Can a Hot Tub Help Heal My Injury?
An injury happens to most people at some point in their lives. A pulled back muscle, a twisted ankle, or even some injury you don’t remember can slow you down and cause you great pain. But can a Wellis® hot tub help heal your injury? The answer is absolutely yes.
Now, it’s important to note that a hot tub is not a miracle machine. Still, it can help support your body’s natural healing process, especially for joint inflammation and muscle soreness. But how? Let’s look at a few ways that your Wellis hot tub can help heal your injury.
Reduced Pressure on Joints
If joint inflammation or injury seem to be an issue for you, a Wellis Spa can help your body heal by providing some much-needed reduced pressure on your joints. The buoyancy of the water that allows the weightless feeling also facilitates the reduction of pressure. And that can provide a little relief from pain, which can help your body feel better, reduce inflammation, and heal.
Another benefit for healing that can come from soaking in your Wellis Spa is increased circulation. Increased circulation basically allows more blood to move through your body because the warmth opens up your blood vessels. More blood means more oxygen to every part of your body, including those sore or injured muscles. More oxygen means that your muscles will be getting all they need and that they can renew and revitalize that tissue, which is yet another way your hot tub can help heal your injury.
Improved Sleep Quality
As an added bonus, that improved circulation from the warm water in your Wellis hot tub can also help you sleep better. And you know what better sleep can do? Facilitate the body’s natural healing process.
We all know that sleep is important, but it’s especially important for healing the body. That’s why we tend to feel more tired and sleep more when we’re sick or injured. You can help your body’s natural healing process by prioritizing sleep. Sleep better and more deeply when you spend just a little time each day soaking in your Wellis Spa, and, as a result, help heal your injuries faster.
And while we’re on the topic of injury, it’s worth considering how a hot tub can also help prevent injury. Just like warming up and cooling down before any kind of workout can prevent injury, so can warming up and “cooling” down in your Wellis Spa.
The warm waters of your spa are great for relaxing muscle tissue both before and after a workout. And having properly warmed and relaxed muscles can help reduce the chances of becoming injured. So, it’s worth noting that your Wellis hot tub can both help heal and help prevent your injuries.
And the final way that your Wellis Spa can help heal your injury is by allowing your whole body and mind to relax. Never underestimate the power of relaxation for both physical and mental health.
When your mind and body are relaxed, you’re less tense and you can heal better. The water has the potential to relieve pain enough so that you can relax more. And when you’re relaxed, your body is able to function better, including through the healing process.
A Wellis Hot Tub to Help Heal
So, the bottom line here is that your Wellis hot tub may definitely contribute to your body’s natural healing process. Of course, we always recommend that you check with your doctor before soaking in your hot tub with an injury, but the chances that your body can benefit from a hot tub soak are pretty high.
