If you are diabetic, you know that the doctor recommends that you do not take long, hot showers or baths. A Hot Tub or Spa is very therapeutic, but you don't want to cause additional problems while trying to relieve sore muscles or pain. To get the therapeutic benefits from a Hot Tub or Spa, you do not have to have the water temperature over 100 degrees. Most people can get relief from staying in the Spa for 30 minutes at a much lower temperature, around 98 or 99 degrees. Since it is so close to your body temperature you can stay in the Spa longer. The relief will come from the movement of the water as well as relaxing sound of the movement of the water.
Before using a Hot Tub or Spa, please be sure that this is acceptable in your individual case with your primary care doctor
