Looking forward to relaxing in your hot tub after work or enjoying it with family and friends over the weekend? Not only are hot tubs a great way to destress, they also positively impact your body.
Relieves Tension Headaches and Migraines
If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, spending time in the hot tub can help to reduce your symptoms. Not only does the hot tub sooth any body aches you might be experiencing, but it also fosters a more relaxing environment. All these factors work together to reduce the chances of experiencing migraines and headaches.
Improves Cardiovascular Health
Maintaining a strong cardiovascular system is a significant part of your overall health. Spending time in the hot tub can be good for your cardiovascular health as it increases your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure.
Alleviates Pain that Comes with Arthritis
If you suffer from bodily ailments–arthritis, carpal tunnel or tendonitis–time in the hot tub is a great escape from the discomfort that accompanies these conditions. The bubbles created by hot tubs jets increase buoyancy, which removes pressure on your joints in many daily activities. Increased buoyancy, in conjunction with the warm temperatures, can reduce joint pain and increase blood circulation, which reduces muscle aches and pains.
How Long Can I Spend in the Hot Tub at Once?
Even with all aforesaid benefits, it’s important to revert to an old saying, “Everything in moderation”. Soaking in hot tubs for extended durations of time can negatively impact the body. So, you’re probably wondering how long should you spend in the hot tub?
Since we are all different, there is no fixed amount of time that works for everyone. For example, if you are pregnant or have a heart condition, it is best to use the hot tub sparingly. Also, if you’re experiencing any negative symptoms during your time in the hot tub, it is best to remove yourself from the pool.
