Whether you have access to one at a spa or gym or are fortunate enough to have a hot tub in your own home, you’ll know the many pleasures they can bring. As well as being extremely comfortable and relaxing, there are actually many health benefits to be gained from spending time in a hot tub. If you’re considering investing in one or would like to find out more, read on for just four ways a hot tub can benefit your health.
Stress is highly unpleasant and too much stress can have negative physical side effects such as muscle tension, headaches and low energy. Luckily, the heat and massage effects of a hot tub can work wonders; easing sore muscles, improving blood flow and lessening the negative impact of stress.
Ease arthritis pain
Some arthritis charities actually recommend hot tubs as an effective way to soothe sore joints caused by the condition. Regular soaks in a hot tub can reduce stiffness, ease pain and help sufferers to move more easily when exercising or performing daily activities.
Lower blood pressure
High blood pressure can lead to a range of health problems, including chest pain, headaches and an irregular heartbeat, so it’s important to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. A study by the Mayo Clinic in the US found that hot tubs can be beneficial for heart disease patients and spending as little as 15 minutes in a tub can lower blood pressure.
Around 30 million Britons suffer from sleep problems and finding ways to sleep more soundly is top of many people’s lists. Soaking in a hot tub before bed can help you fall asleep and you’re more likely to have a deeper, more relaxing sleep as the body cools down.
