There are few items in the home that can provide more relaxation and muscle soothing than a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath. These wonderful tubs with jets make for a romantic evening with your significant other or a bit of "me time" that we all need occasionally. Using a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath is not difficult, however there are a few things that you should take into consideration when preparing a Jacuzzi bath.
Filling the Bath
When filling your Jacuzzi whirlpool bath, don't use very hot water. The jets and moving water make it seem warmer than it is when it is still. So if you usually take steaming hot baths, start a little cooler and remember that you can always add more hot if you need it. Plug the drain and let the water run until it is over the jets. Do not turn the jets on until the water covers them completely.
Taking a Jacuzzi Bath
After the tub is filled and the jets are on, ease into the water and position your aching muscles in front of the jets which surround the tub. Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs allow you to adjust the force of the jets, so pick your pleasure. If you enjoy aromatherapy you can add a small amount of essential oil such as lavender or rose oil to the water or use scented candles around the tub to improve your relaxing bath. Many people enjoy sipping a glass of wine while in the Jacuzzi or reading a good book. Make sure to have a big fluffy towel nearby when you get out.
Before using a Jacuzzi bath be sure that you don't have any medical conditions which may cause problems by using the Jacuzzi. Many whirlpool manufacturers advise that children and the elderly don't use Jacuzzis. Don't add bubbles unless you want to be mopping up the bathroom for days. Always be very careful entering and exiting the tub. Your muscles become weak and relaxed while in the tub and you may experience dizziness upon standing. Also, if you drank any alcohol while in the Jacuzzi you may experience the effects more when you exit the bath.
