Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, Millennials…the list will continue to grow. At Olympic Hot Tub, we think that our most important identifier should be how we strive to take care of ourselves every single day.
Everyone can be—and should be–part of the Wellness Generation.
Our company has been an advocate of better health and well-being for 40 years. Our line of Hot Spring Spas and Vita Swim Spas are renowned for their amazing benefits for your mind, body and soul.
Three key factors provide great physical benefits when soaking in hot water:
Heat—Raises your body temperature and increases circulation.
Buoyancy—Immerse yourself neck-deep and you’ll eliminate your body weight by 90%, relieving pressure on muscles and joints.
Massage—Jets increase circulation, working to eliminate pain, stiffness and tension.
Taking a soak about an hour before bed will raise your core body temperature. As your body cools, it signals the brain it’s time to sleep. You’ll fall into REM sleep faster and wake up refreshed.
Enveloping yourself in hot water feels terrific. It mimics the cocooning effect experienced in the womb before birth…warm, quiet, and safe. And, the release of endorphins—the body’s natural feel good chemical—helps with stress reduction.
Immersing yourself in hot water with a steady temperature between 102◦ and 104◦F helps relieve tension and increase circulation, both key to overcoming headaches and migraines.
Over twenty years ago a study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. For those with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, the results of the study showed soaking at least 30 minutes a day in 102◦F + water helped with insulin production. It will also aid with circulation to fingers and toes to help combat peripheral neuropathy.
Hot tubbing together is a great way to promote trust, increase the sense of belonging and uniting you as a family. Investing a bit of time and energy in your family can tighten that core unit, make everyone feel safe and secure and raise happiness.
Swim spas enhance well-being. Water has the power to soothe and relax. Imagine stepping outside your door at the end of a long day and slipping into your very own swim spa. Swim for exercise, then kick back and relax.
Providing all the luxury and convenience of a lap pool in your own backyard, swim spas remove some of the barriers to a regular workout. No need to pack a bag and drive to a pool, just put on a suit and head outside. And best of all, swimming provides a full body workout.
Research has shown that regular exercise is beneficial for people with arthritis. Yet, exercising on land can also be painful. Being in water, however, eliminates gravity and pressure placed on joints. As they experience less pain, people with arthritis are better able to exercise muscles and reap the benefits regular exercising can bring.
Parkinson’s can cause stiff muscles and make it difficult to move. Hydrotherapy has been shown to help people with Parkinson’s improve balance and increase mobility.
For people with neuromuscular conditions, balance can be challenging. Hydrotherapy has been shown to be an effective treatment in helping to improve balance.
An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. That’s 1 in 5 people! Because of the buoyancy of water, hydrotherapy allows people to perform exercises that they just can’t do on land.
The effects of a swim spa are felt long after it’s over. After a soak, muscles and joints are relaxed. As your body temperature gradually lowers after a soak, all the elements of a peaceful pre-sleep state are in place. A good night’s sleep isn’t far behind.
We are a unique tribe that transcends age and generational stereotypes. We reconnect with nature, family and ourselves. We hope that you’ll join Olympic Hot Tub’s family of over 30,000 that make up the Wellness Generation.
