Hot Tub Therapy: Hydrotherapy
Soaking in a hot tub with the jets massaging your tense tired muscles, as the tension of the day dissipates is perhaps one of the best forms of relaxation. While soaking in a hot tub is often seen as recreational it also offers a form of hydrotherapy.
In fact, hot tub therapy has been utilized for hundreds of years, dating back to the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians who enjoyed natural hot springs as a form of therapy. As time has progressed the invention of hot tubs has made it easier to enjoy that warm therapeutic water from the comfort of your own home.
What is Hot Tub Therapy?
Hot tub therapy is the method of warm water immersion and advanced jet systems to help relieve stress, relax sore, stiff muscles, and ease tension while rejuvenating the mind and body. The buoyancy of the water helps to reduce the weight of the body by up to 90%. This in turn takes the pressure off of joints, as well as helps to reduce inflammation.
Hot Tub Therapy Comes With So Many Benefits…
Many modern-day hot tubs are equipped with high-quality jet systems with measured pressure capabilities. These fully customizable spa settings allow you to target the areas on your body that need it most. Hot tub therapy has been known to help conditions such as:
*Always make sure to speak with your physician regarding any health concerns or symptoms prior to starting any new program or health decision.
- Type 2 Diabetes – Hydrotherapy helps to increase circulation and dilate blood vessels while reducing blood sugar
- Arthritis – Warm water immersion and the gentle pressure of the hot tub jets help to ease muscle stiffness and pain associated with arthritis.
- Back Pain – Hydrotherapy is said to provide one of the best forms of relief for back pain by decreasing pain sensory signals that are sent to the brain. It also helps to ease tension in tight muscles, making stretching and movement easier.
- Fibromyalgia – Recent studies have shown that the warm water in hot tubs along with the measured pressure of the jets, help to ease pain and other symptoms brought on by fibromyalgia.
- Chronic Pain – Regular dips into a hot tub can help to relieve chronic pain while also helping with relaxation.
Incorporating Hot Tub Therapy into your daily or weekly routine also encourages…
- Range of Motion – Water buoyancy and the reduction of body weight reduce pressure on joints and significantly aid in reducing inflammation, allowing for a better range of motion.
- Improved Circulation – Warm water coupled with hot tub jets helps to improve and encourage better circulation and blood flow throughout the entire body. Better circulation leads to a healthier immune system.
- Stress Relief – Not only is hot tub therapy great for the body it’s great for your mind too! Ease the tension of a long day or other stress-inducing factors by relaxing in a hot tub. Inducing relaxation decreases cortisol levels in the body, helping stress to practically melt away!
- Balance – Hot Tub or Hydrotherapy creates a sense of balance in the body. When the body is in a constant state of pain, tension, or experiencing inflammation it is never able to reach a fully rested state. In turn, our cells are not able to completely heal themselves to allow for true overall health. By relaxing the body and mind, easing tension, and reducing inflammation, our bodies are able to rest and recuperate properly.
