With many people wanting to take a holistic approach to life and, specifically, to improving their health, it’s not surprising that sales of hot tubs, spas and accessories have increased over the last few years. What was once seen as an item owned only by the rich and famous, due in part to their cost which, until recent years, could have been regarded as astronomical, has now become popular amongst all parts of society thanks to a wealth of benefits. After all, if you treat your body from several different angles you will see a greater improvement in your overall health and well being. So what does this holistic approach entail? We thought we’d take a look and, in particular, at how hot tubs can help!
“Holistic” refers to a way of treating the whole body and includes things such as the mind, body, emotions and spirit and can see some encouraging results. This is how a hot tub could help you to not only feel better physically but mentally as well! They’re a great stress reliever and can do wonders for both mind and body.
Physically, a hot tub can be extremely helpful to those suffering from pain, whether it’s just general everyday aches and pains from advancing years or muscle stiffness caused by too many training sessions, relaxing in the warm water will help to release any tension in the body. Of course pain can be caused by a specific illness or health condition such as arthritis or fibromyalgia and once again the warmth and buoyancy of the water can help. Not only does the heat do wonders to curb the pain experienced but the jets massage, further helping to induce a state of relaxation. Relaxing in a hot tub is as much about your mental state as physical and, with that in mind, they’re, as far as Aqua Warehouse are concerned, underutilised to that effect.
Hot tubs are also helpful when battling a mental problem such as depression or anxiety. They encourage the release of endorphins which help to make the body and mind feel good and can sometimes avoid the need of anti-depressants or other medication. Whilst they may not always be a direct replacement, they can be a great way to aid relaxation which, above all else, is often one of the goals of such medications.
Hot tubs can have a profound effect on your emotional state as well. If you are feeling cross or agitated or are finding it hard to calm your mind then taking time out in a hot tub will certainly produce a good effect; particularly if you combine the experience with the addition of an aromatherapy product designed for that purpose. So, by using a hot tub you could be treating your whole body without realising. No wonder people are reporting such good results.
At the end of the day; give hot tub therapy a go! It’s a great holistic therapy and there’s no surprise that their popularity is growing year on year!
