Hot Tubs - Therapeutic Benefits

We have a large covered hot tub located within the grounds of the spa along with a fantastic cedar barrel sauna.

There are many therapeutic benefits of using hot tubs

Muscular pain relief
Pressurised warm water from the jets apply more direct pressure to a tense or painful muscle. 

Arthritis relief
Water makes the body buoyant and allows free movement of the joints with up to 90% less weight when the body is immersed in water. Once stress has been removed from the joints the body can move freely without the pain often associated with arthritis.

Better blood flow
Hot tubs help cause the dilation of blood vessels, which in turn increases the blood flow throughout the body. 

People who relax in a hot tub for 15-20 minutes before bed time are more likely to enjoy a deep and peaceful sleep. 

Joint Pain relief
Joint pain can cause swelling. Warm water in a hot tub will dilate the blood vessels to relieve painful symptoms.

Weight loss
Hot tubs can help accelerate weight loss when used regularly (around 30 minutes per day for three weeks at a time).

General feeling of well-being
Hydrotherapy can promote a feeling of rejuvenation and relaxation - reducing stress and anxiety.

Sitting quietly in a hot tub can relieve headaches as they reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Increased circulation
The warm water in spas and hot tubs opens up the blood vessels, decreasing blood pressure. This in turn eases blood flow and improves circulation, plus stimulates nerves to boost the immune system.

Assisting Chronic Pain
Hot tub therapy can help people suffering chronic pain by massaging pressure points in the body where pain is at its worst.
