How to relieve pain and improve the quality of life with your hot tub
The best way to unwind after a long and busy day is to soak in your hot tub. The perfect hot tub routine provides benefits beyond relaxation. Easing pain and stiffness, helping muscles recover after exercise and providing temporary relief from symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. A hot tub can alleviate these symptoms, whether it is discomfort from injury or sickness, stiffness or soreness. With a hot tub at home, it's easy to customise a routine to suit your needs and deliver the well-being and vitality you need to live life to its fullest.
Benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy offers an alternative therapy method for temporary pain relief of ailments such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, muscle and joint pain, fibromyalgia and aches and discomfort following exercise. When soaking in a hot tub, the effect of buoyancy allows for a period of recovery from stress on muscles and joints. Water immersion helps the relaxation of both the mind and body, contributing to your recovery. Warm water immersion also reduces muscle spasms and diminishes the experience of pain. Owning a hot tub regularly relieves mental and physical tension and improves the quality of life in the long term.
Finding the right temperature
Hot tubs are all about personalisation. It is best to start at a lower temperature (for example, between 36C and 37C) and adjust to a level that is right for you; however, exceeding 40C is not recommended. The key is to find the temperature where your muscles are relaxed without overheating.
Using the water for increased comfort
Low impact exercises are a great way to stimulate your muscles and joints in a hot tub. Taking up only 15 to 20 minutes of your time, you can become more flexible, reduce injury chances, and improve mental health. Moreover, the buoyancy of the water takes some of the weight and pressure off your joints, granting easier and more pain-free exercise to stay fit.
It is essential to stay hydrated when relaxing in a hot tub. Warm water raises body temperature, particularly with light stretching or exercise. When soaking, ensure you drink plenty of water to regulate your body temperature and further aid your recovery. Hydrotherapy is the best way to help muscles recover and stunt arthritis, easily integrating into your routine. No matter how busy you are, there is always time for a warm soak in your hot tub. Muscle relaxation, comfort and wellness are simple with your hot tub, allowing you to stick to your fitness goals for as long as you wish.
