Hot Tub Health Benefits
Wake up, take your kids to school, go to work, pick your kids up from school, come home, make dinner…then what? Your day is filled with you running around in fifty different directions, but what are you doing to unwind at the end of the day? Having some time to relax every day is necessary to keep a person productive and healthy. Having a hot tub from Mast Water at your home is one of the best ways to do just that.
No matter how hard you try to avoid it, stress finds you. That’s why it’s important to have some sort of getaway, especially in your own home. Hot tubs are a great way to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Listening to the water shoot out from the jets and rush around you is one sure-fire relaxation strategy. You can actually feel a weight being lifted off of you, which reduces stress and decreases anxiety. While sitting in a hot tub will not magically fix all of your problems, it will help you feel stress-free, even if it is just for a short amount of time.
Not only do you feel a release from your mental stress, hot tubs have also been known to give release to physical pain that you may be having. Many Type II diabetics have turned to soaking in hot tubs to help control their diabetes, especially if they have a difficult time exercising. There are some health risks that are associated with diabetics who turn to hot tub therapy for relief, so be sure to consult with your doctor before starting this treatment.
People who suffer from arthritis have also found relief from sitting in a hot tub. The hot tub provides a feeling of weightlessness, which gives your hardworking joints a much-needed rest. There are some hot tubs that provide special jets to target specific muscles. In fact, Mast Water’s Bullfrog Spas allow you to design your own spa based on your specific needs.
Is there really a better way to prepare for a tough workout than soaking in a hot tub? Spending some time in warm water helps loosen and relax your muscles. It also increases blood flow and circulation to your legs, which is essential to a good workout. Always remember to stay hydrated during your pre-workout soak, as your body is beginning to heat up and lose water. It is advised to stay out of the hot tub immediately after a workout, but instead wait 24-48 hours to get back in. This will help your muscles rebuild themselves, as well as increase blood flow.
There’s almost nothing better than getting a good night’s sleep. It keeps you awake and focused throughout the day. That’s why if you have trouble sleeping at night, you should consider soaking in the hot tub an hour or two before you go to bed. Sitting in the hot water will relax your entire body and help your mind unwind after running around all day. The warm water helps loosen muscles and release built-up tension, which leads to a better night’s sleep.
For people who suffer from high blood pressure, soaking in a hot tub for just 15 minutes of time lower blood pressure. Spending time in a hot tub just prior to bedtime can help the body retain lower blood pressure for hours or even the entire night. As always, keep a bottle of water nearby to stay hydrated.
