The Major Health Benefits Of Soaking In A Tub

SOAK

Improved Blood Circulation.

Do you ever find yourself suffering from cold limbs or numbness even when you’re perfectly warm? These may be symptoms of poor circulation. One way to address poor circulation is to soak in a hot tub of water for 30 to 40 minutes. Hot water improves circulation by relaxing the blood vessels.

Better Skin

If you feel like your skin has been looking dull and dry, it may be due to the fact that you are not bathing enough. Sure, we know you shower, but bathing affects your body very differently than a simple shower does. One major organ that misses out when you skip that bath time is your skin! Soaking in warm water stimulates detoxification by kicking your kidneys, liver, colon, and lungs into gear. Bathing regularly will bring back that glow, and help clear out toxins through your skin that can’t be removed any other way!

Reduced Arthritis Pain

For those of you suffering from Arthritis, regular baths can help manage pain and inflammation in the body. When the body is submerged in water it experiences hydrostatic pressure, and decreases gravity’s affect on the body. This relives tired and sore joints of the pressure they usually experience day-to-day. The healing affects of this reaction are compounded by hot water because hot water dilates blood vessels, and relaxes muscles as circulation increases.

Stress and Anxiety Reduction

Last but not least, taking a good soak is good for the mind as well. Studies have shown that soaking in a tub of hot water decreases stress and anxiety. Research has also shown that submerging yourself in a bath that has jets has extra-healing affects. Moving water stimulates touch receptors in the skin, which relives tense muscles, and the steam helps to clear your lungs. All of this adds up to a clearer mind and even better sleep!
