There are many reasons why people purchase hot tubs. Some buy a hot tub because it’s a simple way to relax in their own backyard, garden or solarium. Other people install a hot tub because they love spending quality time with friends and family. So, whatever the reason for taking the plunge, most hot tub owners come to love and appreciate the benefits they receive from their hot tub.

There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy, and massage. Working together, they create a totally relaxing hydro-massage experience. The heat in a hot tub raises your body temperature, increasing circulation. The buoyancy of the hot tub reduces your body weight by 90% (Bodyweight reduced by 90% with neck-depth immersion), relieving pressure on muscles and joints with a relaxing sensation of weightlessness.

Benefits that can come from something called hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy isn’t a new concept, in fact, it’s been around since ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece.

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy involves the use of water for soothing an aching body or speeding the recovery of other muscular ailments. Combining water with air and heat to promote well-being in the form of hydrotherapy has been used for various health issues such as muscular conditions and rheumatic diseases.

There are different ways in which you can use a hot tub to aid injury recovery and improve health and well-being, some of which we explain below.

Finally, hydrotherapy is a great stress-reducer and has been shown to relieve anxiety and promote feelings of well-being.

Currently, there are many different variations of hydrotherapy, many of which are offered at spas, gyms, or by physicians. These options however typically aren’t cheap, even if they are effective.

How does it work?

When it comes to using your hot tub for hydrotherapy, there are two major factors in how it helps to improve your overall health and wellbeing. These two factors include buoyancy and heat.

Buoyancy: When you immerse yourself in water, you start to float. This weightlessness immediately helps to take the pressure off of your joints. Without that it, you immediately feel a sense of relief. Your pain can start to fade, and you can start to relax.

Heat: Warm water soothes your body by making your organs slow down. When your organs slow down, you can’t help but feel more relaxed. Warm water also makes you sweat, which helps the body to release any and all toxins. One important thing to note is that you shouldn’t spend the entire day soaking in warm or hot water. It is possible to slow your system down too much and increase pressure on your organs.

When you combine buoyancy and heat together, your body can potentially help heal itself from all sorts of issues.
