Hot Tub Health Advantages
Everyone is familiar with the idea that stress eats away at a person's health. Those high levels of cortisol have been linked to just about every catastrophic diagnosis out there. Finding ways to manage stress can seem difficult in a fast-paced world. The CDC includes "Give yourself a break if you feel stressed out—for example, treat yourself to a therapeutic massage" as a suggestion for a self-care tip that decreases stress. But what if you don't have time for a massage? Having a hot tub in your Scottsdale yard has similar effects,—and you don't have to go anywhere to get them. A hot tub or Jacuzzi is a form of hydro massage. A hot tub has many heath benefits.
Health benefits of hot tubs:
- Improves Circulation - The heat and swirling of the water causes blood vessels to dilate which improves circulation.
- Decreases Arthritis Pain - This increase in the circulation eases joint stiffness and pain by bringing blood and oxygen to the joints sites.
- Increases Relaxation Response - Mental relaxation is induced with the warm, soothing environment of a hot tub. That brings down tension and levels of cortisol.
- Insomnia - This relaxation response can go a long way in aiding natural sleeping patterns if a nice hot tub soak is taken before bedtime.
