Making New Year’s resolutions is easy, but sticking to them is a whole other level of commitment that many of us struggle with. But if you’re looking to improve areas of your health, such as minimizing stress, improving circulation, sleep, and relieving joint and muscle ache, then all it takes is committing to stepping into your hot tub on a regular basis. If you can commit to that, you bet you can commit to each one of these improvements with hot tub therapy.
Minimize Stress, Improve Sleep
The combination of soothing jets and hot water combine to create the perfect environment to promote relaxation and reduce chronic stress. Hydrotherapy reduces tension and it also increases the temperature throughout the body. Once you step out of the hot tub and experience that temperature decrease, it preps the body for sleep. All it takes is fifteen minutes in the hot tub to already be well on your way to keeping your resolution.
Decrease Muscles Aches and Joint Pain
Whether you suffer from arthritis or simple muscle aches, they can affect almost every aspect of life when they become inflamed. Hydrotherapy can alleviate that by massaging your muscles and joints. And since the buoyancy of the water reduces your body weight up to 90%, it can drastically remove all of that pressure that your body has to endure throughout the day.
Once you step into that hot water, it instantly works at opening up the blood vessels throughout the body. This in turn eases blood flow and decreases blood pressure. Hot tubs are truly a great way to improve your blood circulation and even assist in digestion, while boosting your immune system.
If you suffer from chronic fatigue, hydrotherapy can be just the thing to allow your body and mind to experience the type of relaxation that can stimulate the mind and body (much like meditation), and as a result, reduce chronic fatigue.
Don’t give up on your New Year’s resolutions. If you’re looking to make some improvements with your body and mind this year – whether it’s reducing chronic pain, fatigue, or stress – hot tub therapy could be just the thing to help you stay on track. There’s no better excuse to hop into those warm jets more frequently to assist in keeping you on track to a new and improved you.
