Hot Tub Health Benefits

A long soak in a hot tub can do wonders to help you feel relaxed and restored but did you know that recently there has been more research studies that validate the many health benefits of spending time in a spa?

One example of this developing information comes from a recent episode starring America’s on screen medical dream team, The Doctors™. When it comes to hot tub hydrotherapy and its many benefits, The Doctors™ take on several common health conditions and explain how warm water may help bring about relief:

Arthritis

As a non-pharmacological approach to treating arthritis, a hot tub can help address many of the symptoms of this affliction. The heat of the water can open up blood vessels which in turn can reduce pain and encourage range of motion. Taking a daily soak can go a long way in creating a pain management strategy to allow you to live your life as a sufferer of arthritis.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome, commonly referred to as RLS, is a neurological disorder that causes uncontrollable and unpleasant movement in the legs. Typically explained as throbbing, creeping, or a shaking urge and sensation, this movement disorder can interfere with one’s ability to sleep. Other side effects are nervousness, stress, arthritis, and muscle cramps. Taking a warm soak in a hot tub is said to bring relief to RLS sufferers especially when combined with a stretching routine.

Insomnia

A frustrating disorder, insomnia is chiefly known for its sleeplessness. This lack of sleep can manifest itself in numerous symptoms including clumsiness or forgetfulness. Spending about fifteen to twenty minutes in a hot tub before heading into bed can help both your mind and body to release stress and enable you to be able to achieve a healthier sleep state.

Hydrotherapy delivers a combination of heat and buoyancy that can leave you feeling more calm and relaxed prepping you to take on new challenges. A few minutes of soaking in a hot tub each day can help you achieve a better quality of life and live a healthier more enjoyable experience.
