• Benefits Of A Hot Tub Foot Massage

    Benefits Of A Hot Tub Foot Massage

    At the end of the day, there’s no part of our bodies that works harder or is more punished than our feet. You often hear people say they can’t wait to “finish the day and put their feet up”, but what about doing more for your feet than just laying them on the sofa?

    When your feet are under stress, blood flow is limited. Plus, depending on your choice of footwear and daily agenda, your muscles and ligaments can be left constricted and inflamed. That’s why it’s so important to your health and happiness to give back to the muscles that keep you upright!

    The Beachcomber Reflex Foot Massager

    A hot tub foot massage drastically improves circulation, transporting oxygen and nutrients to cells as the blood flows to the affected areas. At Beachcomber Hot Tubs, we looked specifically at how we could create a hydrotherapeutic experience that effectively combats foot fatigue. Our team of engineers worked to deliver a massage configuration that delivered professional-grade results. The result is our Reflex Foot Massager!

    Providing intense jetting power to the feet, the Reflex Foot Massage (RFM) fixture fits into our spacious footwell. The upward jetting ensures that you are getting full relief to the one area you really may need it the most.

    As Reflexology shows, your entire body is represented by and connected to your feet, meaning that caring for that part of your body can improve the health and wellness of all of your limbs and organs. While improved mood and increased relaxation are some of the benefits of our Reflex Foot Massage jets, listed below are a few more (you might not expect)!

    Prevents Injuries

    By improving the blood circulation in your foot, RFM jets help with the recovery and strengthening of the muscles in your feet. Adding foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching can further prevent injuries and speed up recovery time.

    Lowers Blood Pressure

    High blood pressure has become very common among people in our high stress society. A 10-minute foot massage session three times a week can significantly reduce the stress inflicted upon your body by the effects of high blood pressure and anxiety.

    Helps Relieve Pain from Flat Feet

    People with collapsed arches or flat feet often experience pain after physical activity because of inflammation and ligament damage. Regular deep massages from our RFM jets can help ease or even cure these pains.

  • [Study] The Health Benefits of Getting Outside for Spring

    [Study] The Health Benefits of Getting Outside for Spring

    As the chill of winter begins to thaw, it’s that time of year once again when we can really start taking advantage of the great outdoors and get back to nature. Spending time unplugged and outside has been scientifically shown as a natural antidote to the adverse effects of stress, a preventative measure against anxiety, and booster for our creativity.

    Despite its well known healthy properties, over the past four decades nature-based recreation has declined over 35% in the US, according to the National Academy of Science.

    Why Stay Active Outdoors

    Learn more about how important building outdoor moments in your daily schedule really is:

    Studies have shown that we  do at least 30 minutes more physical activity  per week when we  workout in nature.

    Makes You Push Yourself Harder

    When we are working out inside a gym, we’re setting strict limits on our pace and the amount of time we are training. Studies have shown that people who take their work-outs outside do at least 30 minutes more of physical activity per week than those who do it inside. The outside also allows our bodies to experience various terrains, hills, and locations, to further strengthen our muscles and joints.

    Makes You Focus

    Trying to concentrate on too many activities or even a single topic for prolonged periods of time can mentally drain us. It even has a name, Directed Attention Fatigue. Being outside and just enjoying the natural scenery can give the cognitive portion of our brain a break, allowing us to focus better and renew our ability to be rational, focus, and patient.

    Lowers Depression

    People who frequent parks and green spaces have been shown in studies to have lower rates of depression and blood pressure. They have also been shown to be more social than those people who avoid the outdoors. We believe there’s no better place to add an outdoor moment to your day routine than in the tranquility of your backyard inside a Beachcomber, which itself has been shown to lower stress and depression and improve cognitive health. Spending time in nature has also proven to be a viable booster of creativity, with a study from Outward Bound participants showing a 50% boost following a four day forest expedition.

    Fresh air itself is full of antibacterial qualities that reduce our risk for numerous serious diseases.

    Helps You Fight Disease

    The Department of Environmental Conservation has published reports that show the correlation between breathing in fresh air and disease prevention. Fresh air is full of phytoncides. These airborne chemicals given off by plants, have antibacterial and antifungal qualities that help plants fight disease. When people breathe in these chemicals, our bodies breathe in these benefits and have been shown to reduce our risks for numerous diseases including cancer. Click here for more details.

  • Do Hot Tubs Really Help With Weight Loss? Get The Facts!

    Do Hot Tubs Really Help With Weight Loss? Get The Facts!

    A few weeks back, a study from Loughborough University went viral, with headlines across every major publication declaring a big breakthrough in weight management. Using a sample of men, the University discovered that soaking in hot water for 60 minutes had the same calorie burn as a half hour run. Even more surprising, the hot water soaks contributed to as much as a 10% higher decrease in blood sugar than high endurance cardio training.

    So what does it all mean? Can we forget exercise all together?

    The real takeaway from these findings shouldn’t be to diminish the impact of regular exercising, but instead to focus on the real impacts hot tubs can create in helping you live your healthiest, fullest lives.

    By combining successful weight loss ingredients, including healthy eating and regular work-outs, with regular hot tub soaks, you can amplify your results and improve your chances of sustaining an overall healthy outlook.

    Here’s A Few Of The Ways Hot Tubs Help You Lose Weight

    • Speeds up your post-exercise recovery time, by providing muscle relaxation, and improving circulation and lowering blood pressure.
    • Soothes joints and increases your ability to move freely (helping you avoid chronic injuries that can keep you off your feet).
    • Promotes an alert and clear mind to help you stay focused on your weight loss goals.
    • Reduces mental stress and alleviates the risks of insomnia.
    • Has been proven to help you fight against conditions including diabetes and arthritis that can keep you from attaining a manageable, healthy weight.

    Beyond weight loss, a hot tub, through the stimulation of blood vessels, can help tone body tissue and reduce fluid retention and swelling. The combined benefits of this has been shown to help diminish the appearance of cellulite.

    So the next time you think about having a soak in a hot tub, remember it’s doing more than just making you feel good – it can actually help you look even better!

    Now it’s time to find The Perfect Beachcomber For You!

  • Why Giving Your Feet A Break Is The Key To Staying Active

    Why Giving Your Feet A Break Is The Key To Staying Active

    After a long day of being up and about, there’s nothing we want to do more than lie back and put our feet up. But why stop there? Research has shown that soaking your feet in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes can do wonders not only for your well-being and mood, but also for alleviating chronic aches and pains – both in your feet and beyond.

    Our feet are what carry us around all day after all. Yet, when it comes to caring for our bodies, they seem to be some of the last parts we consider.

    Looking specifically at how we could create a hydrotherapeutic experience that effectively targets and helps alleviate pain points in this often over-looked part of our bodies, the team at Beachcomber embarked on delivering a massage configuration that would give users all the benefits of a professional foot massage, while enjoying the comforts of being at home.

    Beachcomber Hot Tubs’ Reflex Foot Massage Jets

    Providing intense jetting power to the feet, the Reflex Foot Massage (RFM) fixture fits into our spacious footwell. The upward jetting ensures that you are getting full relief to the one area you really may need it the most.

    As Reflexology shows, your entire body is represented by and connected to your feet, meaning that caring for that part of your body can improve the health and wellness of all of your limbs and organs. While improved mood and increased relaxation are some of the benefits of our Reflex Foot Massage jets, listed below are a few more (you might not expect)!

    Improved Circulation
    Although we use our feet to get around all-day long, the muscles in them don’t actually get too much of a workout. This prevents adequate blood flow in your feet, causing pain and stiffness. Adding a 10-20 minute massage session to your daily hot tub soak will greatly improve blood circulation in your feet, as well as cut down on the foot pain experienced in everyday life.

    Prevents Foot and Ankle Injuries
    By improving the blood circulation in your foot, RFM jets help with the recovery and strengthening of the muscles in your feet. Adding foot and ankle strengthening exercises and stretching can further prevent injuries and speed up recovery time.

    Lowers Blood Pressure
    High blood pressure has become very common among people in our high stress society. A 10-minute foot massage session three times a week can significantly reduce the stress inflicted upon your body by the effects of high blood pressure and anxiety.

    Helps Relieve Pain from Flat Feet
    People with collapsed arches or flat feet often experience pain after physical activity because of inflammation and ligament damage. Regular deep massages from our RFM jets can help ease or even cure these pains.

  • [Study] The Importance of Finding Screen-Free Family Time

    [Study] The Importance of Finding Screen-Free Family Time

    Technology has never played a bigger role in our lives than it does today. While it has opened up a whole new world of possibilities in the ways in which we can connect with people across the globe, it has had the opposite impact on how we connect as families at home.

    Why Go Screen-Free With Your Family

    A recent study found that when a working parent arrived home after a long day at the office, his or her children were so immersed in technology that the parent was only greeted 30% of the time and was totally ignored 50% of the time.

    On the flip side, 54% of children think their parents check their devices too often, while 32% say they feel unimportant when their parents get distracted by their phones.

    Children 8 to 18 are consuming an alarming average of 7 hours of screen media per day (increasing 2.5 hours in just 10 years), and more and more research is showing the adverse effects from over-exposure to screen media on physical and mental health development.

    As parents, it’s on you to find ways to combat the trend and find time to take screens out of the home equation.

    Tell your kids: “Let’s not post about it, let’s just be here and be present”

    One solution is finding enjoyable activities that bring everyone face-to-face and invite conversation.

    When Keith & Judy Scott founded Beachcomber Hot Tubs, they were inspired by the tradition of gathering as a family around a campfire. Much like this age-old tradition, a Beachcomber Hot Tub invites everyone to come around and enjoy the comfort and solace of warmth and relaxation and connect as a unit and with the nature around them.

    This is also an opportunity to easily remove any kind of interaction with technology!

    It’s in this type of face-to-face social gathering, in the physical presence of our family and friends, that we make the connections that enrich our lives the most and equip the next generation with the skills to live a successful, healthy social life.
