Spa Use Throughout the Seasons

Remember, the benefits obtained from warm water therapy only takes a few minutes everyday, so it really doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you will use it. A warm soak in a beautiful spa does wonders for your health and wellness. Regardless of the season, at Imagine Backyard Living, we advocate for year round use of your spa to harness the healing and relaxing powers of water throughout each season. Here’s a bit more on how you can make the most of your spa:

Summer
The air temperature may be hot and the idea of stepping into warm water at first may sound odd. However once you find your way in, the physical and emotional benefits of warm water will take over. At the end of a long day, even 10 minutes in warm water can help hit the reset button and reduce physical strains to leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated. Plus, if you are worried about the temperature of the water, you can fill a few gallon jugs with water, freeze them, and then right before your soak, drop them in the water to quickly reduce the starting temperature 5-10 degrees.

Fall
As the crisp autumn evenings roll in, there’s nothing like finding quiet time sitting in a spa and reflecting on the day. As a great place to host intimate conversations, small social gatherings, or family check-ins, a spa can help eliminate tension and muscle aches and encourage self-nurturing by promoting quality sleep and a sense of harmony.

Winter
The air may be chilly but the hot spa environment will keep you warm. Winter may be our favorite season to take advantage of owning a spa. As a way to protect and improve your health, the hydro-therapeutic advantages obtained by a soak session can help reduce stress and keep you relaxed while under a starry sky for a truly unique experience.

Spring
Just as fun to exercise, relax, and have fun in as a regular pool but at half of the cost, a swim spa can be used year round. As the perfect place to spend spring mornings and evenings, a spa can help you nurture your wellbeing and provide the perfect place for reflection and meditation.
