Health Benefits from Soaking in a Hot TubPosted: April 22, 2022
You’re probably already aware of how soothing a good long soak in a Jacuzzi® can be, but what you may not know is just how many health benefits hot tubs have to offer.
From pain relief to stress relief, to help with exercise recovery—your spa can do a lot for you. Maybe more than you know.
That’s why we’ve created this list of some of the major benefits you’ll enjoy when you own a hot tub from Sundance® Spas, Nordic Hot Tubs, or any of the other great brands Aqua Quip has to offer.
One of the biggest selling points of a Jacuzzi® is that it’s the ultimate way to de-stress. But the long-term health benefits of all that stress relief are probably a lot greater than most people realize.
Stress can be a contributing factor in a tremendous variety of health issues, from arthritis and skin conditions to heart problems and depression. In fact, stress has been linked to the top six leading causes of death in America today. Simply soaking in your hot tub once in a while may help you avoid all of them.
There are various types of pain caused by inflammation and stiffness in the body, particularly if that pain is coming from the joints or the muscles. Hydrotherapy from DreamMaker Hot Tubs, and all of the hot tub brands we offer, can help reduce inflammation and stiffness and relieve that pain in multiple ways.
The heat can help relax the body, the massaging jets can reduce stiffness, and the support from the water can reduce stress on the joints and allow for greater relaxation.
The reduction in inflammation that a hot tub can provide won’t just feel great while you’re in the tub. It can improve your flexibility and range of motion long after you’ve gotten out, which is great for anyone who suffers from stiffness in their joints.
You can take this health benefit a step further by using the buoyancy you experience in your hot tub to do some light stretches and further increase your flexibility.
Hot tubs can be the ultimate tool for those who are into health and wellness. Following up your exercise routine with a long soak can help relax your body and soothe any soreness you may be experiencing.
The jets can serve as an in-home automated massage therapist and effectively target those aching muscles. They may even help get you ready for the next workout that much faster. Exercise recovery in a hot tub can help reduce the risk of injury, as well, as it increases flexibility and reduces stress on your joints.
You know now that the relaxation that hot tubs provide can help you avoid stress-related heart issues. But that’s not the only benefit they can offer for your cardiovascular health. Your hot tub can provide you with heat therapy, which can lower your blood pressure, reduce strain on your heart, and help it remain healthy.
If you’re someone who suffers from insomnia or just has an erratic sleep pattern that’s affecting your life negatively, hot tubs may be able to provide a solution. All of that stress relief, relaxation, pain relief, and extra flexibility can help ease your body and mind and set you up for a deeper and more meaningful night’s rest.
Hot water can even induce drowsiness, so make sure not to fall asleep right there in the tub!
