As we head into winter, we are also heading into the “sick season”. The CDC reports getting more cases of the cold and flu during the months of December, January and February than any other months. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to help prevent illness and they could even start in your hot tub. How can a hot tub prevent illness you may wonder. The answer is hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy uses the therapeutic properties of water to relieve pain and promote healing. When your body is functioning at its best, your immune system is at its best too. Let’s break it down.
Hydrotherapy is widely known for its healing benefits. Through the use of jets, pressure and varied body temperature, hydrotherapy can heal a wide range of ailments. From muscle pain, arthritis and sprains to cold, flu and headaches, hydrotherapy can help to heal your body. This healing is also the first step in illness prevention. A body that is already run down from other ailments is at a higher risk for illness. When those ailments are taken care of through hydrotherapy you lower your risk for contracting other illnesses.
In addition to healing, hydrotherapy also helps to restore your body when it has been rundown. There are many reasons that your body gets run down. It could be that an injury or illness has taken its toll. It could be that you are run down from day-to-day life and stress. Whatever the cause, hydrotherapy can help to restore your body. The heat can relieve stress and help you sleep better. It also hydrates your cells improving your skin and muscle tone. Once again these things all help your body to function at its peak. When your body is functioning properly, you are ready to fight off illnesses that come your way.
Finally, hydrotherapy helps your body defend against things that try to take you down. Hydrotherapy can help provide regular detoxification for your body. It also stimulates your immune system so it is ready to work. By increasing blood flow, hydrotherapy improves your internal organ function. All of these things work together defending your body against illnesses that try to invade.
