A spa is an investment, and worth every penny. If you’ve thought of it just as a luxury, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that owning a spa can significantly improve your overall wellness. We often see Health and Wellness grouped together, and while the two words do go hand in hand on the path to overall wellbeing, they don’t mean the same thing. Wellness is the action; it is what we do to achieve health. Health is the outcome what is achieved if we practice wellness.
After a long day at work or at home with the kids, when you need to unwind, go and soak in your spa. Relaxing in hot water helps to elevate your mood, calm your nerves and take your mind off the worries of the day.
If you have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night, sit in the spa for 20 minutes about two hours before bedtime. Your body cools itself down quickly after you get out of the hot tub, which immediately relaxes you so that you can get a better night’s rest.
Spas improve physical well being in several ways. If you’re an athlete, soaking in a spa can help relax your muscles and improve your flexibility. Soaking in a spa after engaging in exercise or sports can improve circulation and help alleviate aches and pains.
Of course, having your own personal spa is a great reason to invite friends over. Grab some snacks and drinks and catch up on laughs. Your spa is also a great place to turn up the heat on your romantic life. After the kids go to bed, you and your partner can spend much needed alone time together in the spa. If you’re single, bring your date over to soak in the outdoor spa and gaze at the stars.

Owning an American Spa means you’re making an investment in your health and well being, especially if you use it on a regular basis. The benefits to your mental and physical health and social connectivity contribute to a better life every day.
