Hot tubs have been around for a long time. They have been used for both relaxation and healing for hundreds of years. They are also used as a way to improve the quality of life of those who suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain. They may be used for hydrotherapy, heat therapy, or simply to enjoy the warmth of the water on a cold day.
