Relaxation may be one of the first reasons people want to experience a Dream Maker Spas hot tub, but the combination of heat, buoyancy of water and massage from water jets provides much more than just a calming soak.

Together, these three elements provide therapeutic benefits that can help almost anyone enjoy a healthier life. The effects of hydrotherapy are enhanced when used on a regular basis.

Stress is reduced naturally when the body is stimulated through massage, exercise and other means. These activities release neurotransmitters called endorphins, which assist the body in handling pain, stress and emotional issues. Warm water massage in a Dream Maker Spas hot tub is one way to release endorphins, naturally increasing pleasure and relieving stress. Headaches can be reduced as water jets in whirlpools and spas help to dilate blood vessels, increasing blood flow.

Sleep may come faster and longer to those who take advantage of hydrotherapy. The National Sleep Foundation reports that soaking in a hot tub before bed can ease the transition into deeper sleep. While this is critical for someone suffering from insomnia, who wouldn’t benefit from a better night’s sleep, feeling rejuvenated and well-rested every day?

Muscles and joints benefit from increased blood circulation provided by streaming warm water in Dream Maker Spas whirlpools. Skin and muscles loosen and relax, and the body naturally heals damaged areas through improved blood flow to injuries.

Arthritis pain can be relieved through hydrotherapy. With soothing warmth, the natural buoyancy of water alleviates stress on joints, allowing freedom of movement and restorative therapy in an immersive, healing whirlpool experience.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, “The soothing warmth and buoyancy of warm water make it a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness.”

Diabetes patients can see relief of symptoms using hydrotherapy, too. Improved blood circulation from the Dream Maker Spas experience can result in lower blood sugar, according to a study conducted by the McKee Medical Center in Loveland, CO, which showed a 13 percent decrease in blood sugar levels by patients who soaked in a hot tub for thirty minutes a day, six days a week for three weeks.

Other serious diseases such as depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, scoliosis and bursitis may be positively affected by hydrotherapy through a regular spa experience. In fact, some people afflicted with diseases as serious as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy have been known to experience relief of symptoms thanks to hydrotherapy
