Anyone who chooses a spa or hot tub and has health issues should check with their physician first. For example, if you have a history of high blood pressure, heart disease, or other ailments, it's recommended that you double check with your doctor before you buy a hot tub. If you are going to exercise vigorously in your spa, the Arthritis Foundation and others recommend that you reduce the temperature at least to 88 degrees or so--the water should not feel too hot. Also, the Foundation suggests if you heat your spa between 98 degrees and 104 degrees, you should only soak about 10 to fifteen minutes in the soothing water. In fact, most manufacturers don't recommend heating their hot tubs to more than 104 degrees.
