The top 4 health benefits of hot tubs
Despite the obvious relaxation benefits, regular hot tub use also has many mental and physicals health benefits. Here are just the top 4 benefits of hot tubs:
Therapeutic pain relief
The warm water temperature of hot tubs means that it acts as a form of therapy to reduce pain. The heat can ease join and muscle pain as well as cramping, or even some relief from pain caused by more serious conditions like arthritis, sciatica and rheumatism. Sitting in the warm environment regularly can increase circulation which then relaxes muscles and can reduce any swelling, whilst the buoyancy of the water takes the pressure off of joints to support the body.
Leads to great skin
Hot tub use can also have beneficial effects for the skin. Warmth opens up the skin’s pores to allow toxins, bacteria and dirt to be released. This acts as a detox and sweats out any impurities, helping your body to complete this natural process in a more efficient way that helps your glands to do their job. As a result, your complexion will be clearer and have a healthy “glow”.
Stress relief in busy life
When life is busy and stressful, your hot tub can be an oasis of calm and relaxation. This not only provides enjoyment but can reduce the stress you feel. There are physical effects of this stress such as hormonal imbalances and other health problems, so regularly using your hot tub for downtime and as a relief from the stresses of life can be a fantastic way to help your body to relax and rejuvenate. Hydrotherapy can also help you to sleep more easily and reduce anxiety levels.
Get an immunity boost
When your body is run down, your immune system can struggle to fight infection and illnesses easily. You can become prone to viruses and feel tired and unwell. However, hot tubs can help to boost your natural immunity by improving blood circulation and cleansing your body from impurities through your skin. This means that you not only feel better, but help your body to fight infections more quickly.
