Four Benefits of a Hot Tub
Everyone knows that a soak in a hot tub feels good, but did you know that is truly is good for you? When you soak in a hot tub, you’re improving below the water, above the water, and beyond the water. That is, you’re improving physically, mentally, and into your life and relationships. This blog post explains just a few ways that hot tubs are the best wellness product you can invest in:
Improved Cardiovascular Health
According to a study done by the Department of Physiology at the University of Oregon, hot tubs really can improve cardiovascular health. The study found that submersion in hot water “increased flow-mediated dilatation, reduced arterial stiffness, reduced mean arterial and diastolic blood pressure, and reduced carotid intima media thickness.” As we all know, the human heart is a vital organ and we all strive to take care of ours. How great is it that you can improve your heart health simply by sitting in a relaxing hot tub?
Relieved muscle tension
Hot tubs can do great things for your muscles! According to Livestrong, soaking in a hot tub has a similar affect that a heat pack has on your muscles. The great thing about a hot tub, however, is that it covers you whole body instead of just the small area that you apply a heat pack to! In addition, hot tubs have jets that massage your muscles and relieve pain. You can massage your back, or even your feet!
According to Health, hot tubs improve sleep. When you soak in a hot tub, your body temperature increases by a degree or two. Then, when you get out, your body temperature goes back to normal very quickly. This process of raising your body temperature and rapidly returning to normal has been proved to be very relaxing and sleep-provoking!
Hot tubs are a great way to connect with those you love. Because people generally don’t bring their cellphones into water, time spend soaking in a hot tub is unplugged. Being fully engaged with those around you is an amazing way to connect and better your relationships. When you’re sitting in a hot tub, reality and stress seem to melt away!
