HOW HOT TUBS CAN HELP YOU HEAL SORE MUSCLES

Do you suffer from aches and pains?

The good news is, there are solutions available to you that don’t consist of routine appointments at the physician’s office or over-the-counter medication for pain relief. The solution you seek could be sitting right in your own backyard. If you guessed a hot tub, you’d be right! Soaking in the heat of the jet-driven water on a regular basis can do wonders for your physical and emotional health. In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at how soaking your worries away in a hot tub can help melt away muscle tension and joint pain as well.

HEAT, BUOYANCY AND MASSAGE

Have you heard about hydrotherapy? This water-based therapy has been used for thousands of years. Lucky for us you can enjoy hydrotherapy in the comfort of a modern hot tub, rather than traveling to your local hot springs.

How does hydrotherapy work?

Hydrotherapy can help to soothe your sore muscles and joints with the ultimate combination of heat, buoyancy and massage.

Temperature

First, the temperature of the water helps your body to relax. From the moment that your toes hit the warmth of the bubbly, jet-driven water, you’ll practically feel as your stress and tension begin to fade away.

Buoyancy

The buoyancy of the water can help take your levels of relaxation to the next level. The buoyancy of the water can help lift up to 90% of your body weight, relieving most of the added pressure from aching muscles and joints.

Massage

While in an environment completely geared toward healing and relaxation, the massage jets can really work their magic. Your muscles and joints are much more likely to benefit from the massaging action from the jets once they are relaxed and the tension has already started to ease. Each Sundance® Spas hot tub has built-in jets that are strategically placed throughout the spa. From each placement, the jets are able to target some of the most stress-prone areas of your body.

WATER-BASED THERAPY

Along with hydrotherapy, there are other water-based therapies that can maximize the muscle-healing benefits of your hot tub.

Some of these other therapies include:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Reflexology
  • Watsu
  • Yoga
  • Meditation

Participating in a good, long stretch can also help relieve muscle tension and soothe your sore, achy joints.

LONG-TERM RELAXATION AND STRESS RELIEF

Soaking in a hot tub can help your body feel better long after you’ve exited the crystal-clear water.

Did you know that the regular use of a hot tub can help improve your sleep patterns? Once your body begins to feel better and more relaxed, chances are you’ll find it much easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Getting in a good eight hours of sleep a night can help reduce stress and help you live a more energetic lifestyle.

Once your body begins to feel better on a more regular basis, that will be one less thing for you to worry about. Mental and emotional stress can sometimes show itself physically. For instance, if your shoulders grow tense when you are stressed, this can lead to longer-lasting muscle tension, thus causing aches and pains. When you’re feeling stressed about how tense and sore your body feels, it becomes a never-ending circle. With that stress lifted from your shoulders, you’ll be feeling much better in no time at all!
