Swim Spas and Therapy: How this unique hot tub can provide the healing your body needs

A Michael Phelps Signature Signature Swim Spa by Master Spas provides all sorts of benefits for people looking to improve their health

For a lot of people, a hot tub is just a fun way to relax after a long day. But, for many others, a hot tub is a vital part of their therapy and wellness plan. There are so many benefits to using a hot tub, especially when trying to find relief from certain medical conditions. While anyone can find comfort and healing from a hot tub, they are extremely good at improving circulation, helping with chronic pain, and reducing tension and fatigue.

Made specifically for people looking to improve health, enhance fitness, and find therapy in the water, the Michael Phelps Swim Spa from Master Spas is not your typical hot tub.

A Swim Spa offers the most luxurious experience. It has a wide, smooth current that lets you swim, jog, walk, or exercise in water without the stress of gravity. Massaging spa jets relieve the tension and pain that may have accumulated throughout your day. Two powerful pumps give you complete control of the strength of the jets — from a gentle touch to maximum muscle-kneading force. The water temperature is always perfect. It’s truly an experience all of its own.

Plus, it has so many benefits for the body. Here are some of the ways a Swim Spa can help you reach your health goals.

Reduce pressure and soothing aches

Exercising and walking in warm water is known to be extremely good for people, especially people who are looking for some relief from joint pressure, aches, and fatigue. Aquatic therapy is also really great at improving mobility and flexibility, helping people get into shape and lose weight. It can even help with balance and coordination! If you are looking to find relief from conditions like Fibromyalgia, arthritis, lupus, and other medical problems that cause pain throughout the body a Swim Spa can benefit you.

Help chronic pain and fatigue through gentle exercise

There are a lot of people who deal with chronic pain or chronic fatigue on a daily basis. While it seems counterintuitive, a gentle aerobic program can help reduce pain and fatigue. This is especially true when done gently in the water. When someone is exercising, it releases endorphins which helps heal the body. So while it seems like exercise would cause more pain and symptoms, it’s actually one of the easiest ways to heal pain and get relief from fatigue.

Improve mobility and flexibility

We mentioned above that a Swim Spa can be an effective therapy for arthritis. The gentle resistance of the water paired with the buoyancy it gives the body allows you to exercise while limiting the strain on sore joints. Paired with the warmth of the water, it can soothe aches. This lets you workout, stretch, and be mobile without the pain that would occur out of water. Therefore, the Swim Spa can benefit people who have any type of rheumatic conditions.
