Why buy a hot tub? As more and more people in the UK are classing a hot tub as a much-needed addition to their home…what actually is all the fuss about?

Before we get into it, let’s look at what hydrotherapy actually is. (Encyclopedia, 2019) Defines hydrotherapy, or water therapy as ‘the use of water (hot, cold, steam or ice) to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being. You may be surprised to know that hydrotherapy is not a new concept, people have been harnessing the benefits of hydrotherapy even before recorded history began. Used for things such as cleansing, relaxation and therapy for arthritis pain and injuries.

It is well known that the history of medicine involves a whole load of trial and error, with remedies appearing, disappearing and then even reappearing. I’m sure everyone can remember something which was once deemed to be highly beneficial for our health, which is now regarded as hazardous. However, throughout the ages, the use of hydrotherapy has maintained its credibility within the medical industry as a means of treating a variety of health problems.
