Top 6 Health Benefits of Using a Hot Tub
Over the years, hot tubs have made their way into the homes and backyards of many people. With those numbers growing each and every day. Once seen only as luxury items, hot tubs are actually increasingly praised for the many benefits they can entail. There are many health benefits that users can experience from using a hot tub on a regular basis. Feelings of relaxation, rejuvenation, and healing can usually be felt long after exiting the crystal-clear water.

Due to the natural soothing properties of hot water, hot tubs are often used by their owners for therapeutic purposes. In particular, users have found that bathing in a hot tub can offer significant pain relief. The soothing action of the swirling and bubbling water can help with chronic pain, arthritis and more.
Hot tubs offer a type of physical therapy known as hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy utilizes the heat, buoyancy, and pressure of the water to help the human body experience feelings of healing and pain relief. In fact, any professional athletes who have been injured actually use hot tub hydrotherapy as a steady part of their recovery process.
The water in a hot tub allows the skin to cleanse and purify. The hot temperature of the water allows pores to open up. Skin pores are like little “valleys” into your skin. They are so small you cannot really see them with your naked eye in most cases, yet they are big enough for them to get cluttered with all sorts of debris. Bacteria, dead skin cells and other things can clog up your pores, resulting in pimples, skin outbursts or even infections, in some extreme situations.
When skin pores open up due to the action of the hot water, they will release all of the debris and allow your skin to cleanse and get rid of all of these toxins. After you exit the spa, and your pores are open, go wash your face and bathe your body right away. This will really help unclog pores and clear up your skin!
Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are great for relaxation and leisure, but you can seamlessly use them to work out. Many people love to perform fitness in their hot tubs because it brings many unique benefits to the table. While regular fitness can cause fatigue and it can be unsuitable for some people, hot tub fitness is considered low-impact, since the water’s natural buoyancy sustains some of the weight of an individual.
In other words, you will feel lighter while in the water, thus your body will not have to strain as much when you are performing exercises. Whether you decide to perform some fun aqua gym or some advanced hot tub yoga, there are many things you can do in order to stay fit and active with your hot tub!
Remember, always stay hydrated and speak with a physician before starting any new weight loss regimen.
Mood, Stress, and Sleep
Relaxing in a comfortable hot tub is known to alleviate stress, anxiety and can even help improve your emotional health. The soothing action of hot water, as well as the massage jets and other features, can help you ease in on your anxiety. Hot tubs are often a great way to relax and relieve yourself from all the stress of a long day at work.
Due to its relaxing properties, relaxing in a hot tub can actually help you address sleeplessness. If you suffer from insomnia, there is a big chance that excessive stress or fatigue may be at the core of the problem. By bathing before bed time, you may be able to cleanse your mood and regulate your sleep routine.
