Hot tubs are a great luxury item and a great addition to any home because they can be used all year round. Hot tubs are a great place to relax and unwind after a long day, but did you know they also provide health benefits? Yes, hot tubs are perfect for stress relief, arthritis, muscle pain, blood pressure and so much more. Most people view hot tubs as another expense or something to maintain, but they can provide more than people realize.

Here is a breakdown of the health benefits of owning a hot tub:

  • Arthritis
  • Stress
  • Muscle pain
  • Blood Pressure
  • Insomnia

If you struggle with one of the problems listed above then investing in a hot tub may be helpful for you.

Arthritis

Do you suffer from arthritis pain? Being in a hot tub not only keeps your joints moving but they also become more flexible, and it is an easy way to exercise your achy bones. The water movement thanks to the jets helps move your bones and joints in an easy way that will help build up strength and relax tight muscles. Our joints bear a lot of weight, no matter what size you are. Joints play a critical role in keeping the body upright. Ankles, knees, and feet hold all of your weight, all day every day. Others are constantly in motion, such as elbows and wrists. And back pain is extremely common.

Luckily, the buoyancy of water helps support our weight, reducing strain on joints. Pressure is also reduced on joints, giving them a break from stress, that carrying body weight causes. After a soak in a hot tub, your joints will thank you.

Stress

Are you stressed? You probably could say yes at some point if not today. The jets and warm water are there to help relax your tense muscles and help lower your blood pressure. Hot tubs are a great way to get away from the world and your problems for just a moment in time. Using aromatherapy can also increase your experience.

While there are many physical benefits to hot tub use, there are also psychological benefits. Stress can be relieved by a soak in the hot tub. As you sit in the warmth, your body’s endocrine system begins to release endorphins. These endorphins help lower your stress level. And, one of the main reasons why hot tubs benefit the mind is because you are taking time for yourself. It’s a simple act. As you sit in the hot tub you’re being still and enjoying your time. The bubbles are soothing, and the experience is peaceful and relaxing.

Muscle pain

Do you work out frequently or just experience muscle pain? Hot tubs offer a great source of relief to those who have tense or bunched muscles. Soaking in warm water helps to relax sore muscles, improving your overall circulation by raising your body temperature.

It’s no secret that hot water helps soothe muscle aches and pains. When you sit inside a hot tub the water is increasing your blood’s circulation, which helps tight muscles loosen up and relax while repairing tears in muscle tissue. Working alongside the heat, jets also massage the body. This aids in the removal of lactic acid. During intense workouts, lactic acid is built up in muscles. This causes the sore achy feeling after periods of exercise. This is why it’s beneficial to sit in a hot tub after working out. As lactic acid is flushed out sore muscles feel better.

Blood Pressure

Have high blood pressure? Not to worry! Owning a hot tub will help relax your mind and body as a whole. The heat will also improve your circulation which in return lowers your blood pressure. When you sit in a hot tub blood pressure decreases within five minutes. Next, as circulation gets better, more oxygen and blood are found in the system and are delivered to the limbs. If you haven’t checked your blood pressure in awhile be sure to make an appointment with your physician to see if purchasing a hot tub would be a great investment for your health.

Insomnia

Do you have trouble sleeping? Hot tubs help relieve stress and anxiety which in return makes it easier for you to fall asleep. Relaxing in warm water also helps your body transition into sleep mode. The same endorphins that help you reduce stress levels are the same hormones that help you sleep. By soaking in a hot tub, not only will you become more relaxed but you’re also helping yourself get a better night’s rest. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a good soak in a hot tub can help ease the transition into a deep sleep. And, because hot tub use lowers your internal temperature, you’ll fall asleep faster and more deeply.
