Hot Tub Health Benefits

Pain Relief

Heat, massage, and buoyancy work together to create a soothing environment for aching muscles and swollen joints. A dip in a hot tub provides relief from muscle aches as well as the symptoms of arthritis, lower back pain, and numerous forms of chronic pain.

When our joints are immersed in water, the internal pressure is reduced, making the body feel light and loose. Buoyancy eases any joint and muscle pressure that has been building up. Then the heat and massage work together to work out knots in the muscles. Best of all, the body releases endorphins, a natural painkiller and mood booster, while relaxing in the heat.

Stress Relief

A hot tub is the perfect escape from life’s worries. Have a long talk with a loved one, or take a little me time under the stars. Spa therapy is clinically proven to reduce stress and improve wellbeing.

The hot water relieves muscle tension and coaxes the body into a relaxed state. Safely away from work and distractions, you can give yourself permission to let go and enjoy the outdoor air. 

Improved Sleep

An evening dip in a hot tub is proven to improve sleep, both helping people to fall asleep sooner and bringing them into a deeper REM sleep later into the night.

Relaxing in a hot tub is a non-medicinal sleep solution, meaning it comes with zero side effects.

Injury Recovery

A dip in a hot tub doesn’t just relieve the pain from an injury, it also helps to accelerate the healing process. The heat increases blood flow which helps nutrients and white blood cells to circulate faster. The increased blood flow also reduces swelling, helping white blood cells to access injured areas.

A hot tub is also the perfect place for gentle stretches and exercises, bringing strength and movement back to an injured limb or joint affected by arthritis.

Heart Condition Improvement

Relaxing in a hot tub is often recommended to help treat and prevent heart problems including high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Blood pressure decreases while blood flow increases while in hot water.

While there are numerous benefits to a soak in a hot tub, please remember that hot tubs are not for everyone. When in doubt, please check with your doctor.
