Why a Hot Tub Does a Body Good
You already know that owning a Hot Tub will inspire lots of socializing and family bonding, but there are plenty of great body and mind benefits, too—all of which are backed by science.
Ready to soak away your symptoms? Regular Hot Tub time can help you to:
1. Say Goodbye to Stress
If you’re no stranger to tension headaches, tight shoulders, and an overall feeling that you’re overwhelmed by all you do, you’re officially stressed out. What you need is some time to relax, and a way to relieve the tightness that has worked its way into your muscles. A Hot Tub provides a safe haven from your worries, while the soothing warm water and massaging jets help make you feel like you again.
2. Send Lower Back Pain Packing
At one point or another, most people experience lower back pain and could use some relief. Hydrotherapy can target this common sore spot and massage away the discomfort.
3. Kick Sleeplessness Out of Bed
Few people get an adequate amount of restful sleep, but it’s definitely something to strive toward. Studies have found that spending 20 minutes in a warm Hot Tub before bedtime can get your body slumber-ready, thanks to the changes in body temperature and feelings of relaxation.
4. Bounce Back from Brutal Workouts
Ever wake up so sore the day after a tough workout that you feel like you need a vacation from the gym? Some muscle soreness and joint pain is inevitable when you push hard, but you don’t have to take it lying down. Instead, head to the hot tub and let the massaging jets work their magic. What they’re really doing is improving blood flow and breaking down the lactic acid in your muscles.
5. Calm Your Restless Legs
That uncomfortable feeling of not being in control of your legs jumping and shaking while you’re trying to relax can be so frustrating. If you suffer from restless leg syndrome, experts say one way to help calm your lower extremities is to spend time in the Hot Tub before bed.
6. Push Past Arthritis Pain
Hydrotherapy’s combination of warm water, buoyancy, and massaging jets can help improve circulation and bring relief to stiff muscles and achy joints, even among arthritis sufferers. In fact, some people report that because they are able to do gentle stretching in the hot tub, it helps with their grip strength and mobility.
7. Face the Day With Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is still not fully understood, but one thing’s for sure—it can be debilitating for those who live with the constant pain, fatigue, and changes in mood. Hot Tub time has been found to have a calming effect on people with fibromyalgia, helping to lift their spirits and relieve some of their pain.
