Hot Tubs: The Benefits are Unbelievable!
As the weather starts to cool down, we are all thinking it’s time to get the hot tub ready for the winter. Nothing better than laying in the tub as the snowflakes slowly come down, ahh so relaxing!
Relaxation may be one of the first reasons people want to experience a hot tub, but the combination of heat, buoyancy of water, and massage from water jets provides much more than just a calming soak.
Therapeutic benefits can help almost anyone enjoy a healthier life when you use a hot tub on a regular basis. Below are just a few examples of the hydrotherapy rewards that may help you or someone you know:
Many tests and studies have been done on the advantage of Hydrotherapy and people with diabetes. Studies that were done proved that within a 3-week period, for 30 minutes a day, people with diabetes, had their blood sugars lowered by 13% making it easier to control. Blood circulation is very important to diabetes sufferers and hydrotherapy is one of the best for helping with circulation.
Who doesn’t have stress these days? When we have stress, we know the best way to relieve stress is through diet and exercise, releasing endorphins. What a lot of us did not know is that hydrotherapy does this as well. A regular routine of soaking in your hot tub can wash that stress away. Headaches are not always stress related. So, if you have a headache the best place to get rid of it is in the hot tub. The increase in your body’s blood flow from the dilated blood vessels will make you feel better in no time.
The warmth of the water and the healing from the jet pressures help restore the movement in your joints giving you the freedom to move around without so much pain. According to the Arthritis Foundation, “the soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water make it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness.” Muscles and joints benefit the most from the increased blood circulation provided by streaming warm water in hot tubs. Skin and muscles loosen and relax, and the body naturally heals damaged areas through improved blood flow to injuries.
The National Sleep Foundation has done studies that have proven that a 30-minute soak in your hot tub enjoying the hydrotherapy, allows people to fall in to a deeper sleep and at a faster rate. These same people not only fell asleep faster but stayed asleep longer. People suffering from a history of insomnia benefit the most, waking up rejuvenated and ready to start your day. Anyone that has ever experienced insomnia knows how a good long night of sleep makes a world of difference.
Other Major Illness:
Serious diseases such as depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, and scoliosis may be positively affected by hydrotherapy through a regular spa experience. In fact, some people afflicted with diseases as serious as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy have been known to experience major relief of symptoms, thanks to hydrotherapy.
