Self Care: 9 Benefits of Hot Tubs

December 22, 2022

Many people understand soaking up the benefits of a hot tub and relaxing in a spa. When you have experienced a long, stressful day, there is nothing better than slipping into a soothing tub full of whirling water that gently caresses your tired body and eases your overworked senses.

Elite travelers often like to book destinations and accommodations with hot tubs, pools and other amenities that promote wellness. Having a hot tub, especially, is ideal after a day of intense activities or sightseeing.

Hot tubs are incredibly beneficial for your physical and mental health. They can improve circulation and speed up your body’s natural healing process by relaxing muscles and relieving nerve pressure.

With that, here are a number of other benefits you can receive from soaking in hot, jetted water:

Hormone Balance

Hot tub sessions are known to create happy hormones. These hormones are released by increased blood flow and relaxed breathing brought on by the swirling water. Serotonin and dopamine levels are increased, while cortisol and epinephrine levels are decreased. Hot tubs can balance these hormones and help you to fight stress, depression and anxiety.

Stress Reduction

Stress is an inevitable part of life, but doing things that can help you to bounce back from it is the key. One of those things is using a hot tub. They provide natural healing and spending time in one can do wonders for your mental health.

Sleep Enhancer

No need to count sheep, take sleeping pills or spend the night tossing and turning when you use a hot tub. It could actually help you to have the best sleep you have had in a long time. Studies have shown sleep will be deeper and more restful since your body actually cools after soaking in a hot tub. Research shows regularly increasing a human’s body temperature improves cardiac rhythm, which improves the quality of heart health and sleep.

Physical Health Benefits

There are a whole range of physical benefits to soaking in a hot tub. They include:

  • Respiratory health. Steam from the hot water can help open breathing passages in the sinuses and lungs;
  • Heart health. Water puts pressure on the body making it work harder while at the same time, decreasing blood pressure;
  • Relaxed muscles. Water buoyancy relaxes muscles, while the increased water temperature decreases tension and improves flexibility;
  • Easing of headaches. Soaking in a hot tub can help to ease headaches because it dilates your blood vessels, which decreases the pressure on your head. Additionally, sufferers of sinus and cluster headaches tend to experience episodes coinciding with nasal and chest congestion. Spending time in a steamy hot tub is a good way to fight congestion and prevent these occurrences.

Ease of Exercise

You can also exercise in a hot tub which puts a lot less pressure on your joints, and minimizes your risk of getting any joint-related problems. If you opt for a swim spa (a bigger version of a hot tub), you can canoe, kayak and paddleboard due to the powerful jets. They are a perfect length for swimming and aqua aerobics.

Arthritis Relief

Fortunately for arthritis sufferers, spending time in a hot tub may provide temporary relief from arthritic joint pain. In a controlled study examining the effects of spa therapy on patients with severe osteoarthritis, researchers found significant reduction in pain after just two weeks. In fact, patients undergoing spa therapy experienced less pain than those undergoing drug therapy at the same time. Likewise, a study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis demonstrated hydrotherapy reduced pain, tension, and joint tenderness.

Lower Back Pain Relief

In multiple studies, people living with chronic back pain who underwent hydrotherapy treatment, either on its own or in combination with other treatments, saw a reduction in symptoms. While these studies do indicate hydrotherapy may positively impact people suffering from lower back pain, they do not replace the advice of a doctor or qualified medical professional. To see if a hot tub may help ease your symptoms, consult your physician.

Promotes Healthier, Younger Looking Skin

Regularly soaking in a hot tub has been shown to lower levels of stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety are leading causes of premature aging. This means that relaxing in the hot tub will help keep you looking and feeling young. Furthermore, the increased blood circulation caused by soaking in hot water means your blood is more efficiently delivering vital oxygen and nutrients to your skin – giving you a healthy, youthful glow.

Lowers Blood Sugar

In one study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, subjects with type 2 diabetes spent a half an hour, six days per week for three weeks submerged in a hot tub up to the shoulders. By the end of the three weeks, subjects saw an average drop in blood glucose (BG) levels from 182 mg/dl to 159 mg/dl.
