Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
HotSpring Spas of Music City, Nashville’s exclusive Hot Spring Spas dealer is supporting National Men’s Health Awareness Month by providing free spa test soaks for residents of greater Nashville including Lebanon, Murfreesboro, Brentwood and Franklin, TN.
“Some studies suggest that as many as 25% of American men have high blood pressure,” says Kevin Croteau, vice president of HotSpring Spas of Music City. “High blood pressure (HBP) or hypertension increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. In addition, people often show no symptoms at all when their blood pressure becomes elevated which is why hypertension is referred to as a "silent killer,” continued Croteau.
The American Heart Association estimates high blood pressure affects approximately one in three adults in the United States or 73 million people. American men seem to have consistently high blood pressure, which puts a continuous strain on the heart and blood vessels and increases the risk of damage to the heart and other organs, and increases their risk of heart attack or stroke.
According to Armin Brott, a spokesman for the Men’s Health Network, “The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs, media appearances, and other health education and outreach activities.”
“Many people affected by high blood pressure seek solutions other than or in addition to prescription drugs, one of which is soaking in the warm, soothing water of a hot tub.” said Croteau. “The comforting heat in a portable hot tub causes blood vessels to dilate, which relieves some of the strain on the heart. In addition, soaking in a hot tub also causes the blood to become more oxygenated and circulate more quickly throughout the body much like it does when we exercise. This improves circulation and if done regularly can help contribute to lower blood pressure.”
As a way of educating the public on how effective warm water hydrotherapy can be in helping lower blood pressure, HotSpring Spas of Music City will provide free hot tub test soaks in their store during the entire month of June.
