Could soaking in a hot tub be a health benefit? Things to consider before taking the plunge

Are you looking to improve your backyard and create a perfect oasis?

If you have longed for a hot tub or swim spa to help you unwind and escape from life, it turns out that spending time in a hot tub may provide other benefits, too.

Here are four potential health benefits of soaking in a hot tub to consider, according to Paradise Spas.

1. Stress relief/pain relief

First off, a hot tub obviously helps ease the tensions of the day. That soothing effect of the warm water and massaging jets may help relieve physical, emotional and mental stress.

Soaking in a hot tub may also relieve some types of pain by relaxing tense muscles, joints and tendons.

Water supports your body and helps takes the weight off joints, which can lead to improved flexibility and range of motion.

2. Therapy

Whether your goal is to improve circulation, relieve pressure on your joints, soothe aching muscles, or simply melt away the tension and fatigue, a swim spa experience might help.

Hot tubs with two powerful pumps from Paradise Spas give you complete control of the strength of the jets — from a gentle touch to maximum muscle-kneading force. And convenient steps allow you to enter and exit safely, the company said.

3. Fitness

Aquatic exercise is rapidly growing in popularity across the country. The appeal ranges from those needing a safe environment to begin an exercise routine.

Using the natural resistance and buoyancy of water, you can increase muscle strength and range of motion, perform exercises without the impact forces of gravity, and gradually increase to higher-level training without adding stress to an injury.

4. It burns calories.

According to a study, research has found that soaking for an hour in a hot bath burns the same number of calories as a 30-minute walk. How ideal is that?
