Date:9/25/2007

WALLINGFORD, Conn., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoSpas, the country's largest hot tub retailer, announced that it is in search of 12 chronically ill children to give specially-designed therapeutic hot tubs to in 2008. Through its expanded Seasons of Giving program, the company will donate 12 ThermoSpas hot tubs -- one a month -- to sick children who will benefit from warm water therapy. ThermoSpas encourages parents, teachers and friends of eligible children to apply for these kids today at http://www.thermospas.com.

ThermoSpas launched its hot tub donation program, Seasons of Giving, in 2002. To date, 16 recipients -- with illnesses ranging from Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy to Fibromyalgia and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis -- have benefited from donated ThermoSpas. Each of these children's parents reports that daily soaking in the hot tub has significantly improved their child's quality of life.

"Our motto has always been 'We Turn Water Into Therapy' and our Seasons of Giving hot tub donation program really makes this saying a reality," states Andrew Tournas, President of ThermoSpas. "When I hear about a child who could never move on his own, but now can walk because he received a ThermoSpa, I only wish we could help more kids. I am thrilled that we are able to triple our amount of donations in 2008."

Each of the 2008 Seasons of Giving recipients will receive a ThermoSpas Triton Elite hot tub (retail value $12,890) which has 46 jets for therapeutic massage and many ergonomic safety features recognized by the Arthritis Foundation with the "Ease of Use" Commendation. Not only will the ThermoSpas Triton Elite provide these children with a chance to move and play more freely on their own, but it will also offer proven therapy:

-- Muscle relaxation, which can reduce muscle spasms

-- Decreased gravity, which increases breath control

-- Improved trunk control, balance and coordination

-- Increased mobility and range of motion

-- Increased strength and endurance

-- Improved length and quality of sleep

According to one parent -- Tom Quigg, whose son Sean has Muscular Dystrophy and received a ThermoSpa in 2003 -- the benefits of the donation were more than physical: "The hot tub has helped Sean in every way, shape and form. The warm water makes it easier for him to do his stretches and relieves the pain in his joints. Most of all, the ThermoSpa provides him with the freedom to move, swim and play. The freedom is the greatest gift to a child in a wheelchair."

To apply, please visit http://www.thermospas.com. The deadline is February 29, 2008.
