Which Hot Tub is Good for Your Health?

By Lindon Subscribe to RSS | July 24th 2012 | Views:

In Ireland, hot tubs are a great way to relax, especially in cool weather. Not only are they therapeutic and bring big health benefits, but also promote stress relief. Before buying a hot tub the first step is to take a look at the different types available so that you can choose the best one for you. This decision would be based on:

• Your budget

• The features you want

• The number of people who will use the tub

• The size of the tube based on space available

• Where you want it installed

Hot tubs can be broadly categorized into four types. They are:

The inflatable hot tub

This is suitable for those with limited space, is easy to set up and can be transported anywhere. This is also a good idea if you are not fully decided about installing a tub. Usually made of durable material, no plumbing is required. All you have to do is inflate it and fill it with water. The heating is through a motor and heating element that needs an electric socket to work. Although inflatable hot tubs are cheaper, they have their shortcomings. They are not insulated and lose heat fast.

The wooden tub

Similar to the conventional hot tub, wooden tubs are made from specific woods and can be installed anywhere outside. Heating can be through gas, propane or the traditional fire. They are expensive and must be installed over a concrete surface. Water jets are hard to install in them.

Acrylic hot tub

These are very popular. Simple in design and equipped with a number of features from lighting to jets to other equally exciting features, the acrylic spa presents you with a number of options. They cost more than the inflatable spa. They can be highly customised and are easy to set up. Once connected to a water supply and plugged in to a power source, they are ready to use.

Ground hot tub

These are sturdy spas installed in the ground. They are invariably an extension of a pool system sharing the same power source, motor and filters. Inground spas cost the most as they must be constructed by professionals. They are sturdy and permanent.

The health benefits

All the above hot tubs offer the facility of relaxing in hot water. Based on your budget, you can choose the one that suits you best. Depending on which type you decide on, maintenance can be an important factor. That being said, the health benefits of hot tubs in Northern Ireland are manifold. They use the concept of hydrotherapy or the power of water in healing and have been proven to help lower blood pressure, boost circulation, reduce joint pain and help the user lead a healthy life.

You can also hire a hot tub in Northern Ireland and still enjoy all the health benefits. Soaking in the hot water can relieve pain from headaches, back ache, joint inflammation and arthritis. A significant health feature of hot rubs is the buoyancy effect that frees you from having to support your body. This helps in the healing process.
