I love getting flowers and candy, but the best Valentine’s Day gifts are romantic, fun, something you can use every day, luxurious, last for years, and are good for you! Sounds like a hot tub to me. You can probably think of all the ways to enjoy a Sundance® luxury hot tub every day, and since Sundance® has been manufacturing hot tubs for over 30 years, you know they have a reputation for quality and durability. But one of the big benefits of owning a hot tub is that hydrotherapy can help promote the health of your heart. Here’s how:
- The healing action of warm water, or hot tub hydrotherapy, has been shown to relieve stress. One of the effects of stress is constriction of the blood vessels, which over time can adversely affect blood flow to and from the heart. The warming massage you experience with hot tub hydrotherapy can loosen tightness and can boost circulation throughout the body.
- We know that as little as thirty minutes of daily physical activity can be beneficial to your heart and overall wellness. But exercise isn’t easy for people whose muscles and joints may be sore or stiff. The Arthritis Foundation recommends exercising in a pool or hot tub: “When first entering a spa or pool, relax and enjoy the soothing water. When your muscles and joints feel more comfortable and relaxed, slowly begin your exercise routine. Allow enough time after exercising to relax muscles again before getting out of the water.”
- According to an article by the Mayo Clinic staff, Friendships: Enrich your life and improve your health, spending time with friends can reduce stress and encourage you to change or avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits. Owning a Sundance® spa gives you a reason to invite friends over, and to engage in one-on-one time with family members. Hot tub hydrotherapy and friends go together in a heart-healthy way.
While love is in the air throughout this hearts-and-flowers holiday month, remember that staying healthy is important not just to you, but to your loved ones. Just think about the benefits of having a hot tub in your backyard – for romance, relaxation, and heart health.
