Hot Tub Health Benefits: Hydrotherapy
Blog | 7.16.2018
We all know, and probably experience firsthand, the toll stress can take on our overall health and wellness. Thankfully, hot tubs and spas give their owners a luxurious opportunity to relax and destress every day in the comfort of their own home. But beyond stress reduction, the soothing jets and warm water of a hot tub provide a number of other important health benefits that matter to you. The following are just a few of the advantages of hot tub hydrotherapy.
Hot Tubs Can Ease Muscle and Joint Pain
One of the most widely known hot tub health benefits is muscle and joint relaxation. Buoyancy, heat, and massage work together to ease the aches and pains that come from everyday living. The heat elevates the body temperature which results in the dilatation of the blood vessels, which increases blood circulation. At the same time, buoyancy reduces the weight bearing effects of gravity to relieve some of the pressure on your joints and muscles. Of course, all this happens while the hot tub jets are delivering a soothing massage that eases joints and gently loosens tight muscles.
Hot Tubs Can Help Manage Arthritis’ Symptoms
The heat from the hot tub can also help relieve aches and pains that comes from arthritis. In fact, The Arthritis Foundation strongly recommends soaking in warm water. According to the Foundation, “The research shows our ancestors got it right. It makes you feel better. It makes the joints looser. It reduces pain and it seems to have a somewhat prolonged effect that goes beyond the period of immersion.”
Warm water therapy is one of the most non-invasive ways to manage and minimize pain and discomfort – plus it is safe and effective with zero side effects! You can check out more of the Foundation’s findings when you read the complete article.
Hot Tubs Can Promote Better Sleep
Stress is one of the biggest deterrents to a good night’s sleep. At the end of a long day, the stress hormones still lingering in your body can make it difficult to settle down and fall asleep. The deep relaxation of sitting in a hot tub helps to soothe your body and mind so that it’s easier to wind down before bed.
To use your hot tub to improve sleep, take a good soak in the tub each night before going to bed, letting go of the stress from the day as you relax. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your body responds to this new routine.
