Therapy in Haven Spas
copyright 2003-2009 HavenMade Inc.
I have stories about our spas and the intensity of therapy. My favorite
is from a fellow who flew in and wet tested the Springville (the sister
to the Watertown) and loved it.
He got it home and his wife basically said "What do we need all those
for. You know that we just like to soak in hot water?"
The spa they had before was much loved and out of date. It had few jets
very little if any therapy. It was what she had become accustomed to
had not ever tried a full therapy spa. (The old spa was full foam
leaking inside the foam.)
One day both of them were suffering from a severe flu. He suggested
she try the main therapy seat in their Springville. She had a lot of
aches in her neck and shoulders, lungs all congested and suffering
bad. I have had flu like that a few times in my life.
She turned on the jets full blast and got the massage of her life.
shoulders, back, hips, feet wrists. After she got a good night's sleep
woke up feeling a lot better, she now understands. It is a therapy
as well as a soaking tub.
After that she started using the hot seat most every night before going
bed. She reported sleeping better and waking up feeling better.
We have had customers report a reduction of arthritis from out intense

Shiatsu Massage (part time in the late 70’s and early 80’s). There are
levels of intensity of massage (or touch ) based upon the deepth of the
pain and tension.
When you have deep tension in your muscles, it is a sign of mental

mental pain and it reflects in your body as blocked energy flow.

The jets on the Haven Paramount spas are working at the high end of the
recommendations for PSI and GPM. There are many of them that do the job
There are many times when I don't even turn on the jets at all. There
other times when I run them full blast for 20 to 30 minutes. Other
when I run the jets lightly. Haven Spas are fully adjustable from very
to very intense.
The levels of massage are due to having two speed pumps on all the jets
having air injection and turbo air. We have all the types of therapy
we don't sell you short.
Most other companies have extremely limited therapy. The jet pumps are
speed and they often have no air injection or turbo air. They use
valves to short cut the water flow of the pumps. There is a lot of
in the levels of massage that we have that no other company has.
Here is a synopsis of the levels of intensity.
This is for our Haven Spas with full therapy air and water jets.
1/ Hot/ warm water, no jets.
2/ Hot/ warm water with low speed jets no air at all.
3/Hot/ warm water with low speed jets and venturi air.
4/ Hot/ warm water, with low speed jets and low air injection and turbo
(in the two speed blower models).
5/ Hot /warm water with low speed jets and high air speed blower and
6/ Hot/warm water with high speed jets and no venturi air.
7/ Hot/warm water with high speed jets and venturi air.
8/ Hot/warm water with high speed jet and turbo air and air injection.
In addition to that we make each of the jets fully adjustable and you
shut off some of them in areas where you are more tender to focus on
areas where you need deeper jet pressure.
You can also simply use the air blower by itself, I usually do that in
for only a few minutes if the jet pumps are off; in summer as much as I

you can run them pretty much all that you want.
If the intensity is not there, you can't even understand what I am
about. Most Spas with weak jets, cannot do the deeper levels of therapy
the Haven Spas do.
It is from my studies of the "body therapy" methods throughout the
that I have developed the Haven therapy with many levels of intensity.
Don't be hoodwinked into the nonsense that much cheaper spas using one

pipes, Sold for $12,000 or more. How do they live with themselves?
You have to realize that if we can produce a Haven product with such
therapy, larger numbers of jets and sell it for the low prices that we
I get really perturbed by the nonsense and greed in this industry.
