Health and Wellness

There are many studies that point to the effectiveness of using water as a tool for pain relief. This is also known as hydrotherapy. Soaking in a tub of warm water can help relieve joint and muscle pain, help improve circulation and more.

The increased depth of a walk-in tub allows you to fully submerge yourself, so you can take full advantage of hydrotherapy.

For those with limited mobility, bathing and maintaining personal hygiene can often be difficult. A walk-in tub can make the process of bathing easier and more convenient.

Additionally, with its low-step entry, having a walk-in tub in your home can help reduce the risk of falling while getting in or out of the tub, compared to a traditional bathtub.


It’s easy to forget that a walk-in tub also doubles as a stand-up or sit-down shower. This is an ideal solution for families whose needs require both a shower and a walk-in tub.

It is becoming more and more common for senior homeowners to choose to stay in their homes as long as possible, instead of opting to live in an assisted living facility. Adding a walk-in tub to your home is an easy modification that can make the dream of living at home for longer a reality.
