Millions of Americans promise themselves on January 1st to live a much happier and healthier lifestyle in the New Year. Most of those New Year’s resolutions involve either becoming wealthier or losing weight. Though, wealth is contingent on several other factors, did you know a hot tub is an effective way to help you achieve your fitness goals? Hot tubs have been proven to help ease the body after intense workouts, but the heat from the spa water can also be beneficial to weight loss. Learn about the health benefits you can gain with American Spa in the New Year below!
Soaking in a hot tub promotes an alert mind and healthy body, which are important to losing weight. A relaxing body and mind means reduced stress levels which are known as the silent killer, and also blamed for rapid weight gain. The therapeutic spa jets help muscles recover after and between workouts while soothing joint pain associated with physical activity. Hydrotherapy benefits can also be beneficial for everyday wear and tear of muscles and joints due to the aging process.
According to a variety of medical sources available on the Internet, the hydrotherapy that a hot tub provides stimulates the blood vessels, increasing circulation. It also tones the body tissue, reduces fluid retention and relieves swelling. Please consult with your medical physician before beginning any fitness regimen.
It’s not proven that soaking in a hot tub will help you lose weight, though a hot tub can help you reach you goal of weight by acting as a resource for you to enjoy before and after rigorous activity. After reaching your goal of weight, it will be gratifying knowing there is a warm bubbling hot tub waiting for you in your backyard.
