The Therapeutic Benefits of Hot Tubs

Therapeutic Benefits

A number of studies are now suggesting that stress is as great a threat to health as smoking or not exercising. Learning to control stress is our life-long objective. Some of us are lucky to be stressed only occasionally. Many of us find stress a constant companion..

Stress levels are at an all-time high. According to the Mental Health Association, currently more than 50% of all Americans suffer adverse health effects due to stress. Certainly, on a more obvious level, stress diminishes the quality of life by reducing feelings of contentment and accomplishment, and relationships are often threatened.

Simpsons Spas understands that eliminating stress is rarely practical or feasible, but there are many ways to reduce its impact. Consider as many stress relief options as possible. Examples include the following:

Get away from routines. Take a vacation, have a barbecue in the back yard, spend an afternoon at an unfamiliar or a once-favourite park.

Replace unnecessary chores with pleasurable or interesting activities.

Make the time for recreation.

Soaking in a Spa for many people is the perfect solution to control stress. Feel calmer, loosen tight muscles, and relax after a hard day of work or play. Soaking away your stress will help you enjoy life and will not only contribute to better health, but a greater ability to succeed in your own agenda.

The many warm-water massage options release tension from the soles of your feet to your neck and shoulders. Achieve total relaxation in a Spa. Relaxation lowers blood pressure, respiration, and pulse rates, releases muscle tension, and eases emotional strains.

No one should expect a total resolution of stress from any one approach, but if done regularly, soaking in a Spa can be one effective tactic toward your goal of relaxation and stress reduction.

Water is as life sustaining as the air we breathe. Water therapies, particularly those involving warm water combined with massage, have proven effective throughout the centuries. People enjoyed mineral and thermal water baths as early as 500 B.C. in Greece. The ancient Romans were so convinced of the therapeutic value of thermal water that for some 600 years their medical treatments were almost exclusively centred on the Baths, which were also the communal meeting places of the time. Spas and bathhouses have long been popular in Egypt, Finland, Germany, Spain and Turkey; Japanese teak wooden tubs are usually cited as the first at-home hot tubs.

Today, spa and hot tub water therapies are highly valued for their relaxing, rejuvenating, and naturally rehabilitative qualities, and  Spas remain a favourite social setting.


Trainers, physical therapists, and other health care professionals recommend soaking in the warm water of a spa to alleviate the symptoms of muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries, and to accelerate the healing process.

Warm water physiotherapy is one of the safest treatments available. The flow of warm water eases muscle tension, and relieves pressure on surrounding nerves, joints, and blood vessels. Movement becomes easier, which is especially important for those suffering from arthritis and back pain.

Hot Tub jets may be used to target specific pressure points for deep muscle massage. The benefits of massaging the hands and feet go beyond comforting relief for just those areas. For centuries we have found that specific points on patients’ feet and hands affect healing in other parts of the body.

Exercising in tepid water is a wonderful way to improve flexibility and strength, build muscle endurance and balance, combat the aging process, and boost your cardiovascular system. The warm water of a Hot Tubs also greatly reduces stress on joints and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller.

Even non-exercisers or patients recovering from accidents or injuries can benefit from performing gentle, easy-flowing movements in the water of a Hot Tub. By working with the water’s natural resistance, even a mild water workout can tone muscles and boost metabolism..
