Millions of people each year suffer from stress related depression. Whether it’s due to financial matters, family issues or work-related problems, stress and depression can strike at any time. While more serious forms of depression may call for a doctor’s care, Jacuzzi hot tubs can actually help relieve some of the stress and help calm your nerves.
Stress puts unnecessary work on our body and strain on our health. It causes the heart to have to work more hard and this can cause problems with digestion and breathing. In fact, more than 80% of common diseases have a relation to stress.
The way a Jacuzzi hot tub helps with stress related depression is with three major components:
- Environmental Heat. The heated water from a hot tub causes an internal shift in the body’s core temperature. This causes it to feel more relaxed and helps with sleeplessness. If you’ve ever taken a warm bath in order to help with insomnia or to calm your nerves then imagine that comfort not only multiplied but enveloping you in a relaxing atmosphere.
- Massage. Many people get massages because of its healing benefits. It releases toxins in the body and one of the main attractions of a massage is that it feels good and relaxes the muscles. A hot tub works the same way by using jets of water that massage your body. Instead of a pair of hands in one spot, you get massaged all over at the same time.
- Buoyancy. By being buoyant in a Jacuzzi, there is less stress on your body. This is ideal for aching joints and muscles but where it helps to relieve stress related depression is that you are combining the relaxation with hydrostatic pressure, which helps your lungs and heart become stronger.
While a hot tub may not be a cure for all kinds of depression, it definitely will help those with stress related depression by being in a warm, relaxing environment that helps the body feel better.
