Hot Tub Hydrotherapy Can Be a Step on the Path to Wellbeing
At Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, we see a connection between making good choices for the sake of your heart health and the positive benefits of hot tubs. Experts tell us that heart disease is preventable and controllable. Eating a healthy diet, getting your blood pressure checked, keeping your weight in a healthy range, and exercising are all recommended, along with no smoking and limiting the use of alcohol.
But where do you start, and how do you stay motivated along the way? This is where hot tub hydrotherapy comes in.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says taking small steps on the path to better heart health is the way to go. Here’s a comparison of what the CDC recommends, and how Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs hydrotherapy can support your efforts.
“Don’t become overwhelmed.”
Jacuzzi® Tip: Hot tub hydrotherapy can relax your mind and body after a stressful day, renew your energy, and improve your mood. It’s easier to resist the urge to calm the nerves with “stress” eating, and to take a walk after dinner, when you’ve had some time to unwind in your hot tub.
“Don’t go it alone.”
Jacuzzi® Tip: The CDC says “The journey is more fun when you have company,” and we agree. Sharing hot tub time with family and friends helps you connect with those who provide support for (and a pleasant break from) your efforts to build healthy habits.
“Don’t get discouraged.”
Jacuzzi® Tip: It’s going to take some time to reach your goals for a healthier heart, and we all know how hard it is to stay motivated when you’re feeling tired and sluggish. A hydrotherapeutic massage has been shown to boost circulation and promote a good night’s sleep, leaving you better prepared to face the challenges of the day.
Jacuzzi® Tip: Having fun decreases stress, which has been cited as a contributing factor in heart disease. Kick back in your backyard hot tub with someone you love on Valentine’s Day, for example, and you’ll probably find yourself laughing and talking more easily than you would in a crowded restaurant.
