It’s nice to know it’s also useful to improve your health.
Here are 5 ways soaking in a hot tub can improve your health:
1. REDUCES STRESS
Prolonged stress can lead to chronic disease and ailments. Don’t let a string of bad days turn into a lifetime of pain and sickness. Use your Hammond Home and Leisure Spa to beat the stress! The warm water and jets work like magic on tense muscles to melt your stress away. Make sure you find the most comfortable spot in the spa and use the jets to target pain points.
2. IMPROVES SLEEP
Sleep is invaluable when it comes to staying healthy. Did you know soaking in your hot tub can improve sleep? A poll from the National Sleep Foundation shows that 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disruption more than once a week, and this number is on the rise. Studies suggest that soaking in a hot tub at a constant temperature before bedtime can ease the transition into a deeper sleep. This likely happens due to an internal temperature shift when the body’s core temperature drops after leaving water and signals it’s time to hit the sack.
3. RELIEVES ARTHRITIS PAIN
Approximately 43 million people in the United States suffer from some form of arthritis pain. The good news for those affected is that there are safe and effective ways to both minimize the discomfort and prevent further damage. According to a publication from The Arthritis Foundation, Spas, Pools, and Arthritis, “Regular sessions in your hot tub help keep joints moving. This restores and preserves strength and flexibility, and also protects your joints from further damage. Exercise can also improve a person’s coordination, endurance, and ability to perform daily tasks, and can lead to an enhanced sense of self-esteem and accomplishment. Want the best of both worlds? Try these hot tub exercises to maximize your relief and maintenance of your arthritis.
4. IMPROVES CIRCULATION
Soaking in a hot tub helps to slightly increase your heart rate and raise your body temperature, which improves circulation throughout your body. Many people suffer from poor circulation, but this is a simple way to improve it if done consistently.
5. REJUVENATES SKIN AND HAIR
Everyone wants beautiful hair and skin, right? Of course! The warm water in a hot tub causes perspiration, which can often be enough to help the body rid itself of toxins that damage skin. Time spent in a hot tub can also improve hair by reducing oil production. Learn more about how a hot tub can rejuvenate skin and hair in this helpful article from HealthGuidance.
