    5 HEALTH BENEFITS OF A HOT TUB

    A Beachcomber Hot Tub is not only a great way to spend quality time with family and friends and unwind after a long day, studies have shown it also offers a number of mental and physical health benefits that can do wonders for improving your overall quality of life.

    Here are a few of the ways a Beachcomber Hot Tub can have you feeling healthier & happier:

    Improves Your Mood

    Submerging your body in hot tub water naturally triggers the release of endorphins as the heat helps boost circulation. Endorphins are our natural happiness makers, and induce feelings of easiness and comfort that enhance our mental states.

    Relieves Muscle Pain

    Hot tub water gets your blood moving, and improved circulation works wonders for muscle pain. Not only does this help in your body’s natural healing processes, but the added therapeutic benefits of jet propulsion help alleviate tension in your body and get you recovered and ready for your next workout session. It’s best not to hot tub directly after exercising however, as your body needs time to cool down to avoid inflammation.

    Burns Calories

    That’s right! Not only are hot tubs great pre-and-post working out, they also serve as a mini-workout in themselves. Sounds too good to be true, right? While laying in your Beachcomber Hot Tub is not a substitute for a cardio session and should not give you the excuse to be less active in your everyday life, a hot tub soak has been shown to burn as many calories as going out for a short walk.

    Helps You Sleep Soundly

    At night, our body temperatures naturally drop, which signals the production of melatonin, better known as the sleeping hormone. Soaking in a warm bath will raise your body temperature, and exiting will more rapidly cool it down, triggering a more faster production of melatonin, better preparing your body for sleep.

    Lowers Blood Pressure

    When your body is submerged in a hot tub, it increases your blood flow, which means an increased supply of oxygen, antibodies, and white blood cells pumping through your body. The warmth causes blood vessels to dilate (or expand) and resistance on the heart is lessened, leading to an overall lowering of blood pressure. We do recommend however, if you have chronic heart issues, please consult a doctor prior to using a hot tub to be safe.

     

    Don’t just look at a Beachcomber Hot Tub as an investment into a good time, look at it as an investment into good health, and use it every single day as part of your routine to achieve the best results.

     

  • Benefits of Water Immersion

    Benefits of Water Immersion

    Throughout the course of any given day, we experience stress, fatigue, and restlessness. It’s the result of an always on lifestyle, and can take a real toll on mental well-being.

    Memory problems, poor judgement, anxiety, and depression are just a few of the ailments that can be triggered from over-exertion and an unbalanced lifestyle. Chronic stress has been linked to damaging the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, and nervous systems.

    This mental state also leaves us exhausted as it lowers our levels of serotonin and dopamine.

    So what does our mental state have to do with hot tubs?

    Studies have shown that being in or near water can do wonders for our mental state, and help us enter into what is known as the Blue Mind.

    This Is Your Mind On Water: 

    In water environments, there’s a high degree of predictability. Unlike busy streets or offices, a body of water largely remains the same and the background is controlled. This allows the brain to enter into a mode of natural relaxation, and helps you calm down from the pressures of the day.

    Minor disturbances, such as ripples and bubbles within the water, creates a sense of surprise which is often accompanied by a shot of dopamine to the brain that results in a natural sense of pleasure.

    The regularity and safety of the environment, mixed with minor movement, is the perfect recipe for triggering creativity and problem solving, and leads to a state of involuntary attention that allows us to get back to the things that are most important to us.

    The sheer presence of water in our life can help us get happier, calmer, healthier and more successful. So next time you think about whether you would have 10 – 15 minutes a day for a soak in a Beachcomber Hot Tub, just think about all the benefits it can bring for you to live your most successful life.
