The Health Benefits of Soaking in a Hot Tub

Taking a relaxing soak in hot water is an ancient practice. Hydrotherapy has been utilized for centuries by ancient cultures throughout history, whether via naturally occurring thermal springs or elaborately-constructed bath houses. Today, you can reap the health benefits of hydrotherapy in your own backyard with a Jacuzzi® or Beachcomber® hot tub.

Whether for relaxation, recovery from injuries or relief from ailments, here are some of the most amazing benefits of soaking in a hot tub.

Stress Relief

A number of life’s facets, including work, money, and hectic schedules, can result in high levels of stress. According to a report by the Mayo Clinic, long-term activation of your body’s stress-response system can disrupt your body’s natural processes and increase your chances of developing health problems. However, just 10 minutes in a Jacuzzi® hot tub can relieve stress and headaches by increasing blood flow and relaxing muscles.

Lower Back Pain Relief

Lower back pain, whether acute or chronic, can significantly impact your quality of life. It can make performing everyday activities a difficult and painful experience. Studies have shown that people living with chronic lower back pain who underwent hydrotherapy treatment saw a reduction in their symptoms.

Relief from Insomnia

If you suffer from insomnia, soaking in a Jacuzzi® or Beachcomber® Hot Tub can put you out like a light. Immersing your body in warm water relieves tension and stimulates circulation. As your body cools down after a hot tub session, your brain receives subconscious messages that induce sleep.

Relief from Sore Muscles

The day following an intense workout session can bring muscle soreness. Soaking in warm water after exercising helps your muscles recover for the next day by removing lactic acid from muscle fibers. In addition, the natural buoyancy of water takes the pressure off your joints, allowing your muscles to fully relax.

Relief from Arthritis Pain

Arthritis stiffens joints and causes pain when carrying out even the simplest daily activities. Heated hydrotherapy, such as is offered by a Beachcomber® or Jacuzzi® hot tub, increases circulation, promoting muscle growth and increasing range of motion.

Relief from Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia affects the entire body in a myriad of ways. The condition is often accompanied by sweeping musculoskeletal discomfort and can negatively affect your mood, energy level and sleep habits. Hydrotherapy for those coping with fibromyalgia fosters relaxation and mitigates muscle tension, reducing pain and stiffness. In turn, there is relief for sleeplessness with the reduction of daily fatigue.

Quality Time with Family and Friends

Let’s not forget the greatest benefit of all – making memories with your family and friends.

Note: Always remember to secure your hot tub cover after each use to ensure that your water is always clean and ready for soaking.
