Aches and Pains
The buoyancy of the water lifts up to 90% of your body weight, creating a feeling of weightlessness. The warm water further helps your body to relax, while massaging-action from the jets works to ease joint pain and reduce muscle tension.
Do you have poor sleep patterns? Soaking in a hot tub can help to prepare you for a full and uninterrupted night of sleep through relaxation and stress relief. Simply add 20-30 minutes of hydrotherapy to your bedtime routine.
Soaking in warm water raises your internal temperature, acting as an artificial fever. This process tricks your body into thinking that it needs to create antibodies to fight off an infection or virus, in turn strengthening your immune system.
Stress can manifest in both a physical and emotional way through feeling overwhelmed, exhaustion or overexerting your body. Soaking in a hot tub can help you to relax and let go of built-up tension, leading to the gradual release of your stress.
