The heat of the hot tub water combined with the massaging effect of the jets can deeply penetrate your muscles, offering a lasting effect long after you exit the spa.

HOW HOT TUBS CAN HELP
PAINIf you suffer from aches and pains, soaking in a hot tub might do wonders for your physical state of health. Hot tub hydrotherapy has been shown to alleviate aches and pains, reduce symptoms of arthritis, and even help manage chronic pain. Here’s how it works: the combination of buoyancy, heat, and massage work together to lift pressure from your body, relax your muscles and joints, improve circulation, and then reduce tension by hitting certain pressure points. The best part about hydrotherapy? All you have to do is sit in your hot tub, kick back and relax.
SLEEPEven if you don't have any physical limitations or conditions, a hot tub can still be good for your health. Soaking in a hot tub can help relax both your body and mind. Put simply, just about everyone likes to be covered in warm, flowing water. It can even relax you enough to help you sleep. You can add scents to the water or turn on the interior lights to engage in some soothing reflexology or aromatherapy. Using your hot tub for as little as 20 minutes before bed on a regular basis can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, so you can enjoy more restful and uninterrupted sleep patterns.
STRESSHaving a tough day? Has this week been particularly long? Melt your worries away with a nice, relaxing soak in your very own outdoor hot tub. The moment your body hits the warm, flowing water, you can practically feel your physical stress and strains bubble away. Often, emotional stress can be linked to sore and tense muscles, which can lead to muscle pain and uncomfortability. In turn, this can cause a whole new range of stress on it’s own from feeling tense physically. Battle both forms of stress with a wonderful combination of massage, buoyancy and heat from your hot tub. In fact, hot tub hydrotherapy can help boost the production of positive endorphins, which can help to reduce feelings of both pain and anxiety.
ERGONOMICSIf you want to get the most out of a hot tub, it's important to have your body in the right position. Sundance® Spas hot tubs have an ergonomic design. The seats, arm rests and footwells are all designed to properly support the human body, distributing weight evenly and comfortably. Hot tub accessories like spa steps can help people get into the tub safely, while supportive neck and body pillows can keep you supported while you're enjoying the heat. Not everyone needs these things every time they go in a hot tub, but everyone can use them at least once in a while. You can't enjoy the health benefits from a hot tub if you're not using it safely, after all.
SOCIALSharing all of these benefits with someone else has its own reward. It's nice to relax in a hot tub, but it's even better to share the experience with someone else. You can play hot tub games, socialize, or simply rest and recharge from a stressful day. Being around other people has its own benefits, and if you're too tired to go out one night, having a social soak might be just what you need.
SAFETYAlways remember to use a hot tub safely to get the best health benefits. It's not healthy to be in a hot tub if the temperature is over 104 degrees, and some people should be careful in hot tubs, like small children or people with certain medical conditions. Before using a hot tub to treat any medical condition or to treat physical pain, we recommend speaking with a physician first to ensure your best health. Have fun, be safe, and enjoy the many health benefits of hot tubs and spas!
