Say goodbye to insomnia by enjoying a daily spa session!
The spa allows your body’s internal thermostat to lower your body temperature and you’ll slip into a deeper, more relaxing sleep. The spa also relieves tension in your body, providing a natural remedy – unlike prescription or over-the-counter medicines and alcohol, which cause you to feel sleepy but which have other, harmful side-effects. The National Sleep foundation – « soaking in hot water, such as a hot tub before retiring to bed can ease the transition into a deeper sleep. » (National Sleep foundation Website, 2005)
The spa accelerates the natural healing process, reducing levels of pain and fatigue and relieving muscle pain caused by exercise.
It also lowers blood pressure, relaxes the muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, which act as natural painkillers.
It increases the rate of blood flow and improves the circulation, while speeding up the body’s natural processes to eliminate toxins, which are replaced by oxygen and the body’s natural nutrients.

Potential benefits for those who suffer from chronic illness include a reduction in blood sugar levels.
The spa also improves sleep and the overall sense of well-being, and is particularly useful for people who are unable to perform exercises on a hard surface.
Arthritis / Chronic pain
The spa uses heat, massage and the buoyancy of water to provide relief from these conditions, all in the comfort of your own garden – as if you had your own personal masseur!
The hot water raises the temperature of the body and dilates the blood vessels to improve the circulation, while the buoyancy of the water reduces the weight of the body by around 90%, reducing the workload for your heart up to 20 percent, relieving the pressure on the joints and muscles, thereby making exercise more accessible.
The spa also makes it easier to move the joints and restores and preserves the strength and flexibility of your joints while protecting them from further damage. The warm water heats the joints and reduces inflammation.
It softens collagen tissues, making them more flexible and making your movements smoother and less painful, while providing a sufficient degree of resistance without aggravating pain in arthritic joints or weakened muscles, and can even restore muscle strength while helping you to move more fully.
The Arthritis Foundation – « Hydrotherapy is one method of using water to treat arthritis. The soothing warmth and buoyancy of the water makes it a safe, ideal environment for relieving pain. » (Practical help from the Arthritis Foundation, 2003 brochure)
