Including a spa in the construction of your swimming pool is a big decision.  Aside from the extra construction costs associated with building a spa, monthly heating bills should be factored into your decision.  However, the benefits of spa ownership can oftentimes greatly outweigh the added expense.

These benefits include:

  1. Relaxing the muscle joints, which may cause pain during simple daily tasks, allowing patients to feel more comfortable at home and outdoors, thus benefiting the 1 in 3 Americans suffering from Arthritis
  2. Alleviating insomnia – a 50 minute soak in 103 degree water 90 minutes before bedtime is a natural and effective way to induce sleep without the side effects of commercial sleep aids
  3. A positive effect on patients with Type 2 Diabetes. A Study at the McKee Medical Center showed that patients who spent 30 minutes per day in a hot tub reported a 13% decrease in blood sugar levels, improved sleep, and a higher sense of well-being.  Even if you do not suffer from one of these ailments, a hot tub is a natural and successful in stress relief, blood pressure, headaches, and the acceleration of the healing process.
