What are the Health Benefits of Hot Tubs?
Saunas* have been used for thousands of years and are thought to have originated in Finland. Early saunas were created by digging into embankments, with later saunas built primarily using logs.
Research suggests that saunas help with arthritis and joint inflammation and that sauna use has been recommended for the treatment a range of conditions including chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. There is even evidence to suggest that saunas may increase athletic performance and recovery from intense exercise and help to relax the mind as well as the body thanks to the range of beneficial hormones that are produced as the body reacts to the heat. Carefully monitored and prescribed sauna use is associated with increased longevity and reduced blood pressure.
Invented in 1956 by the Jacuzzi brothers, hot tubs are able to produce similar effects to saunas in terms of relaxation and rejuvenation, with an additional benefit associated with lymphatic drainage thanks to the massaging properties of the jets of water. The massaging effect of hot tubs is also very relaxing and soothing and is said to aid sleep whilst the temperature of the water is known to alleviate joint pain and stiff muscles at the same time as aiding blood flow.
Please note that although saunas and hot tubs have been shown to be beneficial for a range of physical and psychological symptoms, you should always consult a doctor before using one if you have any medical conditions. In addition, it is important to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated due to the pronounced increase in sweating.
*Please note that as of November 2017 the spa has a swim spa & hot tub but no saunas
The Health Benefits of Green Space & Swimming
Our Nordic Spa is set in 180 acres of beautiful greenery and woodland which helps to provide a picturesque setting for gateways to the Yorkshire Wolds. Spending time outside and in natural environments such as woodland is reported to produce a vast range of psychological benefits. Access to woodland, fields and ‘green space’ has been stated in scientific studies to have a positive impact on mental health, with reductions in anxiety and increased feelings of wellbeing reported after spending as little as 20 minutes outdoors. Combined with exercise such as swimming, time in nature can have quite a profound positive impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.
Utilising the entire body and working virtually every muscle, swimming is a fantastic way to keep fit and rejuvenate body and mind at the same time, with swimmers reporting feelings of being mentally refreshed after a dip. Reducing the risk of conditions and diseases including heart disease, swimming is a fantastic way to keep fit and healthy and combined with tranquil woodland surroundings it produces significant feelings of wellbeing and positivity.
