Shopping for a hot tub? This decision can truly change your life. It sounds dramatic, but it’s true. And we’ll prove it in the 2 or so minutes it takes to read this blog! To determine the real value of a home spa, weigh the cost of a hot tub vs. the improvement in your quality of life when buying a hot tub.
A spa is an investment in you. It adds up to better health and better relationships. It’s hard to put a dollar value on transforming your life, but here are just a few ways a portable home spa can repay your investment:
Egyptian royal soaks. Roman baths. Japanese onsen. Russian banya. Turkish hamam. Swiss shower. Scotch hose. For millennia, people around the world have recognized the benefits of water therapy. It’s true what they say: Water is life. And hot water immersion helps heal the body, heart and mind.
Say it with us: Spahhhh. Massage is a time-honored and proven wellness technique. The jets in a high-quality hot tub should be as effective as the hands of a skilled masseuse. Even better? With your at-home spa, you can enjoy the benefits of daily massage any time you want, all the time! If you do the math, it’s just a few dollars a day. You can even spread the cost over time by financing your hot tub. It’s like having a personal masseuse!
Deadlines. Long lines. Age lines. Time in a hot tub equals pure relaxation, and all those lines seem to disappear. People who make hot tub use part of their daily ritual become centered, calm and enjoy time for self-reflection. Studies show that time in hot water can reduce the effects of stress. Warm water immersion helps your body release dopamine, the naturally-produced “feel good” drug. Soaking in a hot tub can also help you enjoy better (and more) quality sleep. And a recent study by Dr. Steve Faulkner, a researcher at Loughborough University, shows that hot water can have similar benefits to exercise.
Hot tubs offer the perfect setting to spend quality, device-free time with the people who matter most to you. If you have kids, you’ll soon discover that “spa time” is a safe, warm place to talk, listen and share. Need a couples retreat? A hot tub is your at-home, anytime, just-in-time place to reconnect and rekindle romance.
A hot tub can be the centerpiece of a beautiful backyard or jaw-dropping spa design. With lighting, water features and detailed cabinetry that rivals high-end furniture, your hot tub will add to the overall look and feel of luxury and wellness in your home.
Hot tubs are popular for personal use and weekend evenings with family and friends. But they can also be the perfect addition to a vacation home or getaway retreat. Did you know you can monitor your spa remotely and add hot tub accessories and top-of-the line audio and entertainment? Plus, modern hot tubs are highly energy-efficient and easy to maintain. You can even cool your hot tub in warmer months to serve as a splash pool for kids or cold water hydrotherapy for adults and athletes.
Regular hot tub use can alleviate the symptoms of many common ailments, including diabetes, arthritis and fibromyalgia. People with joint pain* find relief in the buoyancy of submersion, as the pressure of gravity floats away. An ozone sanitizing system is a great option for those who have sensitive skin or prefer natural-feeling water with fewer chemicals. Many athletes find that warm water – and sometimes cold – hydrotherapy disperses lactic acid to relieve muscle soreness.
These are just 7 ways a hot tub can change your life. How will you add to the list?
