5 Amazing Health Benefits of Hot Tubs
SkincareSweat out the toxins during your next hot tub soak! Between the heat of the water and your boosted circulation, it won’t take long for you to start a light sweat while soaking in the hot tub. The steam and heat of the water can help to open up blocked pores, making it much easier to clear them out. After you exit the hot tub, we recommend heading to the shower or bath and giving your face a good scrub. This will help to fully remove dirt and oil from your skin, resulting in a bright and healthy glow!
SleepDo you have difficulty falling asleep at night? Perhaps once you fall asleep, you’re waking up regularly throughout the night? Not achieving a good night’s rest can affect your quality of life on the daily, often leading to added stress, aches and pains, irritability, weight gain, or difficulty remembering things, among others. By incorporating a 30-minute hot tub soak into your nightly routine, you can achieve better sleep patterns. Play some soothing music, add your favorite aromatherapy scents, and you will be good to go! The rocking motion of the water is exactly what your body needs to prepare for a full, uninterrupted night of sleep. The health benefits of hot tubs and swim spas just seem to keep getting better and better!
RecoveryMany physiotherapists and healthcare professionals around the world recommend soaking in a hot tub throughout the recovery process following a minor muscle or joint injury. The buoyancy of the water can help to lift pressure and weight from the affected area, allowing the surrounding muscles to really relax, easing tension and stress surrounding the area. This feeling of weightlessness combined with the soothing effects of the hot water and massage jets creates the perfect environment to soothe sore muscles, perform light stretches, and move your body without added stress. This can help improve the quality of the recovery, while also improving flexibility, balance and overall mobility. Of course, you should only use a hot tub to help aid in recovery efforts under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
HealthA hot tub can help create an ideal environment for low-impact exercise. The buoyancy of the water can help lift weight from the body, creating a more comfortable experience, while the resistance of the water still gives something to work against. Regular exercise can help improve weight maintenance initiatives, while improving balance, flexibility and overall mobility. If working out isn’t for you, incorporating light stretches or water yoga into your hot tub routine can offer their own line of benefits.
StressFeeling stressed? Jump into your hot tub for an almost-instant calming effect. The soothing sounds of nature combined with the flowing water is enough to help you reach a mental state of relaxation, transporting you far away from the causes of your stress – if only for a little while. Some of the best hot tubs can further help reduce stress with a built-in spa stereo, reflexology-inducing footwells, interior lighting for chromotherapy, and high-powered jets for hydrotherapy. Soaking in a hot tub can help boost the production of positive endorphins, which can help reduce feelings of pain and anxiety. All while boosting your circulation. By spending as little as 15-30 minutes in your hot tub on a regular basis, you can relieve emotional stress, as well as physical stress, by easing muscle tension and soothing sore joints.
