What Are the Health Benefits Of Owning A Spa?

There are three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create a relaxing, soothing experience.

Immersion in hot water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, increasing circulation. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by approximately 90%, which relieves pressure on joints and muscles and creates the relaxing sensation of weightlessness.

The massaging action of a spa is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air through jet nozzles. This “energized” stream of water loosens tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.

Of course, a spa offers much more than just a good hydromassage. It’s also your own private retreat that leaves you feeling mentally and emotionally refreshed. Fifteen minutes in the morning can awaken and revive you, and a soak before bedtime can make it easier to drift into a deep, restful sleep. A spa is something you’ll want to experience every day.

The Arthritis Foundation recognizes the beneficial effects of hydromassage on sore muscles, stiff joints, and circulation.
