A spa can be an integral part of improving your health and wellbeing

29 April, 2022

A spa can be much more than just an enjoyable and fun experience for the whole family. It can be an integral part of improving your health and wellbeing. Whether you want to improve mobility, flexibility, or muscle tone or are working to rehabilitate an injury or maintain your health as you age, a spa can do it all.

Hydrotherapy and Recovery

The most obvious benefit of a swim spa or spa pool is hydrotherapy massage and exercise recovery. Massage therapy helps to reduce stress and relax muscles in a few ways. Massage releases endorphins, which are hormones that have pain-relieving properties. It also increases the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to the muscles, which helps remove toxins and waste products from the tissues. Further, massage helps improve the range of motion and flexibility of muscles. Finally, massage is a calming and relaxing experience that can help improve your mental state.

With this in mind, our specially designed massage chairs come with an assortment of thoughtfully positioned water and air jets to target each muscle group. Coupled with neck and shoulder massagers each seat delivers a deep and rejuvenating massage experience to help you relax and recover completely. Whether you are relieving stress from a long week or recovering after a hard workout or a tough game, a spa pool from Sapphire Spas can help.

Mobility and Strength

Water-based exercise is an excellent way to improve your mobility and strength and a spa pool or swim spa offers a convenient and comfortable way to achieve this. Water provides more resistance than air which creates a higher level of resistance without increasing the intensity of the exercise. Water also provides buoyancy which reduces the level of strength required for those just beginning their fitness journey or looking for a gentle way to maintain mobility as they age.

Flexibility reflects your muscle’s strength throughout its full range of motion. Through the unique combination of additional resistance and support experienced in water, you can improve both in an enjoyable and reduced-risk environment. By using the fully adjustable swim jets and with the aid of the stainless steel grab-rail you can safely adjust your workout or mobility session to any difficulty level you desire.

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.
