Benefits of Hot Tub Hydrotherapy Massage

Did you know that hot tubs are an ideal way to improve health and promote overall mental and physical wellness? It’s true! Beachcomber hot tubs can be used for hydrotherapy and act as a natural steroid for your body to soothe and relax drained or injured muscles.

Backyard hot tubs enable you to reap the benefits of hydrotherapy without the money or inconvenience required to visit a day spa. Backyard spas combine heat, massaging (from the jets) and buoyancy to provide the spa user with an awesome hydrotherapeutic experience.

What is hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy, a water-based treatment for pain relief and muscle recovery, has existed for thousands of years. But only recently could people experience the benefits of hydrotherapy from home, thanks to developments in aquatic recreation.

Hydrotherapy uses a body of water to treat a variety of physical ailments. Hydrotherapy can address the whole body or target illnesses such as:

  • Arthritis,
  • Anxiety and stress,
  • Poor circulation,
  • Headaches,
  • Muscle pain and inflammation.

Hot tubs have become a popular amenity that many homeowners invest in, and most models now come with powerful jets that—when combined with the heat and buoyancy of water—can be quite healthful. Hot tub hydrotherapy massage has been proven to reduce stress and inflammation.

Who knew pain relief could be as easy as stepping into a hot tub? Here are some other ways that Beachcomber hot tubs can maintain and promote your healthy lifestyle.

What are the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy massage?

  1. Heat increases the body’s internal temperature, improving blood flow and circulation.
  2. Water reduces body-weight pressure on joints and muscles up to 90 percent.
  3. Jet massage can loosen tight muscles and produce endorphins for natural pain relief. It can even improve flexibility.
  4. The combination of heat and pressure helps the body secrete harmful toxins through the pores.
  5. Warm water environments stimulate relaxation and a sense of well-being.
  6. Hydromassage can help treat anxiety and migraines.

Helps heal muscles

Hydrotherapy activated through warm water temperature and water motion will relax muscles and ease the pain. Being in the water will also take the weight off of painful joints and heavy muscles, allowing them to loosen and de-stress.

Circulation Improvement

Warm water temperatures will raise your body temperature and allow for more blood circulation. When your body is warm, blood vessels are able to dilate which allows blood to have unrestricted flow throughout your body.

Improves Digestion

Digestion is when your body separates the good elements (nutrients) from the bad (waste) in your food. Your body will absorb the nutrients and deposit of the waste. Hydrotherapy through the jets in a Beachcomber hot tub gets your digestive system going and helps your body through this process, allowing it to adequately absorb the nutrients it needs.

Endorphin Stimulation

Massaging waters allows your body and brain to produce and release endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain relievers and will make you feel relaxed and happy.

Aids Cells In Eliminating Waste

As your circulation improves through warm water, your cells are able to eliminate waste from your body more efficiently. This is done through dilation of blood vessels and activation of sweat glands—the site of waste removal. This cleans your bodily systems.

Boosts Immune System

Hot water allows for the movement of lymph, which helps boost your immune system. This healthy movement and a stronger immune system make fighting off sickness easier for your body.

Your personal hydrotherapy spa

The aforesaid physical and psychological benefits take only 10 minutes for full effect. Thus, Beachcomber hot tubs are a convenient and affordable form of home therapy for all types of stresses and ailments. In fact, hot tubs are one of the easiest ways to incorporate massage into your everyday life, which can be particularly useful for athletes, labourers and busy professionals.

In addition to the physical benefits warm temperatures provide, spa jets reduce body pain and repair injured muscle. The jets work to massage and increase blood flow to problem areas on the body. This not only alleviates pain in the short-term but also shortens the overall recovery time of physical injuries.

For those suffering from joint pain—like what someone with rheumatoid arthritis experiences—submerging your body in water relieves the pressure placed on the joints. This lessens the impact that joint pain has on a person’s life and allows them to exercise free of discomfort.

Enjoy the advantages of a hydrotherapy spa

All in all, your hot tub is more than a place to unwind after a long day at work or relax with friends and family over the weekend. Your spa is a great tool to experience the healing effects of hydrotherapy in your life. This treatment will help improve your overall physical shape and help you feel more rejuvenated and refreshed.

Hydrotherapy can be an extremely helpful method of promoting health and wellness but always be sure to check with your doctor before using hydrotherapy for lengthy periods of time.
