Hot Tubs- Stress Relief
Relieve Stress in Your Hottub
Spending 20 – 30 minutes a day is recommended
Everyone has stress. A little stress is acceptable, and it is even a necessity for a balanced and healthy nervous system. Your body reacts naturally to certain environmental and psychological stimuli. There is such a thing as too much stress, though. If not managed it can severely affect you, those around you and bleed into other aspects of your life.
We show signs of too much stress differently- warning signs are are headaches, tight or sore muscles, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and fatigue. Stress has been identified as a cause or contributor for many ailments, ranging from infertility to severe illness, etc. With 20-30 minutes of daily relaxation, massage, and hydrotherapy in a hot tub stress levels can drastically decrease.
Stay Connected with Loved Ones
Hot Tubs are an opportunity to connect with loved ones. Whether it’s time to talk or sit quietly with your mate, have family time and solve your children’s problems or to enjoy solitude a hot tub can help! With technology and social media we are bombarded with information and the demands of everyone expecting immediate replies or answers to emails. Time in your Bullfrog Spa gives you the gift of escaping from reality- put the phones away, even before stepping outside. Use your spa time to listen, engage, enjoy the scenery and appreciate your family.
The warm water of a hot tub has proven to help balance your nervous system and to maintain its balance. When immersed into warm water we release a hormone, dopamine. Dopamine is produced by the parasympathetic nervous system in our bodies and will ward off the effects of harmful stress.
Soaking in hot water relieves muscle tension and reduces cardiovascular stress. You can stay on track with a happy and healthy life by using warm water and hydrotherapy to manage your stress.* Massaging Jetpacks can aid in effectively battling stress in just minutes a day.
Save Your Life- Relax!
The American Heart Association warns about the negative affects that stress can have on your heart and the way that can make you feel. One stress relief tactic is to take 15 to 20 minutes a day to sit quietly, breathe deeply, and think of a peaceful picture. Under the stars in your spa while in the comfort of your own backyard is a perfect retreat for decompressing. During time in your hot tub blood vessels tend to relax, making it easier for your heart to pump with less effort, improving blood flow and circulation.
