HEALTH BENEFITS


Hydrotherapy Treatment

 

Anyone who has used a Hot Tub before is familiar with the relaxing affect of the jets themselves, and their obvious benefits.

 

 

 

 








 

Focused streams of water with warmed air mixed within the flow can provide a therapeutic massage that you can control, depending on how gentle or intense you want it to feel.

 

Hot tubs are equipped with nozzles of various sizes, pressures, configurations, and quantities - all designed to target particular portions of your body.  Smaller groups of jets will hit pinpoint muscles around your neck.  Many jets will focus on certain portions of your back. 

 

Larger flow jets will actually sweep up and down your entire back, just to the sides of your spine.  Tiny jets will spin around your wrists.  Other jets will aim for your calves, feet, or arms.  Like a trained masseuse, the spa's jets can soothe sore muscles any time you need.






Improved Circulation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 








 

The hot water and bubbling

of a Hot Tub will cause body

temperature to rise, which in turn

will dilate blood vessels. This

improves circulation, especially

to the extremities, and can help

people with arthritis have better movement and less pain in their joints. A soak in a Hot Tub can leave you feeling invigorated and can improve the health of your lungs and heart whilst helping to improve skin tone and opens up pores that need healing.

 

 

 


 

Reduce Stress / Blood Pressure

 

Studies have shown that using a Hot Tub brings about a decrease in blood pressure and that the regular use of spas and hot tubs gives you some of the same health benefits of exercise but with less heart stress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





 

The Hot Tub is a good place in which to relax with family and friends, you can spend time together sipping a drink or simply having a chat. The bubbling of the Hot Tub is particularly soothing and will help you relax not only mentally but also physically.

 

When your body absorbs heat, several subtle physiological processes occur.  First, as your body warms up, blood flow is increased.  The warming of your blood causes your blood vessels to dilate.  Blood pressure is subsequently reduced - often in as little as 20 minutes.

 

You can use your time in a Hot Tub to get a reflexology massage by placing your feet directly in front of the water jets. Your feet contain thousands of nerve endings, and their stimulation can improve your overall well-being and mood.

Fatigue Relief

 

Everybody has a lot of weight on their joints. Think of your feet and ankles - they support almost all of your body's weight - every day, all day long. Other joints are constantly in motion - your knees, elbows, and wrists, for example. And unfortunately, everyone either has experienced some sort of back pain, or knows someone who has.

 

 











 

When we are sitting in a spa, the natural buoyancy of the water supports approximately 90% of our weight. This obviously reduces the strain on our joints, by giving them a little "down time" from the daily grind. Pressure is greatly reduced on all of your joints and muscles while your are relaxing in your hot tub.

 

 

 



Ease Muscle / Joint Pain

 

A Hot Tub can be an effective way to treat sore muscles and joints. The water jets inside the Hot Tub allow for a high-pressure hydro massage that you direct to specific parts of your body simply by moving around and adjusting your body to receive the full force of the water.

 

 

 




 

 

 








When running at full intensity, the jets can provide something akin to a deep-tissue massage, soothing aches and pains. Sitting in a Hot Tub can help heal sports injuries, as the heat can soothe muscle spasms and speed up recovery time.

 

Hot Tubs also provide the warmth, massage, and buoyancy that is so necessary to the well-being of arthritis sufferers. The regular use of a Hot Tub helps keep joints moving. It restores and preserves strength and flexibility, and also protects your joints from further damage.

 

 

 



Heat Treatment

 

Not everyone knows of the great benefits to the body when you spend a few minutes in your Hot Tub

 

 

 







 

 

 

 

 

 


When your body absorbs heat, several subtle physiological processes occur. First, as your body warms up, blood flow is increased. The warming of your blood causes your blood vessels to dilate. Blood pressure is subsequently reduced - often in as little as 20 minutes.

 

Additionally, the hot water also causes muscle relaxation as heat from the water is carried deep into your muscles. Normally, your body tries to cool itself by carrying heat to the surface via your blood. Unlike a bathtub, a Hot Tub can maintain a hot water temperature indefinitely. So while you are soaking in a spa, your blood doesn't recirculate at a reduced temperature. It returns deep within your body at a warmer temperature than before, delivering therapeutic heat where other treatments cannot.

 

Furthermore, the central nervous system's sensitivity it muted, as your body focuses its attention on the heat gain. This brings about temporary pain relief. This neurological affect can happen with any gradual increase or decrease in your body's temperature, but soaking in warm water is much more preferable.

 

 

 

 

 

Better Sleep

 

Your body can be eased into a state of deep and relaxing sleep by a drop in body temperature after going to bed.
















Soaking in hot water about 90 minutes before bedtime triggers your internal thermostat to lower your temperature, thus inducing sleep to set in more easily.
