Spas remain a favourite social setting.
Trainers, physical therapists, and other health
care professionals recommend soaking in the warm water of a spa to
alleviate the symptoms of muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries,
and to accelerate the healing process.
Warm water physiotherapy is one of the safest
treatments available. The flow of warm water eases muscle tension, and
relieves pressure on surrounding nerves, joints, and blood vessels.
Movement becomes easier, which is especially important for those
suffering from arthritis and back pain.
Hot Tub jets may be used to target specific
pressure points for deep muscle massage. The benefits of massaging the
hands and feet go beyond comforting relief for just those areas. For
centuries we have found that specific points on patients' feet and hands
affect healing in other parts of the body.
Exercising in tepid water is a wonderful way to
improve flexibility and strength, build muscle endurance and balance,
combat the aging process, and boost your cardiovascular system. The warm
water of a Hot Tubs also greatly reduces stress on joints and stimulates
the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller.
Even non-exercisers or patients recovering from
accidents or injuries can benefit from performing gentle, easy-flowing
movements in the water of a Hot Tub. By working with the water's natural
resistance, even a mild water workout can tone muscles and boost
