Custom inground spas give their owners a luxurious opportunity to relax and destress every day, and we all know the toll that stress can take on our overall health. But beyond reducing stress, the soothing jets and warm water of a hot tub or spa can provide a number of other important health benefits. The following are just a few of the advantages of warm water hydrotherapy.
Hot Tubs Can Ease Muscle and Joint Pain
One of the most widely known inground spa health benefits is muscle and joint relaxation. Buoyancy, heat, and massage work together to ease the aches and pains that come from everyday living. The heat elevates the body temperature which dilates blood vessels and increases blood circulation. At the same time, buoyancy reduces the weight bearing effects of gravity to relieve some of the pressure on joints and muscles. Of course, all this happens while the hot tub jets are delivering a soothing massage that eases aches and gently loosens tight muscles.
Spas Can Help Manage Arthritis Symptoms
The heat from the hot tub or spa can also help relieve aches and pains that come from arthritis. In fact, 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..”
Warm water therapy is one of the most non-invasive ways to manage and minimize pain and discomfort – plus it is safe and effective with zero side effects!
Spas Can Promote Better Sleep
Stress is one of the biggest deterrents to a good night’s sleep. At the end of a long day, stress hormones still lingering in your body can make it difficult to settle down and fall asleep. The deep relaxation of an inground spa helps soothe your body and mind so it’s easier to wind down before bed.
