Hot Tub Health Benefits: Hydrotherapy

Hot tubs and spas not only provide a luxurious spot to relax after a long day, they also provide a number of health benefits. Advanced hydrotherapy and water jet massage have always been an integral part of hot tub technology. Most modern hot tubs feature powerful jets that can deliver invigorating massages to sore muscles while also easing aching joints.


Hot Tubs Can Ease Muscle and Joint Pain

One of the most widely known benefits of having a hot tub is muscle relaxation. Buoyancy, heat, and massage work together to create a relaxing and soothing hot tub experience. The heat elevates the body temperature which results in the dilatation of the blood vessels, increasing blood circulation. Buoyancy, on the other hand, reduces weight bearing effects of gravity which provides a gentle relief from joint and muscle pressure. Hot tub jets provide massage action that provides a perfect combo of warm water and air through jet nozzles that gently loosen tight muscles.


Hot Tubs Can Help Manage Arthritis' Symptoms

The heat from the hot tub can also relieve muscle aches and help with joint pain from arthritis. Sitting in the hot tub, you can adjust the power and direction of the hydrotherapy jets to target your most painful areas.

Most cases of Arthritis involve the following symptoms: pain and stiffness, swelling, and even loss of joint movement or function. A common symptom relief intervention for people with Arthritis is soaking in a warm hot tub. This is one of the most non-invasive ways to manage and minimize pain, discomfort and further joint and muscle damage - plus it is safe and effective!

The Arthritis Foundation strongly recommends soaking in warm water. "The research shows our ancestors got it right. It makes you feel better. It makes the joints looser. It reduces pain and it seems to have a somewhat prolonged effect that goes beyond the period of immersion," Bruce E. Becker, MD explained. And if you suffer from arthritis pain, you probably already know this to be true!

Hot Tubs Can Promote Better Sleep

Soaking in the hot tub is an effective precursor to a restful sleep. It can lower stress levels, which is one of the biggest deterrents to a good night's sleep.  Again the heat, buoyancy and massage alleviate pressure on muscles and joints - all causing a great full-body relaxation.

To use your hot tub to improve sleep, take a good soak in the tub each night just before going to bed, letting go from the stress of the day as you relax. You'll be amazed at how quickly your body responds to this new routine.
