Stress, Headaches and Sleep Warm water massage stimulates our body to release endorphins that reduce stress naturally. In addition to stress reduction, hot tub hydrotherapy jets also dilate blood vessels to help prevent headaches. When it comes to falling asleep faster and getting a good night’s sleep, the National Sleep Foundation clearly stated, “Soaking in hot water, such as a hot tub or bath, before retiring to bed can ease the transition into a deeper sleep.”
Sore Muscles The Hydrotherapy use of hot tubs by athletes has skyrocketed. Tennis Magazine said it best: “Your skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased blood circulation” adding that if muscles are injured: “A soak in a hot tub or whirlpool increases blood flow to the injured area, bringing nutrients to help repair the damage.”
Arthritis The Arthritis Foundation concluded that warm water Hydrotherapy can help those with arthritis.“Hydrotherapy is one method of using water to help treat arthritis. The soothing warmth and buoyancy of the water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain. Using a spa adds another component to the therapy – massage.”
Diabetes Hot tub hydrotherapy can also help control diabetes. A Colorado study of diabetes patients who soaked in a hot tub 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 level.
Other Medical Conditions The muscle relaxing and joint loosening benefits of hot tubs help those with depression, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Tendonitis, Scoliosis and Bursitis. Hot tubs have even been known to provide significant help for those afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Palsy.
