This is Amy and her mum, Stephanie. Amy has Juvenile Battens Disease, sadly this is a fatal condition caused by abnormal genes operating within the body.
To help make Amy’s life more enriched, for therapy, Stephanie & Derek (Amy’s parents) tried hydrotherapy pools, but the logistics became difficult so they looked into acquiring their own hot tub which would provide therapy at home. Amy loves her hot tub and uses it three to four times a week.
Amy benefits from using the hot tub through pain relief from muscle spasms, it improves her circulation, helps maintain a range of motion in her joints, provides relaxation and most importantly allows her freedom of movement.
