How Hot Tub Therapy Works
Have you ever considered that regular relaxation in a hot tub can have positive effects on your health? The practice of hydrotherapy, a water-based therapeutic technique, can provide a range of health benefits. By combining heat, massage and buoyancy, hot tubs create a weightless environment that can help relax and heal the body, improve circulation, and release physical tension.
Even 15 minutes of soaking in a hot tub each day can provide the healing benefits of hydrotherapy. Discover how hydrotherapy can change your life by alleviating pain, enhancing mobility, reducing stress, improving sleep patterns, and more!
The health benefits
Who Can Benefit from Hydrotherapy?
While hydrotherapy is commonly used for the luxurious and relaxing experience that it creates, it can also lead to healing and relief for many who have certain health conditions. In fact, many hot tub owners purchase their hot tub with symptom management and whole-body relaxation in mind.
Those with the following may benefit from hydrotherapy, under direction from a physician:
- Back pain
Improving Your Health with Spa Hydrotherapy
Could your health and wellness stand to benefit from the healing power of hydrotherapy? Relaxing in a hot tub for as little as 15-20 minutes several times a week, if not every day, can help to relax your muscles, boost your circulation and ease the stress that is both physical and emotional. These healing effects can lead you toward better health and wellness.
Disclaimer: Consult a physician to ensure your best health before using a hot tub to improve or treat an existing health condition or injury.
Aches and Pains
The buoyancy of the water lifts up to 90% of your body weight, creating a feeling of weightlessness. The warm water further helps your body to relax, while massaging from the jets works to ease joint pain and reduce muscle tension.
Soaking in warm water raises your internal temperature, acting as an artificial fever. This process tricks your body into thinking that it needs to create antibodies to fight off an infection or virus, in turn strengthening your immune system.
Do you have poor sleep patterns? Soaking in a hot tub can help to prepare you for a full and uninterrupted night of sleep through relaxation and stress relief. Simply add 20-30 minutes of hydrotherapy to your day or bedtime routine.
Stress can manifest in both a physical and emotional way through feeling overwhelmed, exhaustion or overexerting your body. Soaking in a hot tub can help you to relax and let go of built-up tension, leading to the gradual release of your stress.
