Do you get the winter blues or find yourself lacking the energy for simple tasks as the nights close in? You may well be suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which is to do with the lack of natural light we subject ourselves to during the winter months. According to, SAD can affect as many as a third of people in the UK.

During the months of December to February, more than 90% of us get up to go to work in the dark and return home after dark, and it’s far too easy to get into the routine of sitting inside and watching daytime television on those chilly winter weekends. However, it is proven that going outdoors and making the most of the natural light can significantly reduce SAD symptoms and ease stress at this hectic time of year. So why not make the most of the natural light in your free time by having a steamy soak in your very own luxury Sundance Spa garden hot tub? The hydrotherapeutic effects of our hot tubs will help to relax your muscles, decrease blood pressure and even lead to an improved night’s sleep.

A hot tub will help stimulate your body and mind so you’re ready to face the world again.  There are numerous health benefits associated with the healing power of water. In this blog post we’ve highlighted some of the main ailments that can be alleviated by taking an occasional dip into your hot tub.

Hot tubs can provide relief from stress

Everyone experiences stress at some point in their lives. Warm water immersion has been proven to reduce the hormones associated with stress.  Dipping into a hot tub will also help separate you from the cause of stress, which can further decrease anxiety.  A recent study also suggested that along with relaxation, bathing in a hot tub could have a positive effect on your memory and the performance of cognitive tasks, such as problem solving.

Hot tubs have healing benefits

A study at the Mayo Clinic found that soaking in a hot tub gives many of the health benefits associated with exercise but with less strain on the heart. A dip in hot water initially speeds up the heart to send blood to the surface and disperse extra body heat into the air. After a while, the warm blood causes the blood vessels to dilate. This lessens the resistance to blood flow and lowers blood pressure.

Hot tubs can help ease arthritis and joint pain

The buoyancy in hot tub water can reduce your body weight by 90% when submerged.  This helps reduce the pressure on your joints and muscles, allowing soothing exercises to be performed. The power produced by the jets within the hot tub also provides massaging qualities for your joints and areas of pain or discomfort.
