What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a water-based therapeutic technique that is used by spa owners and health care professionals all around the world. The healing properties of hot tub water work together to offer a variety of health benefits and improvements to those who soak in the hot tub regularly. The combination of heat, buoyancy and massage help to relax the body, reduce built-up muscle tension and ease sore joints, while improving circulation. By simply soaking in a jet-driven hot tub, one can experience a world of difference, both physically and emotionally.
Soothing Benefits of Hydrotherapy
Sit back, relax and let your hot tub do all the work. By sitting in a hot tub for as little as 20 minutes a day several times a week, you may experience the following:
- Improved sleep patterns
- Reduced stress levels
- Eased muscle tension
- Soothed joint pain
- Improved circulation
- Weight maintenance
- Better complexion
Hydrotherapy can also be of use to those who are recovering following a minor injury. The improved circulation can help improve the natural production of positive endorphins, helping ease feelings of both pain and anxiety, all while helping blood and oxygen reach the affected area. The buoyancy and heat of the water can also help to provide a much more comfortable environment to relax in, helping improve balance, flexibility and overall mobility.
Water Therapy and Your Health
You might be surprised at just how much hydrotherapy can change your life. If you suffer from one of the following health conditions, soaking in a hot tub may provide you with some relief or improvement. Before treating any condition with a hot tub, we always recommend that you first consult a physician to ensure your best health.
Tense muscles can result in feelings of physical discomfort. The warm temperature of the water can help your body to relax, which is the first step when it comes to reducing muscle tension. From there, the powerful, yet gentle, jets will massage some of the most stress-prone areas of your body.
Do you suffer from joint pain? Whether arthritis or fibromyalgia, painful joints can affect your quality of life. The buoyancy of the water can help lift weight from your body, allowing your joints to finally relax and move freely without added pressure. This comfortable environment is great for low-impact exercise and stretches.
Calm your mind and relax your body, transferring your body to a state that is prepared for sleep. Combined with reduced tension and soothed joint pain, spending time in your hot tub before bed can even make it easier for you to get comfortable and fall asleep, without the nagging effects of aches and pains.
Feelings of stress and anxiety can most make it harder to fall asleep. Soaking in the hot tub regularly can clear your mind and allow yourself to relax. This relaxation can help you feel better both physically and emotionally. Carve some time out for yourself to soak in the peace and quiet of your hot tub installation.
