As most people get older, they become plagued with a range of health problems and issues. Some will need medical treatment or intervention and will have no option but to go with the advice of their GP, however there are a number of conditions that can really benefit and be improved by using other methods such as herbal medication or hot tub therapy. If you look back over the years, the only form of treatment for many different ailments was taking the drugs prescribed by the doctor, but as time goes on, more and more people are wanting to try out other ways of managing their illnesses which will have none of the nasty side effects that drugs can have and with this in mind, we’ve teamed up with hot tub experts, Aqua Warehouse, to take a look at just how they can help!
For anyone suffering from insomnia, hot tub therapy has become one of the recommended forms of treatment by the National Sleep Council. They have discovered through research that using a hot tub on a regular basis can help to break the cycle of sleepless nights and make sleep a possibility again.
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from one of the forms of arthritis, then using a hot tub can help to reduce the pain in swollen, stiff joints and really help to improve mobility. The warmth combined with the massage jets can relax the whole body making it feel almost weightless in the water and can significantly improve the quality of life for sufferers.
Stress is another condition (which if left untreated can lead to far more serious or even fatal illnesses) that can really benefit from the effects of a hot tub. By relaxing in the warm water you will be dilating your blood vessels and therefore improving the flow of blood around your body at the same time reducing your blood pressure to improve your health.
