Why No Home Is Complete without a Spa

Professional custom-built spa in backyard

There are numerous benefits to owning your own outdoor spa. Nothing beats coming home after a long day and enjoying a long soak in the hot, bubbly water. A hot tub is very versatile, from enjoying an intense state of relaxation to being the subsequent center of social gatherings. There are also plenty of health benefits to owning a hot tub spa.

Here are a few reasons no home is complete without investing in a high-quality spa!

Reduces Stress

The primary reason people give for using a spa is for relaxation. It’s like taking your hot bath to a whole new level. Imagine yourself sitting and soaking in the therapeutic waters of your spa at home. Doing so is good for your well-being. It’s a great way of scraping off the negative energy created by stress from work, school, or any activity you did during the day. Stiffening muscles around the shoulders and tightening of the neck are just a few manifestations of stress that can be relieved by a quick dip in a spa.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a study that shows sitting in a spa bath can lower your blood pressure. This is great for those at risk for heart disease or who suffer from hypertension. Of course, if you suffer from those problems, you should consult your doctor, but research has shown hot water like in spa baths increases your heart rate while lowering your blood pressure which helps your overall cardiovascular health.

Promotes a Good Night’s Sleep

Your home spa can be a good remedy for those in your house who struggle with getting a good night’s sleep. Air or water jets give you that focused massage, especially in areas with stiffness and discomfort. Your muscles are relaxed, your blood pressure is lowered, and your heart rate is normalized, contributing to light, comfortable feeling that leads to a good night’s sleep.

Detoxifies and Aids in Weight Loss

A home spa is an attractive option for people with busy schedules who often have limited time to visit the gym and do workouts. The spa’s high temperatures open the skin pores, helping the body ward off toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system and encouraging the body to burn calories. Also, the pressure from the jet massagers helps loosen and break down subcutaneous fatty deposits, making the home spa an effective adjunct to your workout regimen. Home spa sessions should be done in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise for best results.

Helps Reduce Arthritic and Chronic Pain

Spending time in a spa may provide some much-needed relief for people suffering from skeletal ailments such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, and other bodily aches and pains. Due to the buoyancy from the bubbles (created by the spa’s jets), we feel our weight disappear, our blood circulation increases with the heat, the tightness in our muscles relaxes, and inflammation in our sensitive joints is reduced.

An aching body may experience heightened flexibility, strength, and a wider range of physical motion in this state. So many people see significant benefits from hydrotherapy when recovering from back, knee, or other joint problems.
