As well as being a relaxing escape from the world, climbing into your own bubbly hot tub can have a range of potential health benefits. From improving sleep, to relieving pain in muscles and joints, hot tubs can provide a powerful hydrotherapy experience to improve your physical and mental health. So step in, turn on the jets, and let’s explore some of the reasons that a hot tub can be good for your health.
Soak Your Stress Away
This one might seem obvious, but soaking in a hot tub after a long day can help to lower stress and anxiety levels. Studies have shown that immersing yourself in warm water for a period of time causes our bodies to react in the same way it reacts to meditation and other states of calmness.
When it comes to hot tubs, the hot water, coupled with the powerful jets can help relieve tension in the muscles which allows your mind to unwind and fully relax.
Your body can also build up signs of stress throughout the day, both physically and mentally: muscle tension, irritability, mental and physical exhaustion. Spending time in a hot tub at the end of the day can help these signs of stress melt away, relax tense muscles and clear your mind.
You can also help create an even more relaxing environment with your hot tub by using dim lighting, adding aromatherapy and playing relaxing music.
Improve Your Sleep
Multiple studies have shown that soaking in a hot bath or tub before you go to bed can significantly improve your quality of sleep.
One study explains that immersing yourself in warm water before going to bed can increase your body temperature by one or two degrees. Then, when you leave the hot tub, your body temperature will begin to decrease. It’s this dramatic decrease in temperature that helps your body to fall into a deep and refreshing sleep.
Studies recommend that you should soak in the warm water for 20 to 30 minutes at least 2 hours before you plan on going to bed. This will help you get a more optimal sleep.
