Stress is a natural reaction inside your body to different environmental and psychological stimuli. A small amount of stress can help you maintain a healthy nervous system. In-fact, the stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life, giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid a car accident.
But if you’re experiencing too much stress, it can cause many debilitating symptoms and illnesses. Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body. It can suppress your immune system, upset your digestive and reproductive systems, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, and speed up the aging process. It can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
Beachcomber hot tubs can help! A daily 20-minute session of massage and hydrotherapy can help manage and reduce the symptoms of stress. How?
Proven by Science
Immersing yourself in warm water is proven to combat the effects of stress. By soaking in a hot tub with massaging jets, it will help to relieve muscle tension, reducing the chances of you experiencing back pain and muscle aches. It also relieves cardiovascular stress on your heart, improving blood flow and circulation throughout your body.
Elements of Therapy
Warm water hydrotherapy has 3 common components: heat, buoyancy, and massage. Heat relaxes the muscles throughout the body. Buoyancy reduces the body’s weight in water by 90 percent, helping with exercise and movement. The massage component helps ease the tension spots, allowing the body to release endorphins, which ease the feeling of pain.
Results You’ll Experience
After 15 minutes of hydrotherapy, muscles start to relax, which means you can stretch your muscles with less pain. After 20 minutes of hydrotherapy, aches and pains, caused by stress become less intense. After three hydrotherapy treatments, your immune system gets stronger. You’ll have more energy and you won’t feel sick or tired as often. After five sessions, any tension, physical, and emotional pain decreases significantly. After ten sessions, pain relief is noticeable, and some gain a better sense of well-being.
