Have you ever thought of how a Hot Tub could improve your health? Hot Tubs have been recommended by doctors and sports professionals to help relieve pain and stiffness in the muscles, and are often considered beneficial for those who suffer with type 2 Diabetes, arthritis, sleep deprivation and have even been known to help with weight loss.
A benefit of the buoyancy in hot tub water is that it reduces body weight by approximately 90%, relieving pressure in joints and muscles making it easier to perform exercises, and helps with pain, fatigue and soreness of the muscles. Heat warms up joints and decreases swelling, then as the body registers temperature change the central nervous system becomes depressed contributing to muscle relaxation and temporarily relieving chronic pain. Regular use of Hot Tubs helps to keep joints moving, restores and preserves strength and flexibility, helps restore the full range of motion and protects joints from further damage.
A dip a day helps keep insomnia away! It has been found that sleep deepens as the body temperature falls. As a result some medical experts recommend that anyone wanting to induce sleep – especially those being kept awake by pain – soak in water at 38C about two hours before bedtime. So combined with the fact that a soak in a tub alleviates body tension and provides a natural remedy (unlike medicine and alcohol which make you feel groggy and have other adverse side effects), you can’t fail to have a good night’s sleep!
It has also been shown that 20 minutes in a Hot Tub helps to relieve high blood pressure, headaches and chronic pain due to stress. Muscular relaxation occurs when warm blood reaches deep into the muscles. This relaxation effect helps to deaden muscle pain by easing any pinching of nerves or blood vessels and by helping the muscle rid itself of lactic acid and other metabolic wastes.
Finally, if you’re still not convinced, possibly the greatest benefit of all is that Hot Tubs provide an ideal place to relax with your friends and family. You will soon find that your children or loved ones find the whole Hot Tub experience amazing, enjoy beautiful moments together!
