For many people that are considering buying a hot tub, one of the first questions that will often come to mind is if they can use their hot tub every day. The great news is that not only can you use your hot tub every day, but there are also a number of reasons why you should. While it is always important to follow the recommended health and safety guidelines for using hot tubs, there is no reason why you can’t start using your hot tub every day from the moment that it arrives.
To find out more about the great wellness benefits that you can reap from using your hot tub, keep reading below.
Better Sleep Quality
Sleep disorders and insomnia are common in many adults. Lack of sleep has a frustrating list of side effects including lost productivity, depression, an increase in stress and symptoms of anxiety.
By using your hot tub daily, hydrotherapy can help improve your quality of sleep. This is effective because when you are soaking in the warm water, the circulation in your body increases, which lowers your blood pressure and helps reduce stress. The other way it helps is that the warm water temperature increases your body temperature, which causes it to drop as it starts to cool down once you exit the hot tub. This temperature drop in your body sends a signal to your brain, which is recognized as a sign that it is time to sleep.
Less Anxiety and Stress
Between work, our daily hectic routines and family commitments, many of us are frequently stressed out. After trying to keep up with deadlines, bill payments, getting children ready for school, walking the dog and preparing dinner by the end of the day, it can feel like we have run a marathon.
If you are fortunate enough to be a hot tub owner, taking a soak every day (or even better, one in the morning and another in the evening) can lead to an improved psychological and emotional state. Starting your day in your hot tub can help you mentally prepare and focus on the day ahead while an evening soak can melt away daily stressors and help you unwind.
Improved Range of Motion
As we age, our range of motion declines. While this can be a very gradual process for some, others experience it much quicker in life as a result of many factors such as medical conditions, sports injuries, arthritis, or even genetics.
When you use your hot tub every day, you benefit from the warm water which creates a hydrostatic pressure that reduces joint inflammation as well as aids mobility. If you suffer from arthritis or joint stiffness, the buoyancy of the water is the perfect place to take advantage of your relaxed state and be able to gentle perform flexibility exercises to improve range of motion and mobility.
Soothe Sore Muscles
Whether you have a sore back from being at the gym or a stiff neck from working on a computer all day, the customized massage programs in your hot tub will target the specific areas you need to soothe your sore muscles away. Quality hot tub models, like Hydropool, have a number of different massage programs to target a wide range of conditions from insomnia to back pain. No matter where you need the attention the most, you can benefit from the healing power of hydrotherapy.
