Rehab and Respite
A spa is a great way to get some respite from long-term conditions too. For instance, many people report reduced symptoms of chronic conditions such as arthritis from regular spa use. The warm water increases blood flow and loosens muscles and joints. This can help to ease pain and stiffness. The buoyancy of the water also helps to support the body and take pressure off the joints. In addition, the jets massage muscles and increase circulation, which helps to reduce pain and swelling.
A spa pool can also be used as a powerful tool to rehabilitate after surgery or an accident. Many of the benefits that make swim spas ideal for general exercise aid in rehabilitation too. The water reduces the weight and impact on joints and muscles, allowing for a much lower impact workout. In addition, the resistance of the water means no additional loading from weights is required, the force of your muscles acting against the water is sufficient to stimulate muscle and joint recovery.
Sleep Well and Live Well
Exercise improves sleep by regulating the body's natural sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm. The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who exercise regularly enjoy improved sleep quality and duration. Exercise also helps to control weight, anxiety, and stress levels – all of which can interfere with good sleep. Additionally, during exercise, our bodies secrete endorphins, which are hormones that have a calming effect and can help us to snooze more soundly.
Many of these benefits that improve the quality of sleep are also linked to the management of both acute and chronic health ailments. For example, weight loss and reduced stress are closely linked to improvements in conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
In addition to sleeping better, regular exercise in water, even just stretching or walking activates deep core muscles. While land-based workouts typically only activate a limited range of muscles, the flow of water, which can be further controlled with the use of swim jets, forces all core muscles including your deep-core muscles in your back and sides to activate for full stability. This translates into improved joint health and better posture, which in turn contribute to higher energy levels during the day and better sleep at night.
A spa can deliver very real physical and mental health benefits well beyond the pure pleasure of relaxation. If you want to find out more about how Sapphire Spas can help you improve your health and well-being talk to one of our friendly team members today.
