The Surprising Health Benefits of Hot Tubs

New studies show that at-home hot tub therapy can help patients with arthritis, insomnia, and Type 2 Diabetes. With new energy-efficient models by Hot Spring, hot tubs are becoming a significant source of therapy and relaxation in American homes.
Aug. 16, 2009 - PRLog -- Recent studies show that hot tub therapy is not just a luxurious and fun way to spend an evening: it actually has visible health benefits. Furthermore, advancements in technology have made some hot tubs very energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, so now is the ideal time to join the many who thrive from the low-maintenance benefits which hot tubs can offer.

Soaking in a hot tub provides three important elements which have been shown to improve physical and emotional health: heat, buoyancy, and massage. For the 1 in 3 Americans who have some form of arthritis, hot tubs exercise and relax the muscle joints which may cause pain during simple daily tasks, allowing patients to feel more comfortable at home and outdoors.

Hot tubs also help diminish insomnia, which affects almost 75% of the population on a regular basis. Not only does the experience reduce the stress which often causes sleepless nights, but a recent study showed that a drop in body temperature helps one fall into a deeper sleep. It was suggested that soaking in 103-degree water 90 minutes before bedtime for just 15 minutes is a natural and effective way to induce sleep without the side effects of commercial sleep aids.

The most surprising of all, however, is the positive effect which hot tubs have on patients with Type 2 Diabetes. A Study at the McKee Medical Center showed that patients who spent 30 minutes per day in a hot tub reported a 13% decrease in blood sugar levels, improved sleep, and a higher sense of well-being. Even if you do not suffer from one of these ailments, a hot tub is a natural and successful in stress relief, blood pressure, headaches, and the acceleration of the healing process.

But where do you start? Hot tubs have the reputation of being unwieldy, expensive, and wasteful, but with new technologies, they are becoming an easy-to-maintain, energy efficient, at-home healing sanctuary.
