When you want to relax, a bath is often the right solution: laying down in some hot water will help you forget about all the stress in the world, about all your problems and about all your everday life that might be extremely tiring. But what if it's not enough? What if it could be better? For example, with some bubbles... bubbles that aren't just here floating in the water, but massaging you. Well, if you want all of that you might want a jacuzzi. Jacuzzi, or hot tubs, have multiple benefits that will help your body, that will appear relaxed and well rested, but also your mind, they are a great help for your mental wellness, and they are a good helper in the obtaining of relax, rest, and it's also great for your psycho-physical balance. Water always had a lot of benefits, since ancient times, and we've always used it to be good and stay in good health! For example, jacuzzi and hot tubs are also great for our blood circulation. Jacuzzi use water, in particular hot one, as well as the bubbles, and expecially the pressure that create them - the mix of all those elements work extremely well as a massage. This works thanks to a hose that uses the hot tub, with which it aspirates the air from the outside to insert it into the tub - it can even be regulated to obtain the desired effect, maybe on specific parts of your body. It could be more intense, or less - all up to you! Of course you can't stay 24 hours, and seven days per week, in a jacuzzi. After each bath you will need a few minutes of rest, to regulate the pressure of your body, or else it might become worse. And it's better to not exagerrate: just twice or thrise at week is the right number. But that would be enough, because the relaxing power of a jacuzzi is simply that strong.

Never been a fan of saunas

I have never been a fan of saunas. I remember using one a few times at the hotels we have been to and they just get too hot for me. I find them hard to breathe in and just do not care much for them. Plus I have a fear of being locked into one which really scares me. On the other hand, I love hot tubs and jacuzzis. So much that one day I would love to have one! They feel very nice on your body and are great to relax in after a long hard day.

Keep in mind though, you do have two different types of saunas: wet and dry. The dry sauna has no moisture and provides little relief for breathing. With a wet sauna, there's more steam, but with proper ventilation, will allow you to breathe accordingly. It can also clear your sinuses as well if you're having nasal congestion.


It had to be the Jacuzzi for me. I am not a huge fan of the Sauna, to be honest plus the fact that you have to be in it for such a long time just puts me off. You can enjoy the Jacuzzi in your own time or if you are in a rush, it doesn't really matter. Plus you can get a Jacuzzi for your house, it's much harder and more expensive to get a Sauna for your house.

Jacuzzi all the way! If I could afford one, I'd buy it and put it somewhere outside my house so after a long working day I could just go inside of it for relaxation.

Saunas are fine but I am not a huge fan. I wouldn't go too many times because I dislike just feeling hot all over and sweating like crazy.

Jacuzzi also has a nice massage which will help you with tense muscles.

Well, both allow your skin to perspire and remove toxins. But in this comparison, I'd rather go with a jacuzzi, over the sauna. To be clear, sauna's are nice when you have the ability to control the room temperature. Otherwise, they can overheat and become very difficult to breathe in. A jacuzzi, on the other hand, is always pleasurable and a good stress reliever. Plus, in my mind, it's a lovely addition to a home as entertainment for guests.

Sounds Better

I have found out that it's more comfortable. And it's also more good for the body. And on that note it can be safely say that if you want physical peace then this is one to go for. I don't prefer any other option for the relaxation. Sauna is boring and also too much burden on body too.

I Would Vote Jacuzzi

I would definitely pick the Jacuzzi every time. i have had back issues over the years, and being in a Jacuzzi, with its pulsating hot jets of water massaging my back muscles and spine, is QUITE the wonderful and relaxing experience. i like to do this with a glass of wine and just let my mind drift, and afterwards, I always sleep really really well. Plus, i think that the ambient sound of the water is also relaxing and therapeutic, but I tend to stay in there so long that I come out wrinkled like a prune, lol.
Posted by JoeMilford on 11-29-2017


Comparing these two is hard, because both of them have a different effect on our bodies, a Jacuzzi can be safer and very nice for a lot of people, even though saunas in winter for example can be great. Of course, it depends on a lot of things like the season as mentioned earlier, however I'd go with the Jacuzzi, because you can just instantly get in it and relax.

Jacuzzi for the win!

I find more relaxing if I am going to a jacuzzi rather than the sauna. Because almost all of the countries have jacuzzi and I prefer to be in slightly hot water than to stay in a room with your sweat all around your body. For sure some people will find sauna as more relaxing than jacuzzi. But we have different ways to relax so it is normal. But for me, jacuzzi is way better than sauna.
Posted by blank629 on 12-04-2017

Jacuzzi all the way!

Are you kidding me? Jacuzzi all the way! There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in the Jacuzzi and kick back and talking to friends or wife or whoever lol. I know that after I get out of the Jacuzzi I feel 10 years younger and I am ready to take on the world =).
Posted by Soulwatcher on 12-07-2017

more fun

I think it's more fun as it's something that girls and boys can do together and it's a little sexier than being in a sauna. I associate saunas with older men sitting together so it's not as fun for me in my imagination. Whenever I see a jacuzi portrayed in TV it always is in a fun light and I would have to agree since there is less discomfort since you are not sweating and you can even bring drinks with you.

If there's one thing that I want to do the most whenever I'm in my bath time and that is to relax. I do love Jacuzzi because it relaxes my muscles and relieves all of my stress while I'm lying down and soak in water, especially while watching a movie. Isn't that a great experience to have? I love soaking in water so this is definitely fit for me. I just don't like the warm feeling on my body so Sauna is not for me.
Posted by ColdFlameChris on 12-26-2017

Jacu baby

I would choose Jacuzzi anytime, any day and anywhere because it's way more pleasurable to anything else. Before I used to see Jacuzzi being used in movies with high class hotel services am some yacht but recently I went to a spa house and saw one and I actually used it. The feeling was so wonderful.

Have you ever been in Finland? It's a magical place, thanks to which we have that marvelous thing known as sauna! The simplest and quickest description that could be made about it is a small wooden room where you get baths of steam and heat. And when I say heat, I really mean it, since the right temperature that you will find in a sauna will be around 60 and 100 Celsius degrees (or 140 and 212 Fahrenheit). Like jacuzzi and hot tubs, the sauna is extremely relaxing and have a lot of good benefits on your body: the extremely high temperature will help your body to get rid of all the toxins that are inside it, and of course it will heat you a lot... if it's winter, it's even better! Getting used to a sauna, however, might be harder than a jacuzzi, and to help your body you will need to take small steps before diving full in into the world of heated bahtrooms. Or else you won't obtain any of the benetis, and you would only end up harming yourself! For example you need to eat something: not too much, not too little. Just don't go with a empty stomach. Drink something too! Something heat, so you will sweat even more. After that, clean your body with some soap, some hot water and dry it... Either naked or with a towel, get ready to the sauna! It will have different phases: the first one is pretty short, just stay sitting and let the heat rise. The second phase, not always used but typical in the classical method, is a cold shower. After that you can go back in the sauna, and after ten minutes inside another cold shower awaits you. At the end you might want to drink something, to return to your body all the water that was expelled during the sauna... because, in case it wasn't clear enough already, it's not in there! Of course it's something that a lot of people love, that will relax you a lot and will have a lot of benefits to your mental and physical wellness.

Whether on cold winter days or in the heat of our summer, the sauna is a very common option for those who seek a little time to relax their bodies and minds. But is it really healthy? Many myths and truths surround this issue, but science points to several benefits of this practice, whether in aesthetic issues such as skin cleansing or health, such as strengthening heart functions and fighting respiratory problems. Discover the main advantages of making a "little money" once in a while.

A recent study published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology pointed out that only 15 minutes of sauna per day for a period of two weeks is enough to improve the functions of endothelial cells (the body's largest endocrine organ the arteries of the organism). Another research, carried out by Japanese scientists, concluded that the practice is useful for combating heart failure and increasing blood pumping in the heart.

I think I definitely prefer saunas over Jacuzzis. Sure it's true that both of them can be incredibly relaxing experiences, but I think saunas are generally healthier. It isn't to say that Jacuzzis are unhealthy, but I don't think there are any real health benefits to them besides being able to relax for a little bit. Saunas are good for you because you get to sweat out all of those nasty toxins in your skin, and leave you feeling light and refreshed. It might be annoying sometimes, but sweating is actually really good for you, as long as you stay hydrated of course.
Posted by Denis_P on 02-20-2018


I like both of these so it is hard to pick one. Many homes come with jacuzzis so that is one of the things that you might look forward to. I think that a jacuzzi is one of the things that will make your comfortable, but then again so will a sauna. It is up to you as to which one you would rather use. They both have their merits.
Posted by kgord on 11-28-2017
I have a colleague who has a jacuzzi in his home and it was pretty big that it can accommodate 8 people. He said that his wife had wanted the jacuzzi so he included that in the design of their new house. But after a year they were not using the jacuzzi very often because it seems that they are all busy and to think that the jacuzzi is costly with the water and the electricity maybe that killed their appetite.
Posted by Corzhens on 12-17-2018
Ohhh Jacuzzi for sure! it is extremely good for sore muscles, and helps you relax in just minutes. The only issue with it, is that the skin requires a good moisturizer after coming out, because hot water strikes hard on skin. I totally would love to have one at home, specially every night after coming from work, so I could leave all my stress and tension right there, boiling under hot water hahaha.
Posted by ballyhara on 11-28-2017
I like the two options, but they have different purposes, so... For that reason I won't choose any of the options as my favorite. But I think I have a greater inclination for jacuzzi, haha (in general, seems to be a better option).
Posted by wiseagent on 11-28-2017
I tried both Jacuzzi and Sauna but for me I prefer Jacuzzi .sitting in a Jacuzzi for a period of time has a number of benefits, both physical and mental. A Jacuzzi can be a good place in which to relax with family and friends. You can spend time together sipping a drink or simply having a chat. The bubbling of the Jacuzzi is particularly soothing and will help you relax not only mentally but also physically. A Jacuzzi can be an effective way to treat sore muscles and joints. The water jets inside the tub allow for a high-pressure hydro massage that you direct to specific parts of your body simply by moving around and adjusting your body to receive the full force of the water. Every weekend I and my family go to spa which have a Jacuzzi and have family banding.

I think I have been to a sauna just one and for a short time. Even if I need to shed off pounds, I don’t think I would undergo a sauna session because I didn’t enjoy it. In our last trip abroad, the hotel room has a jacuzzi and I had a wonderful time. Imagine being soaked in the tub with a jacuzzi and the bathroom has a tv that I could watch. It’s a great hotel in Taipei called Tango Hotel ChangAn.
Posted by Corzhens on 11-29-2017
I have not tried jacuzzi or sauna too many times, and I don't know the which one befits more. However, in my experience, both of these systems are good for your mind and body. Jacuzzi and sauna improve circulatory system and nervous system, detox your body by making you perspire.
Posted by vinaya on 11-29-2017
I love both but I will go for Jacuzzi, I like the customizations that comes with it which gives one the ability to adjust it to one interest.It helps to relaxed the entire body and let it be in a frenzy mood which is what the body needs sometimes.With all the stress that comes with making money and other life's struggles what the body need s at the end of the day is a refreshing tool and jacuzzi comes to the rescue.It can only get better.
Posted by lovely on 11-29-2017
Depends on the situation. As a chronic allergy sufferer I like saunas for decongesting my head and that's honestly about it. The steam helps break up mucus and helps me breathe easier but I honestly don't like sharing spaces with other people. Jacuzzi, eh if I'm super sore from constantly working or have been doing lots of physical activity.
Posted by Rhodolite on 11-29-2017
I definitely prefer a Jacuzzi. It's great for sore muscles, and I have a bad back. I do have to be careful though. Too much heat is bad for inflammation, which can backfire. Ice is generally better for a lot of types of pain. Still, a good soak feels great (at least at the time).
Posted by Zyni on 11-29-2017
I think sauna is not much preferred among many people. And on that note. I'd say that those who are choosing to go with the sauna options are not going to be in this for the healthy way. It just going to take more time in there. And we have to consider how the jacuzzi seems to be lot better for the people who want some level of comfort and relaxation.
Posted by overcast on 11-30-2017
I prefer the jacuzzi. I find that the combination of heat and steam make it difficult for me to breathe. Because of that, I can't sit back and relax. Instead I sit there focusing on how I need to get some air and start feeling slightly panicky. With the hot tub/jacuzzi, I can breathe and still get the muscle relaxing heat that I need.
Posted by Rmarsh1984 on 12-06-2017
I find a sauna to be extremely boring and uncomfortable, perhaps I have never done one in the right way. To sit in a small room and sweat is not my idea of fun. A jacuzzi is awesome, very relaxing. If I could afford one I would definitely have one in my home, I think it would be awesome in our cold weather.
Posted by Rhombus on 12-23-2017
The jaccuzi should be the perfect way to give your body that rest and peace of mind that it deserves after a hard days work since it will relieve you from all the stress, remove hypertension, reduce your weight, prevent rheumatism,massage your body well and at the end of each week you always have the feeling that you have gotten a perfect healthy body.
Posted by babyright on 04-22-2018
I would choose Jacuzzi over Sauna because Jacuzzis make me feel refreshed and relaxed. Also it's easier to clean and maintain unlike a sauna. Besides Sauna's are much more expensive than a Jacuzzi.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 09-24-2018
I'd rather have a jacuzzi. The idea of sweating every day doesn't seem as attractive as taking a hot, relaxing bath with bubbles in a jacuzzi. Saunas also don't look so hygienic for me, I can imagine a huge infestation of bacteria and germs thriving in that room.
