they raise your bp and i would limit the amount of time you spend in either one…but if you have joint issues a hot tub would be best…consult your doctor first before buying

Use great caution when using saunas and hot tubs. I would not suggest going in alone in either case until you find what you can tolerate. Have you spoken to your doctor to see what they recommend?
