People have always been naturally drawn to water as a source of comfort—the soothing sounds of a bubbling brook, the relaxing steam of a natural hot spring. Water therapy in a hot tub combines all the best calming features of water in addition to opening the blood vessels to improve circulation, relaxing the muscles, and providing an escape from the pressures of daily life.
Exercise is important for health and well-being but no one wants the sore, overworked muscles that sometimes come along with it. Hydro-massage gently warms and stimulates the muscles and joints, expediting recovery to the benefit of those with injuries and muscle pain.
Targeted pain relief
Hydro-massage has many pain-relieving benefits. It reduces pain levels for people struggling with arthritis, muscle tension or discomfort resulting from fibromyalgia. For people who suffer from lower back pain, a study published in the Journal of Musculoskeletal Research found that hydrotherapy is more beneficial than land-based exercises.
Improved sleep habits
With all these amazing hot tub benefits, you won’t be surprised to learn that a
Calspa or Clearwater hot tub can also help you sleep! The National Institute of Health estimates that 30% of Americans suffer from sleep disruption. All the benefits of immersing yourself in warm water—tension relief, improved circulation and more—also help create healthy sleep habits according to the Better Sleep Council. Raising your internal temperature by soaking in a hot tub two hours before bedtime and then having your body naturally return to normal temperature after you exit your spa, creates a gentle transition that improves sleep.
Whether you’re juggling work and family, recovering from a joint or muscle injury or simply need to unwind from the day’s stresses, hot tub therapy provides relaxation, healing effects, and nourishing rejuvenation. In addition, a hot tub is a great place to catch up with family and friends. You could even say that socializing and bonding are benefits of owning a hot tub!
