Hot water healing is nothing new. Dating back as far as 2000 BC, Egyptians used hot baths to invoke relaxation and ease pain. However, today’s technology has advanced to make it much more convenient to enjoy, instead of placing sizzling hot rocks into water. More and more people seem to recognise that keeping your body in hot water physically, will keep your health out of the hot water, metaphorically.

Studies from leading universities around the world confirm time and again that there are definite health benefits to be derived from regular soaks in hot water. In addition to helping you live better and enjoy a higher quality of life, spa pools, with their hot water treatment, may help you to live longer too. Studies show that regular swimming can slow ageing as much as 20 percent in some people, by helping them maintain or improve respiration, cardiovascular function and muscle mass.

Merely being submerged in hot water up to your neck has proven to aid cardiovascular health. Since water provides more resistance than air and makes movement more challenging, even the most basic of water workouts can strengthen the muscles and heart. So even just treading water while seated in a spa pool can offer significant health benefits.

Why Should You Care About Spa Pools?

Water treatments work for various ailments, including rheumatoid and arthritis, among many other conditions. If you would like to learn how taking a regular dip in a spa pool can benefit your body, mind and general health, then read on.

    • Achieve better sleep: Few adults get the quality of sleep that they need and deserve. If you want to get more out of the limited time that you have to sleep, establish the regular bedtime routine of soaking in a hot spa pool. Hot water prompts relaxation and increases the body temperature, helping you to fall asleep faster and more soundly.
    • Arthritis relief: This is another popular benefit of spending time in a spa pool. The soothing buoyancy and warmth of warm water makes it a safe and comfortable environment for relieving arthritic stiffness and pain.
    • Lower blood pressure: Research shows that hot tubs can help to lower blood pressure in patients who partake in regular soaks.
  • Pain control: This is another good reason to adopt hot tub routines – hot water is known for stimulating the release of endorphins. These naturally occurring chemicals in the brain kill pain and improve mood. A soak after physical excursion, such as exercise or sports, benefits from the improved blood flow that results from hot water immersion. More nutrients and oxygen are delivered to the body, which helps to quickly remove pain-causing lactic acid that accumulates in muscles during intense workouts.
