OH yes! BB . Jacuzzis are FABULOUS for arthritic joints and achey muscles. Even if you DON'T ache your muscles take a beating from the exertion of exercising. If you aren't used to them , they seem VERY hot. But if the pool you use is pretty warm, just go directly into the J Tub after swimming, then take a cool shower, swimsuit and all at first to wash the chlorine from you suit. 5 min or so in the tub, focusing the jets on your more achey joints or muscles by doing some sometimes odd positioning.or laying sideways , lol, would help you in the long run.
I NEVER skip the one at the gym.
20 min eliptical, 40 min pool exercises, then 5-10 in the J tub = BLISS
