Sleep Benefits of Hot Tubs Spas & Portable Spa Hot Tubs
Everyone knows that hot tubs ease muscle and joint pain, but did you know hot tubs can help you get a good night's sleep as well? According to a poll by the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders such as mild to chronic insomnia, pauses in breathing, and snoring. The poll found that 48% of women and 38% of men suffer from insomnia at least one night a week. This number is on the rise as shown by the growing number of sleep disorder centers across the nation (more than 3,000 in the U.S. today).
Many sleep experts believe that most cases of insomnia are traced to hectic, stressful lifestyles lived by healthy people. The results of sleep deprivation are varied and may cause battered nerves, grogginess, memory lapses, depression, and erratic mood swings.
For those of you who need help falling asleep, hot tubs and spas can help you get the night of sleep that you need. Recent studies have shown that hot water therapies from hot tubs induce sleep. The scientific journal "Sleep" showed that relaxing in hot tubs before bedtime will help someone fall asleep quicker and fall into a deeper sleep. It is suggested to soak in a hot tub spa at 104 degrees Fahrenheit an hour or two before bedtime for best results.
So how do hottubs help your body enter a deep sleep? According to a recent study in the scientific journal Sleep, a drop in body temperature can help to ease your body into a deeper, more relaxing sleep. Therefore it is suggested that you soak in a hot tub (103Â° F) approximately 90 minutes before bedtime. This causes the body's internal thermostat to pull your temperature down, enabling sleep to set in with more ease. An ideal way to achieve this is to take a 15-minute soak in a hot tub before bed. This therapeutic use of hottubs is called Hydrotherapy. The beauty of a hot tub induced sleep is that it is a natural remedy, unlike dangerous alternatives such as prescription drug sleeping aids, over-the-counter medication, and alcohol all of which can make you feel groggy in the morning and have other adverse side effects. Hot tubs and hot tubs are your safest, most relaxing way to get a good night of sleep.
