What are the benefits?

The potential benefits of using a Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub vary from person to person. Much depends on your overall health and how you use it.

Below are 5 possible benefits of soaking in a Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub.

1. Stress relief

One of the most obvious benefits of a Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub is the potential to help ease the tensions of the day. The soothing effect of the warm water and massaging action may help relieve physical, emotional, and mental stress.

2. Muscle relaxation

The hot water and massaging action of the Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub jets can be an effective way to help relax and soothe tight, tense muscles. This can help ease aches and pains.

3. Improved sleep

According to research, the simple relaxation gained from a soak in the Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub may be enough to help you drift off into a more peaceful sleep.

A 2012 study looked at the effects of hydrotherapy on physical function and sleep quality for people with fibromyalgia. It was a small study involving females between the ages of 30 and 65. The study was small and subjective but found that hot baths promoted significantly deeper and more restful sleep. Hydrotherapy helps improve sleep quality along with other symptoms of fibromyalgia.

4. Pain relief

Soaking in a Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub may relieve some types of pain by relaxing tense muscles, joints, and tendons.

If you have arthritis, the heat and massaging action may help ease the stiffness and inflammation that cause pain.

5. Better cardiovascular health

Relaxing in a Jacuzzi/Hot-Tub can raise your heart rate and lower your blood pressure.
