Relieve stress in a hot tub, Seahorse Pools & Spas contractors explain

Are you tired of the winter yet? Did you hate having to close your swimming pool last season because you get such enjoyment from swimming and spending time in the water? Have you ever considered adding a hot tub to your swimming pool or outdoor living space? You can relieve stress in a hot tub, soak away aches and pains, kick back and relax and take the chill off of a cool night. Talk with the swimming pool and hot tub contractors from Seahorse Pools & Spas about the many benefits you will reap if you become a hot tub or spa owner.

Relieve stress in a hot tub

When choosing a hot tub or spa for your family you will want to consider what features you want to include. Features include the seating, the jets and their placement, the cover (yes that’s a feature) a heated towel rack, weatherproof stereo or entertainment system or even a hot tub aromatherapy feature. You can choose scents to suit the mood — energising, relaxing and anywhere in between.

You will need to make a decision on the lighting you want in and around your hot tub. The lighting will suit your personality and you can use it to create the ambience for your hot tub soak. Interior hot tub lighting offers both aesthetic and safety benefits.

Don’t forget to decide what kind of landscaping you want to surround your hot tub. Will it be placed on a deck? Installed in the corner of your swimming pool? Located in a corner of the backyard? Consider the surroundings, the atmosphere you’re seeking and ease of access to the hot tub no matter where you place it.

Benefits of using a hot tub include relaxation, stress relief and even relief from muscle aches and pains. The jets can be relaxing or therapeutic — depending on your need. When you’re soaking in the hot tub for about fifteen minutes before you go to bed you may just sleep better. Why? Your body temperature rises in the heated water and that might make it easier to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Hydrotherapy is another benefit and can help you recover from an injury because the heated, pulsing water will increase the blood supply to aching joints and muscles and that can relieve pain.

You can even exercise in the hot tub. The buoyancy of the water will relieve any potential for stress or aches and pains on your joints that you might suffer if you were exercising on dry land.

Ask us about the installation of a saltwater hot tub or spa. Saltwater is a safe, effective, eco-friendly alternative to chlorine treated hot tubs. People who soak in saltwater say their skin feels smoother and softer and they don’t suffer any eye irritation or dry skin. Is this the year that you enhance your year-round water enjoyment by adding a hot tub or spa?
