Did you know that spending time in a hot tub before going to
bed could lead to a deeper and more peaceful sleep?
According to a recent poll by the National Sleep
Foundation, approximately 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders,
like insomnia, at least one night a week and this number is on the rise.
This lack of sleep can leave you feeling nervous, groggy
and depressed or cause erratic mood swings. Because sleep researchers believe
that insomnia can be traced to hectic, stressful lifestyles, many researchers
suggest that relaxing in a spa regularly before bedtime can be a simple
solution to this dilemma.
How important is a
restful night’s sleep? It is widely accepted that getting quality, REM
sleep has a multitude of positive effects on just about everything.
When lack of sleep becomes a chronic problem, it can start to
affect your body and mind in many ways.
consistently show that:

information to memory.
- Chronic sleep loss affects the way we
process and store carbohydrates, which can lead to weight gain.
- More serious sleep disorders have lead
- Over time, chronic sleep loss can diminish the disease-fighting
capabilities of the immune system.
A Natural Way To a Deeper and More Restful Sleep
study in the scientific journal Sleep showed that soaking in a hot tub prior to
bedtime could help insomniacs achieve a deeper, more relaxing sleep.
Taking a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about 90 minute before
going to bed allows your body temperature to adjust and enable a better nights sleep
naturally. Your body’s core internal thermostat
drops after leaving the water, which signals the body that it’s time to sleep.
The sleep improvement may
also be related to hot water’s relaxing properties – the buoyancy of water
reduces body weight by approximately 90%, relieving pressure on joints and
muscles, creating the sensation of weightlessness while leaving you feeling both mentally and emotionally relaxed.
Peace of Mind
Relax and focus on what’s
truly important – health and happiness.
