HOT TUB BENEFITS

For centuries, hydrotherapy has been a popular pastime for people around the world. Whether for relaxation, recovery or connection time, see how hot tubs enhance your life.

RELAXATION & WELL-BEING

A hot tub can help you unwind, relax, and even help you sleep. The heat expands blood vessels, improves circulation, and reduces pain. The addition of hydromassage (the massaging pressure from the jets) can relieve muscle tension and help you de-stress even more. Immersing yourself in a hot tub for even 10 minutes has plenty of benefits, such as:

  • Stimulate production of calming endorphins
  • Increase circulation to alleviate tension
  • Directly soothing tightness in the muscles

All of this promotes relaxation and stress relief, which in turn helps with sleep.

How does a hot tub help you sleep? The Better Sleep Council recommends establishing a relaxing bedtime routine, such as soaking in hot water, 1 to maintain a healthy sleep cycle and help with issues like insomnia and racing thoughts. The warm water is relaxing and calming, and as your body temperature drops when you get out, this tells your body (and your mind) that it’s time to get some rest.

We love getting in after a long day or our daily workout. Revitalizing yet relaxing. Best night’s sleep ever after a visit to the hot tub!

Physical Therapy

Hydrotherapy benefits a range of health problems. The heat itself promotes circulation, while the buoyancy of the water lifts the effects of gravity and takes the pressure off joints. Research supports the benefits of hydrotherapy for many conditions, including:

  • Stress
  • Lower back pain
  • Sleeplessness
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Leg cramps
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia

In fact, the Arthritis Foundation recommends warm water therapy as a home remedy for arthritis. The Journal of Musculoskeletal Research stated that hydrotherapy offers more potential benefits for those with lower-back pain compared with land-based forms of exercise.2

Even if you don’t have health issues, hot tub therapy can help with one thing that is good for everyone:

Congestion Relief. The steam will let you breathe a sigh of relief, while heating and then cooling your body temperature helps induce sleep and keep your immune system up.

FITNESS & RECOVERY

Hot tub benefits don’t end there – Troy Taylor, USSA High Performance Director, recommends hydrotherapy to athletes, in both training and competition. This results in athletes feeling better and having an improved perception of fatigue and recovery.

High-performance athletes like Trace Worthington — 2-time Olympian and U.S. Ski Hall of Famer — still actively uses hydrotherapy in training. By being proactive and taking care of his body, he felt noticeably better the next day. Worthington often uses the hot tub to stretch, as well as pinpointing areas that are sore or tight, releasing lactic acid and allowing his body to loosen up.

ENTERTAINMENT & FAMILY TIME

Family togetherness is a top reason for purchasing a hot tub, and your investment will pay off in distraction-free bonding time between you and your children. Consumer research indicates that parents spend real quality time with their kids in their hot tubs—without the distractions of phones and computers.

A hot tub is also a great way to add an entertainment feature to your home, offering the perfect place to get together with friends and neighbors. Remind guests to bring their swimsuits to your next barbecue. Make it a part of you and your partner’s daily routine before bed. The opportunities to reconnect and spend quality time together are endless.

After years of spending money on the house, we finally made the decision to make a great investment in our health, our family, and ourselves! Quiet time with the wife has increased and we love it.
