Re: Doctor visit/ moist heat


Marge,
    For the past couple of years both JoAn and I have been moaning bout the
physical labor we do in the nursery come evening. Sometimes we could hardly
move after dinner. It was especially bad in the morning after, rolling out
of bed. This spring instead of trying to find time to go get a massage once
a month or so, sitting around complaining to each other, we purchased a
Jacuzzi therapeutic hot top. Only a two person tub (they call it a 3 person,
but we do not know anyone well enough to invite them to sit nude with us).
Choose Jacuzzi brand for it was the only one that cold give you 50% air with
the water jets. Also the best looking and least costly of the brands we saw
at the dealer. You are correct... moist heat does work. Throw in the jets
massaging your back and feet and you really have something. I like exactly
100 degrees, JoAn likes 98, but we manage to work it out. After a hard day
we go sit in the tub rather than sit and watch TV. Only takes 20 minutes.
