Whether it’s to unwind from the complexities of everyday life or to rejuvenate sore muscles and joints caused by sports or everyday activity, hydrotherapy can help you feel better – naturally.
You can actually improve your athletic performance by doing two things: using your hot tub both BEFORE and AFTER you exercise.
Before You Exercise
Soaking in a hot tub before exercising relaxes your body and loosens muscles, making exercise easier and reducing the risk of injury. A pre-exercise soak will also help to improve performance. In fact, some golfers swear it has actually reduced a couple strokes off their game.
After You Exercise
Soaking in a hot tub after exercising is a great way to wind down after the exercise and to relax your muscles. The hot, swirling water embraces you… massaging your neck, shoulders, arms, back, thighs, calves, and feet. But most importantly, hot tub use after you exercise will greatly reduce or even eliminate the stiffness typically felt the next day.
