In an earlier blog we discussed the benefits gained from using a hot tub to relieve stress.
Research has shown that 80% of diseases are stress related and one such ailment, affecting all ages, is arthritis.
So it is good news that many long term sufferers have benefited from the effect of the soothing heat and buoyancy of warm water to relieve pain and stiffness.
Relaxing in warm water also raises your body temperature, which improves blood circulation.
Another important benefit is that warm water provides a perfect, tension free environment in which to exercise arthritic joints and muscles.
Many of those with arthritis state that just fifteen minutes spent in their hot tub first thing in the morning is a great way to ease away aches and pains at the start of the day. A similar soak before going to bed relaxes both mind and body, preparing them for deep restful sleep, which many arthritis sufferers haven’t experienced for years.
What better, more natural way to alleviate symptoms than soaking inside a bubbling hot tub, available day or night for years to come?
