Hydrotherapy as a Benefit of Swim Spas

For years, people have been talking about the benefits of hydrotherapy. Find out how you can get this from a swim spa.

There’s nothing like soaking in a tub of warm water after a long, tiring day to alleviate everyday stress. While plain soaking in non-moving water is heavenly enough for most people, there’s something better – soaking in a hydrotherapy tub, something that swim spas offer. The massaging jets of a swim spa produce numerous benefits for the tired body.

Stress reliever
For most of us, stress is a constant presence in life. We may not be able to avoid stress entirely but we can do something to ease the load it gives us every day. What better way to take away stress than by taking a much-deserved soak in a hydrotherapy tub? The clean, bubbling water produced by the jets gives an immediate effect on one’s adrenalin response. It encourages the release of endorphins in the body, which is responsible for one’s sense of well-being.

Use the swim spa at least three times a week to wash away the stress from your body. Elevate the swim spa experience by lighting a candle or two and using scented oils for complete ambiance.

Better sleep
Have trouble sleeping lately? Soaking in your swim spa during the evening will do wonders for your sleep. The feel and sound of water calms you down to prepare your body for rest. Your temperature will rise when you get into the water and will decrease when you leave the tub. The drop in your body’s temperature will help your body get a deep and satisfying sleep.

Joint and Muscle Health
We all know how heavenly a massage feels like for aching joints and muscles, right? Now think about warm water gently massaging your body, the jets applying pressure to your muscles. Warm water often provides relief to injured or sore muscles and joints.

Ask the Doctor
Although hydrotherapy is recommended for almost everyone, a doctor’s advice is still needed for people with diabetes, arthritis, and post-traumatic stress disorder. If you have these, or any other, concerns get your doctor’s approval before indulging in a swim spa.

Safe Exercise
High-impact sports and exercises are not for everyone. However, instead of resorting to being a couch potato, why not use swimming for low-impact but effective exercise? You don’t need a large pool for this. You can do your water workout in a swim spa that has different settings and features for swimming exercises. This will give you the workout you need without over-exertion.
