Hot Tub “Stocking Stuffers” Include Wireless Music Systems, Remote Controls, & Spa Lights

October 29, 2007 — The holiday season is quickly approaching, and with it a familiar dilemma when it comes to holiday gifts: Is it better to give or to receive?

You want to give the perfect gift to the people who matter most in your life—your family. Yet you feel a little selfish for wanting something special for yourself. Why not give a gift that does both—a hot tub.

“You’re giving your family a gift that everyone will enjoy for years, and you’re also receiving the benefits of total relaxation, hydromassage and family togetherness,” said Mike Dunn, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Hot Spring® Spas, the world’s No. 1-selling brand of portable spas.

“Imagine having a hot tub in the privacy of your own back yard, always warm and ready for you at the end of a long day.”

Hot Spring offers spas in a wide range of models and prices, including the Aria™, spa. The Aria spa comfortably seats up to five adults. Thirty-five powerful hot tub jets provide maximum hydromassage to relax and soothe tired muscles.

This hot tub model features the exclusive Moto-Massage® DX jet, which sweeps two powerful streams of water up and down your back. The Aria spa also comes with a factory-installed music system that includes CD and MP3 players, plus an AM/FM radio that all play through two rotating pop-up speakers and a sound-enhancing subwoofer. The elegant BellaFontana® water feature, enhanced by the rich colors of the Luminescence® Lighting system, adds visual enjoyment to the Aria spa experience.

The hot tub is surrounded by an exclusive Everwood® spa cabinet (a simulated wood siding that has the beauty of natural redwood without the maintenance), and features an advanced fiber-optic control panel preprogrammed for easy operation.

Last-minute shoppers will appreciate knowing that a Hot Spring spa is easy to install. It doesn’t require special permits, construction or plumbing. Once a spa is delivered, just place it on a level patio or reinforced level deck, fill it with water, connect it to a dedicated 115- or 230-volt electrical source (depending on spa model), and it’s ready to use. It is energy-efficient, completely self-contained and virtually maintenance-free.

Hot Spring even has a full line of “stocking stuffers” to complement the Aria and the rest of the Hot Spring spa line. They include the SpAudioCast™ and Moonlight™ spa music systems; retractable spa cover lifters and cover stands; IQ 2020® remote control; hot tub lighting systems; AutoFresh® automated water-care system; plus hot tub accessories, including privacy panels, spa steps, umbrellas, handrails, towel trees, and spa pillows.

“A spa can improve the quality of your life by providing a quiet refuge from the complexities of everyday living, and a way to reconnect with family and friends,” Dunn said.

“Think of it as having a year-round vacation in your own back yard. During the winter and cooler months, relaxing in the warm water of a hot tub can help relieve —cabin fever’ and provide an invigorating way to enjoy the outdoors.”

A Hot Spring spa also is a great way to reduce stress. Unless you have a full-time masseuse on hand, a hot tub is a perfect way to unwind after a hard day of work, a fitness workout, or a full day of parenting. The massaging action of a spa–created by sending a combination of warm water and air through jet nozzles–results in an “energized” stream of water that loosens knots of tension and provides many other therapeutic benefits, such as relaxing tired and aching muscles, improving circulation, inducing sleep, and increasing mental relaxation and acuity.
