Hot Water: Therapeutic Benefits of Soaking 

Page 3 of 3

Over the 20 years in business, Rainbow Pools and Spas has settled on one product line: Hot Spring spas. “We are confident with the brand and quality, and they are the most efficient and environmentally friendly spa on the market,” says Olheiser. “Hot Spring has 100 percent no bypass: All water is going through the filter before being returned to the tub. The circulator pump uses less power than a 40-watt bulb. And Hot Spring puts emphasis on the quality and variety of the massaging aspect.” Some other brands offer over a hundred jets, but Olheiser counsels, “when it comes to jets, more being better is not the case. A lot of research has gone into the Hot Spring spas. The jets are designed and positioned very specifically for different parts of the body.” Some units have a lounge chair in which you can recline underwater and receive a full-body jet massage from neck to feet: There are even jets that move up and down your spine.

If you’ve never experienced a hot tub, this winter is a perfect time to be initiated. The Hudson Valley has a number of venues offering a range in services, from a half-hour dunk to a full day or weekend retreat. Some have frequent user clubs, low-cost day passes, or unlimited use with membership (check out YMCAs, universities, and exercise clubs). If you’re thinking about installing a tub at home or workplace (!), you can take a test soak in a Hot Spring tub at Rainbow Pools and Spas, where a private “wet testing” spa awaits you.
