BEYOND RELAXATION: YOUR HOT TUB’S BEST THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS
Your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub does not just offer you a relaxing place to unwind; you’re making an investment in your health. Soaking in your hot tub provides therapeutic benefits, which can foster mental and physical improvements. Here are some of the best types of therapy provided by Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs:
Hydrotherapy involves using water to combat physical problems and promote overall health. It can improve blood circulation, take the weight off tired joints, and generally promote relaxation while lowering stress levels. Jacuzzi® Hot Tub jets provide a form of hydrotherapy called hydromassage, where streams of air and water are directed to specific areas of your body. This, combined with the heat of the water and the natural buoyancy attained by floating, provides a unique massage to all parts of your body.
Reflexology homes in on the feet and the hands. According to The Mayo Clinic, “Pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.” It is believed that pressing on specific areas of the foot may lead to physical improvements in corresponding parts of the body. Jacuzzi® Hot Tub jets, when directed at your hands or areas of your feet, provide reflexology sessions in the comfort of your spa. When the stream from the jets reaches those tender areas, you’ll enjoy a pleasant pressure and a release of tension as you relax.
Color can have a distinct effect on mood. In a 1985 study by L.D. Rosenstein, it was reported that test scores and mental state varied depending on what color room the participants were in. Chromatherapy draws on the suggestion that various hues and types of light can relax and soothe you. Replace your spa bulbs with blue or yellow lights, for example, to truly feel relaxed and at peace in your spa.
Now that you are aware of the many therapies your spa can perform, you will be able to utilize it to benefit your health more fully.
