Benefits of Hot Tub Hydrotherapy

          Hydrotherapy was a groundbreaking discovery for the noninvasive treatment of many medical conditions. It has been proven to reduce pain and swelling while encouraging expansion on the body’s range of motion. Not only has hydrotherapy helped improve the lives of those suffering negative physical symptoms of diseases, but it has also been proven to help improve the psychological and emotional distresses of those suffering from depression and anxiety.

            Having a hot tub in the comfort of your own backyard allows you to soak in the benefits of hydrotherapy in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Below we describe benefits a daily soak can have on your physical and mental wellness. Hydrotherapy in conjunction with a wellness plan devised by your physician can improve your overall quality of life.

 

DECREASE STRESS, ANXIETY, AND SLEEP BETTER

            Your alarm goes off in the morning and you know you only have a limited amount of time to get ready for work, make breakfast, get the kids ready to school, and brave the morning commute. While at work you’re bombarded with emails, phone calls, employee and coworker drama, and you’re only halfway through the day! Stress has the ability to invade every minute of our day from the moment we wake to the moment we stress about getting enough sleep. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way to melt it all away?

            A daily soak in a hot tub, whether in the morning to start your day, or at the end of your day can help you feel rejuvenated and refreshed. In a randomized and controlled study, subjects were found to have increased improvement in their emotional and mental states, while maintaining that improvement with daily use of hydrotherapy. The warm water and the massage of the strategically placed jets of a Vita Spa or American Whirlpool Spa allows your muscles to loosen, releasing any tension sustained within your body as an effect of stress.

            A study performed on a group of female insomniacs showed significant improvement in their ability to sleep. Warm hydrotherapy showed that the subjects experienced a deeper and more restful sleep than the control group. Relaxing the body, refreshing the mind, and improving the quality of your sleep add to the general wellness of an individual. These benefits can be attained by a daily soak in your hot tub.

 

LOOSEN JOINTS AND RELIEVE MUSCLE SORENESS

            As we age, our bodies change. It becomes more difficult to bounce back from an injury. You can find that your range of motion just isn’t what it used to be, and you feel an overall tightness in your muscles and joints. Hot tub hydrotherapy can improve these symptoms, and help you find relief from your pain.

            American Whirlpool’s physician designed jets are strategically placed to ensure maximum rejuvenation. Their performance seating is designed to provide full body immersion and proper posture, maximizing the tension relief from each targeted zone.

            Orthopedic surgeon Ronald J Wisneski estimates that eighty percent of the population will suffer from back pain. Those who have back pain understand the debilitating effects the pain can have on your quality of life. The heat and massage presented by daily use of your hot tub releases tension and toxins from your muscles. The buoyancy provided by hydrotherapy in a hot tub takes pressure off not only your back, but your legs and feet allowing you to ultimately relax your entire body. Relief from daily pains have been proven to improve overall the overall wellbeing of a person’s mental and physical state.

 

RELIEVE SYMPTOMS OF FIBROMYALGIA AND ARTHRITIS.

            Not only does hydrotherapy have proven benefits on overall emotional and physical wellbeing, it actually also has proven benefits in the treatment of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and different types of arthritis. In a 10-day study of a group suffering from severe knee osteoarthritis, it was proven that those in the spa therapy group had significant improvement in pain than those in the control and drug-based group.

            About 8% of the population over the age of 40 suffer from fibromyalgia. 75% of those effected suffer poor sleep quality. In a study performed on the effects of hydrotherapy in those with fibromyalgia, subjects found improvement in physical function, work performance, pain, tiredness and even depression symptoms.

            If you are suffering from symptoms of fibromyalgia and arthritis consulting your doctor about the benefits of spa hydrotherapy may be a life changer. The debilitating pain and emotional distress caused by fibromyalgia and arthritis can be improved with the help of your physician and a daily soak in a hot tub.

 

IN SHORT

            The benefits of soaking in a hot tub daily can improve general wellness. Targeting joint and muscle pain with soothing massaging jets can help release tension and strain. The psychological benefits of having a healthy way to relieve stress can change your life allowing you to be more relaxed, refreshed, and gain more restful sleep. Having a hot tub in the comfort of your own backyard can help you achieve these benefits in the comfort of your own home.
