Video: The Science Behind the Soak - a Coping Tool for Today's Changing World
Date:10/17/2008

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- For centuries civilizations have flocked to warm bubbly waters to soothe their aching muscles. The steamy soak has evolved into the high tech home spas of today that can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $40,000. But in this time of economic uncertainty, is a backyard water oasis simply a luxury or could it be a coping necessity? Is there any science behind the soak?

The Mayo Clinic Proceedings and Comprehensive Aquatic Therapy studies claimed that being immersed in warm water causes the arteries and veins to dilate and carry more blood, allowing the heart to work more efficiently. Blood circulation "increases by nearly 121%" while blood pressure decreases: the results of an intense workout while doing nothing but relaxing.

So if simply sitting in water is good for you, how much can an underwater workout accomplish? Scientific research has shown that water workouts promote cardiovascular health, weight management, prenatal health and, according to the National Sleep Foundation, "are a natural, safe way to enhance deep sleep and sleep-related problems."

In addition, water exercise is seen as an effective way to relieve arthritis pain and stiffness without harming the joints. And a study in the Clinical Journal of Pain advises that aquatic exercise prevents and reduces back pain.

Is it any wonder that the word s.p.a. derives from the Latin Solus Per Aqua or "health by water?"

One company leads the pack when it comes to water wellness in your backyard. Dimension One Spas -- known as the Rolls Royce of hot tubs and an industry innovator with 30 patents in 30 years -- recently introduced the elegant Amore Bay home spa with hydronomic underwater loungers that use strategically placed jets for underwater acupressure massage.

D1 also debuted the world's first underwater gym -- Aquatic Fitness Systems -- that allows users to safely swim, walk, run, stretch, row, strength train, relax and heal. The company is working with the University of Nevada's School of Medicine and its water fitness expert, Mary Sanders, Ph.D., to create a safe and effective workout video for the AFS. http://www.AquaticFitnessSystems.com

And both products are "green" additions to your home with energy efficient heaters and pumps -- resulting in very low heating costs -- exteriors made of maintenance-free, 100 percent recycled plastic and water cleaned with earth-friendly ozone.
