If you suffer from aches, pains or injuries and you find yourself regularly seeking recovery from either the gym or specialist treatments, it might be worth investing in your very own hot tub. There are a wealth of benefits to having your own hot tub for your physical health and also the convenience of having regular hydrotherapy treatments in your own back garden!
How Can A Hot Tub Help With My Pain?
If you suffer from physical pain in your muscles, joints, back and/or other areas, you might find that hydrotherapy treatments help to relieve the pain and stress in those areas.
Hydrotherapy is a popular treatment that has been widely proven to help ease pain, promote recovery and allow the body to relax. The buoyancy of the water can provide automatic relief as it takes the weighted pressure off stiff joints. With a hot tub, you then have the relief of the temperature-controlled heated water that helps to soothe the body and allow you to relax. Then you have the added features of the powerful jets that can target specific muscle groups and provide an invigorating massage.
We’ve found that using a hot tub on a regular basis for as little as thirty minutes can help to potentially ease pain, relax muscles and aid in your overall health and wellbeing.
Is It Worth Investing In A Hot Tub?
If you have a gym membership because you regularly use the pool or jacuzzi to help your pain management, then you might find that a hot tub can be a good investment for your health. Swimming can help with easing pain, because of the buoyancy of the water, however this might not be something you want to commit to on a multi-day basis to help with your pain.
If your gym also has a jacuzzi, what we have found is that these types of hot tubs don’t provide the same level of massage treatment as your own range of spas. The jets usually create a more “bubbly” effect rather than targeting muscle groups and helping to treat your pain.
This is before we then factor in the costs to your time and money. You will have a monthly membership fee and transport to and from the gym – contributing to fuel costs or bus tickets. Then we have the time it takes to get to the gym to start your session and then the time to get back from the gym and on with your day.
If you were to invest in your own hot tub, you would have regular payments for your hot tub and the small energy costs to keep it running, which are already cheaper than your gym membership and transportation costs. Then you have the convenience of walking into your back garden and starting your hydrotherapy session instantly! You can also completely relax and let the hot tub work on your body without being surrounded by strangers (no one likes the pool and jacuzzi at peak times!). Because it’s so convenient having your own hot tub, you can then use your spa as often as you need!
A hot tub is an investment, just like your gym membership. However, it’s worth comparing the benefits of both to see how you could improve your health and wellbeing.
