Whether you want to relax on your own or chill out with friends or family, a hot tub is the perfect place. You can spend time together as a family actually talking to each other, having a drink or just enjoying each other's company.

The bubbling of the spa is particularly soothing and many hot tubs have waterfall features or colour changing lighting which enhance relaxation both mentally and physically by improving your overall well-being and mood.  Soaking in a hot tub before bedtime can help you fall into a deeper, more relaxed sleep.

Ease Muscle and Joint Pain

muscle and joint painWarm water can provide health benefits to people suffering from aches and pains. Large water jets inside the spa allow for a high-pressure hydro massage which can be directed to specific parts of the body simply by moving around and adjusting your body to receive the full force of the water.

When running at full intensity, the jets can provide a deep-tissue massage, increasing circulation and promoting the body's natural endorphins to aid healing. Sitting in a hot tub following intensive exercise or sports training helps to soothe tired aching muscles/spasms and speed up sports injury recovery time.

The buoyancy provided by the water reduces body weight by 90 percent, taking pressure off joints. Hydrotherapy in a hot tub can provide symptom relief to some people with arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis whilst performing non-weight bearing exercise.



Improve Circulation

improve circulationThe hot water and bubbling of a hot tub will cause body temperature to rise, which in turn will dilate blood vessels. This improves circulation, especially to the extremities, and can help people with high blood pressure and diabetes too.

A soak in a hot tub can leave you feeling invigorated and improve the health of your lungs and heart too. The heat, buoyancy and massage elements of a hot tub can provide health benefits to people suffering from aches, pains, stiff muscles, circulation problems, headaches, sleep disturbances and chronic medical conditions like diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and arthritis.




ArthritisJoint pain and inflammation due to Arthritis can be eased with a spa session. The Arthritis Research Campaign recommends a morning dip to warm up joints and make movement easier throughout the day.

According to the American Arthritis Foundation soaking in warm water is one of the oldest forms of medicine, and there’s good reason why this practice has stood the test of time.

Research has shown warm water therapy works wonders for all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints, including fibromyalgia, arthritis and low back pain.


Colds and Infections

There is some scientific evidence that raising your body temperature will help your body fight cold germs. Go for twenty minute soaks every few hours while you’ve got a cold or flu, and make sure to keep soaking until you’re starting to feel better. The idea behind hot tub treatment of a cold is to get your body temperature elevated and to keep it elevated, so try to spend as much time in the hot tub as you can, or at least as much time as you feel relaxed in the hot tub. Drink plenty of water before, during and after soaking and make sure you stay hydrated for as long as your cold or flu lasts.


Diabetes and Weight Issues

For people who are unable to exercise, sitting in a hot tub may be an effective alternative. Spa use is believed to increase metabolic rate and digestion, which research suggests could lead to weight loss of an around 3½ lbs without any change to your diet or exercise regime.




InsomniaSoaking in a spa prior to bedtime will help you fall into a deeper, more relaxed sleep according to the National Sleep Foundation.

The massaging jets and soothing heat help to reduce tension which may make it easier to fall asleep. The weightlessness effect produced by the buoyancy of the water can also be relaxing. Sitting in a hot tub raises body temperature, and the drop in body temperature that occurs after getting out of a hot tub may also induce sleep.

Studies suggest that spending 15 minutes in a hot tub 90 minutes before bedtime can lead to an improved night's sleep.


Sports Injuries

Immersion in a hot tub reduces the body weight by approximately 90% taking the strain off the joints and muscles. The heat from the water warms up joints to keep them moving, reduces swelling by making the tissues more flexible and the increased blood flow and circulation stimulates the healing process thus reducing aches and pains.




HydrotherapyHydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of different conditions, including arthritis and related rheumatic complaints. Hydrotherapy differs from swimming because it involves special exercises that you do in a warm-water pool. The water temperature is usually 33–36ºC, which is warmer than a typical swimming pool.

The water supports your weight, which helps to relieve pain and increase the range of movement of your joints. It can also be used to provide resistance to moving your joints, by pushing your arms and legs against the water, you can improve your muscle strength.

Scientific studies have shown that hydrotherapy can improve strength and general fitness in people with various types of arthritis. The exercises can be tailored to your individual needs, so you can start slowly and gradually build up your strength and flexibility.
