LOw hot water pressure

I have very low water pressure from my hot water side of my upstairs bathroom tub. Earlier, I had calcium deposits (crystals) blocking my kitchen faucet and washing machine. Someone told me it was excessive heat from my hot water heater, causing the crystals. I lowered the thermastat and flushed the hot water heater which seemed to slow the problem down. But, the hot water side of my bathtub is at a trickle. the sink faucet only a few feet away runs fine. Is there anyway to clear the bathtub faucet if it is clogged.

Cool

What type of pipes do you have? Galvanized?
What type of faucet do you have? Brand?

Pipes

The pipes are copper. The house is about 6 years old. As for the faucet, it is a kohler for a jacuzzi.
