The soothing effect of the hot water and the massaging action of the jets can help to relieve physical, emotional and mental stress.
In addition to overall wellbeing relaxation, the hot water and massaging action of the jets within the hot tub can be an effective way to assist you in relaxing and soothing tight, tense muscles – in turn, this eases aches and pains. In fact, use of your hot tub before physical exercise may also reduce the risk of injury.
Struggling to sleep at night? A hot tub is for you! According to research, the relaxation provided to you from the hot tub can be enough to help you better your sleep. A study in to this found that the hot water promoted sleep which was not only significantly deeper, but also more restful.
Soaking in the tub may offer relief to some types of pain by relaxing tense muscles, sore joints and tendons.

The water supports your body and takes weight off of your joints, helping to improve flexibility and range of motion.
