How a hot tub can improve your mental health

Have you ever had a long day and thought to yourself that you’d like to have a soak in a hot bath that also massages your back? Nowadays we’re becoming more stressed, and our anxiety levels are increasing with many different causes. Sometimes we’re too busy to take a break and re-find ourselves. Luckily, it has been proven that having a short soak in a HotSpring hot tub with massage jets can help reduce stress levels, as well as improve your mood. 

The reason why a hot tub can improve your mood

According to Dr. Bruce Becker, a physician and research professor at Washington State University. He found that in order to put your body into a deep relaxation state, you’d need to soak in a hot tub at around 30 to 40 degrees Celsius for about 15 to 20 minutes. A simple 15 to 20 minute dip into the hot tub will also lead to a better sleep and it can improve physical stress. 

Why are under water massage jets important?

Under water massage jets helps your body to reduce stress hormones and it stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood improvers. HotSpring Southwest and Wales offers unique massage jets that moves up and down the length of your back to deliver the most amazing back massage. No other hot tub company has this function.


How does it help with weight lost?

We tend to gain weight when we’re stressed. When our brain feels threatened or stressed, it will release “stress hormones” which can cause our bodies to store fats and makes us want to eat more. That is why 20 minutes in a hot tub can help you release your stress build up and help prevent unnecessary eating.
