Aquatherapy and cedar hot tubs

Aquatherapy and cedar hot tubs

Not only do they look incredible in any space, barrel hot tubs have the added benefit of depth that sets them ahead of other hot tubs, making aquatherapy and cedar hot tubs go hand-in-hand.

Aquatherapy is a great way to reduce the swelling of joints and inflammation, or add motion and physical activity with low impact effects on your body, whether you opt for a deep soak, or making use of the depth that the hot tub provides for aquatherapy exercises. The quiet but impactful jets offer added massage-like qualities that further enhance your experience!

What makes our cedar hot tubs even more beneficial is their ability to go from hot tub to chiller tub at the flip of a switch, with the use of an arctic heat pump. Cold plunge therapy has been used in sports rehabilitation for years, and is the perfect compliment to a heated soak. The mild shock of temperature change works overtime to aid the repair of strained and/or overworked muscles and joints.

Cedar hot tubs are perfect for any back yard, but are also featured in spas, hotels, and sport recovery locations all over the world for their soothing and healing benefits and high quality, low-maintenance, long-lasting design.

Get the best of both worlds in a cedar hot tub that heats AND cools

Maybe you live in a location where it’s not unusual for a day’s temperatures to reach 95-100 degrees in the summer…and even evenings only “dip down” to a (still hot) 80 degree range. In extreme heat cases like that, the water in your hot tub would still heat up… even with the heater turned off! For a good part of the year, a chiller tub would be a wonderful addition to your yard, where you could happily enjoy a refreshing dip in tub with cooler water.

But then, winter arrives, the days and nights get downright cold – and a classic cedar hot tub is the only place you want to be.

But what if your cedar hot tub could do BOTH?!
