Maybe you are on the fence as to whether your new outdoor living space that includes an inground swimming pool should include a hot tub.  Hot tubs can be situated in a variety of ways:  Raised, connected, separate, oblong, square, included with swim resistance jets, varied benches and seats, varied heights and variety of massage nozzles, etc. etc. This article which was originally posted by Livestrong, however, focuses on the health and relaxation benefits of having a hot tub in which to soak.  

Here is an excerpt from the post:


A Jacuzzi is more than a luxurious accessory for your home. According to the medical website, sitting in a Jacuzzi for a period of time has a number of benefits, both physical and mental. In fact, Jacuzzis can be used to help people with osteoporosis, as the buoyancy obtained in a Jacuzzi, along with light exercise performed underwater, can increase mobility and strength. Make certain to follow all cautions, as high water temperatures can pose health risks for certain individuals.

Reduce Stress

A Jacuzzi can be a good place in which to relax with family and friends. You can spend time together sipping a drink or simply having a chat. The bubbling of the Jacuzzi is particularly soothing and will help you relax not only mentally but also physically. You can use your time in a Jacuzzi to get a reflexology massage by placing your feet directly in front of the water jets. Your feet contain thousands of nerve endings, and their stimulation can improve your overall well-being and mood.
