We are starting to think about maybe getting a spa. Even just with a little looking around at what is out there, I am already overwhelmed. I would love advice about what kind of jets might be best to help ease some of my back and neck pain issues. I have severe degenerative disc disease in my neck and lower back and this triggers constant muscle spasms in my neck, upper back between my shoulder blades, and my lower back. I'd like a spa that can really do some deep tissue massage in these areas. There seems to be a huge variety of different types of jets placed in differing configurations in the spas out there. Does anyone have any idea what really seems to work?
I keep thinking about the corner jetted tub in my master bathroom. When we bought our house 6 years ago I was so excited about that jetted tub. I thought it was really going to be heaven to sit and relax in that tub and I couldn't wait to try it out for the first time! Well, that tub ended up being quite the disappointment. It only has 2 jets and really all those jets do it swirl the water around a little bit. They do nothing more than just what a hot bath already does to relieve muscle pain.
So I am concerned about finding myself in a similar situation with a spa purchase. I'm afraid that through my ignorance I will buy a spa that looks like its really going to be blissful, but then once I have it home I discover that it really doesn't do what I expected it would do. Can anyone offer some advice on what sorts of features I should be looking for in a spa?
