The Health Benefits of Hot Tubs

Are you looking for a healthy and easily accessible way to relax? Have you considered adding a hot tub to your Houston home or renovating an existing custom spa? Hot tubs provide a serene atmosphere with versatile uses from entertaining guests to relaxing in solitude. Owning a custom spa is a real joy, and they are the perfect complement to any swimming pool. This could be the addition that you need to complete your outdoor space and have your own secluded oasis.

Hot tubs are not simply beautiful jewels that enhance the appearance of a backyard—they offer the user a multitude of health benefits. In fact, some medical practices use hydrotherapy to help their patients. This is particularly common in naturopathy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, and methods include the use of water jets, massage and temperature changes, very similar to what one experiences when they use a custom spa. Here are some of the ways in which having a hot tub can benefit your health.

Improve Your Sleep Habits

Millions of people in the United States struggle with sleep apnea, insomnia and poor sleep habits that leave them feeling absolutely exhausted. Some recent studies conducted by healthcare professionals have suggested that a nice soak in a hot tub before going to bed for the evening can help an individual achieve a deeper sleep.

Relieve Stress

When you soak in a hot tub, your body temperature rises, your blood flow increases and the therapeutic massage elements sooth your aching muscles. All of these combined actions encourage the release of endorphins—your body’s biological output of relaxation itself. Stress is a quiet killer that can impact multiple areas of life. The headaches, chronic exhaustion, high blood pressure and other symptoms of stress can lead to more serious health implications if they are prolonged. Owning a spa will help you to destress both physically and psychologically.

Avoid Muscle Soreness

Soaking in a hot tub will reduce your muscle soreness. This is particularly beneficial if you are an athlete or participate in any kind of physical activity that often leaves you tired and in pain. Skip the over-the-counter pain medications and opt for a soak in your custom spa instead.

Decrease Knee and Back Pain

Surgeries on the back and knees are some of the most common outpatient procedures performed in operating rooms across America. That also means that there are hundreds of thousands of patients who are experiencing chronic pain. If you are one of them, owning a spa can help. As previously mentioned, a hot tub encourages blood circulation by increasing your body temperature. This brings a rush of oxygen and nutrients throughout your body to promote the healing process. The gentle massage jets work with this physiological reaction to drastically decrease pain that you may have in your knees or back.
