As if we needed an excuse to dip our toes into a luxurious Hydropool after a long, hard day at the office, but science has even proved what good it can really do for our bodies. The warm water of a hot tub has been shown to help balance your nervous system and keep it in check. It is believed that warm water immersion encourages the release of the hormone dopamine. Dopamine is released by the nervous system in our bodies to combat the effects of harmful stress.
Scientific evidence also shows that immersing yourself in hot water relieves muscle tension and reduces cardiovascular stress. Managing stress through hydrotherapy in warm water effectively increases our chances for a happy and healthy life.
We have all been warned about the negative effects that stress can have on the heart and the way that can make us feel. One of the recommendations for stress relief is to take 15 to 20 minutes a day to sit quietly, breathe deeply and think of a peaceful picture. What better place to do this than in your hot tub or swim spa? During quiet spa time your blood vessels tend to relax, making it easier for your heart to pump with less effort, improving blood flow and circulation.
In your Hydropool hot tub you get the perfect combination of heated water, weightless buoyancy and soothing jets that massage your stress away. Even our swim spas have spa seating areas, so you get the combined benefits of exercise and relaxation.
So if you weren’t really sure whether a hot tub could do your mind just as much good as your body, there you have it. Soak away the stress, relax your mind and feel that tension slip away as you take just 20 minutes each day to yourself. Go on, you deserve it.
