Hot Water Therapy Basics
On the Hydropool Staffordshire blog, we spend a lot of time writing about the amazing health benefits of hot tubs and swim spas. We truly believe in their fantastic benefits for both your physical and mental health – we see so many clients at our show site that have suffered with physical or mental health issues for too long, and quite often our range of products have provided them with some simple yet very real relief from their aches and pains. That’s why we are so passionate about the potentially life-changing attributes to our collection. The luxurious aspect of hot water therapy is wonderful, but it can also become an important part of your regime to improve or maintain your health.
Hot water therapy is one of the oldest forms of alternative therapy that has stood the test of time. It works wonders for all kinds of musculoskeletal conditions including lumbar pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. This is because soaking in water reduces the force of gravity that is compressing the joints, decreasing swelling and inflammation and also providing support for sore limbs. This ease of pressure also helps to increase circulation which promotes healing.
Whilst you sit back and let the massaging jets do the work, we suggest that you spend some time stretching. Slowly move your body, work those joints, gently stretch out those aches and pains and allow that hot water to get to the deep root of the problem. In just a 20-minute soak, you’ll begin to feel the benefits, make it a regular activity and the results could be limitless!
The benefits of hot water therapy aren’t only physical – soaking in a warm tub lowers your heart rate, slows down your breathing and therefore relaxes your body. This could all assist with improving your mental health significantly. Practising mindfulness techniques such as measured breathing, calming your mind and focusing on your peaceful state are all amazing ways to boost your wellbeing. Another fantastic benefit is a 20-minute soak in your hot tub or swim spa each day can promote better sleep. Here at Hydropool Staffordshire, we know how much we value a good night’s sleep!
