One of the great things about living in Stewarts Ferry is that the apartment community features a jacuzzi available for year-round resident use. Just reading the title of this post, I’m sure you can think of a million different benefits of having access to a jacuzzi. Here we would like to focus on some of the health related benefits to soaking in the hot tub:
- Ending your day with a quick 15 minute soak in the hot tub 90 minutes before your bedtime can help you get a better night’s sleep.
- If you are experiencing sore muscles and aching joints from the competitive game of tennis or racquetball that you played earlier on our property, relaxing in the hot tub helps to relieve pressure on your joints.
- Improve your body’s circulation and reduce blood pressure by soaking in the jacuzzi as the hot water can cause your blood vessels to open up. Of course, consult with your doctor before heading to the hot tub if you have a history of high blood pressure.
- For those that have type 2 diabetes, soaking in the hot tub no longer than 30 minutes a day for 6 days a week can help lower those individuals’ blood sugar, lose weight, and sleep better.
