“My father is 85 years old, suffers from Alzheimer’s, chronic back pain, arthritis, and diabetes. So far, in the months we had had the tub, his skin has softened, and he no longer requires moisturizer. He is now able to walk unassisted and only uses his cane occasionally, for balance. His mind has improved and his overall health is better. He also, no longer requires monthly visits to the doctor! I would (and do) recommend this tub and this company to everybody!”

Karen Mitchell

I can choose to fill it up and soak my whole body or just soak my feet!”

JoAnn Smith
