Hot Tub: The Proven Benefits for Your Body and Mind

Hot Tub: The Proven Benefits for Your Body and Mind

Thinking about owning a hot tub? Or, maybe, you are lucky and already have one? Let us go over the benefits of a hot tub.

The Benefits of Spas for Your Health

Improves Blood Circulation

It is true that spas have many benefits for our health, for example, it improves blood circulation. Blood vessels are dilated under the heat, which allows more oxygen to reach the muscles. It also helps reduce headaches. Good blood circulation promotes detoxification, which helps get rid of toxins that interfere with the regeneration of our cells.

Note that a spa session should not exceed 20 to 40 minutes. It can be repeated every day if needed.

Relieves Pain Associated With Osteoarthritis and Rheumatism

Gravity is reduced and there is less pressure on joints and nerves. Spas are therefore recommended for people suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatism. Athletes will also benefit from a better recovery because it helps to prevent aches thanks to the heat.

Promotes Restful Sleep

They also help promote restful sleep thanks to the heat that soothes nervous tensions.

Maintains a Healthy Weight

Hot tubs can speed up the metabolism. This acceleration allows our body to burn more calories and thus store less fat. A good spa session is therefore useful as a complement to a weight loss journey, or simply to maintain a normal weight.

One of the Best Anti-stress Rituals

The combination of several factors makes spas one of the best stress relievers.

Water jets gently massage areas such as the back, neck, thighs and hips.

There is also the thermal experience which, as mentioned earlier in the article, allows thanks to hot water to improve blood circulation. But there is also cold water which firms the muscles and the skin, tightens the pores of the skin and also which stimulates our immune system.

Finally, the effect of weightlessness decreases the pressure exerted on our muscles and joints, which helps soothe pain.

The Treatment of Your Spa

As we have just seen, lounging in your spa has many benefits. But the water in your spa must still be healthy and ready to welcome you. For this, several types of treatment exist.

Chlorine

Chlorine is the most widely used product to treat spa water. Indeed, chlorine is a powerful disinfectant that allows you to have healthy and properly treated water.
However, an overdose of chlorine can be harmful to health and especially to children. The problems encountered with an overdose of chlorine can be irritations of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. There are also risks of chronic poisoning.

Children are at risk of eczema or bronchitis. Chlorine overdose also increases the risk of developing allergies or asthma.

This is why it is important to know exactly how much chlorine to add into your spa. The iopool EcO Monitor coupled with our app give you the exact amounts of chemicals to add.

Bromine or active oxygen

Bromine is more effective than chlorine at high temperatures. Which is a good thing for spas. The downside is that there may be a dangerous chemical reaction if it is mixed with stabilized chlorine (more info here). Bromine is also more expensive than chlorine.

Active oxygen is more natural, ecological and not aggressive for the skin or the eyes. The disadvantage is that it is more expensive and difficult to find in stores. Active oxygen has a limited disinfectant power, which means that doses often have to be re-dosed. This is why it is recommended to use this product for small above ground pools or spas.

A Good Investment

The benefits of a hot tub are amazing. What could be better than feeling good in your body and mind? In our opinion, owning a spa at home is a very good investment for you and your family. However, always remember to protect it from young children.
