What is a Hot Tub Massage?

A hot tub massage is the combination of three factors – water buoyancy, heat and therapeutic massage jets. Merging these factors together creates an incredibly relaxing and comforting hydromassage experience that can target a number of ailments, bringing much-needed relief to tense muscles as well as reduce stress.

When sitting in a hot tub, your body temperature is raised which increases circulation. The water buoyancy reduces your body weight by 90%, taking the pressure off sore joints and muscles as they can relax with a soothing sense of weightlessness.

Owning a hot tub provides the ability to have a relaxing massage in the comfort of your home, anytime you wish. Hot tub massages provide a number of wellness benefits, including:

Pain Relief

Soaking in the warm waters of a hot tub increases circulation which helps provide relief for sore muscles, headaches, and chronic pain. Warm water, buoyancy, and therapeutic massage jets provide a relaxing hot tub massage experience that melts away tense muscles and relieves tension.

Reduced Stress

A hot tub massage relaxes and soothes tense muscles, bringing you into a more relaxed state. When you are sitting in a hot tub, your heart works harder as a result of the heated water and improves your circulation. Hot tubs have also been shown to help lower high blood pressure due to stress and provide relief from anxiety. To make your hot tub massage even more relaxing, try incorporating aromatherapy into your routine.

Weight Loss

Hot tub massage stimulates circulation which is beneficial for weight loss. Sitting in the warm water raises your heart rate, while lowering your blood pressure – basically simulating mild exercise. Hot tubs also provide an excellent environment to work out in, especially for those that suffer from painful joint problems. Weight-bearing exercises which are too difficult to perform on land can be adapted to the hot tub, providing individuals with an excellent way to stretch and strengthen their muscles without risking injury.
