Healing pain through hot water immersion

March 22, 2015

Does immersion increase circulation?

Yes. Like exercise, warm water soaking heats up muscles thereby increasing blood flow to those muscles. That’s why warm water immersion, such as that provided in a portable hot tub or therapy spa, is frequently the preferred method of therapy for injuries, burns, trauma and more.

What benefit is derived from increased circulation?
Increased blood flow. When more blood flows to injured or distressed muscles and joints, it carries more nutrients to those areas helping cells to regenerate and speeds up the healing process.
Does increased circulation help with pain?
Yes. There are certain chemicals that are produced in the body when muscles are over exerted, such as lactic acid for one. Warm water soaking helps remove pain-causing chemicals that build up in tissues by increasing the circulation of blood. The results are muscle pain goes away faster.
How can I have access to warm water soaking?
It can be as challenging as finding therapeutic spas near your home or as easy as investing in your health and longevity by buying your own personal healing hot tub and having it placed just outside your back door.


Health Benefits of a Hot Tub

Take a Dip in the Hydrotherapy Pool…Doctor’s Orders!

Did you know that owning a hot tub can actually help improve your overall health and well-being? Hydrotherapy provides endless benefits to those suffering with health ailments.

Arthritis Relief

Arthritis sufferers will experience the benefit of calming warm water to sooth sore muscles and joints, while increasing circulation. In addition, the massaging jets promote relaxation and tranquility. Using a hot tub for exercise is also a wonderful way to relax arthritic joints and muscles easily and peacefully.


The use of hot tubs by diabetics has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels, which may allow diabetics to reduce their daily insulin intake. Hot tub usage also helps increase blood flow through the body, which is hugely beneficial to those with diabetes.

Pain Management

Hot tub therapy is the perfect way to manage pain as the pulsating jets provide a blissful massage, relieving stress and loosening tight muscles. Headaches, backaches, and chronic pain can be managed and even improved through hot tub usage as overall circulation is improved throughout the body.


It is difficult for you to exercise on a hard surface? Water exercise in a hot tub is much easier than traditional exercise, and can be beneficial to everyone’s health. The warm water helps strengthen muscles, and provides resistance to make exercise more effective and enjoyable.

High Blood Pressure

Regular hot tub usage can help alleviate high blood pressure by providing a relaxing, soothing environment to melt stress away. Hydrotherapy encourages the release of stress reducing endorphins, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Better Sleep

Finally, if you are one of the 132 million Americans who suffers from a sleep disorder, a hot tub will help you have sweet dreams. Just a short soak before bedtime will lead to a sounder, more relaxing night’s sleep, and reduce sleeplessness and fatigue. More sleep will leave you renewed and invigorated in the morning.

A hot tub is more than just a fun way to relax and spend quality time with your family. It’s your perfect prescription for pain. It’s the key to a healthier, happier you!
