World Mental Health Day- Spa Benefits
Updated: Oct 25, 2019
World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health day on 10th October every year. The overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health.
Hot Tub water therapies are highly valued for their relaxing, rejuvenating and natural rehabilitative qualities. How we feel physically feel can affect how we feel mentally and in our Artesian Hot Tubs, there are 3 key elements combined to create a hydrotherapeutic, stress- relieving environment.
-Heat dilates blood vessels to increase blood flow to sore or damaged tissue
-Buoyancy reduces body weight by 90%, reliving pressure on joints and muscles.
-Massage works to relax muscles and relive pressure on nerves.
So with these 3 elements working together to make you feel temporarily relaxed, studies show that the combination of the hot water, the massage and the feeling of weightlessness can significantly reduce both mental and physical stress and decrease anxiety.
The jets in our Artesian spas are specifically placed to massage major pressure points for the ultimate in massage therapy. The hydrotherapeutic massage simulates several stress- reliving massage techniques. Deep tissue massage from our patented helix jets apply pressure to the muscle to release accumulated stress. The different intensities and direction of movement from the jets increase circulation to promote relaxation.
Raising your core body temperature for 15 minutes in warm water, 90 minutes before bedtime is scientifically proven way to induce a more restful sleep. Unlike the use of medications and prescription sleep aids, the circulation and warmth of each Artesian spa encourages the body to unwind and relax on its own. Also it is widely accepted that getting quality REM sleep has a multitude of positive effects on just about everything from your mood to your mental alertness.
Then there is the social aspect of having a Hot Tub. Instead of sitting in front the television or your phone, relaxing spending quality time with family and loved ones in the outdoors is always going to improve your mood.
