The Top 5 Benefits of Hot Tub Therapy
The use of water to treat pain is a method that is almost as old as time itself. Dating back to ancient Egypt, hydrotherapy has long been used for pain relief. Today, a daily dose of hot tub therapy can work wonders for your health and wellbeing, treating conditions ranging from chronic back pain to arthritis to stress. An outdoor hot tub allows you to reap the benefits of hydrotherapy from the comfort of your own backyard.
StressHeated water combined with massage from spa jets increases endorphin production, relieving tension and soreness. Endorphins, a group of hormones that work together with the receptors in your brain to reduce pain sensitivity, are produced in response to stimuli. Endorphins are like a natural drug — they have the ability to trigger mild euphoria, allowing your body to relax and your mind to clear.
PainImmersion in warm water decreases muscle pain, spasms and stiffness and reduces stress on joints. The heat of the water and jet massage work together to relieve tension while stimulating blood flow. Enhanced circulation decreases swelling and speeds healing of injured muscles and joints. An added benefit of this water-based therapeutic technique is the buoyancy of the water, which helps to lift up to 90% of the added weight from your body, so your muscles and joints can truly relax and heal.
DetoxHydrotherapy increases the circulation of blood and lymph fluid around the body, aiding in the elimination of wastes and toxins while replenishing the nutrients. Daily dips in the hot tub also help white blood cells circulate to any part of the body battling germs. Aside from the health benefits, heated water can improve your appearance. Sweating rids the skin of impurities for an improved complexion while also reducing fluid retention and the appearance of cellulite.
MobilityRelaxing in your hot tub can increase your flexibility. Heat from the water speeds your circulation, warming your muscles and giving you an increased range of motion. Adding some light exercises to your soak, such as yoga or stretches, is a great way to increase the mobility of your muscles. This new-found mobility can also help to improve your balance and flexibility, when in combination with one another has been found to help prevent injuries and improve overall quality of life, especially for those who suffer from health conditions such as arthritis.
SleepTaking a 20-minute dip in the hot tub two hours before bedtime can help you to fall asleep faster and improve your sleep quality. The heated water will raise your body temperature, which is key to bringing on that pre-bedtime feeling of sleepiness. After getting out of the spa, your temperature will slowly drop, telling your body it is time to rest. Unlike bathtubs, a hot tub offers a true hydrotherapy experience, thanks to the ergonomic seats and powerful jet system. Designed for therapeutic purposes, a premium spa offers comfort and a constant water temperature, enabling you to get the most out of your soak.
