The Many Benefits of Hot Tubbing
Relaxing in a hot tub is so much more than a warm bath. It’s stress relief, quite time and a great massage wrapped up in one!
When you spend time in your spa, you reap the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy. This combines heat, buoyancy and massage to relax your muscles, increase circulation and help relieve pain and tension.
A Better Night’s Sleep
Soaking in a hot tub before going to bed can lead to a deeper and more peaceful sleep. Millions of Americans suffer from sleep disorders, like insomnia, more than one night a week. Plus, a lack of sleep often leaves you feeling nervous, groggy and depressed or can cause erratic mood swings.
Experts believe insomnia can be traced to hectic, stressful lifestyles, thus, relaxing in a spa regularly can help.
A drop in body temperature can also aid in easing the body into a relaxing and sound sleep. Take a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about two hours before bedtime, and your body temperature can drop to enable a better nights sleep naturally without the grogginess sometimes caused by prescription remedies.

Are you one of the 46 million Americans affected by arthritis? If so, soaking in your Hot Spring spa can help ease your pain.
Joint inflammation from arthritis causes swelling, pain and stiffness, often resulting in the loss of joint movement or function. Immersion in warm water produces hydrostatic pressure on the body that results in reduced joint inflammation and increased mobility. Spas give you the soothing warm water and buoyancy needed to release tension and improve your quality of life.
For even more relief, use the Arthritis Foundation’s hot tub tips to gently exercise and practice flexibility as you soak.
The use of hot water or heat is recommended for many people with arthritis but not all. Please consult your physician.
Heat, buoyancy and massage work together creating a relaxing hydromassage experience. The heat raises your body temperature, increasing circulation. The buoyancy reduces your body weight by 90%*, relieving pressure on muscles and joints with a feeling of weightlessness. Relaxing massage provides the following benefits:
- Relief of tension in muscles and joints
- Temporary relief of aches and pains
- Decreased anxiety and stress
- Total, full-body relaxation
*Body weight reduced by 90% with neck-depth immersion.
