We all know that hot tubs are perfect for relaxing, but did you know they can help benefit your health as well? While, of course, hot tubs are not to be used in place of medical treatments, your body may benefit from some of the side effects of taking a soak in your spa.
1. Soothe chronic pain
Soaking in a hot tub keeps your joints loose and moving and can help restore strength and flexibility. The warm water can also reduce inflammation in your joints and relieve stiffness.
2. Improve sleep
Hot tubs help relax muscles and reset your body temperature, helping you to fall asleep faster and have a better night’s sleep overall. When your body is warm, it naturally relaxes and puts you in a better mental state for falling asleep.
3. Relieve stress
Relaxing in a spa helps to increase blood flow, ease muscle soreness and promote relaxation, all of which can help reduce your stress levels. It can also help lower your blood pressure and elevate your mood.
4. Rejuvenate skin
The warm water in a hot tub opens your pores, helping to remove dirt and toxins from your skin. Soaking also increases circulation, so your blood moves oxygen and nutrients through your body more efficiently, resulting in a healthy glow.
5. Reduce headaches
A relaxing soak helps reduce tension, which can trigger painful headaches and more serious migraines. You may also find relief from sinus headaches because the steam from the hot tub can help relieve congestion. Additionally, using a spa can result in dilated blood vessels, which releases pressure in your head.
