Hydrotherapy is a warm water massage that offers physical and mental relaxation. The winning combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage helps create feelings of calmness as it relaxes muscles throughout the body. Hydrotherapy is used as a treatment for muscle and joint pain, stress, arthritis, musculoskeletal disorders, sleeplessness, and more.
Hot water, jet massage, and the weightless feeling of sitting in a hot tub are effective in the reduction of stress and anxiety. As the hot tub water relieves the gravity effects on your body, you develop a weightless feeling. At the same time, the water gently kneads your muscles providing relief from tension and discomfort. Relax, rejuvenate, and rehabilitate your body, mind, & soul.
Sleep is extremely important to good health, but millions of people in the U.S. suffer from various sleep disorders. Hydrotherapy is a natural remedy, and it’s a safer approach to improving sleep than taking sleep aids, which can have unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects. Evening soaks in a hot tub will release endorphins that will help relax your body and calm your mind making it easier to get comfortable and fall asleep faster.
There's no easy way around achieving fitness. The challenge of maintaining a commitment to exercise often stems from the discomfort and soreness it induces. However, hydrotherapy fosters an active lifestyle by mitigating these challenges. It eases tight, aching muscles and joints, decreases inflammation, alleviates pain, and hastens recovery from intense physical activity through the use of warm water therapy. Studies suggest that indulging in a swim spa or hot tub session can curtail post-exercise soreness by a significant 40 percent.
Soaking in a hot tub on a regular basis may help to reduce some types of headaches. As you have an overall feeling of being relaxed when sitting in a hot tub, there is little chance of suffering from a tension-triggered headache. This is partly because your muscles aren't contracted, and your pains and aches go away.
Another aspect of improving your health by relaxing in a hot tub is the lowering of your blood pressure. Your blood vessels dilate due to the increased warmth. Your overall blood pressure may be lowered. As a result, your cells become revitalized.
Hot tubs are known to provide substantial stress relief by immersing users in a calming, warm water environment. The combination of heated water and massage jets promotes relaxation, aids in reducing muscle tension, and helps to produce endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Regular hot tub use can contribute to better sleep patterns, lower blood pressure, and an overall reduction in stress-related symptoms, thereby improving quality of life.
Spending time in a hot tub provides relief for a person suffering from arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, and bodily pains and aches. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the pain and stiffness caused by arthritis can be relieved by the water therapy provided by hot tubs. Hot tubs are also a perfect environment for the safe exercise of painful and aching muscles and joints due to free movement and increased circulation in the hot water.
The warmth of the water also helps encourage your blood to flow more easily, allowing better circulation throughout your body. Your spa won’t cure your poor circulation, but it may temporarily improve your symptoms.
The heat generated from a hot tub can lead to vasodilation. As your blood vessels widen or expand, pain and tension may loosen their grip on your body. According to the AARP, the soothing properties of hot water are enhanced by aromatherapy.
Spa reflexology involves using strategically placed jets to massage specific points on the feet and hands, which are believed to correspond to different organs and systems in the body. This focused jet massage stimulates these reflex points, helping to improve overall well-being and potentially alleviate certain health concerns. Through targeted pressure, hot tubs equipped for reflexology can offer a unique form of relaxation and stress relief, promoting holistic health and wellness right from the comfort of home.
