Health Benefits of Hot Tubs and Spas

hot tub and spa

A hot tub and spa can be used for various reasons, ranging from relaxation to entertainment to providing significant health benefits. A hot tub at home can provide tremendous health and wellness from head to toe. There are many therapeutic benefits, such as physical and emotional stress relief, relieving muscle pain and much more.

The following are the health benefits of hot tubs and spas:

Improves sleep

A 15-minute soak in a hot tub or spa for about 90 minutes before going to sleep can lead to a more peaceful and deeper sleep. A soak in the hot tub will help you relax and will re-set your body and induce the body's natural sleep mechanism. This makes it easier for you to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.

Relieves stress

Soaking in the hot tub stimulates the body’s natural endorphin. The heat improves blood circulation and the therapeutic massage releases the tension in the muscles. It can provide relief to sore muscles, headaches, fatigue and eases the pressure on muscles and joints. It can also elevate your mood and thus relieve stress.

Relieves arthritis pain

Immersing in a hot tub raises your body temperature which causes your blood vessels to dilate and increases blood circulation. It keeps the joints moving, and helps build muscle strength and flexibility, thus protecting your joints from further damage. It is a safe and effective way to minimize pain for those suffering from arthritis.

Reduces pain and improves circulation

Immersing in a hot tub increases your heart rate and raises body temperature and improves circulation throughout the body. This helps to relieve sore muscles, headaches and pain.
