Hot Tub Health Benefits
Health benefits hot tubs,the health benefits of hydro therapy have been known for thousands of years. Hydromassage is a physical and mental experience, the heat, buoyancy and massage create a perfect environment that can be used to treat any number of ailments from arthritis to minor sports injuries.

It also helps to reduce blood pressure and high blood sugar levels. And the loss of 90% of bodyweight relieves pressure on joints and muscles, creating a relaxing sensation you cannot get in a normal bath or spa.
The massaging action comes from jets positioned in the side of the tub. These send a mixture of warm water and air through nozzles, gently massaging away your aches and stresses. Soaking in a hot swirling tub will leave you relaxed, mentally and physically. Twenty minutes in the morning can give you a fresh start, and a long soak before bed can give you a great night’s sleep.
