Both professional and ‘weekend’ athletes can use their hot tubs to aid in repairing sore muscles and injuries. Neck and back pain, sports injuries, muscle pulls, spasms and soreness are often eased simply by a quick dip in your hot tub.
Your hot tub can also be used as preventive medicine. When you immerse yourself in the hot water of a whirlpool, the temperature of your skin and muscles rise, causing blood vessels to dilate and thus increasing blood ﬂow to the skin and muscles. Turn on the jets and the pulsating water massages the skin, increasing blood ﬂow even more. The result? Your skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased blood circulation.
So, you can improve your athletic performance by using your hot tub both before and after you exercise:
Before you exercise soaking in a hot tub relaxes your body and loosens muscles, making exercise easier and reducing the risk of injury. After exercising, soaking in a hot tub is a great way to wind down and relax your muscles. The hot’s swirling water embraces you… massaging your neck, shoulders, arms, back, thighs, calves and feet. But most importantly, hot tub use after you exercise will greatly reduce or even eliminate the stiffness typically felt the next day.
Then there’s those times where you just want to shut the entire world off. Imagine escaping to your garden at night, by yourself and just soaking the stress away, while you stare up at the stars. We promise, you’ve never experienced anything like it.
Numerous independent studies have proven that a warm water massage stimulates the release of endorphins-the body’s natural ‘feel good’ chemical. Your hot tub will enhance your sense of wellbeing, and leave you feeling fresh, clean and ready to tackle life’s daily challenges.
