If you ever needed a reason to treat yourself, it turns out that hot tubs are amazing for your mental and physical health.

Besides providing a private place for you to relax and escape, hot tubs and swim spas can help to prevent illness and improve your fitness.

Below, Steve Whalley, director of Hydrolife Hot Tubs’ soon to open showroom in Exeter reveals what else they can do for your wellbeing.

1. Reduce stress

One thing most people know about hot tubs is that they are perfect for relaxation. The warmth of the water and massaging jet streams are a great way to forget your troubles.

We’ve partnered with Jacuzzi® because every element of their hot tubs is centred around creating an exceptional home spa experience. You can use their calming lighting systems and aromatherapy products to stimulate your mind, aid relaxation, and alleviate fatigue.

2. Ease muscle and joint pain

Hydromassage jets are strategically placed to work independent muscle groups, delivering a thorough full body massage. This is an effective way to loosen tight muscles, ease back strain and soothe aching joints.

3. Improve your gym workout

The hydromassage features of Jacuzzi® hot tubs can also target specific problem areas such as your legs or shoulders. This is ideal for gym-goers as it can help to release muscle tension and prevent injury after a day of running or weight lifting. Muscles can recover quickly, allowing you to train more frequently and push yourself harder.

Hydrolife Hot Tubs will be opening a new hot tub shoroom in Exeter in summer 2022.

If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia, investing in a hot tub can ease your pain by reducing stiffness and inflammation.

It was seeking arthritis relief that inspired Jacuzzi® founders to manufacture their products.

As an alternative, they wanted to find a way to deliver hydrotherapy at home, and so their story began.

7. Help families reconnect

Without access to mobiles and laptops, you’d be surprised how much fun it can be to unwind in your hot tub and spend quality with your family. It’s enabled me and my daughter to catch up and enjoy chatting together.

You can enjoy swimming as part of your daily routine, from the comfort of your own home. This makes it easier to work out, tone muscles and perfect your technique.

Jacuzzi® swim spas also use hydromassage technology for a truly invigorating experience. They can be enjoyed by the whole family to enhance your exercise plan. It’s a safe and fun environment where kids can learn to swim, enjoy playing in the water and even bodyboard!
