been lookin at those snorkel stoves. uses wood to heat up the tub. it look like a tiny woodstove but is durn near underwater so that water gets nice just from burnin a little wood. got me thinkin.

tubs dont look that hard to build. just need a concaved/convexed set of bits what goes on them awful noisy wood routin deals.
lest of all that what this sales flyer says.

i might make me one. lord knows we got wood for it.

my mrs. is all the time tellin me to go soak my head. so the way i figure it i can soak my tired back while i'm there at that tub.

i got a ice cooler just big enough to keep in the tub for a while. that sounds nice to me now, hot tub and a cold drink. i'd say and a floozie too, but that could get an old fool in trouble.

good luck at looking for one and picking it out.
i want to know what the results are. thats no foolin neither.

Rickster: My Aunt has VERY bad rheumatoid arthritis, and the doctor prescribed water therapy. They bought a spa and she used it for quite a while until things got so bad she couldn't get down the stairs to the basement, where it was. However, up to that point, it did help quite a bit. I built a hot tub at home, and my Dad said it helped his aching hip and back considerably as well.

I can only comment, that since my son has started using "water" therapy he has felt much better, and is getting stronger everyday.

He has a rod and 2 pins in his leg and hip, and after weight training in the pool, they put him in a jacuzzi type spa for relaxing the muscles and easing the pain. What's your doc say?
