A hot tub is one of the best investments you can make in your health and overall wellbeing. It offers numerous health benefits, is a wonderful way to relax and can even add value to your home. Perhaps the best thing about a spa, however, is that, unlike a pool, it can be used year-round.
Now that the cool winter weather is here, there really is no better way to relax outdoors without freezing. Let’s look at some of the benefits of cold weather use.
1. It Boosts Your Immune System
One of the worst things about winter is cold and flu season. Along with healthy eating and getting enough sleep, regular hot tub use can help bolster your immune system. Daily spa use has been found to elevate white blood cell production. As the heated water speeds your blood, these tiny healing cells are multiplied and carried throughout the body to the sources of germs or toxins.
2. It Offers Warmth in the Cold
If you’re a winter sports enthusiast, or simply enjoy spending time out in the snow, your hot tub is the ideal way to warm your body up afterward. The massage from your spa jets will soothe muscle soreness caused by winter sports and activities while the heat will help you to relax.
