The World Health Organisation defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” There are many ways of looking after your health and one way of doing this is to have your very own swim spa at home. Alongside the obvious luxury of owning your own pool that you can use any time you wish, there are many benefits to having your very own swim spa.
Health and wellness
Hydrotherapy helps your health in many ways. The use of hot and cold stream jets has a massaging effect on muscles, helping relieve pain from many aliments, such as arthritis and joint, muscle and nerve problems. Swim spas have also been found to help with stress related issues such as sleep disorders, depression and headaches.
In addition to this, research has shown that soaking in warm water helps lower blood pressure. Hydrotherapy also promotes detoxification, in turn increasing the metabolic rate helping with digestion. It also boosts our immune system, allowing it to function more efficiently. The increase in blood flow encouraged by hydrotherapy means that our internal organs are given a boost, improving their functionality.
Having your own swim spa takes your usual exercise routine, whether it’s a stroll in the park or a rigorous insanity workout, to the next level. Being able to move from your workout space straight into your Swim Spa means that whether you work out in the swim spa or not, you’ll be able to benefit from a relaxing hydrotherapy massage, which will help you recover quicker.
If you’re not usually one for exercise, perhaps a swim spa would be the ideal solution to kick start your new healthy regime. You can start as slowly as you like, adjusting the jets that provide swim resistance as you go to provide more vigorous workouts when you’re ready. Having a compact Swim Spa in your home also encourages year round exercise, you won’t have to brave snowy weather to get the exercise you want.
