ArthritisIf you’re suffering from arthritis just like millions around the world, and are looking for a solution, a hot tub might be what you are looking for. The heat of the jet-driven water can help to improve your circulation and the natural production of feel-good endorphins. The heat combined with buoyancy and massage can also create a more comfortable environment for your sore, arthritic joints, allowing you to stretch and move your body easier than on dry land. This added movement can help to improve flexibility, mobility and flexibility, ultimately helping improve overall quality of life and reduce risk of injury.
HealingSuffering from an injury or chronic pain? A routine soak in the hot tub might be just what your body needs. The heat of the water can help to improve your circulation, helping oxygen better reach the affected area(s), helping them heal. Not only that, the buoyancy of the water can lift up to 90% of pressure from your muscles and joints, helping achieve a feeling of weightlessness. This provides your body with a well-deserved break, so your muscles and joints can really relax and experience the total healing experience of the jet-driven water. This environment is also ideal for water-based exercises and light stretching, which can help to tone and strengthen muscles throughout the healing process.
WeightYour perfect weight loss solution might be sitting in the beauty of your own backyard. The buoyancy of the water helps to lift weight from your body, creating a more comfortable environment for sore muscles and joints. The added weight from working out on dry land can cause inflammation and lead to muscle tension, which is why working out in the spa is so ideal, because the heat, massage and buoyancy can actually help to relieve aches, pains and tension. Incorporating a variety of low-impact exercises is a great way to get started and tone your muscles, from squats and triceps dips, to reverse crunches, flutter kicks, and more. If working out isn’t your forte, you can always try water yoga instead!
StressFeel the warm water moving around your body. Experience the reduced tension from the powerful jets. Allow your mind to relax with soothing music. If you’re feeling stressed out, your hot tub can provide the perfect place to kick back, relax, and de-stress! You can even add in aromatherapy scents and have the water jet streams massage you for a complete blissful experience. Not to mention that soaking in the hot water can help boost the natural production of stress-fighting endorphins, so you can feel better inside and out!
SleepReduced stress and eased aches and pains can lead to better sleep patterns. If your body and mind feels comfortable and at ease, it’s much easier to fall asleep faster and stay asleep for longer. By soaking in your hot tub for as little as 20 minutes before bed everyday for a little hydrotherapy session, you can experience improved sleep patterns on a more regular basis. The warm water combined with the jets can help prepare you for a full night of sleep, by helping both your body and mind to relax and wind down after a long, hard day.
