Hot tubs are wonderful and luxurious in the cooler months of the year. A soak in a hot tub is ideal when your bones and joints are aching and you just can’t “get the chill out.” A hot tub is amazing if you’re recovering from an injury. Your doctor may recommend a soak in the hot tub if you’re suffering from arthritis or even diabetic pain and swelling. There are many unique hot tub benefits, we know!

Let’s face it, we love hot tubs! The hot tub and swimming pool contractors from Advanced Pools, Inc. get busier with hot tub service and maintenance once summer is over. That’s not to say hot tubs aren’t used in the summer — they are — but they are used more often in the cooler months.

If you don’t have the budget or the yard space for a swimming pool, a hot tub may suit you just fine as a way to relax and spend time together. You can even work out in a hot tub — sure not to the extent as you can in a pool, but there are in-hot tub exercises you can perform.

Unique hot tub benefits

Here are two of the many other benefits you will reap from a soak in your hot tub or spa:

Aromatherapy — Certain scents promote relaxation and emotional benefits. If you’re dealing with stress, and in this time of the coronavirus pandemic, who isn’t, right? Stress is more than just feeling on edge. Stress can contribute to poor health and could even lead to an earlier death.

If you’ve ever spent time in a spa you know how relaxed you feel when you come out. That could be because of the treatments, the time spent in a hot tub and the scents of the spa. Heated water leads to relaxation as does a few drops of essential oil in your hot tub water.

Burn lavender candles to enhance the experience of the drops of lavender essential oil in the water. Choose candles and oils in scents that are relaxing, personally, to you.

Hydrotherapy — this is one of the many benefits we’d mentioned above. Soaking in a hot tub and positioning yourself in front of the jets can provide a deep tissue massage and alleviate aches in damaged muscles or strained limbs. If you’re a runner, a soak in a hot tub following the run, can help relax your muscles and help your body recover more quickly from the run.

A soak in a hot tub with the pulsating of the jets can also help aid in lymphatic health. The hot tub can aid your immune system — lymphatic — in the movement and ridding your body of toxins. Hydrotherapy stimulates blood cells and help circulate toxins through your body and then out of it.
