    How To Reduce Stress With Hydrotherapy

    Do you often fantasize about what life would be like totally stress-free. Unfortunately, with everything we all have going on, living stress-free 24/7 just isn’t that realistic. In today’s hyper-paced world, as many as 70% of working adults suffer from chronic stress-related conditions including anxiety and insomnia. So if the world around us isn’t going to slow down, how can we find the time to keep up without getting run down?

    Hot Tub Stress Relief!

    Studies have shown that adding a 15 minute soak in a hot tub can have huge payoffs in your daily outlook and overall well-being.

    This little escape for yourself pays for itself in:

    • Increased productivity
    • Improved mood
    • Better sleep

     

    This is because of the natural endorphins released in your body after a short stint in warm water, mixed with the therapeutic benefits of jet propulsion.

    Find your daily paradise, and tune everything else out…even for a just 15 minutes.

    Endorphins interact directly with our brain’s receptors, creating a sense of heightened euphoria. The noticeable impacts include:

    • Reducing our perception of pain and stress
    • Helping our overall levels of happiness
    • Improving the functioning of our immune system

    Let’s just put it this way, if endorphins could be bottled and sold at your local drug store, there would be a Black Friday rush to rip them off the shelves.

    So the next time you feel stress creeping up on you, think about the amazing benefits that endorphins can have for your body and how a hot tub can help you reach that state. There’s no better feeling than the the feeling of stress melting away from your shoulders as you reach a serene and calm mindset.

    Featuring: Beachcomber’s Floating Puck Dispenser

    Remembering to add chemicals to your hot tub water on a daily basis can be difficult. Although seemingly trivial, a daily dose of chlorine, bromine or whatever system you use is incredibly important for keeping your water clean and clear.

    A Hot Tub Water Care Solution

    Beachcomber’s extremely simple solution to this problem has revolutionized the mechanics of water care. With our Floating Puck Dispenser, all you need to do is add chemicals to the container and let the dispenser do the rest.

    Here’s a quick step-by-step guide for using it:

    1. Simply unscrew (counter clockwise) the bottom barrel and load chemical pucks.
    2. Once you have screwed the bottom barrel back on, you then just have to tighten the locking nut.
    3. Adjust the barrel so it’s barely open (2-3 open slots) then adjust accordingly. (The larger the opening the more chlorine/bromine will be dispensed.)

    This Floating Puck Dispenser is only for water care products that come in the form of pucks (only Bromine and Chlorine).

  • Hydrotherapy’s Positive Benefits for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

    Hydrotherapy’s Positive Benefits for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

    Fibromyalgia is a serious medical condition that often goes undiagnosed because it doesn’t appear in normal blood work. The pain inflicted by Fibromyalgia is widespread and dramatically affects your quality of life. For many people it feels like a really bad case of the flu without the fever.

    Beachcomber Hot Tub Health Benefits

    Here are some symptomatic elements felt by people suffering from Fibromyalgia:

     

    • Short-term memory loss
      • The main reason memory is affected is because of the severe headaches they’re experiencing

     

    • Restless leg syndrome
      • This will often effect your sleeping habits, further complicating the exhaustion aspect of this

     

    Hydrotherapy is a proven method of relieving many of these symptoms. Soaking in a hot tub, combined with lots of hydration (8 – 8oz glasses of water a day) significantly reduces the aches and pains caused by the symptoms of fibromyalgia. A simple 10-minute session in a small hot tub will lower pain levels to a point where routine activities are manageable.  If able, try doing a simple workout routine while in the hot tub. This will help strengthen your body and help manage the symptoms.

     

    Beachcomber Hot Tip: Ask your doctor is using a hot tub to cure your symptoms can be submitted to your insurance company. Also, ask your accountant about how you can use your hot tub as a tax right-off if you’re using it as a way to relieve pain.

    • Foaming Hot Tub

      Foaming Hot Tub

      While foam is quite common in hot tubs that are used a great deal, having an excess amount of it is something that should be dealt with. Foam is created by dissolved solids in your hot tub water. These solids will include laundry detergent, deodorant, lotions, makeup, etc. Utilizing too much water care products will also cause your water to foam up.

      While there are several ways to prevent solids from arriving in your hot tub, the easiest way is to simply shower before entering the water. Showering will flush all of the chemicals and waste off your skin and block it from getting into your hot tub water.

      Removing Hot Tub Foam

      Once your hot tub starts foaming, here are some steps to take to clear up the water:

      1. Test your water. This is an important guiding step to take. Make sure all of your sanitizers, alkalinity and pH are balanced. Also, double-check your TDS levels. If one of these levels are unbalanced or your TDS levels are extremely high, it could be time for you to drain and re-fill your tub.
      1. Scoop out the foam. Most occurrences of excess foaming can be resolved by simply removing the foam and assuring that your chemical levels are correct.
      1. Replace or thoroughly clean your filter. This will prevent the water from creating more foam.
      1. Shock your tub with your sanitizer system. We suggest doing it with Chlorine, however people have seen success from doing it with non-chlorine sanitizers. While shocking, run your jets on high and have your cover half open to vent out the gases.
      2. Using “Foam Free” will help suppress some of the foam.

       

      We typically recommend Hot Tubs are drained and filled approximately every 3-4 months and this may be a sign you are nearing this interval.  You can also help prevent hot tub foam by routinely using an oxidizer after each use and utilizing a floating oil absorber, such as a “Hydro Mop” and adding an enzyme product such as “Purezyme” which naturally breaks down the biofilms which contribute to foam.

      If you have fresh water and are experience foaming, it could be a result of low calcium hardness.  Low calcium levels (which can also damage equipment) will decrease surface tension in the water and allow for excessive suds.  To prevent this issue, take a water sample to your local Beachcomber Hot Tubs dealer to analyze and balance water including calcium hardness level.  If low, use “Protect” calcium increaser.

      Beachcomber Hot Tip: Asking people to restrain from dunking their heads under water is a great way to slow down the increase of dissolved solids. Also, having a Beachcomber Heatshield will help keep natural dissolved solids out of the water, as well as keep your heating costs down.

      • Cardiovascular Benefits of Hot Tubbing

        Cardiovascular Benefits of Hot Tubbing

        Taking some time to consider how to optimize your cardiovascular is important first step when looking at improving your health. Although there are many steps you can take to enhance your overall health, this article explains the specific benefits that bathing in a hot tub has for your cardiovascular health.

        Health Benefits of a Hot Tub

        1. Lowers Your Blood Pressure

        This is one of the most important benefits that soaking in your hot tub can have for your cardiovascular health. Warm blood comes closer to your skin’s surface which lowers your heart rate. It’s important to immerse your body as deep as possible to provide the best possible circulation for your body.

         

        1. Stress Relief

        Stress is a natural reaction inside your body to different environmental and psychological stimuli.  A small amount of stress can help you maintain a healthy nervous system. But if you’re experiencing too much stress, it can cause your blood pressure to rise and result in many debilitating illnesses. The good news is that you can manage and reduce stress with 20-30 minutes of massage and hydrotherapy in a hot tub.

         

        1. Increases your Circulation

        The warm water will raise your body temperature to a point that it makes your blood vessels dilate, therefore improving your circulation. This also helps your blood vessels shed waste and become much healthier.

      • Who is Tethys?

        Who is Tethys?

        You may be wondering who the figure in the Beachcomber logo is? And why this figure is included in our logo?

        The woman’s face in our logo is Tethys, the Greek Titan goddess of primal fresh water. She was the Greek god responsible for nourishing the earth. She was the mother of the rivers, the clouds, and the nymphs of springs, streams, and fountains.

        Beachcomber Hot Tubs Logo Origins

        Being the wife of Okeanos, the fresh water god, and daughter of Gaia, mother earth, Tethys was an important part of Greek mythology. Her name was derived from the Greek word for nurse, and she was considered to be one of the most influential gods in the Greek landscape.

        At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, the influence of Tethys is felt throughout our company. We do our best to spread the word about the nursing and natural healing powers of the hydrotherapy provided by hot tubs. In reality, the therapeutic benefits of a soak in one of our hot tubs is unmatched in the natural world.

        Adding a soak in a Beachcomber hot tub to your daily routine will not only help your body be at its best, it’ll help you live a longer and happier life.
