With summer around the corner, you would be forgiven for mindlessly gazing out of your window and counting down the days until the temperature soars and your garden becomes the source of paradise.
Let’s face it, is there anything better than relaxing in your very own hot tub. Better still, if the winter months have resulted in some muscle aches and pains then the perfect remedy is not too far away…
The Multifunctional Nature of Hot Tubs
Hot tubs are a wonderful modern luxury, with multifaceted functionality which can benefit our lives in numerous ways. Whether you are simply looking to take more time to relax, or you wish to utilise the tub to recover from muscle soreness quicker, the addition of a personal hot tub can provide a surprising amount of value to your routine and overall lifestyle.
If you have ever tried a new workout routine, or pushed yourself to beat a personal best, you will be more than familiar with the uncomfortable feeling of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which can last for several days. Whilst it is possible to push through the discomfort to maintain your workout schedule, hydrotherapy is a wonderful solution to catalyse the recovery process and feel back to your normal self in no time.
A key example of how hot tubs can add value to our daily lives is through utilising your tub for hydrotherapy to reduce muscle soreness. By incorporating the practice of using a personal hot tub into your daily routine, not only will it relieve the discomfort of muscle soreness, but it will also encourage you to engage in healthy relaxation practices which are essential for both your physical and mental health.
How Can a Hot Tub Relieve Muscle Pain?
Hot tubs serve as a satisfying tool for muscle pain relief with the convenience of not needing to leave your home. If you are a seasoned exercise enthusiast, new to exercising or anywhere in-between, incorporating a daily hot tub soak into your routine could be the best decision you ever make.
The discomfort felt from muscle soreness is brought on by minor damage to the muscle tissue and a build-up of lactic acid. Naturally, the body will heal the muscle tissue over time and the discomfort will subside. However, by using hydrotherapy in your very own hot tub, you are actively reducing the feeling of discomfort and encouraging a speedier recovery from muscle soreness so you can get back to your exercise routine quicker.
A relaxing soak provides significant relief from the discomfort of muscle soreness, allowing you to get back into your routine faster and stronger. This is exhibited through a complimentary mixture of warm water which relaxes the blood vessels and increases blood flow to ease soreness, combined with the tub’s jets providing a light massage to rapidly relieve any discomfort. The former allows for increased levels of oxygen and protein to reach the muscles and speed up recovery time, whilst the latter provides almost instantaneous relief to the pain of delayed onset muscle soreness by catalysing the body’s processing of lactic acid. This is achieved by aiding in the elimination of muscle fatigue brought on by DOMS which both reduces pain and speeds up recovery.
The best part is that this can all be achieved from the comfort of your own home, with a simple daily session allowing you to take some personal time to relax and let your body heal itself. Not only does a hot tub aid in this healing process, but it also actively encourages us to take time away from our busy lives to look after ourselves and unwind from the stresses and strains of the post pandemic world.
If exercise is an important part of your life, or even if you are new to exercising, you should consider investing in a personal hot tub.
The benefits of hydrotherapy will allow you to recover with greater ease from those extra tough workout sessions, whilst also allowing you to take time for yourself and make the experience of deep relaxation a consistent part of your daily schedule.
