Home Spas: Relax And Enjoy The Physical And Emotional Benefits Of Regular Spa Baths.

Home spas are recognized as more than just a luxurious way to pass the time. Hot spa baths have been used for centuries by many different cultures. The Egyptians used thermal baths for therapeutic purposes as early as 2000 BC.

From outdoor spa pools through to hot tubs and indoor tubs, the therapeutic benefits of warm water can provide many physical health benefits as well as mental health benefits.

  1. Reduced Stress

    As the warm water soothes your body it promotes full body relaxation. Placing yourself in the warm spa water also places you in a place of physical tranquility, allowing you to switch off from all your daily stressors. Some indoor hot tubs and most outdoor spa pools also have spa jets which can help to rejuvenate your body.

  2. Sooths Sore Muscles

    Whether your muscles are tired and achy from too much activity or tight and stiff from too little movement, the warm spa water will sooth and soften muscle tissue.

  3. Helps Achy Joints

    Many forms of thermal therapy have been shown to help painful or arthritic joints. Regular immersion in warm home spas can help control the pain associated with arthritic or achy joints. Spa jets can also provide relief from pain through a physical stimulation similar to that of massage.

  4. Improves Circulation

    The warm spa water and the massaging effect of the spa jets help the blood vessels to dilate, allowing more blood to flow freely through your body. Regular dilation of your blood vessels also reduced the risk of developing high blood pressure.

  5. Improves Skin Function

    The warm spa water combined with the massaging effect of the spa jets helps to open up the pores in your skin and flush any toxins out that are sitting in the pores. Not only will your skin look better, but improved skin function also results in improved function of other organs within the body, such as your digestive tract.

Everyone Can Enjoy Regular Spa Baths!

In summary, the health benefits of taking regular spa baths cannot be ignored. Whether you want to enjoy the benefits of home spas in the privacy of your own bathroom or you want to share the Jacuzzi experience over drinks with friends, your body will reap the rewards of taking regular spa baths. If spas are new to you and you are pregnant or have an existing health condition, be sure to consult with your local doctor before taking your first spa.

  1. I think everyone should use every opportunity to minimize stress. I have also found spa baths do help achy joints. Lucinda, How often should I have a spa bath to help decrease the pain that I feel from my arthritis?

    • A nice warm spa bath does have therapeutic benefits, but will not act as a long lasting or cure from arthritic discomfort, so as often as you feel necessary, is the simple answer.
      Winter; colder weather is a good excuse to have more spa’s, more often!
