Hot Tub Spa Benefits

Are There Health Benefits from Hot Tubbing?

Absolutely! Nothing beats a soak in the hot tub, after a long day at work or play. The hot water soothes away pains, loosens cramped muscles and aching joints. The warm vapor relieves congestion and cleanses your skin.

A hot tub set to the proper temperature, dilates your blood vessels, aiding in blood circulation and lowering your blood pressure. This is why people feel so relaxed after a soak. Buoyancy is another important benefit to soaking in a hot tub. The bubbles lift your limbs, relieving the weight, which reduces the workload for your heart up to 20 percent. As the hot water raises your body temperature you began to perspire, which rids your body of toxins via your pores.

Heat, Bouyancy and Massage, Three Healing Ingredients!

  • Muscle Relaxation- This occurs when the warm blood penetrates deep into muscles, causing the blood vessels to expand. Further relaxation occurs as the heat deadens muscle pain by easing pinched nerves, and helping the muscle rid itself of lactic acid and other wastes.
  • Temporary Pain Relief- As the body tries to register a temperature change, the central nervous system becomes depressed, causing muscle relaxation and temporary lessening of pain.
  • Promotion of Healing- The jet action in spas can promote healing by providing additional oxygen to the area than is provided by warm water alone. The heat and pressure can also raise the level of antibodies and white blood cells promoting the removal of bad cells and stimulating the formation of new tissue.
  • Warming-up the Muscles- Hot tub use by athletes is on the rise!

By relaxing muscles, the hot water and jet action helps to increase an athletes range of motion and allows for gentle pre-exercise and stretching in the hot tub. You can improve your athletic performance by hot tubbing before and after exercise. Soaking in the hot tub before exercising relaxes your body and loosens muscles and skin, making exercise easier and reducing the risk of injury. After exercise, soaking in a hot tub is a great way to wind down and relax. The hot moving water massages your neck, shoulders, arms, back, thighs, calves, and feet. Hot tubbing after physical activities will greatly reduce or even eliminate the stiffness typically felt the next day.

Not only do we take pride in the quality of the product we build, we also take pride in the way we package our spas to ensure that they arrive at your home safely. Spas are wrapped in a soft foam packaging material to protect the Acrylic Surface and Spa Cabinet from scratches and minor bumps. A thick layer of protective cardboard is installed to protect the spa from the shipping pallet. The spas are then stood up and a protective shrink film is placed over the entire spa to protect it from dust and sun exposure. Your spa will be shipped to your driveway and can be put in place by the freight carrier if you choose.

Diabetes

Hot tubs can also help control diabetes. A Colorado study of diabetes patients who soaked in a spa 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week found the average blood sugar level of the group dropped 13%! It concluded that the use of a hot tub lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
