Health Benefits of Soaking In a Hot Tub

A Balanced Life … a Wellness Routine for YOU

 

A 20-minute daily soak has proven health and wellness benefits.

Hydrotherapy – the use of water for medicinal benefits – is one of the easiest health and wellness solutions to practice.

Hydrotherapy helps soothe and relax the body by dilating blood vessels and increasing blood flow. Sending this blood to the skin and muscles causes a reduction and ease in stiffness throughout the body.

Even better, a combination of hydrotherapy with high-powered jets has been shown to increase organ function and circulation. Coupling the hot water experience with our unique high power jets allows you to create an individualized wellness practice to help soothe your mind and body.

Hot tubs are built to give you physical benefits, psychological benefits, and general health benefits.

Muscle tension and body aches are alleviated with the combination of hot water and jet massage. The hot water works to warm up your muscles and the jets go to work on those pain points with direct pressure therapy. This relaxes your entire body and increases circulation to help your body cleanse and detoxify.

As your body relaxes, your mind also unwinds and releases ‘feel-good’ hormones.

Hot tubs are also known to help with other ailments such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, and high blood pressure, to name a few. Always consult your doctor before using a hot tub on a regular basis.

Hot water therapy isn’t new! It’s been around for a very long time. Ancient cultures had bathhouses where patrons went to socialize or relieve rheumatism, arthritis, and other maladies. People from miles around traveled to these baths.  However, when you have a Nordic Hot Tub in your backyard, you only have to travel a few feet out your back door to experience the relief of hot water therapy!

Reduce Stress

Stress is reduced naturally when the body is stimulated through massage, exercise, and other means. These activities release neurotransmitters called endorphins, which assist the body in handling pain, stress, and emotional issues. Hydrotherapy massage in a hot tub is one way to release endorphins, naturally increasing pleasure and relieving stress. Headaches can be reduced as water jets in whirlpools and spas help to dilate blood vessels, increasing blood flow.

Recover after physical activity

The adjustable jets in your hot tub provide a soothing massage to relax your muscles after exercise or activity. Whether you’re an athlete or follow your own fitness routine, the heated massage therapy provided by your hot tub can be especially beneficial for those seeking a natural solution towards relieving minor muscle aches and pains.

Muscles and joints benefit from increased blood circulation provided by streaming warm water. Skin and muscles loosen and relax, and the body naturally heals damaged areas through improved blood flow to injuries.

A soak right before bed can help you fall asleep faster
… and lead to a better night’s sleep

Hot water therapy is a popular solution for alleviating muscle soreness and tension, increasing blood flow, and reducing stress. To make the most of your nighttime soak, plan it for after you’ve finished all work, chores, and tasks around the house for the night and just before bedtime. This is a great time to ignore any distractions and to help ease your mind into relaxation. Try keeping your phone in another room, the TV off, and listen to the sounds of the night around you or gentle soothing music.

When you’re ready to get out of the spa, you can rinse off and head to bed with your body already prepared to fall asleep.

Alleviate pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, and more…

Arthritis pain can be relieved through hydrotherapy. With soothing warmth, the natural buoyancy of water alleviates stress on joints, allowing freedom of movement and restorative therapy in an immersive, healing whirlpool experience.

Other serious diseases such as depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, scoliosis, and bursitis may be positively affected by hydrotherapy through regular hot-tubbing. In fact, some people afflicted with diseases as serious as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy have been known to experience relief of symptoms thanks to hydrotherapy. Wrist jets provide reflexology for relaxation and stress alleviation.

With all the benefits that a regular soak gives you, there is no better time than now to find the perfect hot tub for your home!
