At the end of a hard day, what could be more relaxing than a long, hot soak in the bath? How about a long, hot soak in your very own whirlpool bath?
Upgrading from a regular bathtub to a whirlpool bath may seem an extravagant luxury but it is now easier and more affordable than you'd think.
A whirlpool bath can bring numerous health benefits, including easing muscle tension and improving blood circulation throughout the body. Since being invented by the Jacuzzi brothers in the 1950s, the technology has really come a long way and they certainly aren’t just a luxury for the rich and famous anymore. In fact, with discounted prices for whirlpool baths, it's now even easier to upgrade.
How a whirlpool bath works
A whirlpool bath is actually quite simple but very effective. A system of pumps sucks your bath water into a system of jets, which then powerfully propel the water back into the bath, mixing it with air. This produces a wonderful bubbling effect that helps soothe the body and mind.
Jets, integrated into the design of a whirlpool bath, create an experience like no other
The benefits of a whirlpool bath
Ever since the earliest times, man has understood the benefits of warm, bubbling water that is known as “hydrotherapy”. Indeed, whole “spa” towns (like Bath or Harrogate) have been built in places where natural hot springs exist. But why does hydrotherapy make us feel so good?
One of the most obvious benefits of a whirlpool bath is the way in which it relaxes you, removing stress, anxiety and allowing you to clear your mind from the pressures of the modern world. It can also help if you suffer from sleepless nights.
The NHS recommends that you take a relaxing warm bath an hour before bedtime. After stepping out, your body will start cooling down which will help send you to sleep.

Increasing blood circulation
The action of the jets combined with the warmth of the water will help to stimulate veins and arteries, meaning your circulation will improve.
This is great for your overall wellbeing and can also help with ailments such as joint pain or muscle strain.
The water pressure will create a higher level of oxygen intake than normal baths, which will help keep your skin looking healthy. Plus the toxins in your body will be drawn to the surface by the warm water and pulled away. All our whirlpool baths contain the latest drainage systems, which rapidly flush away waste water, leaving your bath clean and ready for use.
Of course, you don’t have to use your whirlpool bath every day. It can be saved as a little luxury, or switched on when guests come to stay.
However little or often you choose to use it, you have to say, it’s an impressive piece of kit to have at your disposal.
