How Soaking in a Hot Tub Improves Your HealthPosted: March 17, 2022
If you’re like us, you probably don’t need a reason to take a nice soak in your hot tub other than the fact that it simply feels great. However, the many different collections of Dimension One Spas® hot tubs might just surprise you with the amazing health benefits you can receive by using your hot tub regularly.
Hydrotherapy, or the use of water to support good health and fight illness, is a powerful treatment that helps people of all ages and lifestyles stay healthy and feel their best. Included in hydrotherapy is a variety of activities, from taking a swim in the pool to soaking in the hot tub.
Let’s explore some of the most significant ways in which a nice hot tub soak could be beneficial for your health.
The day-to-day responsibilities of our lives can leave our bodies feeling run down, and this is especially true if you work an active job, exercise regularly, or have small children to run after constantly.
At the end of a long day, nothing sounds better for the body than a long soak in your hot tub, and you’re actually making a healthy choice by indulging in this act of self-care.
Soaking in hot water is a great way to ease tense muscles and get them fully relaxed before bed so that you can truly get the most out of your sleep.
Plus, the Bay® Collection, Reflections® Collection, and @Home Collection from D1 all feature a wide range of powerful patented accent jets that can help soothe muscles all over your body as you take your relaxing soak in your hot tub.
A well-functioning cardiovascular system is one of the most important parts of a healthy body, and heart disease is one of the most dangerous illnesses. Luckily, your D1 hot tub could help prevent heart disease and other cardiovascular issues with regular use.
According to a study in 2016, immersion in hot water was found to have a “robust” impact on blood pressure and the overall functioning of the vascular system. Plus, relaxing in your hot tub for an hour burns a similar number of calories as a 30-minute walk, making this habit a healthy addition to any exercise routine.
This probably comes as no surprise to you but spending time in your hot tub can have significant stress relief benefits.
Like a warm bath, a soak in your hot tub can help melt away the stresses of the day and leave you feeling both mentally and physically relaxed. This relaxation is a huge health benefit, as stress can cause all kinds of health issues when left untreated.
Whether you keep it simple with an @Home Collection hot tub or make the upgrade to a Reflections® Collection or Bay® Collection model, you can use the UltraLounge™ seating paired with the powerful accent jets to achieve a state of pure relaxation during your soak.
You may even find that you have an easier time going to sleep after some time spent in the hot tub, and a good night’s sleep is a great way to fight stress as well.
Hot tubs are popular among people of all ages and lifestyles for many reasons, and while the health benefits are important to consider, many people love their hot tub simply because it’s fun!
You can enjoy hours of great conversation with friends, family members, or a significant other, all while relaxing your body and mind and receiving a number of exceptional health benefits.
It’s time to start considering your New Year’s resolutions for the year to come. Would you like to focus on being healthier and happier in the New Year?
