Reasons to choose a hot tub

The soothing effects of hot water is nothing new.  From the ancient Greeks and Romans to today’s physicians and physiotherapists increasingly recommending hot tub therapy as a safe and effective way to protect and improve your health.  Benefits can be as simple as a better sleep, pain relief, relaxing after exercise, or for better mobility such as for arthritis relief.


How a hot tub can help me sleep

Hot water prompts relaxation and the increase in body temperature helps you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.  Just imagine soaking in your hot tub before bed time for 20 minutes and the enjoyable sleep you will get because of it.  You could enjoy this all year round with a Sundance hot tub from Aqua-Tech.

How does a hot tub help with pain relief

Physical therapists and pain management specialists routinely use hot tubs for everything from minor aches and pains to recovery from serious injury.  Hot water stimulates the release of endorphins in the body which naturally kill pain and improves your mood.  After an intense workout or physical exertion, the improved blood flow from hot water immersion means that oxygen and nutrients will flow more effectively and quicker to the areas where lactic acid has built up in the muscles due to an intense work out or physical activity.

Arthritis relief in a hot tub?

“The soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness” says the Arthritis Foundation.

Hot water immersion raises body temperature, causing blood vessels to dilate and increase circulation.  This results in less swelling and pain, and increases mobility.  To discuss in more detail, contact one of the hot tub specialists at Aqua-Tech to learn more.
