Bliss Tubs Walk-in Tubs Healing Benefits
Discover the Healing Benefits of a Walk-in Tub and the Restorative Potential of Hydrotherapy
By offering high-quality walk-in tubs that are safe and therapeutic, Bliss Tubs demonstrates its commitment to helping individuals overcome the risks of bathing in a standard bathtub. For those who struggle to get into and out of a standard tub, dreading the difficult 30” threshold and slippery bathtub floor, a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub is the answer to your changing bathing requirements. Not only are our walk-in tubs designed to provide you with a safe and luxurious bathing experience, but they are also designed to harness the healing power of hydrotherapy to promote better health and an improved quality of life.
What is hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is the full immersion of the body into both hot and cold water as a natural and holistic treatment which detoxifies the blood, stimulates blood circulation, enhances the immune system, improves digestion, reduces inflammation and much more. For thousands of years, people around the world have benefited from the healing power of hydrotherapy. In recent decades, doctors have confirmed the healing power of bathing, and studies and testimonials have shown how hydrotherapy is a reliable and affordable home remedy for treating the symptoms of many of today’s most common ailments such as:
- Atherosclerosis or “hardening of the arteries”
- Cardio-vascular conditions
- Heart Disease
- Insulin Resistance
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Oxidative Stress
- Pulmonary conditions
- Skin conditions: psoriasis and eczema etc.
- Stroke Recovery
- Varicose veins
Walk-in Tub Benefits for Arthritis
Arthritis affects the lives of millions of Americans. However, simply bathing in a walk-in bathtub serves as an easy and effective remedy for this debilitating condition.
Studies have shown that, after just three weeks of regular warm bathing, arthritis sufferers experienced less pain and stiffness and became more limber. As water reduces body weight by 90%, pressure is relieved from joints. This allows a decompression of the cartilage and promotes much-needed repair in the affected area. Warm water therapy enhances healing by dilating blood vessels and increasing blood flow to damaged tissue. The Arthritis Foundation affirms that warm water therapy keeps joints looser. The soothing and therapeutic water in a walk-in tub can help restore strength and delay further damage to sensitive joints.
Additionally, our tubs are designed to be taller and hold a larger water capacity than a standard bathtub. This ensures that arthritis sufferers can benefit from greater immersion into their tub’s water. Not only that, but since our tubs also have a built-in, ADA compliant, 17” high seat, with anti-slip flooring and integrated grab bars, those with arthritis will not have to adjust themselves into or out of painful positions within their bathtub. No matter where arthritis affects you, you can sit comfortably in the healing waters of your walk-in tub and enjoy the benefits on all areas of your body.

Walk-in Tub Benefits for Diabetes
Bringing a Bliss Tubs walk-in bathtub into the home is one of the best steps for treatment and management of diabetes. According to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, type II diabetes patients reported a 13% reduction in blood-sugar levels, improved sleep, and an increased sense of well-being by simply enjoying warm water therapy as a home remedy for diabetes symptoms. Research shows stress reduction improves the quality of life and may indirectly improve blood sugar control. What better way to relax than to step safely into a walk-in tub by Bliss Tubs?

Walk-in Tub Benefits for Alzheimer’s
Living with Alzheimer’s requires patience for both the patient and the caregiver, and bathing is one of the most difficult tasks to overcome. A walk-in tub helps to alleviate many of the fears associated with bathing for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.
Walk-in Tub Benefits for Individuals with Alzheimer’s :
- Creates a safe atmosphere. Every Bliss Tubs walk-in bathtub comes with standard safety features to ensure that individuals with Alzheimer’s and/or other neurodegenerative disorders can feel in control and relaxed while bathing.
- Uses Seated Bathing: Our built-in, ADA compliant, 17″ high, contoured seat makes it easier for the caregiver to help the patient into the walk-in tub while providing a greater sense of safety for the bather.
- Provides much-deserved dignity: The customized style of a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub addresses fears of exposure and vulnerability by providing a secure environment for individuals while they bathe.
Walk-in Tub Benefits for Heart Health
For many people looking to improve their heart health, exercising is not easy. However, a recent Mayo Clinic study revealed how soaking in a warm bath increases heart rate while lowering blood pressure, providing the cardiovascular benefits similar to those of cardio exercises while granting the bather greater comfort and less strain on their heart. The study showed that warm water immersion, such as is available in a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub, can protect the heart from arrhythmias and improve the strength of the heart.
Walk-in Tub Benefits for Sleep Disorders
Drifting peacefully into a deep sleep can be difficult after a stressful day or when trying to ignore chronic pain. Instead of reaching for over-the-counter sleep aids, there’s a simpler, safer and more natural solution: a warm bath in a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub. Studies have shown that taking a twenty-minute bath, at least an hour before bed, naturally puts the body into a state of relaxation and sleep readiness. Although it may not grant relief from sleep apnea, the therapeutic spa system of a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub promotes healthy sleep by combating pain and other troublesome symptoms caused by various medical conditions. When the hydrotherapy of your walk-in tub is combined with optional massage systems and other therapy systems such as aromatherapy or chromotherapy, your ability to fall into a restful sleep after your bath increases greatly.
Walk-in Tub Benefits for Stress Reduction
Hydrotherapy helps heal the mind in many ways, and a Bliss Tubs walk-in bath offers a variety of spa systems that can help with pain and stress relief.

Our fast paced world seems intent upon getting more and more frenzied with each passing day. Investing in a Bliss Tubs walk-in tub is one way to bring relief, sanctuary, and a sense of calm to an otherwise hurried lifestyle.
