Have you heard of hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a fantastic way to restore health and wellness through the therapeutic use of water. It’s one of the oldest and safest ways to treat many ailments, from fibromyalgia and arthritis to sore muscles and restlessness. If you’re a hot tub owner, you’re probably already aware of some of the health benefits that owning a hot tub can bring. If not, then read on and discover why owning a hot tub makes it possible to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy from the comfort of your own home.
The combination of heat and the buoyancy of the water helps to hack into your happy chemicals, more specifically your endorphins, and take your relaxation to the next level. You might be surprised to learn that the buoyancy of the water reduces your body weight by 85-90%, which is why that feeling of weightlessness in the water increases your ability to move around.
Not only that, but it also relieves pressure on your joints, spine, ligaments, and muscles, and can be particularly effective in treating arthritis and providing a natural alternative to painkillers.
When it comes to improving your blood circulation, hydrotherapy has an almost magical ability. As you submerge your body into the therapeutic hot water, your blood vessels begin to open and flow more freely.
What does this mean? It means the provision of more oxygen and nourishment to all your cells and tissues, which when working properly forms the basis of a healthy life. In addition, the massage-like feeling of the water gently kneads your body and brings the benefit of good lymph drainage to help clear the body of toxins.
Hot tubs offer a great way to break the stress cycle of everyday modern life. From high blood pressure and headaches to digestive complaints and insomnia, stress can cause a wide range of physical and psychological problems that affect the mind and the immune system.
Regular use of your hot tub can also help alleviate stress and lower blood pressure. The warmth of the water and pulsating jets from your hot tub provide a wonderful massage experience, relieving muscle tension and bringing you to a more relaxed state.
Want to keep your skin in tip-top condition?
You’ll be pleased to know that hydrotherapy can have a positive impact on your skin. When the cells of your skin are provided with the proper blood flow, due to warm relaxing soaks in your hot tub, it regenerates at a faster pace. This increases collagen production, which gives the skin its elasticity and healthy glow. The cells will also be able to fight off bacteria and other infections that are the cause of acne.
So, there you have it! More, than a just a vehicle to have a soak, a hot tub can melt away tension, ease the pain of arthritis and improve your skin complexion.
