Overall Stress ReliefCaldera spas - overall stress relief

Stress is one of your body's natural reactions to certain environmental and psychological stimuli. Everybody has it, and a small amount is okay and even necessary to maintain a healthy nervous system balance. However, too much stress can be incredibly harmful to your health and even debilitating.

Stress has been identified as a cause or contributor for many ailments, from infertility to severe illness and more. The most common symptoms or signs of too much stress are headaches, tight or sore muscles, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and fatigue. The good thing: stress can be greatly reduced and even eliminated with 20-30 minutes of daily relaxation, massage, and hydrotherapy in a hot tub.

Muscle Recovery and Faster HealingCaldera Spas - deeper relaxation

Medical professionals suggest warmth to increase circulation and assist healing. Time in a warm spa, especially those equipped with soothing jets, helps increase circulation so the blood can supply nutrients to help cells and tissues regenerate.

According to the textbook Comprehensive Aquatic Therapy by Drs. Bruce Becker and Andrew Cole, “immersion in warm water can lead to a faster and longer-lasting recovery. An environment which is less prone to cause pain, and is even pleasurable, makes immersion in warm water a unique healing environment.”

A Deeper, More Relaxed Sleep

The deep, relaxing sensation you get from time spent soaking in a spa helps release tension and starts you on a path to a restful sleep. Once you’re in a warm spa, your body’s temperature is raised, which increases blood circulation. When you leave the spa, your core temperature lowers slowly, which signals the body that it’s time to sleep.

Natural Pain Relief  From ArthritisCaldera spas provides natural pain relief from arthritis

According to the Arthritis Foundation, time in a hot tub creates a helpful environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. Heated water raises body temperature, increases blood circulation and water’s buoyancy relieves stress on joints and muscles to encourage better movement. When jets are used, the warm water massage relaxes muscles, ligaments and tendons and stimulates the release of endorphins--the body’s natural pain reliever.

An Arthritis Foundation publication related to spas, pools and arthritis states “Regular sessions in your hot tub keep joints moving. It restores and preserves strength and flexibility, and also protects your joints from further damage.”
