Portable Spas Portland - Portable Hot Tubs Can Help Ease Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes, But Men Who Suffer from the Disease are Unaware of the Benefits of Hot Water Therapy

Oregon Hot Tub, a Hot Spring Spas dealer with stores in Portland, Beaverton, Bend, Clackamas and Vancouver, WA is supporting National Men’s Health Awareness Month by providing free spa test soaks in all their 5 locations.

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.”

“According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the United States or 8.3% of the population - have diabetes,” says Sue Rogers, owner of Oregon Hot Tub. “There are several different types of diabetes, but Type 2 is the most common form and accounts for upwards of 90% of cases. Type 2 diabetes is more common in older people, especially in those that are overweight. In addition, some estimates say over 11.2% of men 20 or older have the disease.”

According to Dave Doornink, marketing manager, “diabetes essentially affects the body’s ability to turn food into energy for your body. Although there is no cure for diabetes, the disease can be managed and treated.”

“A study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that soaking in a hot tub can help ease symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes,” said Doornink. “Persons with this disease who spent half an hour daily in a hot tub for three weeks reduced their blood sugar levels up to 13%. As the hot tub’s heat dilates blood vessels, blood flow improves and the body makes better use of insulin, the hormone that converts blood sugar into energy.”

“We think Men’s Health Month is the perfect time to help educate the public on how effective warm water hydrotherapy can be in relieving the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. That’s why Oregon Hot Tub will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations during the entire month,” continued Doornink. “That’s why we are encouraging anyone suffering from Type 2 diabetes to call us ahead of time to schedule their free 30-minute soak so they can feel the benefits for themselves.”
