Hydrotherapy Benefits – Hot Tub

There’s nothing quite like soaking in a nice bubbling hot tub! Whether it be a quiet time alone, or in a setting with a few friends, it’s the perfect way to relax, unwind, and get away from the stressors that can zap the joy out of life. It’s definitely an enjoyable way to drown out life’s anxieties and our bodies’ aches and pains. But not only does it feel good, soaking in a hot tub can bring many health benefits.

The word SPA is actually an acronym for the Latin “Salus Per Aquam” meaning “health from water.” Spas have been used for therapy and relaxation for hundreds of years, from such ancient cultures as the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.

The three factors that make a spa work so well is heat, buoyancy and massage. It’s the perfect combination to create a totally relaxing hydro massage experience. A hot tub’s heat raises your body temperature, increasing circulation. The water’s buoyancy reduces your body weight by about 90%, relieving pressure on muscles and joints, creating a relaxing sensation of weightlessness. Through massage, people have reported that they experience the following benefits:

  • Relief of aches and pains

  • Tension relief in muscles

  • Reduction of anxiety and stress

  • Total, full-body relaxation

“Soaking in a spa simulates exercise. It increases the heart rate, yet it doesn’t increase blood pressure. In fact, study participants who relaxed in spas had a decrease in blood pressure, while participants who exercised on bicycles experienced an increase in blood pressure. The regular use of spas and hot tubs gives you some of the same health benefits of exercise but with less heart stress.” – Mayo Clinic: Mayo Clinic Ok’s Spas for Heart Patients

Here at Bow Tie Massage, we use the hot tub for hydrotherapy. To make it more healing, we add 100% Peppermint Essential Oil to help open up your bronchial passages and sinuses.  There are 51 hydrotherapy jets with nozzles of various sizes, pressures and configurations that provide a therapeutic massage that you can control from gentle to intense. Some of the jets will hit pinpoint muscles around your neck; others will focus on your back and legs. After your 15 minute session, your muscles are now more relaxed and loosened, and the table massage can begin.
