The Health Benefits of a Hot Tub or Spa

The Health Benefits of a Hot Tub or Spa

When looking for ways to improve our health, diet and exercise are usually the first two things that might spring to mind. But have you considered adding a hot tub or spa to your healthy living routine? They have many surprising health benefits.

Stress Relief

Hard work, whether at home or on the job, causes stress. Stress can manifest itself in many ways, both physically and mentally. It causes us to be wound up and tight.  Spending some time soaking in a hot tub can relieve these symptoms and help you feel more relaxed. And that’s good for everybody.

Warm water causes your blood vessels to dilate, which increases blood flow and lowers your blood pressure. This, in turn, increases the amount of blood that gets to your muscles and brain relaxing you and helping you to reduce stress.

Reduces Pain

Do you suffer from issues like back pain or arthritis? Several medical studies have shown that these types of issues can be helped by spending some time in the hot tub. Sufferers of chronic lower back issues and arthritis have reported that time spent in the warm water help to reduce pain.


Wouldn’t you love to exercise by simply relaxing in a hot tub?  Soaking in a hot tub or spa gets your blood flowing which is similar to the effects of cardiovascular exercise.  The warm water and jets increase your heart rate while at the same time lowering blood pressure.  Although you don’t burn the calories associated with cardiovascular exercise, regular use of a hot tub or spa can give you the some of the health benefits of exercise without causing stress on your heart.

Massage Therapy

One of the most beneficial parts of a hot tub are the water jets. These jets create pressure in the same way you would experience if you were getting a massage. Most hot tubs can be configured to change the pressure and amount of water that comes through the jets and this can help hit certain spots on your body.

Massages loosen up cramped or tightened muscles. This allows for greater range of motion. It also alleviates pain that can be caused by sore or overworked muscles.
