Discover for yourself what ancient cultures have been telling us for thousands of years – immersion in hot water can be good for the body, mind and spirit. Besides providing a relaxing hydrotherapy experience, hot tubs and portable spas provide many health benefits, especially for people suffering from arthritis, diabetes, and sleep deprivation, meaning that a long, soothing soak in a spa could be just what the doctor ordered. Whether it’s to unwind from the complexities of everyday life or to soothe sore muscles and joints caused by sports or minor strains, a spa can help spa users feel better — naturally.
There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create a relaxing, soothing hydromassage experience.
Immersion in a hot tub raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, increasing circulation. The buoyancy of the spa water reduces body weight by approximately 90%, which relieves pressure on joints and muscles and creates the relaxing sensation of weightlessness.
The massaging action of a spa is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air through hydromassage jet nozzles. This “energized” stream of water loosens tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
Here are just a few benefits you may experience from hot tub hydromassage therapy:
