I cannot thank you enough for making the “Ella” walk-in bathtub affordable to me.
My sole purpose in looking to purchase one was so I could give myself a bath rather than have Rita, my life partner of 37 years get in the shower with me to clean me. A cold reward for such a kind act.
Therefore, so you will remember, a short synopsis of the diseases from which I suffer. Since the age of 5 years, I suffered from leg cramping pain. My mother kept taking me to doctors with no diagnosis. I was active in sports my whole life. As mentioned my leg pain began when I was 5 years old, I have suffered with leg pain ever since. In 1998, the fifth neurologist I visited gave me a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. The first four told me that it was all in my head. I am on my sixth neurologist now!
I was also told that I am on the borderline of having rheumatoid arthritis. I do have fibromyalgia, chronic debilitating arthritis with articulation of bone on bone. I also have scoliosis so badly that I was in severe pain after my laminectomy. After several falls, I fell one more time and broke my lumbar.
On August 5 & 7 of 2013, I underwent major surgery to correct the scoliosis in my spine. The first surgery on the fifth was to prepare my spine by building it back up using cadaver bone mixed with my stem cells. The second surgery was 8 ½ hours and I almost lost my life but that is another story. I have titanium rods that go from T9 to my sacrum. Six months later, I fell and broke my sacrum. By this synopsis, I am sure one would agree I am qualified to know pain.
Your personal testimony regarding using hydrotherapy to conquer pain was hard for me to believe. To learn that you were able to function without pain medication, actually to be able to get off the pain medication completely made me very skeptical.
After my second bathtub experience, my partner, Rita talked me into relaxing by turning the jets on. Having not been a “spa girl” I never thought that sitting in a hot tub would be relaxing.
My pain was much better after sitting in the tub with the jets going. This water movement really helped my circulation in my legs, ankles and feet. I have been using the hydrotherapy since April, that’s 5 months now, so I know this is no farce.
I can only give you my sincerest thanks from the bottom of my heart. Mr. Ferris, because of you and Leisure Life my pain is more under control than it has been since I was 5 years old. As for my medication, I have been trying to reduce the dosage of the Neurontin for the last 10 years. Out of a maximum dosage of 3600 mg per day, I was taking 3400 mg per day. I have been able to reduce to 2900 mg per day. A 500 mg reduction in 4 months! I also have cut the Baclofen in half, a muscle relaxer that is hard to quit! I have only taken morphine 2 times in 5 months, which is extraordinary for me. I plan to start reducing the Methadone, which I take 20 mg every 8 hours.
Another reason that I am so grateful to you is that the first night after my bath, I slept 16 hours! I have not slept over 2 hours every night since 2001.
I cannot thank you and Leisure Life enough for the change you have brought to my life.
Thank you for helping Wayne and I with our new Ella Elite tub installation, (answering our questions) and for making such a beautiful product. Yours was the only product, we saw on-line that impressed us. We have had to make so many adjustments with purchasing wheelchairs, bed-rails and other medical aids, that to actually find such a “beautiful” product was refreshing and exciting for us/me.
Thank you so much
– Marg and Wayne
As an Ellas Walk in Tub dealer in north Georgia, I can attest to the quality and reliability of the Ellas Deluxe tub. We have installed 18 tubs in almost every conceivable situation and the clients have loved them. Our clientele has ranged from individuals with disabilities to seniors that need a therapeutic bathing experience along with the added safety of the walk in tub. With the dual drains, the “chill effect” is completed eliminated.

Thank you Ella Walk in Baths! I am impressed so far with the promise of this quality product as I have done extensive research before deciding on Ella’s Bubbles. I am as much impressed with the courteous, knowledgeable and helpful service by the Ella Team. Having been in business for 40 years myself…it does make a difference. I am praying America gets these kind business ethics back into her soul and heart!

Highly recommended. Provided complete bathroom remodel including installation of a walk in whirl pool bath and a complete electrical and plumbing upgrade for my ninety year old father. Excellent and professional service and skill. My father loves his new bathroom, which makes his life much easier. All of his children love his bathroom because it is simply beautiful. Top notch customer service, would definitely recommend and use again.

Just a brief note to thank you for a job extremely well done!!!
As someone who has spent 35 years supervising major construction jobs in Manhattan co-ops and condominiums, I have learned to appreciate and admire quality construction.
The job you recently completed at 200 South Middle Neck Road in Great Neck, New York left me speechless. From the initial demolition through the first installation your crew performed flawlessly, with no extra costs. That you were able to perform such work in six days was amazing. That you were able to perform such work in such close surroundings, with no impact on a busy household was truly remarkable.
The Ella acrylic bathtub and wall system has made our friends and neighbors truly envious. We have recommended you to all who are searching for a talented contractor and dependable acrylic walk-in tub. We will continue to do so in the future!
Thank you so much; and please feel free to use me as a reference on your future efforts.

I just wanted to tell you and your guys how much it was a joy for you to come in to my house and install my wonderful tub I purchase from you. I wished I would have done this 2 or 3 years ago it has been a Blessing to me and after my husband tried it he loves it to.

My husband and I just purchased a walk-in tub from Ella’s Bubbles for my mother. She’s 81 and common tasks aren’t as easy for her as they used to be. She has bad arthritis and aching joints, and fell getting out of her bathtub two months ago. We have been so worried about her living by herself since that incident and had to take action. We hated the idea of putting her somewhere and didn’t have the space to move her in with us. On the verge of giving up, our friend told us about walk in bathtubs. We did a lot of research on them and shopped around many stores. We settled on Ella’s for many reasons- the features, the quality, the price, and not to mention how helpful they were in answering all of our questions.
Getting a walk in bath for my mother was the answer to all of our problems. She can safely get in and out of the walk in tub and we don’t have to worry about her slipping and falling anymore. Plus she can stay in her own home where she loves to be! With the air jets and hydro massage features, she even says her joints are aching like they used to. This walk-in bathtub has truly been a blessing to our family.

The Walk-in-Tub is an Ella’s Bubbles tub and we are well pleased to have this walkin-tub and the price was very affordable. The tub is now installed and I did the installation myself with no real problems.
Hello, I have gone though similar situations and most of you looking for a good walk-in bath tub. I hope my input helps
I have 2 friends each of whom has a walk-in tub and they both love theirs. Only complaint is waiting for the tub to fill. Some of the models offer air jets, and water heaters to keep the water warm. There is also a “bladder” that is supposed to let the water fill and empty faster.
One of my friends is 85 and has just recently broken her hip; her tub was a blessing during her recovery!
They bought their’s here it had the best quality and best price.
