Hot Tub Helps Sick Child

Leukemia Treatment Side Effects Lessened by Hot Tub

hot tub helps ill child ease pain of Leukemia treatment

Thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Charlie Wanzek of North Dakota is getting some help for his aching joints and muscles.

Charlie has Leukemia. One of the side effects of his treatment is aches and pains in both his joints and his muscles. Fortunately soaking in a hot tub really helps ease the pain.

“I am very, very thankful. I mean who doesn’t want a hot tub and who doesn’t like hot tubs,” said Charlie Wanzek.  

The hot tub health therapy was recommended by his doctor a couple of years ago. Charlie asked for the spa to help his condition, but also so he could enjoy it with his friends.

Fortunately for him, the North Dakota Make-a-Wish Foundation was able to grant his wish.

We are very happy for Charlie and his family that he has been given this gift that will help him manage his condition. We know first hand about the therapeutic benefits of hot water therapy. Soaking in a hot tub has many health benefits for many illnesses. But there are health advantages even if you don’t have a serious illness like Charlie.

Are you a weekend warrior type? In Santa Cruz we see so many people on surfboards on the weekends enjoying themselves. That is great, of course, but if you only do that on the weekends, it can leave you feeling like…well, like the wave crashed on you! Soaking in a spa can help relax those muscles so you won’t feel as sore the next day.

Do you have a stressful job? Enjoy an evening (or morning) soak in your hot tub to de-stress. Your body will thank you. And your boss and co-workers just might as well.

Do you suffer from joint pain because of injury or arthritis? Hot tubs help with that pain as well.

And of course there are the social aspects of enjoying a hot tub, and as Charlie says, “who doesn’t like a hot tub.”

Are you ready to soak away your stress and aches and pains? Give us a call and we’ll set your Santa Cruz County home up with a spa that meets your goals, and your budget.
