Get a Hot Tub for Health Benefits

Installing a home hot tub can provide many hours of relaxation and fun with your family. Soaking in a hot tub can also bring several potential health benefits. Below will cover how a hot tub can make you feel healthier with a quick installation and electrical requirements guide.

Lower Anxiety & Stress

Studies have found an experience combing jet massage, heated water, and the sensation of weightlessness can reduce anxiety and stress.

Decrease Blood Pressure & Sugar Level

Although sitting in a hot tub initially raises blood pressure, your body’s higher temperature gradually dilates cells, decreasing blood pressure. Studies found people with type 2 diabetes who spent 30 minutes in a hot tub a day for three weeks reduced their blood glucose levels from 182 mg/dl to 159 mg/dl on average.

Reduce Chronic Migraine

People with migraine attacks usually feel tension headaches before suffering a painful migraine. People sitting in a hot tub will feel their muscles are not tense and contracted. This leads to aching and pains subsiding, leasing to relaxation. Being relaxed reduces the possibility of a migraine that is caused by tension.

Condition of Skin Improved

Increasing circulation using a hot tub will help deliver more oxygen and revitalize nutrients to your skin. Both can improve the overall condition of your skin.

Alleviate Pain

Bubbles produced by hot tub jets create a buoyancy that will make you feel weightless. Along with warm water, floating in a hot tub will improve blood circulation, relax muscles and decrease joint inflammation.

Supports Restful Sleep

Most people who feel uncomfortably cold find it harder to feel drowsy and fall asleep. Spending time in a hot tub during the evening warms your body, making you feel much more relaxed. This will help you lose asleep sooner and get restful sleep the whole night.


Homeowners should consider only working with an experienced licensed electrician. A professional will properly configure your home’s electrical system to meet the additional power demands of a hot tub. A proper installation keeps your family safe, preventing expensive repairs required by an improper installation and defective electrical components.
