The Jacuzzi Brothers Strike Gold

While bathing in hot water has been practiced throughout history, the electric hot tub did not enter human imagination until the mid 20th century. The Jacuzzi brothers immigrated from Italy to the United States. They made their living by engineering and manufacturing aircraft machinery. In 1948, one of the seven brothers used his mechanical expertise to design and craft a bathtub jet with the intention of alleviating his son’s chronic pain. This invention paved the way for the spa industry, and the hot tub was developed soon after.

Benefits of Hot Tubs

Most people know that hot tubs can relieve muscle tension. But did you know it can also lower blood sugar, help you recover from a cold, and lead to glowing skin? According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, consistent hot tub therapy may reduce blood sugar levels in persons with Type 2 Diabetes. Participants spent one half hour sitting in a hot tub, six days a week, for a total of three weeks. At the completion of the study, the subjects saw a significant reduction in insulin levels.

If you have a head cold and are experiencing sinus tension due to a stuffy nose, a few minutes in a hot tub may help get you back to your normal, mucus free life. Breathing in the steam of the hot tub helps clear sinuses, and the hot water will help you sweat out toxins.

For youthful looking skin, as well, soaking in a hot tub has huge benefits! Sitting in hot water increases circulation and blood flow.
