Life is as hectic and demanding as it’s ever been, and our time is increasingly stretched across a growing range of day-to-day activities. While aspects such as jobs, house, family and friends invariably enjoy the majority of our attention, there is often one crucial element that misses out: you. There’s only so much we can carry ourselves and only so many responsibilities we can shoulder before the biggest priority becomes looking after Number 1.
Allowing for some long overdue time to simply stop, take stock and replenish mind and body before starting over again the next day should be a high up on everyone’s list, and Jacuzzi® hot tubs are here to help you do just that. From the therapeutic benefits of water and hydromassage to the more elemental positives of being in the company of others, here are some of the primary wellbeing benefits offered by Jacuzzi® hot tubs and the moments of stillness they offer.
The power of doing nothing shouldn’t be underestimated and we all owe it to ourselves to carve out precious time and space to work through recent events or decompress from intense experiences. We’ve all heard of ‘shower thoughts’, where our brains are freed up from bouncing from task to task and can actually process deeper emotions or problem solving; well, a Jacuzzi® hot tub can have just the same effect. The soothing sensation provided by warm water and massage jets can serve as a focal point for your mind, as well as gradually easing the often-maligned areas of the body such as back, neck and shoulders.
It goes without saying that stepping into one of our hot tubs provides you with a pause button and way to switch off the noise, even for a brief moment during the day or last thing in the evening. We all need moments in our lives to stop, take stock and create some distance between us and the relentlessly busy world outside. Over time, and when done consistently, enjoying a Jacuzzi® hot tub can serve as a release for the tension we build up physically and emotionally – something which is increasingly tied to longer term health problems. Time in a hot tub is time dedicated to yourself – to doing nothing at all.
The positive effects of hydrotherapy have long been known, and a Jacuzzi® hot tub will always equal great hydromassage. Our PowerPro® jets are capable of delivering an array of therapies and sensations, from wider, low-pressure flow which covers a larger area of the body to more precisely targeted deep tissue treatment. Sufferers of chronic ailments such as back pain or joint discomfort may find relief from consistent use of our hot tubs. Similarly, hydromassage can be of real benefit to those with muscle soreness from intense activity or exercise, where soft tissue is gently rejuvenated and circulation stimulated to flush away toxins.
The temperature of the water itself in a Jacuzzi® hot tub can also provide a number of favourable results: reducing muscle tension, eliminating lactic acid and inflammation, energising the entire body and inducing deeper levels of relaxation to name a few. Soaking tired or aching limbs in a body of heated water can go a long way to easing joints, loosening stiff muscles and inviting blood flow into problematic areas. The precise temperature control offered with all Jacuzzi® hot tubs means you can set your soak to meet your exact requirements, every time. The combined results of this and true hydromassage can give your entire body a much-needed recovery boost, whether you’re a sports enthusiast or someone simply looking for improved mobility and physical autonomy.
The importance of sleep for both our short- and long-term health is unmatched, and we are just beginning to understand just how much of an impact it has on all aspects of our physical and mental wellbeing. Most of us can function if we happen to have a poor night’s sleep, but for a growing number of people it’s a far more common occurrence. Whether it’s the result of excess screen time, life-related stresses and anxiety, or a genuine bout of insomnia, we are all increasingly subject to poor quality sleep or a chronic lack thereof, which can have a detrimental impact on our quality of life now and in the future.
Thankfully, spending time in a Jacuzzi® hot tub before bed can drastically improve both the quality and length of your sleep. The warm water heats your body, which in turn has to cool itself down afterwards by sending more blood to the surface of the skin. This rapid cool-down effect stimulates the body to produce melatonin, also known as the ‘sleep hormone’. With a healthy bedtime routine, proper sleep hygiene and a dip in a Jacuzzi® hot tub, you may find that you are able to drift off more easily and enjoy a deeper, more prolonged night’s sleep – and enjoy a range of health benefits as a result. After all, sleep is the ultimate way of recharging your body.
One of the main downsides of us all leading such hectic lives is that we often miss out on precious time with family and friends. Working late, workout out, running from one errand to the next; we are constantly surrounded by people but at times there can be the sense that we’re doing it alone. The tangible health benefits related to socialising and spending important moments with those we care about are regularly being discovered, in terms of both our mental and physical balance, and a Jacuzzi® hot tub offers the space to do just that.
From smaller models offering twin loungers right up to 7-seater versions for larger groups, our hot tubs provide a natural gathering spot for those bonding moments that are increasingly vital to our wellbeing. Sitting together in a hot tub removes all unnecessary distractions and allows you to focus your attention on people, not things. Conversation can flow, discussions can take place and experiences shared; all interactions and exchanges that ultimately make us the social beings we are. If nothing else, a shared soak in a Jacuzzi® hot tub is an opportunity to simply do nothing at all whilst in the company of your nearest and dearest; to enjoy the quiet points in life as much as the hectic ones.
