Hot Tub Health Benefits You’ll Love
Are you considering investing in a hot tub?
In that case, you’ll love the amazing health benefits that come along with regularly sitting in a hot tub. From a better sleep at night and reduced stress, to reduced muscle tension and eased soreness in your joints, the health benefits can be felt long after you’ve exited the jet-driven water of your Sundance® Spas hot tub.
Keep reading to learn about all those benefits and more. We promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Hot tubs and spas are a great place to relax with friends and family. Imagine relaxing with them, enjoying the hot water while you sip on a drink or engage in some conversation. You can turn on the jets to make the atmosphere even more relaxing.
Sitting in a hot tub will not only relax you physically, but mentally as well. You and your friends and family can even turn a dip in the hot tub into a reflexology massage by simply placing both feet directly before the water jet’s nozzles. Human feet contain a large number of nerve-endings. Stimulating them improves one’s mood and overall well-being.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to simply unwind after a stressful day or hectic week, we encourage you to do so. You can take it all the calming sounds of nature, right in the comfort of your personal backyard oasis.
Aches & Pains
Relaxing in a hot tub has been shown to provide an effective and simple treatment for painful joints and aching muscles. A therapeutic water-based technique known as hydrotherapy is the root of this healing and relaxation.
Here’s how it works:
Hydrotherapy utilizes a combination of buoyancy, heat, and massage. The buoyancy lifts pressure from your body so that the temperature can help your joints and muscles to really relax, without added weight thanks to gravity. Since your body finally has a chance to relax, free of added pressure, the effect that the powerful jets have on your body is amplified.
In Sundance® Spas specifically, the jets are strategically placed throughout the interior of the tub. This is so that they’re in the perfect spot to apply continuous pressure to stress-prone areas such as the neck, upper back, and shoulders.
Engaging in hydrotherapy sessions on a regular basis can help ease muscle tension and soothe tender joints, along with reducing stress, improving circulation, better sleep patterns, and even improving the recovery process following a physical injury.
Better Sleep Patterns
A better sleep is something that most of us can benefit from! In this day and age, it’s hard to get even six hours of sleep at night, never mind the recommended daily dose of eight to ten!
That’s where relaxing in a hot tub comes into play. Incorporating a hot tub soak for as little as 20 minutes as a part of your bedtime routine can greatly help improve your sleep patterns. This is due to a few combined factors.
When you aren’t feeling as stressed, physically and/or mentally, chances are you’re going to have an easier time falling asleep. You’ll have less on your mind, and you won’t be as motivated to focus on it while you’re headed to sleep.
Less Muscle Tension
When your body is tense or in pain, it can be hard to get comfortable. Simply put: by relaxing in a hot tub, you can improve the way you feel physically, so you can get comfortable and fall asleep, enjoying a longer and uninterrupted night of sleep.
The rocking motion combined with the heat of your hot tub water is the perfect remedy to help you prepare for bed. Turn up the jets, put on some soothing music, add your favorite aromatherapy scents and enjoy a relaxing soak before bed.
The water inside the spa can help create a rise in body temperature, dilating the blood vessels, increasing blood flow, and, therefore, improving blood circulation. This improvement of circulation goes hand-in-hand with the natural production of positive endorphins.
These endorphins are notorious for helping improve feelings of both pain and anxiety. When combined with an improved circulation, there’s no telling how good you’ll feel.
Eased Symptoms of Arthritis
Hot tubs are especially beneficial to those who suffer from arthritis.
Not only because they improve blood circulation, but because they also improve joint movement and lessen joint pain. The buoyancy of the water makes it the ideal environment in which to relieve the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.
Water provides an ideal and gentle setting for a low-impact exercise that can help stretch, move, and strengthen joints and muscles for people with arthritis. The water provides the joints with support, encouraging free movement. It offers a little resistance, helping in building muscle strength. The massaging action from the jets also helps to relax tightened muscles.
