The Health Benefits of Hot Tubs
Looking to have a hot tub or spa installed in your home? You may be considering it for relaxation or entertaining guests, maybe even as a feature for your back yard patio. Did you know that owning a spa can also be good for your health? Here are some of the reasons that adding a spa to your home can actually improve your health.
Arthritis and Muscle Pain
Do you suffer from arthritis pain or chronic back pain? Then spending time in a hot tub every day can help to ease the symptoms of the pain. Some medical experts believe that it can even lead to more mobility and improved range of motion.
The hot water increases blood flow to the areas of your body that needs it most. That increased blood flow helps your muscles and joints recover faster and more effectively. This promotes joint and muscle recovery and improves flexibility.
Do you find yourself having a hard time falling asleep at night? Your mind races as you think about your day, or possibly the days to come, and you can’t seem to shut it off. This inability to relax affects a good number of people. Some studies suggest that spending time in a hot tub can help you to relax and get a better night sleep.
Soaking in a hot tub a couple of hours before bedtime tells your body to lower its internal temperature. This helps you fall asleep faster and more easily. It can also help you fall into a deeper sleep, limiting the number of times that you wake up during the night.
Improved Heart Health
What does your body experience when it exercises? You heart rate increases, your muscles warm up and your body sweats. These are all things that can happen while you soak in a hot tub as well. The side effect to this is that while soaking in a hot tub, your blood pressure does not increase, which can be great if you suffer from high blood pressure.
Regular hot tub use can give you some of the same benefits of exercise while putting less stress on your heart.
Low Impact Exercise
Many of us would like to exercise but simply can’t due to physical conditions that affect our bodies. A hot tub can provide a great place to get a low impact workout.
Swimming is one of the best ways to get a full body work out without putting stress on your joints. Many spas have a setting that will allow you to simulate swimming.
Even if your model doesn’t provide you with a swim setting, doing simple exercises while sitting or standing will put less stress on your joints than doing them out of the hot tub.
