Did you know that soaking in a hot tub can help to improve your health?
Hydrotherapy is a therapeutic technique that can be enjoyed from inside the means of your hot tub. It can help to improve your health in many ways, including physically, emotionally, and mentally.
In this article, our experts at Arundel Pool and Spa take a closer look at what hot tub hydrotherapy is and the benefits it can offer.
What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a water-based therapeutic technique that can help you to feel better, inside and out. It utilizes the combination of heat, massage, and buoyancy to help improve your health, wellness, and overall lifestyle.
Here’s How Hydrotherapy Works:
As you immerse your body into the warmth of the jet-driven water, you’ll be sure to notice the feeling of relief and relaxation wash over you as the heat surrounds your body. This can help your muscles to let go of built-up tension, paving the way for the jets and buoyancy to continue the feeling of rejuvenation.
Next, the buoyancy of the water will continually lift pressure and weight from your body, as much as up to 90%, in fact. This can help bring your body further into a state of relaxation, allowing for the massaging-action of the jets to work away at some of the most stress-prone areas of the body.
This process can help to primarily ease aches and soothe pains, but also result in a number of other health benefits, too. This can be linked to an improvement in your circulation, helping oxygen reach the various parts of your body, and natural production of positive endorphins, among other factors.
The Health Benefits of Hydrotherapy
Regular hydrotherapy sessions can help to improve your health and wellness.
Spending as little as 15-30 minutes in your hot tub several times a week, if not every day, can result in a number of health benefits:
- Eased muscle tension
- Soothed joint pain
- Boost in energy levels
- Reduced stress levels
- Improved appearance of skin
- Weight loss/maintenance
- Better sleep patterns
- Stronger muscles
- Better balance
- Increased circulation
- Better post-injury recovery
- More flexibility
- Improved overall mobility
Of course, the health benefits of hydrotherapy differ from person to person.
Before using a hot tub or hydrotherapy to improve your health or treat a condition, such as arthritis or insomnia, we suggest that you first speak with your health care provider. This can help to ensure your best health.
In combination with hydrotherapy, you can further improve your health and wellness with spa-friendly exercise. This can range from cardiovascular activities like walking in place or treading water, to muscle-building exercises, yoga, and more.
