A good night’s sleep is a proven part of a healthy lifestyle that works to promote health and well-being. When tossing and turning prevent you from getting the restorative sleep you need, a relaxing soak in the hot tub can help.
With heat, massage and buoyancy, here are three ways a relaxing dip in the family spa can help you get deep, restful sleep.
Calm the Mind, Soothe the Body
In today’s ‘always-on’ world, it’s next to impossible to get away from distractions. Most of us are attached to our cell phones and sit in front of television late into the evening before trying to fall asleep. With a hot tub at home, it’s easy to adjust the evening routine to something more relaxing—the key to drifting off effortlessly. A twenty-minute soak before bed soothes the body and calms the mind, so you can get the rest you need to be your best.
Let Hydromassage Erase Stress
Whether we want to or not, most of us replay the days events, triggering elevated stress and anxiety. Once the brain is on heightened alert, sleep is next to impossible. A hot tub offers a fast, practical way to reduce stress. Soaking in hot, massaging water targets tight, stiff muscles and joints, relaxing on contact. Hot tub massage loosens a stiff neck, allows the shoulders to relax and lets the body transition from awake to sleep comfortably.
The Science Behind Hot Tubbing and Sleep
There’s a scientific reason behind using a hot tub to promote sleep too! Immersion in warm water is relaxing, but consistent, elevated heat—the kind you experience in a hot tub—alerts the brain that sleep is near. A relaxing soak raises core body temperature. But when you get out, temperature drops rapidly. This decrease in body temperature sets the stage for deep, restorative sleep.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve it!
It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.
