Battle Wintertime Aches and Stress with the Warmth of Your Hot Tub

(ALEXANDRIA, VA)  - Hey, baby, it’s cold outside! Beat winter’s chill by slipping into the soothing warmth of your own hot tub and allowing the bubbling waters to transport you back to your summertime happy place. An escape to your spa offers benefits for both mind and body, according to the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP).

“A home hot tub can help ease tired, achy arms and legs after a long day of skiing, snowboarding, skating or shoveling,” said Rich Gottwald, President and CEO APSP. “Relieving sore and achy joints is among the top reasons shoppers cite for considering a hot tub purchase, and the Arthritis Foundation endorses hydrotherapy for soothing stiff joints and tired muscles. On the flip side, the foundation says a warm water soak can get your body limber and ready for exercise or activity, too.”

If stress is keeping you from a good night’s sleep, a home spa could put you on your way toward dreamland.  A nice soak in a hot tub is one way to help you wind down and let your stress slip away.

The top reason shoppers cite for wanting a hot tub is to spend some time relaxing with a spouse or partner. What better time to focus on your relationship than during those long winter nights? And spending some quality time with that special someone could provide all kinds of benefits.
