Your Health & Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy is a warm water massage that offers a restorative, therapeutic experience. Thanks to the winning combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage, hydrotherapy helps create a sense of calm and comfort as it relaxes muscles and relieves pressure on nerves and joints. Since the art of relaxation goes hand in hand with hydrotherapy, hot tub time allows you to take a break from work worries and multitasking mania that consume so much of your life.
Reduce Physical and Mental Stress and Decrease Anxiety
Hot water, the Fluidix™ jets’ massage, and the weightlessness feeling of sitting in a Sundance® Spa are effective in reduction of stress and anxiety. As the hot tub water relieves the gravity effects on your body, you develop a weightlessness feeling. At the same time, the water gently kneads your body providing a hydrostatic effect and a massage-like feeling.
Soaking in a Sundance® Spa on a regular basis may help to reduce some types of headaches. As you have an overall feeling of being relaxed when sitting in a hot tub, there is little chance of suffering from a tension-triggered headache. This is partly because your muscles aren’t contracted, and your pains and aches go away.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Another aspect of improving your health by relaxing in a Sundance® Spa is the lowering of your blood pressure. This is because as your body strives to disperse the excess heat of the hot tub, your heart works faster and harder. This increases your blood flow and produces extra oxygen. As a result, your cells become revitalized. Your cells will dilate due to the increased warmth and decrease resistance against your heart. Your overall blood pressure will then be lowered. However, you should avoid going back and forth between the pool and hot tub as that would increase your blood pressure.
Spending time in a Sundance® Spa provides relief for a person suffering from arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, and bodily pains and aches. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the pain and stiffness caused by arthritis can be relieved by the water therapy provided by hot tubs. Hot tubs are also a perfect environment for safe exercise of painful and aching muscles and joints due to free movement and increased circulation in the hot water.
Your circulation and heart rate are increased by the heat from your Sundance® Spa. By using your hot tub on a regular basis, the increased exertion strengthens your heart.
Evening soaks in a Sundance® Spa will release endorphins that will help relax your body and calm your mind making it easier to get comfortable and fall asleep faster.
The heat generated from a hot tub can lead to vasodilation. Vasodilation is a process in which blood vessels widen. As your blood vessels widen or expand, pain and tension also loosen their grip on your body. According to the AARP, the soothing properties of hot water are enhanced by essential oils aromatherapy.
