What are the health benefits of using a hot tub?

The potential benefits of using a hot tub vary from person to person.
Much depends on your overall health and how you use it.
           

           Below are 7 possible benefits of soaking in a hot tub.

Stress relief - One of the most obvious benefits of a hot tub is

the potential to help ease the tensions of the day. The soothing

effect of the warm water and massaging action may help relieve

physical, emotional, and mental stress.

Muscle relaxation - The hot water and massaging action of the

hot tub jets can be an effective way to help relax and soothe tight,

tense muscles.

Improved sleep - According to research, the simple relaxation gained from a soak in the hot tub may be enough to help you

drift off into a more peaceful sleep.

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

Better cardiovascular health - Relaxing in a hot tub can raise your heart rate and lower your blood pressure.

Improved insulin sensitivity - Some researchers hypothesize that regular thermal therapy using saunas or hot baths may improve impaired insulin sensitivity and be beneficial for managing diabetes.

Who should avoid hot tubs?

If you have any concerns about using a hot tub, it’s worth having a conversation with your doctor. This is especially important in the following situations:

  • Heart disease

  • Pregnancy

  • Skin injuries

  • Low blood pressure

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

Possible health benefits of using a sauna

When a person sits in a sauna, their heart rate increases and

blood vessels widen. This increases circulation, in a similar way to
low to moderate exercise depending on the duration of sauna use

 

Easing pain

Increased circulation may help reduce muscle soreness,

improve joint movement, and ease arthritis pain.

 

Reducing stress levels

As the heat in a sauna improves circulation, it may also promote
relaxation. This can improve feelings of well-being.

 

Improving cardiovascular health - The reduction in stress levels when using a sauna may be linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular events.

Skin problems - A dry sauna dries the skin during use. Some people may find that their symptoms reduce while using a sauna, but those with atopic dermatitis may find that it worsens.

Asthma - People with asthma may find relief from some symptoms as a result of using a sauna

Health risks and precautions - A sauna may help open airways, loosen phlegm, and reduce stress. Moderate use of a sauna appears to be safe for most people

Blood pressure risks - Switching between the heat of a sauna and cold water can raise blood pressure

PRECAUTIONS

To avoid any negative health effects, the following precautions are also advised:

  • Limit time spent in a sauna

  • Do not spend more than 20 minutes at a time

  • Drink plenty of water

  • Avoid sauna use if ill

  • Women who are pregnant or those with certain medical conditions, such as low blood pressure, should ask their doctor before sauna use

Steam Room

Steam rooms have several health benefits.

Improves circulation - Sitting in a steam room has been shown

to benefit the cardiovascular system, particularly in older people.

Moist heat, such as that provided by a steam room, can improve

circulation.

Skin health - Both steam rooms and saunas will make a person

sweat due to the heat. The sweating opens up the pores and helps

cleanse the outer skin.

Workout recovery - A person’s muscles will often feel sore after

a workout. This pain is known as delayed onset muscle soreness

(DOMS). It is important to relax the muscles after exercise to

promote a quick and problem-free recovery

Loosens stiff joints - Using a steam room before a workout can help loosen up the joints and increase flexibility, just as a pre-workout warm-up does. Steam rooms can also help reduce joint pain.

Reduces stress - The heat of a steam room can make the body release endorphins. They are known as ‘feel good’ hormones because they help reduce stress in the body. Relaxing in a steam room can also decrease cortisol levels, which is a hormone the body releases in response to stress. When the cortisol level drops, people can feel more in control, relaxed, and rejuvenated.

Opens up sinuses - The heat from a steam room opens up the mucous membranes around the body, allowing deeper, easier breathing
