Hot tub spa water treatment has long been known to be beneficial for our health. Egyptians used hot baths to invoke relaxation and ease pain as early as 2000 B.C. In Ancient Greece they even used natural hot springs as hospitals. Medical research shows that hot tub therapy does provide safe and effective health benefits, so these ancient cultures really were on to something.
Reduce stress and sleep better
Spa water treatment will help you relax, physically as well as mentally. Invite your family and friends over and have a chilled out chat while the hot tub’s jets give you all a relaxing massage.
How about getting reflexology massage in your own home? Just place your feet in front of the jets in your plunge bath. Your feet contain thousands of nerve endings, and stimulating them can help to improve your overall well-being and mood.
If you’re having trouble sleeping you should get in the hot tub before you go to bed to sleep more soundly. The hot water will help to relax your body and the increase in body temperature will help you fall asleep quicker. If you just have a soak in a regular bath tub, the water will gradually cool down, whereas the water in your hot tub stays warm all the time.
Happy heart and joints
We all know that having a high blood pressure is bad, and although a lot of us want to get better at exercising doing this can often raise our blood pressure as well as out heart rate. Jacuzzi spa water treatment will raise your heart rate to a similar level as physical exercise but without raising your blood pressure. Like aerobic exercise it raises your heart rate and improves blood circulation, but without the sweat and risk of high blood pressure.
The improvement in circulation isn’t just good for your heart but also your joints. People suffering from arthritis could really benefit from regular soaks in a tub of warm water. The buoyancy of the warm water encourages freer movement because it supports and lessens stress on the joints. Key elements to the well-being of arthritis sufferers is warmth and massage, a hot tub provides both.
No need for a masseuse
If you suffer from sore muscles a dip in your Jacuzzi can do you a world of good. Getting a hot tub spa water treatment will make your body release endorphins, the body’s natural feel good chemical, also known as a natural opiate. Not only do endorphins make you feel good, they also block pain, which in turn will help you relax and let your body heal if you’ve got sore muscles from exerting your body, along with all of your built up stress. All without the expense of a masseuse or therapist.
