It might come as a surprise to you, but not everyone who owns a hot tub or spa keeps it running during the Fall and Winter months. For those of you that choose to close your spas during these months, check out these benefits to keeping your spa open from Jacuzzi.

Benefits of Using a Hot Tub During Cold Months

During the cold winter months, soaking in a hot tub gets even better. The heat of the crystal-clear water becomes a delicacy and your escape from the cold weather. Of course, there are many more benefits than simply thawing your frozen feet.

1. Exercising in the hot tub

When it’s cold outside, it can become more difficult to exercise. The days of simply throwing on a pair of running shoes and heading outside for a run or hike is temporarily a thing of the past. Winter can make going to the gym even more difficult for those who don’t wish to travel during snowstorms or when the roads are covered in snow and ice.

Your hot tub is the perfect place to exercise in the comfort of your own backyard when it’s cold outside. There are many exercises that can be done inside your hot tub that help improve toning, weight management, and overall health. The buoyancy of the water creates an environment to exercise that is much easier on your muscles and joints. You can begin your exercise regimen with a comfortable warm-up, or some yoga, and finish with luxurious, post-workout relaxation.

2. Escape the cold weather

A fresh snowfall can have a beautiful aesthetic appeal. Unless you are all bundled up or watching from inside, it can be hard to truly enjoy the beauty of nature and your surroundings. Even when you’re wearing all the necessary winter gear and accessories, you can still get cold and risk getting sick. Hot tubs provide a warm, jet-infused environment that is perfect for absorbing the serenity of a clean, white snowfall while helping your immune system naturally.

You are given the opportunity to increase the temperature, turn on the jets, grab a book, or listen to music, while you truly enjoy the outdoors. From the inside of your hot tub, you won’t have to experience the negative aspects of the freezing winter weather while you enjoy the peaceful setting of your backyard retreat.

3. Hot tubs and stress relief

Often, the winter months come with a variety of added stress. Constantly shoveling snow, cleaning snow and ice from vehicles, driving on icy roads, and performing any car maintenance outside can put stress on the body. For some, winter is also the holiday season. With the holidays comes shopping, traveling, cooking, and planning. The pressure of the holidays on top of regular life and winter weather can add even more unwanted stress.

Over the course of several months, this can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Spending regular time in your hot tub to simply relax and experience the healing properties of the bubbling water during hydrotherapy treatments can help to relieve stress, improve sleep patterns and soothe sore muscles and aching arthritic joints.
