If you are feeling stressed or suffering from lack of sleep a hot tub can help you get a better night’s sleep and ready to face the following day with renewed energy. Here’s how a soak in the hot tub can help:
Buoyancy: When you put your body in water, you tend to float. This removes much of the tension in your muscles, so right away you are reducing the physical stress your body has accumulated over the day.
Warmth: There is no denying that the warmth has a soothing, calming effect on our bodies and probably also on our spirits.
Steam: Breathing in steam has been known to lift a person’s mood and calm a person’s anxieties.
Water: People have known for years that water soothes and relaxes. Listening to water flow is soothing. Watching water flow is soothing. Dipping your feet in warm water is soothing . Hot tubs offer all these features.
Massage: The water jets on your back can further reduce muscle aches and tension. Many long-term insomniacs have discovered that a hot tub gives them the first good night’s sleep in years. The trick is to give time for your body to cool itself down between hot tub and going to bed – so wait for between 30-60 minutes before you go to bed and you’ll sleep like a baby.
