Hot Tub Health Benefits

Stress is all around us. A National Health Interview Survey showed that 75% of the general population experiences at least “some stress” every two weeks. It’s a proven fact that stress also affects the immune system, which protects us from many serious diseases. Some estimates show that medical community agrees that 80% of all disease is stress-related. We are overworked & overrun, and we don’t allow our bodies the chance to heal before we move on to the next thing.

Health Benefits of a Sauna

This month we’re talking about Hot-Tubbing in the cold, and yes we realize that saunas aren’t exactly hot tubs, but we think they are the PERFECT cold-weather ‘accessory!’

Not only do saunas have incredible health benefits, but there is evidence that sitting in a sauna can ward off cold symptoms! Here are a few other of our favorite Sauna health benefits:

WEIGHT LOSS 
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.

SKIN PURIFICATION 
Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of a sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.

PAIN RELIEF 
Relieve back, neck and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.

Hot Tubs and the Common Cold

Bless you!

With cold & flu season just around the corner, people are always looking for extra ways to stay healthy during the cold months.

Did you know your hot tub has health benefits beyond just a fun place for the family to congregate and a relaxing place to enjoy a glass of wine?

Here are a few tips to use your hot tub to ward off a winter cold:

1. Bump up the Heat:

Raising your body temperature by soaking in hot water can help your body fight multiplying cold germs.  Generally you want to keep the tempearture below 104 degrees or the manufacturer’s recommended temperature. Slowly ease yourself into the hot water- it might sting at first- but the hotter the temperature the more you’ll sweat, ridding your body of the cold & flu toxins (And all that Sweat? Good thing our hot tubs have great filtration!

2. But Make sure the hot tub is sanitized:

You don’t want to make yourself feel worse by getting into dirty hot tub water, so make sure to check (or have a healthy friend or family member check) the water’s balance. Never get into a hot tub if it looks or smells dirty!

3. Soak Often:

It’s okay to soak as often as you’d like while you’re feeling under the weather. Medical professionals suggest staying in a hot tub for no more than 20 minutes at a time. So go from the couch to the tub and back to the couch, as many times as you feel up to it!

4. Stay hydrated:

Even when you’re not feeling sick, a hot tub can quickly dehydrate your system, especially with the temperature as high as 104. So make sure you stay hydrated with plenty of water while you’re hot-tubbing!

Here’s to a healthy hot-tubbing winter season!
