Most people have stopped having baths or even had their bathtubs removed, as most people have a “quick shower”. They are considered cleaner, more cost effect, time saving and showers take up far less space. So plenty of reasons to take a shower. However, you are missing out on an extremely therapeutic tool especially if you have arthritis. Baths can be used to de-stress your life and treat various conditions especially painful . Most people are too busy getting ready for to work in the morning so showers are the only answer. After a particularly hard day at work with aches and pains especially from arthrits, its good to relax in a warm bath, especially if you have trouble sleeping.
