Hot Tub Health Benefits

 

We all know that hot tubs provide relaxation and pleasure but did you know that hot tub hydrotherapy provides physical health benefits which go much deeper?

Whether you are using an inflatable spa or a rigid hot tub the benefits are the same. The inflatable Lay-Z-Spa range actively promotes a healthy lifestyle and represents a significantly better value alternative to customers than traditional fixed hot tubs, spas and Jacuzzis on the market, without compromising on the health benefits.

 

Hydrotherapy

Often prescribed for the following conditions: Arthritis, Stress, Headaches, Diabetes, Muscles and Joint injuries, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Scoliosis, and Fibromyalgia.

The 40 degree warm water of the Lay-Z-Spa hot tub helps to stimulate the body and release endorphins; we all know that a long hot bath is always the best cure for a good night’s sleep! Combine the warm water with the Lay Z massage water jets of the Lay-Z-Spa inflatable pool and you have found therapeutic hot tub heaven! Evidence has suggested that the heat can help your blood vessels to open up and reduce blood pressure whilst the massage jets stimulate better circulation. The buoyancy of the water also helps to give the feeling of weightlessness and take pressure off joints and limbs.

Skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased circulation when in the warm water of an inflatable hot tub. The gentle massaging jets increase blood flow to injured areas, bringing much needed nutrients to help repair the damage. Powerful hydrojets are perfect for the hydrotherapy sessions many athletes now use as part of their recovery training programmes.

For conditions such as arthritis simply taking the pressure off joints in a hot tub can provide relief of symptoms and can increase ability to perform daily tasks with more ease. 

Sleep Therapy

Sitting in a hot tub raises your body temperature and the weightlessness caused by the buoyancy of the water can be deeply relaxing creating the right conditions for a deeper sleep. Studies also suggest that once your body temperature has dropped on leaving the portable spa that this temperature change may also induce a deeper sleep. Consider a full length spa so you can recline for optimal relaxation before bed.

Type 2 Diabetes & Hot Tubs

Recent studies have shown that with continued use of hot tub therapy of up to 30 minutes a day can help with type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar. However this does come with a warning; as a drop in blood sugar may not be immediately apparent until an individual has exited the tub, with this is mind we would advise you leave your lay-z-spa hot tub gradually and seek proper medical advice before using a hot tub so as to really feel and appreciate the benefits of this wonderful hot tub hydrotherapy.
