In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at hot tub hydrotherapy and how soaking in an outdoor hot tub can truly help revolutionize your lifestyle.
What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a water-based therapeutic technique that has been used for hundreds of years. The healing properties of warm, flowing water are utilized to help improve how you feel, both physically and mentally. It’s even used to help aid the healing process following a surgery or injury.
These properties are harnessed and replicated using modern hot tubs and spas. Advanced features such as ergonomic seating, interior illumination, powerful jets, and user-friendly temperature control systems enable hot tub owners to take their hydrotherapy healing into their own hands – or backyards.
How Does Hydrotherapy Work?
Hydrotherapy utilizes three properties of the hot tub water: buoyancy, temperature, and massage.
As you immerse your body into the jet-infused water, chances are you’ll notice the immediate feeling of weightlessness. This is due to the buoyant properties of the water. In fact, the buoyancy of the water lifts about 90% of your body weight from your muscles and joints.
This new-found freedom gives your sore and tired body a much-needed break, as the weight of the world is quite literally lifted from your shoulders! Now that your body is free from added pressure, they can finally benefit from the heat of the water and massage from the jets.
The water’s heat can have an almost immediate effect on your entire body. The warm water surrounding every inch of your body can help to ease tense muscles and soothe sore joints, helping your body reach a feeling of pure relaxation. Not to mention, the warm water feels amazing!
Now that your body has adapted to this environment that’s geared toward healing and relaxation, the powerful massage jets can really work their magic. The jets in each Jacuzzi® and Sundance® Spas hot tub are strategically placed throughout the tank to target the most stress-prone and tense areas of your body. This includes but isn’t limited to your neck, shoulders, feet, and upper back.
The Benefits of Hydrotherapy
The buoyancy, temperature, and massage combined can result in a wide array of health benefits. Soaking in a hot tub on a regular basis can help improve and regulate your blood circulation, helping oxygen better reach various parts of your body. It can also help ease tension, reduce pain, and so much more, which can be felt long after you’ve exited the luxurious water.
Some of the most notable health benefits of hydrotherapy include:
- Improved sleep
- Reduced stress
- Eased muscle tension
- Soothed arthritic joints
- Weight maintenance
- Boosted emotional health
These health benefits are only the beginning. Taking time to yourself or spending some much-needed quality time with a significant other or close friend can greatly boost emotional and mental health, due to reduced stress and other various benefits of social interaction.
