Hot Tubs Can Improve Your Overall Health


Research is beginning to emerge showing why hot water feels so good. What does it mean for me and my health?



Improve Your Health with a Hot Tub SpaRecent studies by the National Aquatics and Sports Medicine Institute and others in the field of aquatic therapy offer a look at the enormous potential for improving health and wellness through hydrotherapy, especially warm water immersion such as hot tub therapy.


For some time there has been anecdotal evidence that suggested that it was good to soak in warm water. It simply feels good. Now science is actually beginning to realize why and how warm water immersion may be improving many aspects of our health, including the function of our autonomic nervous system. The sense of decreased stress and a greater sense of emotional balance and overall wellness likely has a scientific basis.


Water therapy is also showing to have a significant beneficial effect on our heart and circulation. It improves blood flow to the muscles which reduces pain and speeds healing. Warm water can relieve symptoms of diabetes, lower blood pressure, and may even make you smarter by increasing brain circulation and function.


They’re finally getting to the bottom of why warm water makes us feel so amazing. Ongoing studies in aquatic therapy will certainly uncover more valuable information about the health benefits of warm water. For now it would appear that if you are not spending some time relaxing in a hot tub that you are probably missing out on your chance for better health.
