Hot tub water therapy has been used to alleviate pain and soothe sore and tired muscles for decades. There was a resurgence of water cure in Europe, The United Kingdom, and The United States during the 19 th century. The water cure as it was commonly known is a term for some therapies, namely; hydropathy, which we now refer to as hydrotherapy.
Warm water therapy was enjoyed and used for medicinal purposes by the Greeks and ancient Romans. It is interesting to note that the origin of the word ‘spa’ dates back to ancient Rome when Roman soldiers returned from the battle lines weary and wounded. The hot spring water helped to reduce pain and relax their tired and sore muscles. The Roman army proceeded to build baths around natural hot water springs. The sought after baths known as “sanus per aquam” of which the word spa is an acronym, means “health from water.”
