4 Compelling Health Benefits of Jacuzzi Baths

Has stress become an integral part of your life? Are you thinking of getting a Jacuzzi bath to help rejuvenate and revitalise yourself? Today, life is tough.  Not only is there no time to relax, but we’ve also forgotten how to relax. Moreover, being baffled with stress can hurt your productivity and can badly affect your health. Yes, in this day and age, it should come as no surprise to learn that stress is one of the leading causes of both disease and death.

The King of all Bathtubs

Today, leaving the house is no longer necessary to have a spa-like experience. An indulgence used in many cultures since Roman times, Jacuzzi baths are so much more than just luxurious pastimes for the super wealthy. What was once a feature found only in hotels and luxury day spas can now be found in homes throughout South Africa. So much more than just big luxury hot tubs, Jacuzzi baths are an investment in your health and wellbeing. Here are four compelling health benefits of a Jacuzzi bath.

#1 Alleviates Chronic Pain, and Revitalises Tired and Sore Muscles

If you’re someone who loves exercise, then you’ll know all about muscle pulls, cramps, and stiff and sore muscles. Or maybe you have arthritis, or you suffer from chronic pain from an old accident or injury. There is no better therapy than hot water therapy for alleviating pain, and revitalising tired and sore muscles and joints. For years, scientists have been studying the effects of hot water on the body, and they’ve found that hot water helps relax and rejuvenate the body. Soaking in a Jacuzzi bath raises the body temperature, and the buoyancy of the hot water brings you to a calm and more relaxed state, thus relieving tension, alleviating arthritis, and revitalising tense and tight muscles.

#2 Reduces Stress, and Eases Headaches and Migraines

Stress is a silent killer, and if there is one sure way to reduce stress, it's with water. People have always been drawn to water as a source of healing. From its soothing sound, as it trickles down, to the feeling of it against our skin, as we slip into a steamy, bubbling bath – the water in Jacuzzi baths is therapy to the body and mind. Along with its heat, relaxation and stress-relief benefits, Jacuzzi baths help to dilate the blood vessels, thus decreasing pressure in the head and alleviating headaches and migraines.

#3 Promotes Better Sleep

Using the healing power of hydrotherapy, a Jacuzzi bath not only relaxes tense and tight muscles, thereby relieving high-blood pressure and tension, but it also calms the mind, which promotes better sleep. Once your body temperature has dropped upon getting out of the bath, your mind will be completely relaxed, which will induce the body's natural sleep mechanics.

#4 Detoxify the Skin

Playing a key role in good health, detoxification is a natural process that occurs with the help of the liver and metabolic system. But if the liver is not able to keep up with the constant onslaught of pollutants, it leads to heavy metal build-ups, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and dry or oily skin – and this is where Jacuzzi baths come to the rescue. Soaking in a hot tub allows the heat to open up your pores, and gives your skin a fresh and more youthful appearance.
