Definitely helpful. I'm sure that there is a minority that doesn't do well in hot tubs, but for the most part we all do well in a hot soak. Although soaking in a tub with Epsom salt is even better.
I have an infrared sauna. LOVE IT!! I avoid pools and spas that use chlorine. I'd love to find a salt hot tub, or something natural and healthier than chlorine.
How often do you use it?
Not enough couple x a week.
Jamie Enriquez yeah I know! I have the infrared sauna too, but I’m too busy to use it like I should! I love my infrared biomat and use it daily cause I just lay down and relax on it. The benefits are the best for RA!!!
Yep hot water works very well for me! I love hot tubs.
Work well for me
I’ve also heard that you can ask your doctor to write a prescription for it. When a prescription is written it can possibly be a tax write off as a medical expense. I’ve only learned this information through forums so you may want to research a little.
I just received a prescription for a heated pool, does this mean I can write off the purchase all together or just the tax?
Not sure on a heated pool, this is what is stated on Turbo Tax regarding hot tubs...
What about an infrared sauna?
Love my hot tub it helps so so much!!
I love my hot baths!!!
I love my hot tub and I sleep so much better if I get in the hot tub before bed.
I am exactly the same way
Thanks everyone. Is there a difference between a dry, wet or infrared sauna the club I go to has a salt water hot tub and pool
That's awesome about the salt water pool and spa. As for saunas, from all my reading, infrared has the most healthful and healing benefits. It's a dry heat. Wet saunas are prone to building up mold, which itself can cause health issues.
Oh good to know
i hot tub twice a day, everyday. Morning and night.
What about steam baths? There is a place near me and was going to try it.
Without at least 30 minutes in the infrared sauna every morning, I am not able to move at all. It works great for me.
Yep I bought a hot tub and it helps a lot. Especially in winter
Saunas and infrared saunas are best. Hot tubs can help and hinder since they are also full of chemicals. Hot springs would be better.
I heard saunas are better for ra
Has anyone tried Himalayan salt stones heated ?
I use Infrared Biomat daily
Natural hot springs !!! There amazing and reduce inflammation so quickly
Hot tubs are wonderful to relieve RA pain. My only issue is the hot flashes. If that's an issue, keep a wet washcloth in ice water.
Helps me I do both
Yes it helps
Just take care with dehydration (or perhaps I am the only silly person who can over do it ).
