Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Capital Hot Tubs, the Fairfax Virginia Hot Spring Spas dealer (Formerly named Hot Spring Spa of Washington) is supporting National Men’s Health Awareness Month by providing free test soaks at both of their hot tub stores.
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.”
The Mayo Clinic states that fibromyalgia is musculoskeletal pain that is spread throughout the body causing fatigue, mood, sleep and memory problems. Research indicates that the disease affects the way the brain processes pain signals, causing pain sensations to feel worse. There is no cure for this disorder; however there are home remedies to reduce the resulting symptoms, including hot tub therapy.
“Fibromyalgia Network advises sufferers to spend time relaxing in a hot tub every day,” said Joe Mahoney, president of Capital Hot Tub. “Hot water therapy is known to be one of the most effective, natural pain reducers. The reason for that is endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, are released during a soak in a portable spa. Also, the buoyancy you experience while immersed in a hot tub causes your organs to weigh less, reducing the stress on your muscles. Just spending 15 minutes each day in a hot tub can make a world of difference,” continued Mahoney.
“There is a misconception that Fibromyalgia is a women’s disease, however, according to some estimates 10% or as many as 500,000 men suffer from Fibromyalgia,” said Patty Mahoney, co-owner. “Men’s Health Month is a great opportunity to educate the public on how a hot tub can ease pain and tightness in muscles and joints. That’s why Capital Hot Tubs decided to offer free hot tub test soaks to those who want to see the benefits of hydrotherapy for themselves. Test soaks are being offered at the company’s Fairfax, VA and Clarksburg, MD locations.”
