More than a millennia ago, ancient cultures discovered how the mind, body and spirit can be improved by immersing in hot water. Taking a long, peaceful soak in a hot tub from HotSpring Spa will not only ease your tension and stress, but could also be just what the doctor ordered. A HotSpring Spa can help you feel better naturally, whether it’s just to relax after a long day or to reduce the tightness and pain in your joints and muscles from an injury or strain.
The Hydro-massage Experience
Massage, heat and buoyancy are all working together to give you a calming, relaxing experience infused with hydrotherapy.
Soaking in a spa increases circulation as the body temperature rises with the hot water causing the blood vessels to dilate. Buoyancy creates a weightless sensation that releases the tension in joints and muscles when it reduces body weight by about 90%.
The jet nozzles give a relaxing massage with the use of air and warm water. Endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, are released and tight muscles are loosened with the “energized” stream of water.
There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, affecting an estimated 50 million Americans. Most types of arthritis are identified as inflammation of the joints causing stiffness, swelling, and pain, many instances ending with the result of joint function or movement loss.
Finding relief by immersing in the relaxing, warm water of a spa is common among people affected by arthritis. Having a hot tub conveniently located in the comfort of your backyard, provides you with the buoyancy, warmth, and massage required to exercise and soothe muscles and joints.
Help may be as near as the closest hot tub for people who suffer from diabetes (Type 1 or 2), more than 23.6 million people. There are many advantages to owning a spa and for people who are affected by Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus there are many benefits to soaking in a hot tub, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
People can, many times, control their condition by exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet with this type of diabetes. Sadly, vigorous activity and maintaining a consistent weight is physically impossible for some diabetics. Immersing yourself in a hot tub can lead to an increase in overall sense of well being and improved sleep.
Stressful, busy lifestyles are the cause of insomnia for many patients, according to sleep researchers. Worn nerves, memory loss, mood swings, grogginess, and depression are just some of the symptoms of sleep deprivation. Have a deeper, more peaceful sleep, relieve stress and relax by soaking in a hot tub before going to bed.
A decrease in body temperature can help calm your body into a relaxing and soothing sleep, according to a study in the scientific journal Sleep.
For that reason, it is suggested to soak in 103F degree water for 15 minutes an hour and a half before going to bed. This allows sleep to set in easily, because after soaking in a hot tub the body decreases its internal thermostat.
Many people want to avoid grogginess and other adverse side effects from alternative sleeping aids such as prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicine and alcohol. A natural remedy to induce relaxation and a deeper sleep is through the use of a spa.
So what are you waiting for, Relax in Your Own Hot Spring Hot Tub!
