Health Benefits of Hot Tubs
2014 exhibitors Spyrys Spas and Hot Tubs take a look at the health benefits of using hot tubs.
The heat, buoyancy and massage elements of a hot tub can provide health benefits to people suffering from aches, pains, stiff muscles, circulation problems, headaches, sleep disturbances and chronic medical conditions like diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and arthritis. Take a look at the health problems below and see how you could benefit from a dip in a hot tub…
Stress – stress is known to cause headaches, fatigue and tense, knotted muscles. the combination of heat, massage and buoyancy can relieve tension and stress, ease pressure on the joints and stimulate natural endorphin production
Sports Injuries – top physics say a soak aids recovery from post match aches and more serious muscle and joint injuries. Top sportsmen and woman have installed spas to keep themselves in peak mental ad physical condition and speed up rehabilitation
Muscular Aches & Pains – hot water increase the temperature of muscles, causing blood vessels to dilate, which increases blood flow, boosts circulation and reduces tension which in turn aids relaxation. Spas also help the body to eliminate waste products, helping detox the body
Insomina – soaking in a hot tub prior to bed time will help you fall into a deeper, more relaxed sleep. Sleep deprivation can lead to depression, poor concentration, mood swings and memory lapses
Arthritis – joint pain and inflammation due to arthritis can be eased with a spa session. A morning dip can warm up joints and make movement easier throughout the day
High Blood Pressure – research suggests that soaking in a spa for 15 minutes can lower a persons blood pressure
Colds & Infections – patients with upper respiratory infections, asthma, colds and bronchitis can all benefit from a hot tub session, which helps to open the airways and promote the circulation of healing white blood cells
Immersion in a hot tub reduces the body weight by approximately 90% taking the strain off the joints and muscles. The heat from the water warms up joints to keep them moving, reduces swelling by making the tissues more flexible and the increased blood flow and circulation stimulates the healing process thus reducing aches and pains.
Arctic Spas are ergonomically designed using high volume jets to provide a concentrated hydrotherapy massage to target specific areas of the body. Arctic Spas have also designed a new range of All Weather Pools so that you can swim, row and do hydrotherapy exercises in warm water all year round without excessive running costs.
If you are looking to exercise without weight bearing onto sore muscles and joints, water provides the right amount of resistance to strengthen weak muscles and joints without causing excess pain. The Arctic Ocean swim spa includes its own exercise equipment for rowing and swimming and is ideal for both exercise and relaxing your own garden.
