Time for a Hot Tub?

Hot tub soakAs a growing number of American homes are being constructed on smaller lots, the hot tub is increasing in demand. So is it time to add a hot tub to your backyard?

If you’ve never owned a hot tub before, it’s important to note its many benefits:

  1. Better sleep. Studies have shown that hot water immersion prior to bedtime can help people fall into a deeper, more relaxed sleep.
  2. Stress relief. Soaking in a hot tub, especially one infused with aromatherapy fragrances, can lift any mood and release the body’s natural endorphins.
  3. Family Connection. Consider the quality time you can enjoy in the hot tub as a family, and a perfect hangout you can give your teenagers and their friends.
  4. Overall better health and wellness. Hydrotherapy is backed by many health professionals as a way to overcome aches and illnesses that affect us daily. Warm water immersion has been proven to be a healing and calming tool for many hot tub users.

If you already have an aboveground pool, consider adding a hot tub so you and your family can reap the benefits of both hot and cold water plunge therapy. This invigorating activity has existed for thousands of years in ancient China and Rome, and is believed to reduce muscle inflammation and pain, as well as expedite recovery. Many bathers who take part in this activity also report it as being a fantastic way to beat the blues, as it acts as a mood elevator.
