A hot tub is more than just a pleasant place to relax (although it definitely is that!). When you invest in a hot tub, you also invest in your health. The transformational benefits of hydrotherapy help the body in so many ways. Here are six of the top ways your health is better with a hot tub!
Soaking Can Improve Heart Health
Studies have shown that while you’re enjoying a relaxing soak in your hot tub, your heart is actually getting a workout similar to what happens during aerobic exercise. Additionally, soaking in your hot tub can lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation. This can improve your cardiovascular health tremendously.
Hot Tubs Lower Stress
If you’ve done much hot-tubbing, you’ve surely experienced fantastic stress relief first-hand. You crave that quiet alone time to relax and renew your mind. The quality hot tub time you get with your loved ones has led to deeper conversations and better relationships. The soothing jets also give you pain relief you need. Whatever reason you love your hot tub, studies have shown that soaking in your spa exponentially decreases stress.
Assistance With Pain Management
Whether you deal with chronic back pain or you’re rehabbing from a sports injury, soaking in a hot tub can help! The buoyancy of the water relieves tension and pressure from the injury, while the warmth increases blood flow to the area, promoting your body’s natural way to heal an injury. Add to that targeted massage jets to knead the affected area. Painful symptoms don’t stand a chance.
Get Better Sleep
Do you struggle to get enough good-quality sleep? Soaking in a hot tub 90 minutes before bed can help! The increase in body temperature soothes away the cares of the day. As you exit, your body temperature decreases quickly — telling your body that it is time to sleep. Your pre-bedtime soak will help you fall asleep easier and rest more deeply, allowing you to wake refreshed and ready for a new day.
Soaking Eases Stiffness
If you wake up stiff and tender, start your morning with a soak in your hot tub! The water’s heat will warm up your muscles, limber you up, and improve your range of motion. Amplify the results by doing stretches while you’re in the water. You’ll feel an improvement in your mood and your flexibility.
Reduce Joint Inflammation and Lessen Arthritis Symptoms
The environment your hot tub creates is ideal for receiving relief from arthritis and inflammation. The water’s buoyancy supports your body and relieves pressure. The heat relaxes you and eases stiffness. Finally, the hydrostatic pressure of the water reduces inflammation. Use your hot tub regularly to find out if you can have an improvement in your symptoms.
