Whether or not you have had the pleasure of sitting in one, everyone’s heard about how relaxing whirlpool bathtubs can be. A whirlpool bathtub, however, is not just a convenient luxury. It’s a genuine way to improve your health. Their magical combination of heat and massage power can do more for your body than you ever expected. Here are four health benefits of whirlpool bathtubs:
After a hard day at work, there’s nothing better than a little dip in the whirlpool to help you de-stress. The warmth of the water calms you, raising your temperature, and easing you into a state of relaxation. Combine that with the swirling action of the water, loosening your muscles and massaging your skin, and you might as well be lying on a masseuse’s table.
By reducing your stress level, whirlpools don’t simply make you feel less anxious. They make falling asleep easier while simultaneously improving sleep quality. The science is easy to understand. When you sleep, your body temperature drops; bathing in a whirlpool bathtub raises your body temperature, allowing your body to settle into a somewhat higher, more comfortable temperature. If you take a soak shortly before going to sleep, studies show that your body has an easier time of transitioning into a state of deep sleep, bringing sweet dreams right to your doorstep.
Whirlpool bathtubs can also help ease discomfort resulting from a range of injuries, such as muscle strains, back spasms, headaches, and even menstruation. For those who suffer from general aches and pains, for instance, aiming the jets at specific areas of the body is almost the same as a deep-tissue massage. The tub is also especially great for relieving the pain of those who suffer from arthritis, as the buoyancy provided by the water allows for increased movement. But no matter what injury you have, whirlpool’s can provide relief from pain. The bathtub’s jets dilate your body’s blood vessels and massage your veins and arteries, increasing circulation. By allowing blood to flow more freely, whirlpools help to reduce recovery time from bodily injuries, pushing blood to the affected areas.
Surprise, surprise: regularly taking whirlpool baths can lead to healthier and younger looking skin. How, you may wonder? The heat opens your pores and causes you to sweat, wicking away the oils, dead skin and toxins from your body, leaving it fresher than it was before you stepped in. Moreover, the tub’s high water pressure helps to oxygenate your skin, producing collagen and elastin, two elements that are necessary for a younger-looking façade. You’ll be feeling good and looking good at the same time!
