4 Ways a Hot Tub Promotes Health & Wellness
4 WAYS A HOT TUB PROMOTES HEALTH & WELLNESS
Anyone who has stepped into a Hot Tub knows how relaxing they are, but did you know about the proven health and wellness benefits? There’s more to the equation than simply feeling relaxed; the health benefits your spa provides are very real and we’d like to share some of them and go into detail. There’s about a dozen benefits of soaking in the spa, but in this post we want to focus on the top four health benefits:
- Relieves Sore Muscles
The warmth of your hot tub helps to soothe your sore muscles. Whether you just got back from an intense workout, have lower back pain, or have general pain in your joints, the pressure of a spa jet can help target those muscles, relieving your pain. Let’s put it this way, a recliner can offer help, but a hot tub can offer healing. Believe it or not, hot tubs can also help increase your range of motion in your joints, which is yet anot
her plus. So don’t bother calling the chiropractor just yet, jump into a warm spa and feel the comfort in your muscles and joints.
- Decreases Stress Levels
So, you had a tough day of work. Or maybe the kids seem to have more energy than normal this week. Whatever the case may be, you’re probably stressed when the week is up and Friday evening comes rolling around. Did you know that the heat from a hot tub actually increases your blood flow naturally, making you feel more relaxed? Too much stress can lead to bigger health problems down the road, so use a hot tub as a means to lower your stress and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors at the same time.
- Gives You a Better Night’s Rest
On average, many people don’t sleep well. We’re sure you’ve had a poor night’s rest a time or two in the past month, or even week (hopefully not). Sitting in your hot tub an hour or two before you hit the hay will help your body and brain to relax, allowing you to fall asleep and then stay asleep throughout the night. Many agree that getting 8 hours of sleep determines just how healthy our thinking and daily performance is, so why not turn to the aid of a hot tub before bed?
- Promotes a Healthy Heart
When you sit in a hot tub, your heart rate actually increases without you having to run on a treadmill or peddle a bike. To be frank, you can enjoy some of the results of a workout without the actual workout. Who knew? A hot tub will also help decrease blood pressure instead of increasing it as if you were working out. For those with naturally high blood pressure, a spa can actually be used to lower the blood pressure and get the body at ease.
Do any of these resonate with your lifestyle? If you have any questions around which type of hot tub might be right for you, we’re here to help.
