For many many years, Greek people have thoroughly enjoyed mineral and thermal water baths and the benefits of warm water therapy. Medical treatments with baths, spas and bathhouses have become very common in places such as Egypt, Finland and Turkey.
However, they are not the only countries that enjoy these treatments, hot tubs are extremely popular in the UK. Many people have a hot tub in their garden at home and they can also be found in most holiday resorts around the country.
Hot tubs are a luxury for many people, but they also come with their benefits, let’s take a look.
If you are suffering from a type of muscle injury or back pain, then it is known that relaxing in a hot tub will benefit you and help to relieve the pain, by relaxing your muscles and joints. For people who suffer from arthritis, it is recommended that using a hot tub can be an excellent way to apply heat to arthritic joints.
Have you ever had a really long day at work and just wanted to sit back and relax? Well, it is a proven fact that regular hot tub use can reduce stress. Buoyancy eases the pressure in joints and muscles, while the heat increases the blood flow to muscles and accelerates healing. The hot tub jets can provide therapeutic massage and stimulates the release of endorphins – Which is all a way of reducing stress!
Hot tubs also have a social benefit, whether it’s sunny or chilly, sitting in the hot tub with your friends and family is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It can also be a good way to introduce younger children to be in the water. Just remember to double-check how many people can fit in your hot tub before you all try to get in!
Spend Time Outdoors
Having a chance to sit outside in your hot tub and experience the beauty of nature can be beneficial for your mental health. It allows you to relax and unwind, without any distractions from technology or mobile devices.
Why drive to the gym or go out for a jog, when you can exercise in your hot tub? The warm water and jets help to warm-up your muscles before you begin your exercises. Simple exercises such as bicycle kicks can help you tone up and manage your weight. After you have done your exercises, simply sit back in the tub and allow your body to unwind.
