If there’s one thing most baby boomers want to do is feel better and remain active,” says Thad Schaben, vice president of HotSpring Spas of Iowa and Minnesota. “But due to the everyday rigors of life, finding the time to do good things for your body and mind remain elusive. Soaking in a hot tub however can be as simple as stepping out into your own backyard. A 20 minute soak is fast, fun, relaxing and good for you too. That’s why we put together a list of 3 common ailments that can be helped with daily hydrotherapy,” continued Schaben.
1 - High Blood Pressure - High blood pressure is a problem that millions of Americans battle with every day. Many of them have no idea that a soak in a hot tub can assist their medical regiment and successfully bring their blood pressure to a manageable level. The hot water in a spa causes vasodilation, which is a fancy way of saying the blood vessels loosen up and allow more blood to flow, lowering blood pressure. Those with high blood pressure should consult their doctor about the ways a personal spa can lower their blood pressure.
2 - Type 2 Diabetes - Studies have shown that some people with type 2 diabetes can benefit from soaking in a warm spa. One study found as much as a 13% drop in blood sugar from merely taking time to rest in a warm spa almost daily. It's important for diabetics to be careful, however. They should take care that the water isn't too hot, and leave the spa slowly in case of a sudden blood sugar drop.
3 - Arthritis - Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis afflict so many, but a hot tub can be one of the very best things for those who suffer from this condition. According to research, once inside the spa, the body feels almost weightless, so much of the pressure on joints is relieved. Even the Arthritis Foundation supports the use of hot tubs due to the decrease of muscle stiffness and pain that those who soak in spas experience. A spa helps soothe pain so those with arthritis can get back to the business of living.
“We think Healthy Aging® Month is the perfect time to convince people that soaking in a hot tub can improve their overall quality of life. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations during the entire month,” said Schaben. “We suggest that people wanting to check out how relaxing a hot tub can be simply call us ahead of time to schedule their free 30-minute soak.”
