Is A Hot Tub Good For You?
Hot tubs and spas continue to be popular, with 160 million people making at least one visit to a spa last year, reports the International Spa Association.
From stress reduction to the relief of arthritis pain, people rely on their hot tubs to feel better. Keeping your hot tub clean and free from germs lets you use your hot tub without the risk of picking up other medical problems, such as an infection.
The International Hot Tub Association cites medical studies that have shown that hot tub use can be beneficial to people with mild chronic heart illness, arthritis symptoms and sleep disorders.
WebMD says that when used correctly, people who use hot tubs report a reduction in pain and stiffness. The heat relaxes muscles, increases blood flow to the painful areas, and reduces muscle spasms.
