Therapeutic and Health Benefits of a Hot Tub

Hydrotherapy, or warm water therapy, consists of three main healing ingredients: heat, water, and buoyancy. With the addition of massaging jets, a hot tub creates a powerful, rejuvenating experience that has been shown to soothe and relieve a variety of health and medical conditions.

Whether you are experiencing regular aches and pains, or are suffering from a severely debilitating physical condition, spending time in a hot tub on a regular basis can provide tremendous therapeutic benefits and dramatically improve your quality of life.

Stress, Headaches and Sleep

Hot tubs can significantly improve day-to-day health issues such as stress, headaches and sleep quality. Warm water massage stimulates the body to release endorphins that reduce stress naturally. In addition to stress reduction, hydrotherapy jets also dilate blood vessels to help prevent headaches. When it comes to falling asleep faster and getting a good night’s sleep, the National Sleep Foundation states, “soaking in hot water, such as a hot tub or bath, before retiring to bed can ease the transition into a deeper sleep.” 1

Muscles and Joints

The use of hot tubs for hydrotherapy is commonplace in the athletic world. Tennis Magazine said it best, “Your skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased blood circulation” adding that, if muscles are injured: “A soak in a hot tub or whirlpool increases blood flow to the injured area, bringing nutrients to help repair the damage.”

According to the Arthritis Foundation, “hydrotherapy is one method of using water to help treat arthritis. The soothing warmth and buoyancy of the water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain. Using a spa adds another component to the therapy – massage.”2
