Hot Tubs

Nothing's as relaxing as a dip in a hot tub

Everyone loves a good dip in a hot tub, but did you know that hot tubs actually promote better health, both in body and in mind? Both indoor and outdoor hot tubs have therapeutic benefits that can soothe pain, bust stress and provide relief from chronic conditions.

Health Benefits of Hot Tubs

Both medical and homeopathic experts acknowledge that hot tubs and spas offer proven benefits. Even basic units like portable hot tubs can help you enjoy better health. Here are some of the ways in which hot tub heal:

  • Jet-powered hydro massagers can loosen tense muscles, ease headaches and soothe stress. Hot tub sessions as short as 20 minutes can lower blood pressure and relieve stress-related pain and headaches.
  • Hydro massagers stimulate the production and release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
  • Use hot tubs to massage sore and tense muscles after workouts and vigorous exercise to prevent and relieve cramps and spasms.
  • Studies show links between hot tub therapy and improved sleep; soaking in a hot tub about two hours before bedtime can induce deeper, more restful sleep and is a natural remedy for insomnia. The buoyancy of hot tub water brings relief to overworked joints, bones and muscles, providing an effective respite from arthritis and chronic pain. It also enhances your flexibility and helps you achieve a fuller range of motion.
  • Some studies suggest that soaking in a hot tub can help moderate and stabilize blood sugar levels, providing an alternative therapy for people with Type 2 diabetes. One published study indicates that diabetics who soaked in a hot tub for 30 minutes a day, six days a week, enjoyed a 13 percent reduction in blood sugar.

Save Money on Your Hot Tub Purchase

While a competitive marketplace has resulted in more affordable outdoor and indoor hot tubs, prices are still high. However, the cost-conscious consumer has numerous options for enjoying a quality spa for a reduced price.

If you don't mind buying a used unit, you'll find classified ads an excellent source for cheap hot tubs. Some traditional retailers also offer both new and used models in their showrooms.

Discount hot tubs are also available through online retailers, who have lower overhead costs and are able to pass savings on to the consumer. However, be sure you're dealing with a reputable company, as some online retailers make themselves inaccessible in the event of a problem.

With a little patience and persistence, you can find a great price on both indoor and outdoor tubs from trustworthy, reputable retailers and start soaking your sorrows away.
