Have you been looking for a new tactic to improve your sleep quality? Hot tubs have so many benefits to offer, but improving sleep quality is arguably one of the best. At Colorado Custom Spas, we know how much sleep can impact our lives and, therefore, how it can impact yours as well. How do hot tubs impact sleep though? 

Helps Your Body Relax

A hot tub helps improve your sleep quality by allowing your body to relax in ways that might not otherwise be accessible.

Relieves Muscle Tension

The warm water and jets of the hot tub will allow your muscles to release any tension that they have been holding onto throughout the day. Being able to relax in this way allows your body to more easily drift into sleep. 

How many of us have spent a night with tight neck or back muscles from stress — unable to get comfortable enough to go to sleep? A hot tub can help to solve those problems. 

Improves Circulation and Lowers Blood Pressure

The warm water in the hot tub also allows your blood vessels to dilate, which improves circulation and, in turn, lowers blood pressure. 

Increased circulation helps with healing and recovery. While you sleep, your body will be able to recover more from the stress of the day with better circulation. 

Normal blood pressure is important for heart health and healthy living. Stress from your day can raise your blood pressure, and some of us just have high blood pressure for other reasons. Whatever it is, having lower blood pressure will allow your body to function more efficiently and therefore improve sleep quality. 

Improves Mental Health

Relaxing in your hot tub gives your body a chance to calm and destress from the day, which allows you to be relaxed when it is time for bed. This will help you achieve the best sleep possible, which is important for your mental health. 

Using a hot tub allows your body to release stress and not carry it into the next day. Getting a good night’s sleep lets your mind rest and recover as well, which is very important for your mental health and for you to be in a good mindset. 

When people are assessed for mental health, many times, the difference between what is determined to be necessary for health improvement depends on the quality of sleep. Sleep quality is crucial to everyone’s mental health. 

Reduces Pain and Inflammation 

When you use your hot tub to relax your muscles, this allows them to become less tense, which helps to reduce pain. The heat and massaging jets help lower inflammation in your muscles and joints. 

Lessening pain and inflammation in your muscles and joints definitely helps you get better sleep and wake up with less stiffness. Waking up with less pain and stiffness is always helpful in getting your day started right.

If you are looking to improve your sleep quality, look no further than a hot tub. Improved sleep is only one of the amazing benefits available with ownership and regular use. Our experts are ready to help you explore your options and find the best choice for you.
