New Research: Getting into Hot water is Good for You!

New Research: Getting into Hot Water is Good for You!


Research has found that soaking in hot water 90 minutes before going to bed improves sleep quality. Discover why Hot Tubs are so important & how to use them in your night-time routine.


Recent research from scientists at the University of Texas at Austin has found that soaking in hot water 90 minutes before going to bed helps you get a better night’s sleep. So, what’s the science behind this?


By soaking in a Hot Tub 90 minutes before bed, you perfectly align what’s called your Circadian rhythm. This means that your body will be cooling down at exactly the time that you will be getting into bed, helping you to relax and fall into a deeper sleep. According to the researchers, “The temperature cycle leads the sleep cycle and is an essential factor in achieving rapid sleep onset and high efficiency sleep.”

How important is Good-Quality Sleep?

I’m sure that everyone clutching a cup of coffee at 9am every morning will already know how important a good night’s sleep is, but it’s also so much more than that!

Improve Attention & concentration

Getting enough high-quality sleep will keep your mind focused and sharp – being vitally important for big decisions, driving, or operating heavy machinery.


Memory Retention

You need sleep to rest and rebuild your mind as well as your body. While you sleep, your brain will organise and process all the information you have taken on over the day, converting them into long-term memories.

Reduce Blood Pressure

Before you wake up, your body will increase your blood pressure to prepare you. If you’re kept awake too often, your body cannot compensate for this rise in blood pressure, so it may remain higher than usual – increasing your risk for stroke and coronary heart disease.

How do Hot Tubs improve sleep?

We all know that Hot Tubs are literally tubs of hot water, being perfectly equipped to align your circadian rhythm for better sleep. That’s not the only way Hot Tubs can help you get a better kip!


With strategically placed water jets, our Hot Tubs are designed with the ultimate massage in mind. By receiving regular hydrotherapy massage, you relieve muscular tension to keep you comfortable while you sleep.


Having been used for centuries, aromatherapy has many reported physical & mental health benefits. Lavender has long been known for calming your mind and relieving stress, as well as Chamomile. By clearing your mind before you go to bed, you will drift off into a better night’s sleep.

Relax in a lounger

Before you drift off to dreamland, spend your evening soak in a Hot Tub lounger for maximum relaxation!

To find the right lounger for you, make sure you wet test your preferred model. Loungers come in all shapes and sizes so it’s important to find the right fit for your body type, so you don’t float out of the seat.


Sleep is vital to proper mental and physical function – ensure you get the best possible night’s sleep with a regular evening Hot Tub soak 90 minutes before bed!

A review of the Regency Prince Hot Tub

We have just installed a Regency Prince Hot Tub for Phil Jennings in Kingswinford.

Kingswinford is a town located in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands.

We asked Phil to give us an appraisal of both his experience with Award Leisure Birmingham and his new Regency Prince Hot Tub.

Regency Prince Hot Tub

I am very happy with my Regency Prince Hot Tub. We had talked about getting a hot tub for years as I fit Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms and lots of my customers have a Hot Tub on their patio. One of my friends is an electrician and he said that the hydrotherapy benefits have been really helpful in tackling his back problems. As you can imagine years of fitting kitchens etc have taken its toll on my back and shoulders.

I did lots of research online in to Hot Tubs. I saw that the Regency Prince is a What Spa magazine winner and that got me researching Coast Spas in general. I liked the fact that they are made in Canada so much better for our climate than a cheap Chinese or American Spa.

regency Prince Hot Tub

Don’t get me wrong I love the social side of the Hot Tub but what was especially important to me was the wellness aspect and Coast Spas seemed to offer it all.  I had pretty much decided that I wanted a Coast Spa before I went shopping in store.

Free Hot Tub Buyers Guide


I visited Award Leisure Birmingham and met Simon. I was impressed with his product knowledge and decided to go ahead and order the Regency Prince. It is a large Hot tub and was the size and depth I wanted and had all the features that I needed. This included 50 jets, waterline lighting, music….it is fully loaded.

I felt that although I went over my initial budget, the Regency Prince is a cut above the rest and worth the extra, I felt that I got great quality at great value for money

So far I have used it nearly everyday and it has already made a huge difference to my quality of life with my shoulder and back problems.

So why choose the Regency Prince?

Regency Spas Prince 7 Person Hot Tub has been our best selling hot tub for 20 years. We guarantee that the Prince will be the perfect hot tub for all of the family because this all seated hot tub has a variety of seats for everyone, no matter how small or tall. With a combination of comfortable jacuzzi massage therapy seats and contoured hydrotherapy seating, you can relax, soothe aching muscles or party with family and friends by having your own hot tub jacuzzi at home. This Canadian hot tub is designed with 5 luxurious hydrotherapy seats and 2 higher cool down seats, each with a variation of carefully positioned powerful and very sophisticated massage jets. In particular, the 2 higher seats are perfect for the not so tall and make for very handy steps to get in and out of the hot tub.

Regency prince

Everyone can choose their favourite seat and relax in the Prince party hot tub with either a unique and different hot tub massage per seat or by diverting the flow to a central fusion of water which creates a funky geezer in the centre of the hot tub. With the added bonus of drinks holders, the Prince is the ultimate in enjoying at home indulgence with best friends; we’ve created the perfect aquatic party booth complete with VIP treatment which delivers hydrotherapy excellence without having to leave your own home.

As with all of our hot tubs made in Canada for the Canadian climate, you can be assured of the best commercial grade hot tub filtration creating the cleanest hot tub water and a fully insulated hot tub with the lowest running costs. The award winning Prince hot tub with waterfalls and lights creates a luxurious bubbling ambience to be used as a perfect social hot tub for all of the family to enjoy as well as a discreet haven for individual relaxation and rejuvenation.

This spa boasts two underwater colour changing lights which make the spa look beautiful, especially at night. As well as drinks holders perfect for socialising, two rope waterfalls, plus plush head rests in each corner seat for total neck therapy. With a range of multi-level seating this spa is perfect for all shapes and sizes, allowing for wrap around massage, and the higher seats appealing to children and those who may want to cool down quickly. Comfort, appearance and quality are certainly not compromised.
