Health Benefits of Hot Tubs

There are many ways to get yourself fit and healthy: the right diet, the proper exercise, a good amount of sleep, and staying away from vices. Relaxation is also important to get rid of stress. And one way to relax is by enjoying time in a hot tub after a tiring day at work.

Aside from the relaxation that it provides, soaking yourself in a hot tub also helps in relieving aches in your body, relaxing your muscles, and recovery your overall strength after strenuous activity. It is called hydrotherapy which refers to using water to relieve pain.

You can use your little warm water paradise any time of the year, even in the middle of the winter season, with a custom hot tub cover from Be-Lite Aluminum Spa Covers. We make your new spa cover to give the best protection to your spa from rain, snow, and any other debris, as well as a safety barrier against children and pets accidentally getting into the spa. A spa is your investment, and we help you safeguard it.

Five Health Benefits of Daily Hot Tub Use

While hydrotherapy does not bring miracle cures, it can be used together with other forms of treatment to ease pain, reduce stress and bring comfort to your daily life. However, hydrotherapy is not recommendable for some cases such as fever, hypertension, heart diseases, and cancer. That is why consulting your doctor is important before starting your hydrotherapy session.

The following lists the five main health benefits of using your hot tub every day:

1. Relieves lower back pain and improve motion

If you are engaged in an occupation that involves a lot of hard physical labor and risks to injury, it can cause your lower back to experience constant pains. These pains can cripple your lifestyle. Soaking in a hot tub can help in easing muscle pains and relaxing them.

2. Relieves symptoms from arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia

Arthritis brings pain and stiffness to the joints, while fibromyalgia causes musculoskeletal pains, which can reduce your quality of life. The benefits of the gentle and soothing jets of warm water from your hot tub will help in significantly reducing such symptoms, which allow you to walk with less pain and to enjoy better sleep.

3. Reduces anxiety and stress

The routines of everyday life can be a source of anxiety and stress, whether it’s running a household, commuting, dealing with office work, or having a relationship or money issues. Wouldn’t it be nice to let them all go with just soaking yourself in your hot tub? Let all the soothing jets of warm water loose all your tense muscles, help your body relax and make yourself feel better.

4. Improves your range of motion

Here’s a fact: as we grow older, our bodies slow down and our range of motion decreases. This means that our bodies tend to get stiff more quickly than before. Soaking yourself in a hot tub will help in restoring lost flexibility and in delaying the natural process of stiffening due to age.

5. Enhances your sleep cycles

Many people get little sleep for a variety of reasons. When they do get some sleep, it won’t always be of good quality. When we get little sleep, it results in increased levels of stress and anxiety and engenders frustrations. Not to mention that lack of sleep weakens your immune system. A nice long soak at the end of a stressful day relaxes your body and melts away all your troubles, which encourages better sleep.
