  1. Weight loss and diabetes

Thought that would get your attention! It’s no joke- studies have shown that regular spa bathing reduces blood sugar and blood glucose levels. 30 minutes in the hot tub, six days a week can get rid of 2 kg’s a month without any dietary or exercise change. Well, every little bit helps right?

  1. Stress and headaches

But of course! Just the thought of sinking a tired, aching body into the hot tub at the end of a day is relaxing, never mind the real deal. When the warm water dilates your blood vessels, the pressure in your head decreases – many a headache has been alleviated in a beautiful spa bath. With soft candlelight, never overlook simple ways to reduce anxiety and stress.

  1. Lowers Blood Pressure

By now you’re getting the idea that the long sit in the warm water has good effect on your blood vessels. The heart rate actually rises due to the hot water, which in turn, lowers blood pressure – think of it as a soft cardio workout.

  1. Alleviates pain and aids sleep

Arthritis, knee pain, lower back pain and any athletic injury like muscle and tendon pulls seem to dissolve in the hot spa water. With the stress reductions, a light cardio effect, lower blood pressure and relaxed muscles and the tension headache gone, the next thing is a fabulous night’s sleep. Just don’t be falling asleep in the tub!

Besides all the good reasons involving family fun and warmth in chilly winters, hot spa baths not only add great value to property but are fast becoming deal breakers. More and more folk are looking for ways to entertain at home to keep costs down without spoiling the family fun.
